“I recently did my 200hr Intensive Yoga Teacher Training at the Oceans of Calm Yoga studio in Tuxedo, N.Y. With Colby Rolando. It was life changing… I am beyond grateful to have had this opportunity to study the sacred practice of Yoga with Colby for she is a plethora of wisdom and truly a skilled teacher.

To anyone interested in taking a Yoga Teacher Training, I would highly and very happily recommend doing so at Oceans of Calm.

My understanding of yoga- asana, how to teach asana to others, and my own practice have transformed immensely. Deep gratitude to Colby for being an incredible teacher.” ~Victoria W.



“Teaching yoga truly is my heart’s passion and purpose – and my practice, an intimate act of relationship to life and the breath, and connection to spirit. I love helping people unlock the magic and mystery of their breath, body and soul, bringing greater presence, depths of love and connection and authentic, inspired action forward in their lives.

I was first introduced to yoga through a Bikram class on the Upper East Side in New York City, in which I left feeling profoundly transformed in some beautiful and freeing way.  Being a classically trained dancer of 25 years, this new and exciting way of breathing, being and moving deeply inspired me. This led to my 500-HR training with senior teachers Chrissy Carter and Jodie Rufty of YogaWorks NYC and to my decade of studies with spiritual teacher Derek O’Neill, who has profoundly and positively impacted my life in ways I could not have imagined.

My practice and my teaching consist of purposeful, precise, passionate, pranayamic-based fluid action and movement. My intention for students is to find their heart’s fire within where truth, wisdom, and peace reside.”
