Memorial Day Monday
We will be keeping Sunday hours on Monday, May 25th, from 8am-11am. The doors will open at 7am for those who wish/need to come earlier, but the opening prayer will be said at 8am.
Fridays in May, 6-6:30am
This class is open to current and past members and students at AYNY, but not suitable for brand new students. We will cover simple kriyas, bandhas and basic pranayamas during the month of May.
Yoga Theory Class
Sundays: May 31st, June 7th and 14th
Because of a string of holidays (moon day on May 3rd, Mother’s Day on May 10th, and Memorial Day on May 25th) we will have just one yoga theory class in May.
Namarupa – New Issue Available
Digital and hard copy issues of Issue #20 are available here. Articles include an examination of the Yoga Taravali (the text where “vande gurunam” first appeared) by Jason Birch; an interview with Dr. Robert Svoboda; a short biographical sketch of the iconoclastic Swami Agehananda Saraswati – one of the first Westerners to become a Sannyasi; Dreaming in Early Vedanta by Ashtanga Yoga and UVA student Naomi Worth; and several other great articles. Photos by Robert Moses are sprinkled throughout, as well as a photo essay from the Jagannath Cart Festival in Puri.
Wednesday evening will be our only evening class (7:30-8:30) as we move into the spring and summer.
Brooklyn in the House
Rumor has it, we are moving to Brooklyn… well, the rumor happens to be true. We’ll be opening a small school in Clinton Hill, to be called the Brooklyn Yoga Club: ground floor yoga and meditation rooms, 1st floor library, coffee/tea/juice and light food service, communal tables and a 1,000 sq ft outdoor deck. Our new address is 206 Vanderbilt Ave., and we should be open in late summer/early fall. Manhattanites, have no fear, we’ll still keep our school in the city even after Broome St. closes on September 30th. However, the Yoga Club is just one stop into Brooklyn on the B, Q and R trains (well, 2 stops on the R). And then a short walk. The walk will be worth it for the steam room we’re putting in.
