Don't miss the East Yoga Reopening Party

Local Events - NYC

We love the story of East Yoga because it shows what can happen when a community comes together with a commitment around yoga. East Yoga suffered an electrical fire in the wake of Hurricane Sandy last year, but it was determined to keep its community together, offering classes in hair salons, community centers and local parks. One year later, East Yoga has a new home and plenty of reasons to celebrate. This Saturday, the studio hosts a reopening party with free yoga class, followed by food, drinks, music and fun.

Keep reading for info about an aerial yoga spooktacular for adults and a free spooky storytime yoga kiddos will love. It’s Halloween, yoga style.
