YogaCity NYC | The NYC Directory for Yoga News, Studios, Classes & Events
About Us

YogaCity NYC was created to help an expanding community pursue tranquility, vibrancy, and conscious behavior - in the middle of this charged and crowded 24/7 urban environment we all call home.  
We started this website to support our practice, our schedule, our interests and build a stronger New York City community of yoga enthusiasts.   
Our comprehensive dynamic directory, event listings, class picks, news and features capture the passionate energy and amazing diversity of Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island.
We are here for New Yorkers; here to respond to a busy, playful, work-a-holic, charged, over-charged, breathless, windy, seems-like-it-never-stops-for-a-minute lifestyle. Our wildly ambitious goal is to help you put together the disparate pieces of a holistic lifestyle, and find a little peace of mind and peace of body. YogaCity NYC, where we're as enthusiastic about your practice as you are!    

Brette Popper Brette is Publisher and Co-Founder of YogaCity NYC. After 25 years as a top manager in the frenetic and agressive world of magazine publishing, Brette wandered into her first New York City yoga class in 2001 and was transformed by its benefits. She soon found herself deeply immersed in yoga asana and philosophy, and decided to put her extensive business knowledge to use in the world of yoga by joining forces with one of her teachers to open a yoga studio in Brooklyn's emerging Dumbo neighborhood. She decided to start YogaCity NYC after realizing that there was a real lack of cohesively distributed information in the busy New York yoga community for practitioners and studios alike. In 2005 she was certified as a 200 Hour RYT and then in 2009 as a 500 Hour RYT thorugh Alison West's Yoga Union. She has also completed 200 hours of therapeutic training with Dr. Ganesh Mohan. You can reach Brette at publisher@yogacitynyc.com and you can read more about her at www.fullfiguredyoga.com. 

Cynthia Kling  Cynthia is the Editor of YogaCity NYC. She began doing yoga about 15 years ago at Allen Finger's studio on 17th street. After about a year, she found herself at one class or another almost every day - loving some things, hating others, and wondering how closely these classes adhered to the ancient Indian traditions. A young teacher who started off his class with a 5 minute dharma talk about an imaginary duck, finally sent her off to Mysore to check out the real deal. She studied in the Ashtanga tradition with Mr. B.N.S Iyengar, one of Sri Krishnamachria's students. India taught her that the whole idea of yoga was huge, ancient, and multi-faceted – but there were no imaginary ducks. Since then, she's dipped into many traditions, taking wisdom from each. Cynthia has been a magazine and book editor, writer and writing coach for nearly three decades. You can reach Cynthia at ckling@panix.com.

Katie Jehenson  Katie handles YogaCity NYC's  marketing, advertising and operations side. She dabbled with yoga while working in the fast-paced online advertising world, but in between jobs, she dove into a regular practice. While employed as a Business Manager , she came to rely on her breath to approach challenges. In 2004, she decided a Yoga Teacher Training program was in her future. Her search led her to Alison West’s Yoga Union and Katie completed her 200-hour certification in 2005. She joined YogaCity NYC because she believes in our vision to bring better information to New Yorkers. You can reach Katie at admin@yogacitynyc.com.

Minna Proctor  Minna is Co-Founder of YogaCity NYC. She and Brette met during teacher training and together they crafted the YogaCity NYC strategy, its unique website offerings and email newsletter.
