YogaWorks Union Square
Special Needs
Dilshad entered humbly and put on soft music that enveloped the room in soothing sound. With a respectful gesture to the Buddha upon the altar, she reminded us of the importance of daily meditation practice. We began with alternate nostril breathing


KeshavaRadha
Intermediate
Something to think about, or rather, not think about! “Your brain relaxes and the mind follows,” concluded Keshava. This state of relaxation served us well in the ensuing Asanas, each of which we would hold for a rather considerable length of time.


Jivamukti Yoga School
Open
Ximena made her way to me early in class, offering a gentle but firm pressure on my sacrum that released me deeper into Uttanasana, and then following up with a comforting squeeze of my tight upper traps that helped me let go even more of the day’s tensions.


YogaWorks Union Square
Intermediate
On a sunny afternoon, Yoga Sleuth was in the mood for a fun and focused class, so I headed over to YogaWorks in Union Square for Heather Seagraves's YW Flow. From the moment Heather walked into the packed room and said, "I see everyone showed up today


Pranavah Yoga
Open
We started class in a comfortable seated pose where Carolyn led a simple but effective Pranayama practice. In her soothing, clear voice, she asked us to slowly deepen the breath, leaving behind the busy day, the hectic week and finding stillness and


Sun Moon Yoga
Intermediate
The Thursday night (heated!) power vinyasa at sun Moon is pretty unlike regular vinyasa classes and that is mostly because of the instructor Amanda McDonald. Her classes rarely follow a "typical" flow. I've been to many classes with Amanda where the


Dou Yoga
Intermediate
Clinton Hill is a relatively unexplored frontier for Yoga Sleuth, so when tipped off about great classes at Dou Yoga on Green Avenue, I headed right over for a little look and a little see. The teacher, Urban Yoga Foundation member Mali Bowers, and I


Three Jewels
Intermediate
Three Jewels is a small treasure buried on the edge of the East Village. Three stories up from Fourth Avenue two rooms are dedicated to Buddhist meditation and yoga with a small shop filled with books and spiritual paraphernalia.


Staton Street Yoga
Intermediate
I liked that she reminded us to listen to our bodies in our practice, rather than simply following her instruction. I think that this leads to a more motivated home practice and a healthier practice in general. For me, it is the essence of yoga, and


Sacred
Intermediate
Knowing I was going to sweat, I decided to rent a towel for Chichi Egbuna's Deejay Hot 90 class at Sacred in Bed Stuy. "Do you want to rent two?" asked the woman who signed me in. "No, one is fine," I said, trying to keep my eyebrows level, thinking


Yogamaya
Intermediate
Joanne’s temperament is breezy and relaxed, and positive in a genuine way. Her class flows seamlessly, and she always leaves the right amount of time for each portion so nothing gets rushed or left out.


Sacred
Open
Once upon a time, this Yoga Sleuther was a dancer, its lyrical movement no doubt a source of inspiration, if not the motivation behind my current yoga practice.


Yoga Agora
Intermediate
The studio at Yoga Agora in Astoria is on the second story and has floor to ceiling patio windows that overlook busy Broadway with its Greek patisseries, sushi, Thai, Spanish tapas, Mexican and Colombian restaurants. Much like the bustle below, Anna's class


Go Yoga
Intermediate
On a happening strip in North Williamsburg sits the sweet retreat of Go Yoga. Greeted by a natural stone path leading straight to check-in, Yoga Sleuth welcomed the studio's warm call to leave the Polar Vortex.


Integral Yoga Institute
Intermediate
Maybe that’s one reason Integral Yoga has been a fixture in NYC for 47 years. According to their website they offer 125 weekly classes and 6,000 students pass through their doors every month. Sleuth wanted to unlock the secret to their longevity and


The Bhakti Center
Intermediate
The day before I went to the Bhakti Center it was Krishna's birthday (Krishna Janmashtami). In the room next to the yoga studio a group of Bhakti yogis were merrily chanting. Apparently they'd been at it since 6:30 am, our teacher Sammi informed us


Iyengar Yoga Institute
Intermediate
After signing in and greeting several old friends who were Hugh regulars, I ambled into the studio, got my blankets folded properly and prepared to sit. Hugh came in and said, "no blankets." What? No blankets in an Iyengar class?


Yoga 216
Intermediate
Continuing to open our shoulders, we came to the floor and slowly found our way into Gomukhasana. Nicole suggested a block or blanket if we could not comfortably sit in the pose on the floor.


Virayoga
Intermediate
“Soften around your organs,” Elena said. I became aware of a knotted fist inside that seemed resistant to softening. “This exercise is good for when you don’t know how to proceed. It opens more possibilities. It’s about your ability to love and listen.”


Yoga High
Intermediate
"Let's end the Friday social hour and bring it inside," Tina Pugh joked as a super friendly group od twenty plus chatty yoga practitioners settles into their mats for Tina's sultry hip opening Friday night flow.
