New to Yoga?
The Manhattan lifestyle often makes beginning a new endeavor feel daunting, especially when it involves fitness. Getting started in yoga can be particularly intimidating for those who don't fully understand it. If you have been interested in yoga, but haven't tried it because you are apprehensive, then you have come to the right place! House of Jai is the perfect place to begin your yoga journey.
Our teachers welcome beginners, and they will ensure that you get the proper instruction you need to make your introduction to yoga as smooth and relaxing as possible. Yoga has been around for thousands of years because it is one of the most effective ways to keep a healthy body and mind. Although it may currently be considered "trendy," yoga is not a fad, and it will never go out of style! Yoga is the classical Indian science of union.
Through this traditional art form you will learn to connect your mind, body and breathing so that you are equipped to find ease in the midst of your hectic Manhattan lifestyle. Let's be honest; it's fantastic exercise and gives rewarding physical results. Visit or call us at House of Jai to schedule a consultation where we will match you with a perfect schedule to fit your lifestyle.
