Come learn a yoga practice to strengthen your body, enliven your nervous system, and explore your subtle inner world. These classes teach yoga based on the therapeutic breathing-and-movement system of the Ashtanga Yoga tradition as a foundation for meditation practices inspired by the Indo-Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Folding posture, breath, awareness, and compassionate intention into the path, these classes align the traditional Ashtanga “sadhana” (a means of achieving your goal) with the inner contemplative disciplines of pranayama and meditation, reconnecting the practice to its roots at the foot of Mt. Kailash in Tibet (according to the Ashtanga lore).

Classes are taught “Mysore” style, meaning that practice is individualized according to a student’s abilities and needs. Along with instruction in the core breathing-movement method of the Ashtanga sequences, classes include an introduction to meditation and guided meditation practice.

In the led class, students practice in unison; Mysore practice classes provide individualized instruction.  All levels are welcome in either class.
Both types of session include meditation and yoga instruction based on the breathing-movement system of Ashtanga Yoga.

 

Please Note:

Newcomers to Ashtanga Yoga are encouraged to attend the sessions in person. Led practices are offered online or in person. The in person sessions are highly recommended for beginners due to the emphasis on one t0 one guidance provided by the teachers.

Featuring

Jamie Bonelli

VISIT WEBSITE

Jamie was born and raised in Hell’s Kitchen, NYC and has been practicing yoga in the city for over 20 years.
Jamie views the physical asana practice of yoga as a place to expand the limitations of the human mind. Both in finding joy in breaking perceived physical boundaries and also by being loving, gentle and accepting of oneself when coming up against challenge.
Jamie has practiced the entire old ashtanga yoga asana syllabus and up through the 4th series in the more current structure.
In the past few years she has become increasingly interested and practiced mantra meditation and chanting from the Vedic tradition. Jamie has guided Yoga Nidra meditation for over 10 years.
She graduated with honors from Fordham University studying both media and comparative religion.
She still lingers with the question that led her college studies of how war can be fought over religious reasons and how can it be prevented. Jamie still resides in NYC with her two vivacious daughters.
