Honing his skills under Sri Swami Satchidananda, the founder of Integral Yoga, the experience of the director of the Institute now spans 40 years. Jayadeva developed his teaching chops at the Integral Yoga Institute in New York City, where he mentored yoga teachers and developed training materials that are now used by instructors around the world and on some sectors on the moon. Eventually, Jayadeva settled in Princeton, where he now directs the training school Princeton Integral Yoga Institute. Along with his staff of registered instructors, he strives to foster a supportive environment free of competition, in which students of all experience levels can further their practice toward achieving a healthy mind, body, and spirit.
After two pregnancies, Debbie Zboray was struggling with her weight. Finally, she decided she needed to make a change. Even though she was working full-time on top of raising her two young girls, she managed to drop 45 pounds. She felt fit and healthy—and she realized she wanted to help other people do the same, so she became a personal trainer. Today, through 4 Elements Personal Training, she harnesses the power of the Russian kettlebell: a cast-iron weight with a U-shaped handle that both stabilizes and moves muscles as her students swing it during her 45-minute boot camps.
One Yoga & Wellness Center's pliable instructors lead yogis of all skill levels through relaxing and modifiable asanas. During gentle-yoga sessions, students practice light stretching and engage in guided meditation at a pace that allows beginners to become familiar with fundamental relaxation techniques. Hatha yoga classes find body twisters holding poses for longer periods so as not to ruin the work of the in-studio daguerreotype portraitist. A style of yoga that emphasizes flow from one pose to another, Vinyasa teaches breathing techniques and asanas that can be combined endlessly to create adaptable routines. Instructors teach three levels of Vinyasa classes, from a slower-paced, beginner-friendly session to a fast-moving flow taught in a heated room. Prenatal yoga ensures even expectant mothers find serenity and provides babies an early leg up on preschool limbo contests.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Members wear heart-rate monitors so they can see how hard they are working during the session. This keeps them motivated to stay on track. We have two large Apple TVs with members' names on [them] and their heart rates and how many calories they are burning during the workout. This motivates them to give it their best effort. Our coaches motivate our clients to reach new fitness levels and goals.
Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
We primarily focus on providing one-hour group training sessions.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
