Morning Yoga at 88th Street

Morning yoga everyday with arts and athletics

Starting this month Arts and Athletics will be offering open level vinyasa yoga classes for adults at our new storefront location at the corner of 88th Street and Columbus Avenue. Class takes places from 7am until 8am on Thursdays but will expand to each weekday as word gets out. Start your day off with an energizing and harmonizing yoga session, taught by experienced yoga instructor Laura Vandemark.

Ms. Vandemark’s Yoga for Grown ups

Vinyasa means linking breath and movement. Experience a deep sense of connection as you harmonize mind and body energies with breath awareness. Sequences are varied, however vinyasa is generally a more dynamic and athletic approach to yoga.

Yoga, including vinyasa, teaches your body how to mitigate the stress response by using breath and mental focus. Vinyasa is particularly effective at reducing stress and anxiety because you, as a practitioner, are encouraged to focus on breath and bodily sensations.

This class is open to adults. Classes for parents and babies are also being scheduled. Yoga mats will be provided.
