Meet Your Teachers/Mentors

Phoebe Miller comes from a strong movement background. She received her BFA in Modern Dance from University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where she studied technique, anatomy, kinesiology, and pedagogy. As a professional dancer in New York City, her studies continued and she earned her Pilates certification from the Kane School of Core Integration, 500 hour Certification (ERYT500) under the guidance of her mentor Jeanmarie Paolillo from YogaWorks and Restorative/Therapeutics training with Jillian Pransky from YogaWorks.

Her teaching career began in college when she was practically thrown into teaching Modern Dance for the summer program at The Pennsylvania School of Ballet. She continued her teaching career at various studios/programs and her own private Pilates/yoga business in New York City since 2002. Phoebe made the move to the Hudson Valley in 2010 when she shortly thereafter founded and directed the yoga program, Yoga at The Roundhouse as part of the boutique hotel, The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls in Beacon, NY. In 2014, she she began a new endeavor and founded  nOMadbringing new experiences on and off the mat to yogis at nOMad’s Online Studioon yoga retreats, and at community events. Her mission through nOMad is to give her students the tools to live a fuller life with more joy, gratitude, confidence, and connection.

Phoebe finds gratitude in the magical, simple, and even the tragic moments in life. She sees that all of these are gifts from the universe to guide us in the dis-covering of our deepest treasures and desires. Some have said Phoebe leads a life full of alchemy, creating something out of nothing but the reality of it is we all have this power. If we take time to step back, look a little closer at our road maps of life, observe all of our interconnectedness, and dig a little deeper, we all have the power to attract the magic of life.

Phoebe’s teaching focuses on the importance of alignment, breath, and mindfulness and the integration of the practice into daily life. Through her teaching of asana in a supportive and playful atmosphere, students gain a more profound understanding of their own body, mind, and purpose. Phoebe demonstrates that with practice, patience, courage, and compassion, yoga can open a world of greater possibilities and deepen the connection to one’s core being. Her mission through teaching is to simply hold space for her students to explore and to remember the gifts they already have within them. Visit Phoebe’s website or read Phoebe’s profile here


Samantha Fulton is honored to be serving the Hudson Valley community and beyond through nOMad. She brings a variety of offerings with her to the yoga practice. She is a licensed physical therapist with over 10 years of experience working with all walks of life. Samantha’s yoga training was in the classical ashtanga system, and uses that foundation to adapt each practice to her audience. She has a strong knowledge base of anatomy and physiology, and has taught these topics in several workshops and teacher training programs.

Samantha values and honors differences in body type, lifestyle, ability level, and experience. Infused into her classes are principles of alignment, therapeutic movement, yoga philosophy, breathwork, and music/mantra. Samantha’s teaching style has been described as intelligent, compassionate, challenging, and diverse. Her passion for teaching comes from the yearning to share the impact of yoga and mindfulness with others, especially those that may not be drawn to a typical yoga class.

Samantha recently left the clinical world as a physical therapist, in order to connect with and serve her patients in a deeper way. In addition to teaching group classes and online for nOMad, she now works out of her home studio, providing private yoga therapy to her clients. She is also a wife and mother of 2 young children. The many facets of yoga have not only changed her physical and mental workings, but it has greatly influenced her approach to relationships, life challenges, parenting, and many other areas of her human experience. Come and meet her! Learn more about Sam here. Visit Samantha’s website or read Sam’s profile here.

Infusing positive energy and inspiration he uses music, humor, storytelling and poetry to create a fun, and safe space to de-stress the mind, strengthen the body and connect to spirit.

Corinna Farzan-Ricard’s classes have been called deeply intentional, all-inclusive, poetic and supportive. She creates an atmosphere in which students are encouraged to attend closely to sensation and breath. Her instruction empowers students to cultivate dialogue with their own bodies for a practice in service of healing and function rather than aesthetic or postural achievement.

Corinna offers a healthy dose of alignment cueing while supporting students in self-exploration of posture and movement. All bodies are different and no asana is one size fits all. That being said, expect the unexpected. Corinna’s classes are playful, challenging and crafted to surprise students into shedding fear of trying something new.

The physical practice is just the tip of the iceberg. Breath-work, chanting, philosophy, poetry, and plenty of humor are sprinkled throughout for a comprehensive and transformative experience. Corinna has most recently plunged into the wondrous world of yin yoga which has quickly stolen her heart and shifted her approach to yoga’s physical practice.

Certified at the 500-hour level, Corinna has studied with and been inspired by many of the incredible teachers in New York’s Hudson Valley including Sondra Loring, Leigha Butler, Jacquie Nash, Kelly Kamm, Raghunath Cappo and Will LeBlanc among others.

Corinna teaches for nOMad always at OM’s online studio, teacher trainings and various events curated by founder Phoebe Miller. Additionally, she and Leigha Butler co-lead Be Love, a meditation and yoga immersion in Tulum, Mexico with a mission to nourish and spark spiritual warriors, super souldiers and selfless servants around the world.

“My 300-hour teacher training with nOMad was a life-changing experience. As a result of this training, I am able to create and and guide students through intentional, intelligent practices, and I feel capable of addressing individual needs during both private and group classes. After completing the training, I feel I’m a more confident and competent teacher, yogi, and human being.  If you’re considering becoming a yoga teacher, look no further than nOMad for your training, you won’t regret it-my only regret is that at some point it came to an end!”

– Erin Bedenbaugh, nOMad 300 hr grad December 2017


“nOMad’s teacher training gave me the confidence I needed to grow as a teacher. The content was well rounded, from anatomy and alignment to philosophy and business, and everything in between. The mentorship program gave me the one on one attention that I need to thrive.”

-Emily Rose, nOMad 300 hr grad December 2017

I am so ready to starting teaching!
