Meet Your Hosts

About Charity

Charity Luyben began studying Yoga in 2007 while earning her Bachelors of Art in Music Education at The College of New Jersey. Under the instruction of Mark Moliterno, professional singer and creator of YogaVoice ™, Charity discovered Yoga philosophy and posture practice as a practical technology for physical, psychological and spiritual personal transformation. In 2011, she completed her 200-hour Classical Yoga certification at the YogaLife Institute in Wayne, PA under the direction of Bob and Kristin Butera. Charity has since completed her 500-hour certification through the YogaLife Institute and The Yoga Institute in Mumbai, India under the direction of Dr. Jayadeva and Hansaji Yogendra.
Charity teaches a variety of styles including Vinyasa, Power, Hatha and Beginner Yoga. A primary focus of Charity’s asana (posture) classes is the application of Yoga philosophy, an ancient, non-religious system for physical, mental and spiritual wellness. By incorporating this time-honored philosophy, Charity shares an enriching exploration of the Yoga practice with practical, real-life applications. A classically trained singer, Charity also brings the creative expression of the human voice to her classes through chant and sound.

About Christine

Christine began her love of yoga in 2008 when she was diagnosed the first time with cancer. Stepping on her mat created a sense of peace, health and a sense of community that was missing in her life. Curious by nature and a lifetime learner, the philosophy of yoga encouraged Christine to explore the mind body spirit connection. She became certified as a Professional Life Coach specializing in health and wellness working with individuals and conducting group workshops. Christine completed level 3 Reiki and continued her Mind Body journey with her 200 hour RYT yoga instructor certification at Honor Yoga in the Fall of 2014 with emphasis on an Iyengar practice.
Christine has a strong belief that in order to be wholly healthy, one must nurture the mind, the body and the spirit equally. She enjoys teaching beginners and advanced students alike knowing that everyone is her student and teacher. Christine teaches an alignment based practice coupled with mindfulness and strength building. She is intuitive to what her students need and is passionate about assisting students along their personal path to discover and realize their true definition of health and wellness.

About Gioia

“Embrace the Wobble!” “Smile!”
If you have been in Gioia’s class you have heard this before.
She believes that no matter what your age, conditioning, injuries, or limitations you can still enjoy the benefit, peace and joy that movement through yoga has to offer.
Gioia Fumo has been inspiring others to move in a mindful way for decades, way back to the days of thongs and leg warmers.
Gioia found peace, strength and balance on her mat from a regular yoga practice at a time of personal turmoil and change in her life. Yoga beacame the perfect compliment to her work in fitness as a Pilates and group fitness instructor.
She loved being a student once again, but it took the encouragement of the loving yogis around her to continue her journey to become a yoga teacher. She brings her years of experience and diverse training to her teaching.
While Gioia teaches all types of yoga she specializes in Chair, Gentle and Therapeutics as it is her calling to make yoga accessible to all.
“It does not matter if you are a rose or a lotus or a marigold what matters is that you are flowering.” – Osho

About Mare

Mare is studio manager and co-owner of Honor Yoga Pennington. She began her yoga journey 9 years ago when she took her first class. It was love at first asana and has been her passion ever since! In 2013 Mare was challenged by four large losses in her life and credited yoga for getting her through it. ” I, having experienced first hand what an amazing healing property yoga provides, wanted to be able to share that healing with others,” says Mare. As a single mother of three young girls, Mare decided to combine her passion of yoga and her over 20 years of experience as a manager into a new career. She became a RYT with Honor Yoga’s teacher training program in Spring of 2015 and was made manager of the studio shortly after graduating. Honor Yoga is a beginner friendly studio whose focus is to make yoga accessible to everyone. “We have all types of classes from Chair yoga, Restorative and Roots to Flow, Calm and Strong and Power!” “So, whether you are an experienced yogi or taking your very first class, we will help you find the perfect fit for You!” adds Mare.
“I adore my Honor Yoga Pennington community!” “I happily provide them with a loving and nurturing environment where they feel safe!” “I love my job and look forward to going to work each day!!”
