New York Yoga, the first Yoga studio to come to Manhattan's Upper East Side, was founded in 2001 to make all types of Yoga accessible to everyone. New York Yoga is a multi-disciplinary studio with vinyasa as our featured style. Our philosophy is to offer many variations and levels to satisfy all practices. We offer a spiritual element, but we do not identify with any particular religion. With over 100 classes and specialty workshops every week, New York Yoga makes yoga accessible to all.
The New York Yoga Studios teach a vinyasa flow style that incorporates aspects of Ashtanga, Iyengar and Viniyoga practices. Classes flow through five general stages, warm up (sun salutations), standing poses, balancing poses, seated poses and cool down poses (inversions and savasana). Within this framework all types of postures can be incorporated, including backbends, twists, and binds. Instruction in the practices of pranayama, drishti, meditation and philosophy are interwoven in the textures of the flow practice. Readings, Sanskrit chants, and music are incorporated to enhance the yoga experience and create a space for personal transformation and spiritual development. Our instructors come from a broad background of styles representing lineages derived from the father of modern yoga teachers Krishnamacharya.
