A TALE OF COMMUNITY

“A number of Brahmin priests were called for a feast. But the host put a condition that while the priests could eat as much as they want they should do it without bending their elbows. So the priests, being very smart, fed each other and they had a huge circle in which one person fed the other, the other fed the third, the third fed the fourth and so on and so forth. Because of this action, everything was sustainable. Each person was fed by the actions of the others. A Brahmin did not feed himself. A Brahmin did not feed others to be fed himself. I say this because even if somebody stops feeding him, the Brahmin has got a mind which says whatever happens, I will do whatever I am supposed to do and he keeps on feeding the others. My feeding others has got no connection with my getting fed myself. If I stop feeding the next Brahmin, and nobody else feeds him he may die. And then the next in the chain will die. And the third in the chain will die and so on and so forth. So the ecosystem collapses.”

History of the Mat

JasminaJasmina teaching HandStand

It is widely accepted that B.K.S. Iyengar invented the first yoga props.

When he first started teaching Westerners in the 70’s, he noticed that someone had brought a mat to class that she had cut out from under her carpet to prevent her from slipping. Mr Iyengar thought it was so effective that he ordered a bunch and had his students use them on a regular basis. Hence, the sticky mat was born.

Fun with the Ropes

New students are fascinated with our rope wall. You can get deeper into a pose with the childlike feeling of climbing on a jungle gym.

Talia Sutra is in town.

-2

She's teaching a 3 hour workshop at Namastday Yoga this Sunday from 1-4pm.
Go to our workshop page to SIGN UP.
Born in Israel, Talia, along with her family relocated to New York early in her life. Growing up in a structured, religious, Jewish environment pushed Talia to explore spirituality for herself from a young age. She was first introduced to yoga and meditation at age 6, when her mom integrated these practices into her lifestyle to beat lymphoma.
Talia sees nothing as external to her studies: She has learned impeccable skill and technique from masters of ballet, yoga and art. Equally, she finds sensitivity, intuition and insight are to be found through connection with the seemingly ordinary world of animals and trees and that no teacher is greater than the one within.
