grassroots movement

Hail Shriyogis and all curious yogis!

We have been practicing at a grassroots location for 10 years since leaving our much celebrated original studio at 443 Greenwich Street in the Fall of 2009.

We were the very last tenants of 443 Greenwich Street, which then sat unoccupied for many years before eventually undergoing a renovation into what has become one of the most expensive (and “paparazzi-proof” condominiums in Manhattan).  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. The Grassroots Movement has cultivated a depth of dedication and community amongst those who choose to practice with us in these various and intimate home spaces up the block from the original studio.

After many shifts within our class protocols, we eventually evolved into a term model in the Fall of 2014. It has been widely embraced. Terms are generally 12 weeks and divided into Fall, Winter, and Spring. Commitment to the term is required for participation. If you are interested in these classes, please email us at shriyoga@shriyoganyc.com.

Depending on how you look at it, it is an “old-fashioned” or “new-fashioned” way of coming together as a community to practice: it’s simple. No hard sales, no desk staff hounding you; just yoga with like-minded, like-hearted NYC neighbors. We are here to welcome you.

Our newest offerings are donation-based “drop in” classes at a calm midtown oasis of mindfulness practices known as the Balance Arts Center.  On Mondays, there is a one hour class staring at 6:30pm and directly after, a 7:30pm donation based “drop-in” meditation class. On Tuesdays, there is a one hour class starting at 12:30pm with an option to depart at 1:30pm or remain for an additional 20-25 minutes of meditation, pranayama and/or mantra.  If interested in learning more, please email us at shriyoga@shriyoganyc.com.

New Shriyoga friends, please contact us with further questions. We look forward to connecting.
