Tour Description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Manhattan with a relaxing hatha yoga workshop. Hatha yoga - the basis of all yoga systems - attempts to balance mind and body via physical postures or “asanas,” purification practices, controlled breathing, relaxation, and meditation. With the help of your instructor, calm your mind, strengthen your body, and achieve a meaningful experience. Rejuvenate with wellness activities like mindful meditation and body drumming. Listen to meditative music and relax in a peaceful atmosphere. Revenue from this experience will be invested in outreach programs that instill the benefits of mindfulness, yoga practice, and holistic healing in the diverse communities of NYC, helping young students manage stress and maintain health consciousness.
