    Explore the use of aromatherapy and restorative yoga to align your energy centers. We'll begin with a brief intro to essential oils and chakras. Then we’ll transition into a gentle yoga class that incorporates a different oil every week.

    Aromatherapy is the use of therapeutic grade essential oils to ease the body, soothe the spirit, and enhance mind-body wellness. Essential oils stimulate olfactory receptors and connect with the brain’s limbic system, which is associated with memory, emotion, and state of mind.

    Burn + Transcend

    Mondays, 12:30pm | Thursday 12:30pm

    with Cindy Moss

    Learn More

    There are three essential ingredients in the practice of yoga:
    tapas, discipline, svādhyāya, self-study, and īśvara-praṇidhāna, surrender to the Divine/ Universe . The first- Tapas - to burn - as you move (vinyasa) and then hold postures (asana) stoking the fire within allowing yourself to rid that which does not serve. The second element is svādhyāya, self-study, a form of deep introspection which you will explore as you connect your focus to the breath and allow it to guid you into alignment. The third element
    īśvara-praṇidhāna, a surrender to the Divine/ Universe or offering up of one's efforts to the Supreme Soul - here you will reap the benefits of your practice by ending class with several restorative postures preparing to let go of work.
    About Cindy Moss:
    Bringing relevant real life experiences infused with humor and yoga philosophy Cindy shares tools to help bring your attention to the place in your practice where you can recognize perceived weaknesses as strengths, and surrender what holds you back, through Svadhyaya (self-awareness). Cindy empowers her students to achieve a greater sense of mastery and an understanding of their respective anatomy by sharing the importance of breath work with the hopes that each individual can find the “Sthira and Sukham” focus and ease (stability and comfort) the Sutras define as a requirement in each posture in ones own individual practice.

    Cindy has spent most of her life trying to heal from childhood and adult trauma. Guided through the western psychoanalytic lens she recognizes how the union of both eastern and western philosophies meld together allowing her to approach her sharing of this practice from both platforms. Cindy resides in NYC with her husband, teenage daughter, and dog....Rome, Italy being her second home...

    Cindy has been teaching ISHTA classes for more than 6 years now. Her continuing education consists of restorative and post trauma Yoga trainings. She is presently continuing her studies with Leslie Kaminoff.

    About Lauren Harris
    Mother. Wife. Yogi. Yoga Teacher. Lauren Harris found yoga twelve years ago. She realized that the practice offered so much more than a physical workout, and returned to the mat often to help her through many of life's challenges, as well as to celebrate life's joys. Lauren wanted only to share the practice with others so that they, too, might benefit from its offerings. She left her job as a busy corporate attorney and never looked back. Lauren loves teaching yoga. She works with students of all ages and all levels, from two year olds at Creative Playschool at Fifth Avenue Synagogue to students well into their 70s in group and private classes. She teaches a physically challenging class that is accessible, encouraging all students to deepen their practice in a safe and fun environment. Lauren loves inverting in her own practice and has lead multiple handstand and inversion workshops in New York City. Lauren and her husband Mitch have two girls, Emmy and Megan. When not on the mat Lauren can often be found handstanding with her kids in Central Park.

    Beginner Vinyasa Flow

    Thursday 6:00 pm

    Aliza Stone Howard

    Learn More

    A class designed to introduce foundational postures and alignment, Beginner Vinyasa Flow is perfect for practitioners who are new to yoga or looking to flow at a deliberate pace with an emphasis on detail and explanation. Beginner Flow will encourage you to connect mind and body through active movement linked to breath within a comfortable, unintimidating environment. While this class welcomes total beginners, options will be offered within the sequence to encourage individual expression and development.

    Hoping to calm her anxiety following her husband’s cancer treatments, Aliza took her first yoga class and found exactly what she needed at the time: somewhere to channel her nervous energy through intentional movement and quiet her mind by empowering her body. ​On the mat, Aliza consistently finds a place to release, play, laugh, and connect with herself.

    Determined to share the love of yoga she developed over the last several years, Aliza received her RYT 200 at Pure Yoga. With the guidance of her own incredible teachers constantly shaping her approach to teaching, she is committed to composing safe sequences, emphasizing precise alignment, delivering an energizing and nurturing experience set to fun playlists, and broadening perceptions of possibility by offering physical challenges.

    When she is not on her yoga mat, Aliza can be found in her painting studio, cuddling her lazy English Cocker Spaniel and chasing her rambunctious toddler.
