Welcome to MOVE TO LIVE Yoga and Fitness Studio!

MOVE TO LIVE came to life when Zaidee Bliss and Cailie Currin decided to combine their passions and skills to take the Align Again Yoga Studio (Greenwich, NY) in a new direction. Align Again Yoga Studio was created, owned, and operated by Zaidee since 2009.

Cailie purchased the studio from Zaidee in 2018 and brought her love of running a small business to the venture. Zaidee remains an integral part of MOVE TO LIVE as the master yoga teacher.

Both Zaidee and Cailie share a passion for yoga and functional movement. Zaidee focuses her work on teaching yoga instructors and sharing her commitment to a yogic lifestyle. Zaidee created the beautiful physical space that is the yoga studio.

Cailie Currin, Studio Owner, Yoga Instructor, Certified Personal Trainer, Cyclist, and CrossFit enthusiast.

Cailie has had a personal practice for many years. For her it offers a way to slow down her tendencies to move very quickly through life.  As a yoga teacher, her classes focus on preserving mobility, core strength and balance as she has found these to be the essential as we age. As a personal trainer, she emphasizes functional strength and stability.  Cailie is also currently pursuing a certificate program in Nutrition and Healthy Living through Cornell University because she has learned in her own life and in those she has taught that nutrition is the foundation for fitness.

Zaidee Bliss, Master Yoga Instructor, Teacher Training Instructor

Zaidee started teaching back when she was 16 at her local ice skating rink. From then on, teaching became a way for her to learn more about what she loves. Later, while working as a mediation and conflict resolution teacher in New York City public middle schools, she went to school at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition followed by her first teacher training for yoga at Kripalu. Zaidee taught at a few studios in New York City for a while before she moved to New Hope, PA and began her study of alignment based Hatha Yoga.

Currently, Zaidee is living in Easton, NY and teaching out of her dream studio in Greenwich, NY.  She studies continuously with different teachers and practices meditation with Paul Muller Ortega of Blue Throat Yoga.  

Zaidee’s classes are deeply influenced by her fascination with physics, the human body and the desire to find a sense of peace and real joy in every moment of life.  Her classes are well rounded and designed to suit the needs and levels of her students.  She pays special attention to correct alignment in order to more safely enhance her students’ practice while allowing them to align again with themselves.  Each class is unique and can have themes that relate to daily life or themes that are just kind of kooky and fun.  Meditation and the way we live are important parts of the yoga practice and emphasis is put on this practice in varying ways.  Zaidee wants everyone to love yoga as much as she does and is ready and able to help you integrate yoga and the lifestyle of yoga into your life. You can visit her personal website to learn more about her group programs and private coaching here.

Carol Hopper, Yoga Instructor

Carol knew for many years that studying yoga was in her future.  It was clear that it was a practice that was good for her body, mind and soul.   When living in Greenwich, Carol practiced with Zaidee at Align Again Yoga and has since completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training.  Through teacher training Carol has extensively studied and practiced meditation as well as focused on the importance of safe and proper alignment in yoga practice.  She has personally experienced the benefits of a regular practice through improved health, greater self-insight, and reduction of stress.   A warm, caring and supportive class that has a combination of challenging and soothing poses is what you’ll find in her classes.

George Green, Yoga Instructor

After retiring from a career in natural resource aviation, George wanted to find activities that challenge both the body and the mind.  Fortunately he found yoga and was able to develop an asana practice with some excellent teachers in various traditions while exploring his lifelong interest in philosophy and spirituality. George decided the best way to combine his love of the asana class experience and his desire to go deeper into breath techniques and meditation would be to take a teacher training.

He explored various schools of yogic thought and eventually found that Hatha yoga brought to him a sense of curiosity about our human condition as well as contentment with the process.  In the fall of 2011, he started a year long teacher training at Detox Yoga in Saratoga with Mark Kinder and on completion started teaching there, as well as at Align Again yoga in Greenwich.

George says, “I try to bring to my classes the skills helpful in reaching the serenity I experience when I practice, the maintenance of safety through alignment assists, and a curiosity in wondering about the connection of body mind and spirit”

Betty (RYT-200) began attending yoga classes about 10 years ago with Natasha Judson in Cambridge to improve her physical fitness. She soon realized that there was so much more to the practice which reignited her interests in comparative religions, depth psychology and early training in TM. It was clear that yogic studies could provide a road map for personal awareness, healing, and for exploration of spiritual growth. She trained in the Bhakti tradition with Gopi Kinnicut, formerly at Yoga Mandoli in Saratoga, and experienced her first yatra with Gopi and Gaura Vani to sites in India where the stories and traditions of a 5000 yr old wisdom continue to flourish. She completed an additional 40 hours in Restorative training with Ann Biasetti  and enjoys ending a class with 1 or 2 resting poses. She works as a Psychotherapist and has been subbing at the studio the past several years.
