New York Yoga
Intermediate
Mary, with her friendly smile and generous patience, had us begin on our backs, starting with some easy movements and hip looseners. Holding one leg in at a time we circled our knees around to awaken the hip joints and give a nice little massage to o


YogaWorks Union Square
Advanced
If you're after a physically demanding, vinyasa-flow experience that still cultivates awareness of precise and subtle movements, then Tzahi Moskovitz's Sunday afternoon session will make you a happy yogini indeed. Tzahi, who comes out of Alan Finger'


Om Factory Union Square
Beginner
After a challenging stay in Bow and a playful stretch in Puppy pose, our climactic pose was Gomukhasana, paying off on all the shoulder work. To top it off with a truly deep shoulder opener and stretch, we came to a prone position.


House Of Jai
Intermediate
Slowing things down, we brought the moving meditation to a cross-legged seat and folded forward into a version of Yogi Mudra meditation coupled with a Pranayama exercise.


YogaWorks SoHo
Open
Continuing to use the floor as our prop, Magennis instructed us to slowly lower ourselves, all the way to the floor, then push ourselves right back up, a challenge for Chaturanga-regulars, testing our arm strength as well as our determination.


FreelancersMedical
Beginner
He invited us to practice the meditation with our eyes closed. "Focus on the work 'in' as the breath comes in," Marcus said, "and the word 'out' as the breath comes out. Distractions are good because they are reminders to come back to the breath."


SLT Yoga
Intermediate
In half Hanumanasana, Amanda gave me a wonderful adjustment. I was feeling particularly tight and she asked if I had anything going on in my hamstrings before helping me move further in the pose. I really appreciated how aware she was of my practice


Yoga Union
Advanced
Like any good investigator, West starts with deceptively simple clues. They are the poses that set her plot. Bridge variations to sensitize and stabilize the lower back muscles and simple leg extensions to begin alerting the abdomen to the task...


YogaWorks SoHo
Special Needs
Upon entering the studio one Saturday evening, Kirtan and his assistant Jessica greeted students with cotton swabs dashed with eucalyptus oil to keep at our mats to sniff throughout the class if we so desired, calling to olfactory nerves to help set a soothing tone. I had barely even flipped out my mat or acquired the necessary props


The Shala
Intermediate
He encouraged us to listen to our bodies, use props when necessary and move at our own speed. I tend to take vinyasas slowly in order to really breathe and find my alignment. Brian said "good for you, moving slow" encouraging us...


Yoga Union Center For Backcare And Scoliosis
Special Needs
Sleuth stands in front of teacher Deborah Wolk. I bend at the rib cage so this practiced yogic cartographer can run her gentle hand over the hills and valleys, twists and turns of my back. She's quietly describing the curves of my spine so I'll be pr


Iyengar Yoga Institute Of New York
Special Needs
Yes, Women's Yoga within the Iyengar system is a bit of an elusive category. Its abiding concerns, and often the first thing that comes to mind when you hear about it, is menstruation and menopause. Unglamorous indeed. But, this approach is not exclusively about blood cycles (although you'd be amazed at what a difference a little attention to cycles can make in your overall energy levels),


Jivamukti
Open
Dechen said, "Each pose is for every part of the body. Remember to breathe into all parts of your body, even those you don't think are an important part of the pose, like your toes."


The Shala
Open
Yoga Sleuth, who got up very early to get there on time, quickly realized that if you are new to Ashtanga it is advisable to get there after 7 since that is when the teacher arrives.


Yogi Beans
Special Needs
Lauren had given us all a colorful bean bag. We came down on to our backs and placed the bean bags on our bellies. She explained that as we began to breathe deeper, the bags would move more.
