Expiration dates are calculated based on the first day your series is used.
Class series cannot be frozen. No exceptions. Please review the expiration dates on each series available. There are NO refunds on class series, workshops, privates, or retreats.

You are able to sign up online in advance for all classes.
We love when you sign up for classes in advance (especially for busy evening and weekend slots!).
Effective February 1, please remember that if you are not at the studio 5 minutes before class begins, we reserve the right to offer your spot to a walk-in student. If we give your spot to a walk-in student, your card will not be charged for that class.
If you can't make it to class, please cancel your online reservation at least 30 minutes before class starts - that way you don't get charged and we can give your spot to someone else.
If you have signed up online for a class, and you do not show up, that class will be deducted from your class card. If you know you are unable to make it to class, and are unable to cancel your online registration, please let us know ASAP. We understand there are certain extenuating circumstances and are happy to work with you to resolve issues that may arise.

This is the class for you if:
- This class is for you if:
- You have never done yoga before
- As a kid, you thought organized sports were overrated
- You have a stressful job/life and you've heard that this "yoga stuff" is good for that
- You know you have a body, but you're not entirely sure how to use it
- You've heard about meditation, but are skeptical/are sure it will never work for you
(This class is not appropriate for children.)
This is the class for you if:
- You've been taking Basics classes pretty regularly for about 6 months
- When Angela makes you hold plank for 8 breaths, it doesn't make you as sad as it once did
- You're still scared of going upside down, but you're willing to try
- You're noticeably stronger/more flexible/more patient than you were before you started taking Basics
- When you fall out of Tree Pose, you don't beat yourself up (as much)
This is the class for you if:
- You've never done yoga before
- You were always told you were "good at other things" during gym class
- You'd like to know a few of the major poses before entering a public class
- You learn better in smaller environments where you're not intimidated to ask questions
- You learn better on curriculum
- You can take a few key instructions and apply them to a variety of contexts
This is the class for you if:
- You have regular yoga practice.
- You'd like to explore a class a bit more physically challenging than basics but not quite intermediate/advanced.
- You're looking to build physical strength & mental focus.
- You're confident working at your own level in the practice with other students in the room who may be more advanced than you. You will work with the guidance of the teacher and ask questions/seek counsel when need be.
This is the class for you if:
- You've been attending the basics classes consistently three to four times a week and you've built up a degree of strength.
- You know what is means when the teacher says "take the vinyasa."
- You'd like to explore more difficult poses such as arm balances and inversions.
- You're interested in integrating your breathwork with your postures.
- You know what your physical limits are and how to work safely within them, both on your own & with the guidance of a teacher.
A luxury to some; a necessity to others. This hour and forty-five minute class allows the practitioner more time to explore the more physically complex poses of yoga-asana, in addition to the more mental and subtle practices of meditation and pranayama.
A well-paced vinyasa class that focuses on linking movement to breath. Thoughtful sequencing allows you to move mindfully through the poses, gaining deeper access to the physical body and focusing the mind through steady, meditative movement.
As much as the body needs to move, it also needs to rest. Flow & Restore connects you to your breath, allowing you to create a meditation practice through movement, while working out the kinks in your body. Afterwards you can settle into a serene place through postures designed to restore your nervous system.
Be prepared to move for the majority of the practice. Not suitable for beginners - a 6 month minimum of regular practice is recommended.
This is the class for you if:
- You've recently had a baby and you've been cleared by your healthcare professional to return to physical activity. Please don't come before that time, as yoga is a physical activity.
- You practiced yoga before or during your pregnancy and are looking to return to the yoga mat.
- You haven't practiced yoga before but want a physical activity that can help you build strength and flexibility of body & mind as you enter parenthood.
- You want to meet like-minded moms and practice yoga in a community-based setting.
(And everyone's baby cries during class. It's really okay!)
Yoga for Runners is a class designed for runners by a lifelong runner who happens to be a yoga teacher. We strengthen muscles that runners need for stability and support, we stretch what gets tight, and learn manual release work to give our muscles and joints some relief.
We use yoga poses and breathing techniques and combine them with a more modern approach to running and anatomy to create a strong and holistic foundation which cultivates ease in the body and mind through running.
While the class is geared for runners, athletes from all sports are welcome.
An all-levels class to rebalance the body that spends its week sitting in a chair, hunched over a computer. This class builds the strength of the legs, back, and shoulders, as well as opens the chest and side body. All this without every doing a Downward Facing Dog, or putting weight on the wrists! Space is limited for this class.
A workshop all about the block and the strap.
Ever wonder why we use the block and strap in yoga class? Come explore the why and the how in this fun all-levels class that is Steph's mash note to blocks and straps! We'll do every pose (standing poses, seated poses, upside down - you get the idea) with either a block or a strap and sometimes both. Straps and blocks provide our bodies and our minds with a ton of information and support - these props can illuminate the actions in a pose, be the gateway to depth in our practice via our poses, and, perhaps most important of all, provide support and confidence. We'll also learn what to do when props aren't available to us, or we want to transition away from their use. Whether you love or hate blocks and straps, there's something for everyone in this workshop.
Are you ready to take your practice to the next level? And by next level, we mean All Levels. Join Steph as she introduces the fundamentals of an all levels class, including more challenging standing balances, backbends, and inversions. You'll learn the pose names, how to safely transition in and out of poses, and how to build the strength needed for more rigorous weight-bearing work.
Requirements: 1+ year in All Levels classes, or with instructor approval.
For students who are working with binding, inverting in the middle of the room, and toward the "full" variations of poses. Students who are comfortable and knowledgeable in modifying these are welcome.
Students will be led through an intelligently sequenced advanced asana practice. Modifications and breakdowns will not be included. As we flow with the breath through a delicious extended 2 hour vinyasa class, we will work toward an "advanced peak pose". Students will cultivate endurance and challenge their boundaries as they sink into the rhythm of a strict vinyasa practice.
Expect chanting, music, dharma, fun vinyasa, a long savasana, and closing meditation - all the components you love in one of Jen's classes.
Is your low back permanently cranky? Do you avoid backbends because they hurt? Are you recovering from a back injury? Join Lisa for a workshop designed to help you use yoga asana to relieve low back pain.
In this workshop, we will strengthen, lengthen, and release muscles that contribute to low back pain. We'll start with a discussion and review of the main culprits in back pain, focusing on the hip flexors and all 4 layers of the abdominal muscles.
You will emerge from the 2 hour workshop with practical tips, tricks, and tools to use in your own practice to both release tension and prevent future injury. The workshop is suitable for all levels, as well as those with and without acute low back pain.
How can we work hard in our yoga practice without struggling? Let go without tuning out? And can we bring this skill of balanced action into our daily lives?
Join longtime Mala Yoga teacher, Lindsay Sullivan, for her final workshop before she embarks on her journey to graduate school on the west coast! We will learn to seamlessly thread breath-work and meditation with the physical asana practice to balance the nervous system and facilitate strength, growth and healing in the body, mind and of course, the heart.
This workshop is appropriate for all levels of students. You will go home with specific and personal techniques, which are designed to deepen your practice and to balance out both the anxious and fatigued states that we oscillate between as city dwellers.
After we explore meditation, pranayama, sweaty July vinyasa and a long juicy svasana, you're welcome to stick around for some music, cookies, chatting and perhaps a few tears as Lindsay says "goodbye for now" to her favorite yoga studio in all of Brooklyn.*
Bring your friends...it's going to be a sweet & sweaty one!
*she plans to come back and teach what she's learning on the west coast whenever she can!
If you've developed the strength for chaturanga but still have some pesky questions about whether you're "doing it right," then this workshop is for you!
We'll take that strength and build into it the key elements for a successful chaturanga. We'll follow that up with a forty-five minute vinyasa flow to warm up all important aspects of the body for arm balances and inversions. Then we'll thread our chaturanga work into several bird poses: bakasana (crow), hummingbird pose, mayurasana (peacock), pincha mayurasana (peacock feather), and viparita salabhasana.
Recommended for students who want to tweak their chaturanga, challenge their arm balances, and integrate it all into a fun two hour play time.
Requirements: No wrist or shoulder injuries. A regular chaturanga practice. All inversions may be done at the wall or in the middle of the room.

Retreats are powerful opportunities to shift your practice and create space for breakthroughs. Without day-to-day burdens, you have the opportunity to really focus on your practice, your habits, and all your rising thoughts (the nice ones, the not-so-nice ones...).
Escape the city and join Steph and Christina for 7 days of yoga, sun, and relaxation in the idyllic Riviera Nayarit, Mexico. We'll spend the mornings and early evenings practicing in an open-air yoga pavilion with 360-degree views. Afternoons are your own to swim, take surfing lessons, visit the neighboring towns, enjoy an on-site spa treatment, or simply relax in a hammock.

From the very beginning of the program, you'll gain practical experience in the seat of the teacher by teaching asana, anatomy, and philosophy. You'll also participate classroom observation, small group teaching sessions, engage in a constant dialogue to develop your teaching voice, and assisting classes.
