I AM You Studio


Passionate about connecting with people, Persiana has led classes all over the world - from the exotic beaches of SE Asia & the Caribbean, to the urban jungle of NYC and the alkaline soil of Burning Man.

After a career in children's advertising law, a stint as the editorial director of a photography magazine and modeling for Wilhelmina NY, Persiana turned to yoga when faced with a personal health crisis. Her journey to wellness inspired her to guide and empower you toward your best, most electric life ever, one breath at a time.

Persiana studied yoga & Thai massage in Bali with Pranashama Yoga Institute, and has completed teacher trainings with Strala Yoga & Pranayama Sadhana. She is a graduate of I.AM.YOU. Finishing School and partners with Exhale To Inhale in facilitating trauma sensitive yoga for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Persiana loves infusing pranayama, meditation and thoughtfully curated music in her classes, which are designed to leave you feeling open, fluid and relaxed.

She holds a MA in Media Studies from The New School & can order an Old Fashioned in seven languages.
