Tuesdays in August: SoundOff Yoga with Abhaya!
Escape the noise of the city while you practice yoga in it’s heart, under the majestic granite anchorage of the Manhattan Bridge. Sound Off headphones eliminate all external noise allowing you to be seamlessly guided through a yoga movement sequence and a uniquely curated soundscape. The emphasis is on both the music and the movement, and on using both as vehicles into a deeper experience.
Participation with headphones is optional; you do not need them in order to enjoy this yoga class. Please note that headphones comes with a fee, and that advance RSVP for headphones is required.
Yoga will be held Tuesday evenings in August from 7 – 8pm in the Archway under the Manhattan Bridge. (Check-in will begin at 6:30pm.) Rain or Shine. BYO-mat!
8/4, Keely Angel: Keely has been a dedicated student of the yoga practice since her inaugural downdog in 2006. Keely completed her 200 hour Anusara Training under the guidance of Tara Glazier and Kenny Graham. Her classes are intended to support her students as they grow their practice, offering fun, alignment-based sequences to open the body, free the mind, and tap into our inherently big hearts.
8/11, Sophia Holly:Sophia began practicing yoga over a decade ago primarily to treat and prevent injuries from long distance running. Thus began her passion for the practice. It became a way to celebrate life, and aid in her recovery from an eating disorder. Sophia believes in the transformative power of yoga both on and off the mat. She recently completed a 200 hour Teacher Training at Abhaya Yoga in Brooklyn under the Guidance of Tara Glazier and other wonderful teachers. Sophia’s classes are a blend of easeful vinyasa, longer held poses, and alignment principles. Everyone’s body is different, so she aims to help students feel comfortable and safe in each pose. When not on the mat, Sophia can be found cooking, working as a nanny, singing, biking or finding laughs in everyday life.
8/18, Kathryn Robinson:Kathryn’s journey into yoga began in 2004 in San Francisco, California, when her passion for the practice was ignited by her first teacher, Catherine Chapman. Within a month of balancing, falling, and getting back up she began to feel transformation on a physical and energetic level and has felt a calling to share the benefits of yoga ever since. Driven by the belief that through a regular yoga practice we all have the capacity to heal, her teaching is imbued with a tone of compassion and urgency. Kathryn’s approach weaves philosophical teachings, metaphor, breath work, and alignment principles into a flow that gently challenges her students to grow into their fullest potential. Kathryn completed her E-RYT 200 Vinyasa certification in 2011. She continues her advanced studies under the tutelage of Tara Glazier and Zhenja La Rosa at Abhaya Yoga. When not in downward dog, she’s climbing, making exhibits, movies, and art! “However you choose to pass your minutes, hours, days–make your life your art!”
8/25, Joy Radish: Joy Nirenstein Radish has been teaching and studying yoga since 2003.
