Namaste yoga family! Happy almost-spring! A much-belated post updating my whereabouts and teaching schedule/plans, I know this check-up in is much overdue … but alas! We are here and all is well and after traveling around the world, teaching most of the last 2 years in South and Southeast Asia (a more detailed post about these adventures and all that I learned will follow shortly), I’ve landed in New York and am setting up shop in Brooklyn for the moment to ground myself in the good yoga vibes here (or, more likely, to help busy city dwellers find some peace and balance in their hectic lives) and get some new projects off the ground.
Others will come out in due time, but, first and foremost, *online* classes are FINALLY here! Both private and group classes are available through this platform, with options for direct booking, registering for a series of live classes, and downloading old classes. This means that, for one thing, wherever you are in the world, we can still practice together! For another, you can take classes live; you can download them later; and you have access to them forever, so you can keep going back to them! No excuses for missing class now or not finding your way onto the mat.
We start at the very beginning. The first offering will be YOGA BASICS, an 8-class series that meets twice per week on Tuesdays and Fridays at 5:30 p.m. Eastern time. The idea behind offering the class twice instead of once per week is that I’ve found in my own practice and witnessed in students that your practice really starts to take off, and the benefits of yoga start to be felt in not only your body but your whole life when you commit to practicing more than once per week. We’ll start by going back to basics and really getting into the fundamentals of Himalayan Hatha Yoga, because no matter where you are in your practice, it never hurts to go back to the foundations. In fact, it’s necessary to do it periodically. The series is open to all levels from beginner to advanced, but that doesn’t mean it will be easy – as anybody who knows me will attest, we will be working hard, building strength through the breath, and going in deep.
I plan to continue offering these classes as a series – as a series of series! – so we’ll see which times work best as this develops. In addition to Hatha, look for future classes in Prana Kriya Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama, and more. I’m open to suggestions and invite your feedback on these courses. Message me or leave your comments below. It’s all new territory for me too, and I can’t wait to get this started.
As mentioned above, 1:1 online lessons of any variety – hatha, prana kriya, meditation, etc. – are also available at any time and can be booked individually or in a package rate HERE. They can also be done in person in Brooklyn or Manhattan by messaging me through the form below!
Well, that was the big announcement. After so much travel and teaching in disparate places, it makes me very happy that modern technology now makes it easy to not only keep in touch, but furthermore to keep practicing with my yoga tribe around the world. The yoga revolution is beginning!
In other news, look for a confirmed date for my annual Yoga & Meditation retreat in South India to be announced soon (hint: late November/early December 2019).
If you like your yoga the old-fashioned way, regular weekly classes and workshops – and private lessons too – are available at Greene Moments Studio in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn (among other places, soon to be announced). As always, my full, updated teaching schedule, including regular classes and workshops, can be found on my Facebook page and here.
Like the Spring crocuses, I’m emerging from my winter slumber and blossoming, sprinkling yoga offerings in New York and beyond. I hope we can connect in one of those spaces, and that your yoga practice continues to nourish you wherever you are.
Blessings of love and light. Om shanti.
