Awesome Asana Yoga @ Morris-Jumel Mansion
Yoga Sessions begin Thursday, June 1 at 6 pm
This year in partnership with the New York Restoration Project, Chelsea and her new teachers, Lucy and Jacob will offer classes twice a week at the Morris-Jumel Mansion. The season kicks off with this Thursday with Free Flow and Let Go at 6 pm and our Sunday sessions, Slow Down and Realign at 12 pm. Both classes are an hour long and open to any skill level.
Registered Yoga Teacher and all-around excellent person Chelsea Best, has put together an awesome team to bring more yoga to MJM for the season. As Chelsea says, “Awesome Asana offers a unique yogic journey, linking breath with movement in a meditative Vinyasa Flow class style designed to awaken the spirit and bring the body and mind back to a place of peace.” The class is Open Level Vinyasa, and it's pretty rigorous – “moderately challenging,” as Chelsea describes it – though, as a novice participant, I can assure you, it’s really very manageable, as relaxing as it is invigorating. Moreover, as Chelsea is apt to stress, practice is personal: you’re very much invited to go at your own pace.
MJM’s Awesome Asana is part and parcel of Chelsea’s “Localize Yoga” project, which aims to make yoga affordable and accessible – to present it “as a possibility, rather than as a luxury” – to the denizens of upper Manhattan.
Sunday's class is $7 cash or $10 credit/debit. Thursdays are free. Mats, should you need one, are provided.
