Today I’ll do Primary Series because it’s NY Primary Election Day! It’s also the Sri Ganesha Chaturthi Festival! Come join the festivities at #brooklynyogaclub before class tonight!
Beginner’s Led 6:30pm
rockin’ my #brooklynyogaclub t.shirt after crashing the waves in Portugal 🤙 Practice this morning back at the ranch had to be indoors as the wooden terrace is too bouncy yesterday 😂 , and too much direct heat . Practice is wonderful outdoors if it’s shady, on a solid surface, and not too much of a breeze... #brooklynganesh#ashtangayoga#practicepracticepractice
We are very excited to welcome Gregory Knopp to the Omride team! Gregory will now be leading the Yoga portion of our Tuesday rides. Here’s what Gregory has to say about Yoga: “Starting a consistent yoga practice without a movement background and while not leading the most sustainable lifestyle, I often wondered if "yoga was for me." I was not flexible and had a number of previous injuries that certain stock postures aggravated. Despite these concerns, I found that yoga can lead to real transformative changes. And these changes need time to take root.
I teach with strong emphasis on awareness: breath body and mind. Turning the attention inward helps one focus and stay present. My other focus is anatomy. Correct alignment and anatomically informed decisions-making might not be the quickest path to mastering every advanced pose, but they may take you down the path of lasting change.
After the initial 200 RYS certification, I've deepened my yoga education with an 108 hour Anatomy for Yoga Teachers course and Yoga International’s Pranayama Unlocked course. Being an Accessible Yoga Ambassador, I aim to keep my classes open to everyone, regardless of experience level or physical abilities.” We are so excited to work with him. @gregory_knopp #yoga#yogaandhorses#yogaeverydamday#brooklynyogaclub#outdooryoga#omride
“Everyone may think they have the best yoga instructor,
but how many can really claim that their teacher has architected the most beautiful practice space in the city — one which includes an active Ganesha temple and a large- scale watercolour by legendary artist Francesco Clemente. I start my mornings at Brooklyn Yoga Club, a cosmically transformed townhouse on a sleepy block in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Under the guidance of Eddie Stern, who studied in Mysore with Shri K. Pattabhi Jois for more than 25 years, students move through set sequences of increasing difficulty at their own pace. Eddie and his wife Jocelyne Stern have built a community that gathers for coffee and conversation on the school’s main floor, where Clemente’s First of the Three is the centrepiece. If yoga’s not your thing, it’s still worth a trip for some of the fine items in the school’s shop, including my friend Lorenza Pintar’s sublime BUTTERelixir oils.”
👉🏼♥️Beth Citron is the curator of Modern Contemporary Art at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York and one of my all around favorite humans. I am 100% positive she would have never feature #butterelixir unless she was authentic about it.

뉴욕에서 4번째(_마지막) 아쉬탕가 마이솔 수련 ॐ -
역시 '유종의 미' 라던가...😋 오늘은 뉴욕에서 첫 수련 만큼은 아니더라도 지난 두번의 헤롱헤롱 수련에 대한 아쉬움을 커버할 수 있는 수련이었다🤩
웃디타하스타파당구스타사나 에서 발등 자체도 이제 내 힘으로 턱 위치까지 올리고 드리시티도🙄👣 바닥에서 발등으로 옮겼다는 것에 스스로 만족해 하구 있는 찰나, #eddiestern 선생님의 핸즈온으로 발이 콧볼까지 올라온 것 같았다🙄 wow!!!
정말정말 간만에 아르다밧다파드모따나사나 왼다리에서 흔들리지 않고 무릎이 '덜' 아팠다. 최근 다시 생긴 무릎 통증에 한숨이 나왔는데 이렇게 덜만 아파도 기쁨ㅠㅠ
드!디!어! 혼자서 컴업을 해냈다!!!!!! 이럴려고 타지에서 아팠나보다!! 뭐 절대 당근 완벽한 컴업은 아니지만 내 몸에 선생님의 손이 닿지 않은 채로 우르드바에서 (올라와서 비틀거리긴 했지만) 직립를 해냈다! 신기해서 두번이나 했다!! 잘했쒀 유지은!!!!👏👏👏👏👏 좀 만 더 견고해지자!!🤣
어제 내다버린 반다 주서왔는지 점프백도 스루도 무난무난- 시르사아사나 도 요추 아프지 않게 마무리😌
마이솔 끝내고 후다닥 씻고 카페 테이블에서 선생님 기다리다가 기념 사진 찍고...존경한다...말씀 전하며 안녕🖐 쎄굳빠🖐 -

There’s a joyful comfort in a familiar face; feeling lighter after led today with Carolyn. Thanks for the smiles + chats. See you next time, @cwald7! | #ashtangayoga#ashtangamethod#brooklynyogaclub |
PS - that’s not a spot on your screen; it’s chocolate ice cream on my shirt.
What a joy it was to be with Candice this morning. Happy we were able to cross paths and catch up a bit. Thankful for a community of folks that transcends geography. | @candicedotdotdot #brooklynyogaclub
A quick taste of the (almost) empty shala with the last few students finishing their morning practice @ #brooklynyogaclub where I have the honour to practice everyday for almost 3 1/2 weeks; learning so much!
Thanks a lot @eddiestern #iamgrateful 🙏🏼
PS: and of course there is a shala cat, too! See pic6 😻
So excited to get back into the Mysore room tomorrow @fivepillarsyoga ! We’re open this week M-W, 6-9am.
Also there’s another 4-week intro to yoga course at #brooklynyogaclub starting 7/16!
Debuting in the cafe this week: The vegan Brooklyn Yoga “Club Sandwich” created by chef @tatah.kim and inspired and named by @johnbaloney - it’s delicious, I had the first one today! Tempeh, carmelized and smoked carrots, avocado, vegan mayo, lettuce on toast. Yum. #brooklynyogaclub#vegan#veganclubsandwich
✨AYNY New Shala (Brooklyn Yoga Club) and Old Shala (Broome St. Temple) in Mysore. (🇧🇷+🗽+🇮🇳). ✨💛 @eddiestern 💛 . .
