Harlem Yoga Studio’s impassioned instructors spread their yogic teachings during studio sessions and community partnerships for all skill levels and body types. The studio’s schedule includes welcoming, family-friendly classes accessible to newbies and seasoned yogis.

For a more challenging practice, skilled yogis drop into Vinyasa Flow sessions, where students explore smoothly cascading transitions and gale-strength exhalations, incorporating dynamic, strengthening poses into the style’s assorted bends and twists. Tasked with engaging the body’s muscle groups from core to extremities, Pilates Mat routines invigorate minds and bodies alike with precisely controlled exercises that sculpt long, slender muscles; belly dancing sessions work to loosen up hips and firm abdominals until students can deftly unbutton shirts without using their fingers.
