Pro TipTry mysore ashtanga if you are looking for a new experience where you can challenge yourself on an individual level. Mysore is a traditional study method where a set sequence of postures is practiced with individual instruction from a teacher.
In 2002, Kristin Leigh and Barbara Verrochi founded the shala, which means home or abode in sanskrit, to create a place and community where—in the chaos of New York City life—people could practice yoga, breathe freely, build strength and be at home in their bodies.
Their core offerings include daily ashtanga and vinyasa classes, meditation, and pranayama.
