We exist to move people.
— Coco Teodoro

Cocomotion’s mission statement:

 

What this means is that we practice asana. Asana is the physical movement within a yoga practice. We are teaching others to tie breath, focus, and body movement together, creating a flow. Flow means, ease. Ease helps you do what you do on the mat, and then follows you off the mat.

What we do in our classes is designed to make you stronger, more flexible, and gives you a meditation experience. No one will be bored in these classes, and everyone can get deep into their own bodies.  We look at a 3000 year old philosophy to get stronger, and truthfully to eliminate your gym membership. Through our movement, your body becomes your gym.

We are a yoga studio that focuses on meditation, movement and breath. We emphasize on the Asana (Physical movement) and Pranayama (Breath work) practice to help us with our every day lives. To bend easier, sit easier, and pick things up easier. Through repetition in our classes, we build up your heart rate and create a room of working bodies. This allows people to lose weight, feel good and introduce an overall holistic wellness for everyone walking in and out of the door.

For a lot of people who practice with us, it is to help them let go and come back to a meditative flow. Meditation is one point of focus for a certain amount of time. We want to be a studio that focuses on asana, pranayama, and meditation all together. We pride ourselves in being the people who help you build the foundation for your yoga practice. Opening you up to what comes next; that is, if you would like. We are yoga for the regular people, and for the masses. We give everyone a chance and opportunity to do yoga on all levels.

“We exist to move people” is more then the word movement, meaning to physically move. It can be how you look at the world, how you breathe, how you experience relationships, and how you look at your life. People become more open and vulnerable through their body and their perspective.

“I hope what we do moves people to be the best person they can be. Lets move!”

- Coco

Love is a state of existence. Yoga will guide you to the thoughts that disturb the inherent health and well being that already exist at your core. Discovering your breath will allow you to trust that your happiness already lies within your soul.

The yogic path is the journey of our union with the heartbeat of the Universe, the essence which resides in all of us. We are all One. Aum. We are Limitless. Ananta. We are all made of energy and our nature, just like the universe, is movement and change. Spanda

Sometimes we collectively forget the truth of who we are, love & light. It’s not just about “me.” We forget we must collaborate with each other to serve the healthy function of the whole civilization.

OUR COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT IS A COLLECTION OF STORIES AND INTERVIEWS ABOUT THE BEAUTIFUL MEMBERS OF OUR FAMILY THAT HAVE MOVED US IN A WAY THAT WE’VE NEVER BEEN MOVED BEFORE.

IN THIS MONTHS NEW COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT WE HAD THE BLESSING TO SIT AND TALK WITH BARBARA WELTSEK, A LOCAL ARTIST AND BELOVED STUDENT, ABOUT HER YOGIC JOURNEY, INSPIRATIONS, AND CREATIONS.

What moves you Barbara to create such beauty thought art? and to then share it so freely and fearlessly?

Wow! "Freely and fearlessly"- Not!  I wanted to fill the blank space where it now hangs and knew the materials I'd like to see there.  I tried to make it a collaboration because I didn't want to be presumptuous in hanging my "art" on someone else's real estate!  The doing can be fearless; the sharing, not so much. I have no training and often wonder if that holds me back.

Why do you create?

I have always created something-painted discarded fencing to flags, fairy gardens in my yard- living plants, my vegetable garden has art elements-I built my potting bench from garbage, an ancient copper screen bears my version of Starry Night. My husband brings home items thrown in the garbage that he thinks I can transform.  He's very inspiring with his challenges. I hang on to things other toss and wait for them to talk to me. My daughter's old bed slats told me to do this.

of all the spaces + studios to practice yoga + meditation why did you choose us, the speakeasy of breath and movement tucked in next to a trash compactor in the back parking lot of Marshals? `

This past October I had to make some major changes in my life for my health and I had done yoga about 10 years ago.  There was in a quaint storefront with a devoted teacher and a fabulous group. She lost her lease and rented the corner of a karate studio.  The vibe was killed. I stopped. November past I looked for another quaint studio. I tried 6 studios and did not feel anything beyond rote poses.  I tried Coco's. The community is just that- a community. People talk to each other and share non-yoga elements of their lives. The teachers seem to float effortlessly and treat students as if they can too.  It's a very loving atmosphere. And there is poetry and beauty in the words I hear from them in class. It seems those words flow into gently commandments unique to the Coco practice. (and Coco's unique prompts peppered in salty terms) I've been to other studios.  I've not heard poetic encouragement or words beyond prompts. I codified the words that touched me uttered by unaware teachers just being their nurturing selves. And the bonus of art appreciation tied into yoga is inspirational in itself.

But Barbara, this creation is truly one of a kind, what is the divine madness that inspired such moving work of art?

This piece I’ve titled "Coco's Commandments" and I wanted the slats to mimic the stained lumber at your flagship Patchogue Village location. I wanted the "COCOMOTIONYOGA" in brushed silver letters to form an "X" from corner to corner, forwards and backwards (like yoga moves).

But the puzzle to me is the real art; fitting the poetic language and Coco's tag lined (breathe muthafucka, show up shit changes, etc. was a challenge that took over  months- I'd hear something new and have to rearrange things- but what a joyful project.

In hanging it, I wanted to bring in Coco's Urban Zen aesthetic and used chains and locks- that's also why the X letters are brushed metal.

As stated, I was tentative about being presumptuous that you'd want to hang it. But the vibe of the studio lends itself to some fierceness. And when Christianne popped over and encouraged me- I thought it was be OK.  

I am so moved by nurturing people, unique places and garbage my ever-loving husband challenges me with.

We love you guys and I look forward to art and yoga with you!

Barbara we are so thankful for you sharing your story, inspiration, and light with us and our community, BIG LOVE!

coco MOTION

Our signature Class.

This is a standard sequence that begins with an awakening series leading into a beautifully bold vinyasa flow. Partnered with the movement, the environment is created for the mover to push themselves through challenge with breath(pranayama). True meditation exists within the motion. The flow presents challenges to the students as opportunities to experience the truth of the body and its connection to mind and spirit. This is an exhilarating flow for a free life.

basic MOTION

Experience our signature cocomotion sequencing at a slower pace, so you can build a solid foundation with healthy alignment and breath awareness.

Personal attention, modifications, and use of props make this class perfect for both beginners and seasoned practitioners seeking more knowledge and precision!

Recommended for newer yogis as preparation for our Open level classes.

lsd MOTION

This experience is a guaranteed trip.

The fusion of Yin yoga with our traditional flow will create a euphoric, deeply meditative, mind melting, heart opening experience.

The flow aspect of this journey will ask us to call upon our strength + balance. The heat and internal awareness we cultivate will help us burn off excess energy and allow for a quieting of our bodies and minds in order to drop more fully into the Yin shapes.

These longer...deeper... held shapes and stretches are designed to release connective tissues and create space and integrity in the joints -and the mind- and allow for our energy to flow freely.

We will together explore a completely organic, radically altered state of consciousness in safe space through our breath, movement, radiating stillness, + surrender.

zen MOTION

ZenMotion is a relaxed flow of passive stretching. We go into 10-12 traditional poses for about 5 minutes each, using blocks and bolsters to ease gently into the form. Light massage and essential oils add to an amazing zen way to begin your day

restorative ZEN sessions

Rest, restore and renew with relaxed yoga poses using bolsters, blocks and blankets, and light massage with essential oils. The last 30 minutes of our practice we will be guided through a yoga nidra meditation.
No yoga or meditation experience necessary.
