Heart and Soul of Yoga in Astoria

At Heart and Soul of Yoga, we focus on a truly semi-private yoga experience.  Ideal for those who want a more personalized yoga practice – those new to yoga or wanting to address injuries are particularly suited to our approach, but also those seeking a deeply mindful practice away from the busy-ness of the everyday world.  Our intimate setting serves to aid your journey inward and our experienced and dedicated teachers help you explore your needs with an approach that is wide ranging, non-dogmatic, all-inclusive and completely compatible with your current beliefs.

Union of body and spirit can come in so many ways, so our classes incorporate asana (physical postures), pranayama (awareness and work with the breath), yogic philosophy (the theory behind our physical and energetic existence and how we end our suffering) and meditation (stilling of the mind and resultant experience of relaxation and peace).

ISHTA, (where many of our teachers were trained) directly translated from Sanskrit means ‘individualized’, so we favor the use of props to facilitate the poses for all shapes, sizes and flexibilities. We offer modifications for those with injuries, help our prenatal students gracefully transition through pregnancy and beyond, and with classes no larger than 5 students and frequently less, we can do all this with an eye on what is right for you. Yoga helps us all to honor who we are physically, emotionally and spiritually, aligning us to our true nature, allowing us to evolve, heal and grow.

For a complete list of the types of class we offer look under the classes tab at the top of this page. Check out our schedule for regularly scheduled classes and the events page for special classes and workshops.  Go ahead and sign up for a class or call or e-mail to discuss an individual approach.

We look forward to working with you. Namaste.
