Welcome to Nyack Yoga
At Nyack Yoga we believe that the physical, spiritual and mental benefits of Yoga are indispensable tools for navigating the stresses of a modern 21st century life. That through the practice of Yoga, breathing techniques, meditation and mindfulness one can achieve balance, ease and openness in both body and mind. We believe these benefits of Yoga are available to all people regardless of prior experience or physical abilities, and that each persons yoga practice is their own personal path to health and wellness. To facilitate this, we offer classes and workshops of all levels and types of yoga, in an atmosphere of inclusion and acceptance, free from judgement, with space and support for every level and type of practitioner. Our diverse and welcoming community attests to this. Nyack Yoga’s spacious and inviting studio is located in the heart of Nyack with free parking onsite and handicap accessibility.

Moving Meditation with Hula Hooping with Brittny Marie
Hula Hooping: Kids Toy or Phenomenon? Find Your Moving Meditation through Prop Manipulation: This workshop will cover the basics of hula hooping and will provide attendees with the knowledge and tools to master beginner and intermediate tricks and transitions.
Hula Hooping is a fun and creative way to promote physical and mental well being. Hula hooping is not only a great core work out, it will also make you feel happy, literally! When we move, endorphins are released in the brain, which helps to relieve stress and can result in feelings of euphoria. There is no right or wrong way to hula hoop. Movement meditation is designed to create a safe space for stress relief through freedom of expression for people of all ages, genders, shapes, and sizes. We welcome those as young as 13 to attend if they wish.
FOR ALL OF YOU YOGIS OUT THERE! THIS IS FOR YOU TOO! Using hula hoops as a part of your yoga practice can help to promote better physical and mental health! You can use this prop to reinforce and help yourself transition, further easing into different positions.

Nyack Yoga Wellness Programs
At Nyack Yoga, we understand that there’s more to having a balanced and happy life than just getting on your mat. Sometimes it can be really difficult to find and maintain balance in all of the areas of our lives. Our team of healing practitioners and coaches can assist you with a combination of services that you can customize to best support your needs. We offer three types of plans:
- 1 Month Intensive
4 sessions in 4 weeks to help put you back on track, evaluate your immediate goals and let you go out and maintain them on your own. Targeted goals determined at intake.
- 3 Month Immersion
It can take at least 3 weeks to set a new habit and even longer to firmly put it into place. With the help of a team of support, you’re empowered to take your health, wellness and practice to the next level.
- 6 Month Transformation
Allow yourself the time to really set your goals and allow for support as you navigate making adjustments to your habits and make space for healing. With the support of a wellness team, you’re able to have your ups and downs, learning to make changes, firmly cementing them into your daily life, with the option to adjust the focus as you need it and get support from different coaches or just one along the way.
All programs include yoga classes. Please contact us to learn more and find out what’s right for you.
