Second Location Opening in

Midtown Kingston

Saturday, May 13th

Celebrating with FREE classes all day at both locations!

 

Free Class Schedule          New Teachers          New Classes

 

You may have noticed that some of our evening classes have been bursting at the seams. Literally. Classes have been overflowing. And while it’s exciting that so many people are interested in yoga and our offerings, we, Leigha & Jacqui, couldn’t help but feel like the time was right to move into a bigger location that could better serve our community. The idea of moving was bittersweet. We were sad that we would have to move out of the birthplace of The Yoga House in 2011 but we knew it was best if we could offer classes in a space with more freedom to move. Luckily, we’ve found the perfect location in Midtown Kingston at 474 Broadway, right in between Monkey Joe’s and Stone Soup, that is allowing us to expand the presence of yoga into Midtown without giving up our quaint original home in Uptown Kingston on Crown Street. We’re working hard to make it feel like your other yoga home in Kingston. And, yes, we will also have a small parking lot at the new studio, along with a municipal lot right next door.

So beginning Saturday, May 13th, The Yoga House will have a presence in two districts in Kingston. With both studios open, we’ll be able to run simultaneous classes. Most of the classes that we already offer will move to the new, larger location on Broadway, and the Uptown studio on Crown Street will run more specialized classes such as Prenatal Yoga, Yoga en Español, and Restorative Yoga. And for the ease of our community, your class cards and memberships will be valid at both locations! We will now be offering 29 weekly classes, plus 4 monthly classes, between the two studios. You can see the complete schedule, which begins Sunday, May 14th, here.

On that Saturday, May 13th, we will be celebrating this new chapter of The Yoga House with a day of FREE yoga at both studios. The classes will be about 40 minutes long; short enough to potentially try out a few classes during the day. The schedule of free classes is listed below.

We know that there are a lot of questions so hopefully this page will help answer most of them. If you do have additional inquiries, please feel free to reach out via email to us. We’d love to hear from you.

We do want to introduce you to the new teachers at the studio. Below are the bios of the teachers who are joining our family, and if you’d like to read about our current teachers, visit our teachers page. And don’t forget to keep scrolling to read about our new classes.

It is in this quiet space that Nydia found she could truly listen to her mind and body. As a yoga instructor, Nydia creates a safe space that allow others to reconnect with themselves and to find a way to feel at home.  With her enthusiastic personality and a tremendous sense of wonder, Nydia is passionate about empowering others to overcome their fears and any obstacles that might prevent them from leading the life they desire.

En este momento de quietud Nydia pudo escuchar lo que su cuerpo y mente necesitaban. Como instructora de yoga, Nydia trabaja para crear un espacio seguro que le permita a otros conectarse con ellos mismos y encontrar una manera de sentirse en casa.

Christina Byron-Steen

Christina is inspired by yoga to live each moment more mindfully while keeping her body healthy and strong. Her introduction to yoga was a prenatal class she took when she was pregnant with her daughter 18 years ago. Christina has since fallen in love with yoga and she wants to share it with anyone interested in giving it a try. She is committed to making her class engaging and nurturing for all, and more challenging for those up for the task. She finds yoga to be a very personal, non-competitive practice. Instead of looking for a perfect pose, she hopes you leave the mat feeling more nourished and balanced within.

slackline series yoga kingston new york hudson valleyThe SLACKLINE SERIES is a unique practice that redefines your sense of balance and mental focus on a one inch wide piece of webbing! Great for climbers, yogis, surfers, runners and athletes of all forms, the YogaSlackers bring their unique practice of slackasana to climbing gyms and yoga studios around the world. This practice helps students to develop new techniques of complete body awareness and strength while improving concentration, so much so that some have labeled it “meditation for those who can’t sit still”. In this 2 hour workshop, students will learn the basics of the series including poses such as kneeling, sitting, standing, lying down, arm balancing and even going upside down on the slackline. Often times the practice is combined with AcroYoga and Thai Massage to offer a full exploration into balance and holistic well-being.

 

Meet at Academy Green, on the corner of Clinton Ave. & Albany Ave.

If it’s raining, meet at The Yoga House on Crown Street, where we’ll do AcroYoga guided by Adi.

AcroYoga Weekly Meet-Up — Sundays, 6:30-7:30pm

We’re happy to announce that we are now hosting a weekly Acro-Yoga meetup!

Every Sunday from 6:30-7:30 P.M.

By donation. All levels welcome. No experience necessary.

All proceeds will go toward funding the meet-up itself.

What is AcroYoga?

Displaying IMG_3951.JPGIt’s partner yoga that uses elements of yoga, acrobatics, and Thai Yoga Massage. It’s delightfully adventurous and healing all at once. It’s performed in groups of three: a base, a flyer, and a spotter. We’ll alternate roles so that everyone gets a chance in every role.

What’s the format?

This is an informal meet-up. A teacher will be present to oversee the group. We’ll choose between three and five poses from the AcroYoga Manual to practice each week. We can lead and assist you if you need guidance or you can be self-guided. Come by yourself, or bring a friend. You can work with your partner exclusively, or we can mix it up.
