Hatha yoga is the most widely practiced form of yoga in America. It is the branch of yoga which concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. Hatha yoga uses bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. There are nearly 200 hatha yoga postures, with hundreds of variations, which work to make the spine supple and to promote circulation in all the organs, glands, and tissues. Hatha yoga postures also stretch and align the body, promoting balance and flexibility.
The space you’ll be practicing in is named Eka.
In the language of yoga (sanskrit) Eka means “one.” Located in the Genesee Center at One Hundred Genesee Street in Suite One Hundred One. Eka is a place for yoga and creativity in one spot. The space features a private office for changing, is fully accessible including the rest room and stocked with yoga equipment for your use (you may of course bring your own) along with drinking water and the fixings for tea in the kitchen area.

What to wear.
For your comfort wear clothing that somewhat forms to the body and moves with you. You may wish to wear layers as your body temperature will likely change during practice. Warming during the more active phases and cooling during the restful phases.
You contribute to the experience.
Please refrain from wearing perfume or other strong scents to class. Turn-off cell phones or make them completely silent (this includes no vibration). Remove shoes in the vestibule before entering the practice area. If you use a studio mat, please use the wipes provided to clean it before returning it to the rack. Blankets should be folded neatly when returned to the rack. Be on time to class. If you intend to miss a class please email (email@example.com) or TEXT: 3157306355
You are responsible to make your teacher aware of any medical conditions or physical concerns you may have in general and on the day of your class. Your teacher will offer guidance and accommodations based on this knowledge. It is your responsibility to keep yourself safe and injury free. Use your own wisdom and knowledge of your body to make adjustments during your practice. This is YOUR practice and is intended to benefit you and address your particular needs. You always have a choice. You decide what’s right for you.
Due to the limited space I may not be able to offer make-ups for classes you choose to miss. Refunds will not be offered. Occasionally there are spaces available for “make-ups” in another class, if there is space a make-up class is no additional charge. The single class “Drop-in” rate is $20.00. If I choose to cancel a class due to family emergency, issues with the practice space or my own illness you will be compensated for the missed class with a voucher or credit equal to the per class based on your particular investment.
Single drop-in classes:
Multi week sessions:
There is a savings on the individual class fee when purchased as a session (no refunds, or rebates for missed classes, make-ups may be available with session, no carry over and no prorating for late starts in the session). Session fee is commensurate with number of weeks, length of each class and subject matter.
