Allie and Ray Nunzi of The Leadership Studio invite those unfamiliar with yoga to explore the many depths of the universal practice.

Which instructor Ray says is key to a well-balanced life - connecting the mind and soul.

“It’s really good just for your mental health within you know taking what you practice on the mat and taking it off the mat really is helpful in just your everyday life,” said Ray.

Allie, the executive director of The Leadership Studio, agrees.

“It can really overhaul your whole life, not just on the yoga mat but in your relationships, the food that you eat, the way that you view the world, all things like that,” said Allie.

The couple will kick off their six-week Welcome to Wellness program this week.

It is free and open to the public and introduces Baptiste Yoga.

“We’ll break it down for beginners and people who have been practicing for however long," said Ray. "And really just honing in on a strong practice. We’re also going to talk about meditation, just people’s lives and it’s kind of a nice way to kick off the new year.”

The Nunzi's say it is also nice to be a part of the community of businesses working to revitalize a piece of Atlantic City.

“The Tennessee Avenue Renaissance Project which is inside what we’re deeming now the Orange Loop, which is Tennessee Avenue and New York Avenue," said Allie. "We’re happy to be a part of it we are connected to, collaborate with very hyperlocal entrepreneurs that are committed to creating safe, fun, unique things to do for the city which is different outside of you know the gaming and the bar scene that existed here for so long."

The yoga studio plays host to various events and programs, including the Champions of Youth Program and a donation-based community class on Saturdays.

“The majority of our classes are heated which is great for the middle of winter especially here up north so come get warmed up and move your body, sweat, breathe and be together,” said Allie.
