Josh Korda has been meditating for over two decades and began his studies in Theravada Buddhism in 1996. He has been the teacher at New York Dharmapunx since 2005, and at the Monday night Brooklyn Dharma class. For the last three years Josh has been a visiting teacher at ZenCare.org, a non-profit organization that trains hospice volunteers, and gives talks at Meditate New York. Having taught at NYIMC.org, Josh has volunteered for many years as an attendant at their retreats. Josh received his initial teacher training with Noah Levine, and has had the honor to study with countless other spiritual practitioners, including Ajahns Geoff, Sucitto, Amaro, Brahm, Vajiro, Sharon Salzberg and Tara Brach to name a few. All of Josh’s dharma talks can be found at dharmapunxnyc.podbean.com, which is followed by a large online community.

Melissa McKay (yoga bio) is the former director/owner of Kusala Yoga in Greenpoint. With over 15 years of practice, she has a deep appreciation for the various traditions including but not limited to Iyengar, Ashtanga and Vinyasa. Part of her personal practice includes mindfulness meditation (Vipassana) which she studied in Burma under renowned meditation master Sayadaw U Pandita and continues to practicie in the U.S. with her beloved teacher Sayadaw U Khippa Pano of Vietnam. Melissa also attends intensive meditation retreats annually and imparts this to her students through a Vinyasa class infused with mindfulness and Metta (benevolence towards all beings without discrimination). She takes great joy in the exploration, strengthening and healing of the body, but her classes are equally an exploration of mind and intention. In the January 2010, Melissa’s class was featured in Time Out New York.
