As of December 1, 2017, Yogasana Center is closed.
Yogasana’s building was sold and the new landlord has taken over the whole building to create a fertility clinic. After 14 years in business, it is heartbreaking, and at the same time exciting. I feel freed up to re-envision Yogasana and start anew. My dear friend, Eli McAfee and I have gone in together on a shared teaching space — 100 Smith, on Smith Street between Atlantic Ave. and Pacific Street. We don’t intend for it to be Yogasana, but a shared teaching space for ALL the brilliant Yoga, and movement educators and bodyworkers who are passionate about their work and unable to have a space of their own. Many of Yogasana's teachers will be teaching classes there as well.
We're aiming for opening mid-January 2018.
Will Yogasana continue on? Not exactly. Yogasana will no longer be a stand alone yoga studio. Yogasana will no longer be an entity offering daily classes.
I hope to continue Yogasana’s name and tradition through advanced studies and teacher training courses in the lineage of the Yoga Room in Berkeley, California and Donald Moyer.
I hope that Yogasana as a community will continue on. I referred to us as the Yogasana “sangha”. In Buddhism “sangha” means community. It refers to a group of people who together are practicing in a good and upright manner. That is us. That is Yogasana. We are a unique yoga community where many friendships have blossomed. In any class you went to there was a feeling of support, camaraderie, and encouragement. Yogasana’s sangha is something special. This is what I want to carry on. I hope you all with stick with me as Yogasana re-invents itself at 100 Smith and beyond.
