grassroots movement

Hail Shriyogis and all curious yogis!

We are now practicing at TWO grassroots locations, 481 Greenwich Street and 487 Greenwich Street.

We refer to these two incredible lofts as: Shriyoga Annex (buzzer #1, 481 Greenwich Street) and Shriyoga Sanctuary (buzzer #1, 487 Greenwich Street).  Classes on our SCHEDULE page will clearly indicate which loft is the location.

For those curious about Shriyoga’s location history, our much celebrated “original studio”, 443 Greenwich Street remains an unoccupied building, under construction, 6.5 years after we departed as the final tenants in the Fall of 2009. A number of spirited Shriyogis did not want us to move from the neighborhood so they opened their home lofts for the continuation of Shriyoga in what became our “Grassroots Movement” era. And, 6.5 years later, we have found the Grassroots Movement has cultivated a depth of dedication and community amongst those who choose to practice with us in these various and intimate spaces.

After many shifts with our class protocol, we eventually evolved into a “term model” in the Fall of 2014 which has been widely embraced. Terms are generally 12 weeks like a typical “school term” and divided into Fall, Winter, and Spring. Commitment to the term is required for participation. If you are interested in our classes, please email us at

Depending on how you look at it, it is an old-fashioned or NEW-fashioned way of coming together as a community to practice: SIMPLICITY… no hard sales, no desk staff hounding you during warrior 2… just yoga with like-minded and hearted NYC neighbors. We are here to welcome you, and you will see many familiar faces for those of you returning to us. Again, we are at 481 GREENWICH ST., buzzer #1 for the SHRIYOGA ANNEX, and 487 GREENWICH ST., buzzer #1 for SHRIYOGA SANCTUARY.

New Shriyoga friends, please do not hesitate to email us with further questions. Namaste.
