As of December 31, 2016, Prana Power Yoga closed its doors for good at both the Brooklyn location and its long time New York space in Union Square. Prana was a vital piece to the hot vinyasa yogi community in the Big Apple for many years. With its departure from the scene, many long time practitioners have been left with an empty space in their hearts and scrambling to find a new home to get their asana fix.
Spearheaded by accupunturist and yoga instructor Deborah Stotzky, and long time client of Prana Barri Budin, the Prana community of teachers will be hosting classes at Athleta on 5th avenue and 18th street.
The chain retailer, which offers amazing sportswear and accessories, has a lower level studio at their 5th avenue location that will be the home for displaced Prana teachers, clients and all yogis looking to hone their practice with some of the best teachers NYC has to offer.
There will be a schedule of classes throughout the week at the heated space which offers dressing areas, free props, mats, changing rooms, lockers, bathroom, free filtered water (B.Y.O.Bottle) & music set up.
The suggested donation is $15 at the door, cash only. Spread the word, bring a friend or two and lets foster a safe and fun home for exploration and practice. Whether you practiced with us at Prana, or not... if you are looking for a new home for your asana practice or just looking to get start the New Year learning more about Yoga, the team put together for these classes would be a perfect gateway for you to get started or advance your practice.
If you want to learn more about the space, you can check out Athleta's web site here.
On Facebook, Prana at Athleta has set-up a page to keep a tab on scheduling, teaching times and other news as we transition into Athleta and eventually, into another space when that's available. Click here and place like, subscribe and follow us on Facebook.
I'll be teaching classes there weekly and bi-weekly over the next few months. You can keep track of that on my Schedule page here as I update daily where I will be and at what times.
As of today, here are my current dates at that space:
Peace & Love,
What's going on Yogis? Hope all is well with all of you... just checking to say what's, and to keep you informed about some Holiday scheduling that could be coming up. Keep checking my 'Schedule' page to keep up to date with that.
Dina Ivas & Vicyasa will tandem for another Yoga House Party -- OH YEAH, more glow sticks, asana action, fun flow and post class libations! It will be version 3.0... we did the House music thang, we traveled back to the 1980s, & now we are going to hit-up Boy Bands & Pop Stars. Registration as always at The Yoga Room's website, on their workshop section. Reserve your spot before it goes BYE, BYE, BYE!
If you are a friend... and want to drop in to any of my classes at Earth Yoga, Makara Studio, Prana or Yumcha, let me know. We can arrange to get you into the class as my guest. It will be my pleasure.
Peace out Ohmies!
I want to send a big shout-out to all the Yogis that have supported me and are inspirational in my life. I'm a perpetual student and when I'm around my crews at The Yoga Room, Yumcha Yoga, Makara Studio, Earth Yoga and Prana Power, the vibes and unique elements that you bring to the practice are what drive, influence and energize me.
The 6:45 am morning warriors, the homies that have tracked me down at other studios and everyone who make their beautiful faces present at my classes… Gracias!
I have a lot fun things coming up…
Free Yoga at Gantry Park, 1980s themed House Party, Halloween Retreat at Heathen Hill in October…
