While in NY and waiting for spring to start the Yoga in Central Park, I love to go around town and experience the amazing variety and quality of Yoga that New York City has to offer. I often use groupon or classpass to find special offers.
Here are some of my recent favorite studios:
Ananda Ashram, Monroe, NY
This is my Yoga home.
I fell in love with Yoga and I took my teacher training there.
In addition to the fantastic Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga classes twice a day, to the Sanskrit classes and fire ceremony, there are always great workshops and live music performances.
It's a Nature sanctuary where you can meet like minded people, find silence and peace in the forest, and eat tasty vegan meal!
Jai Yoga Arts, Brooklyn, NY
I teach here every Tuesdays at 8:30pm when in NYC.
I love this studio because in addition to the excellent Yoga offer, it has become a lovely community of creative, smart, and eco-conscious people. The hot tea and nice chats after class are really priceless! Jai also offers a Teacher Training Program for anyone seeking to become a teacher, or a stronger practitioner in a familiar and comfortable environment!
3 Weeks for $30 for new students!
Solstice in Times Square:
Athleta Mind over Madness Yoga
Anyone can find tranquility on top of a mountain.
Can you find it in the middle of Times Square?
Every Summer Solstice you can Join the challenge!
Attend one or more of the 5 yoga classes throughout the day from 7:30am to 7pm: it will be a unique experience!
A lot of energy and a lot of new different new perspectives: it was great laying down and looking up at the Times Sq. buildings, and at the same time feeling the earth trembling under you for a train passing.
Highly recommended: I do it every year!
Jet Lag Festival
Within Jet Lag festival there is a camp dedicated to workshops, yoga, healing, live and electronic music, chill out area, hookah lounge, and body painting.
In 2012 I led a workshop dedicated to the Chakras, their psychological and physical aspects, and how to activate them.
The location in the shade under the trees with birds singing around us was priceless!
