Welcome to Nyack Yoga

Nyack YogaAt 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.

In its present incarnation, yin yoga is combination of Hatha yoga, Chinese Daoist practices and western science of the body. While not actively strenuous, yin is not Gentle Yoga. Yin is used to get deep into our connective tissue and fascia, through the use of long, passive holds propped to achieve correct alignment. In the stressing of our deepest connective tissue, yin yoga mobilizes our joints, ligaments and deep fascial networks.  Learn More.. Sunday, October 11 4:00 – 6:00 pm
