Many people think that Yoga is just a physical exercise. But Yoga is much more than that: it's a method of developing
your body, mind and spirit. "Yoga means inner oneness": It's when your words, your voice, actions, feelings, thoughts and soul match... it's when you feel totally at peace with yourself... beyond self-doubt and fear... radiating strength, joy and love from within. We all want to feel like that and we can. Ananda Marga meditation and yoga courses give you the chance to experience that. In our center in Corona, Queens we offer on-going classes on yoga and meditation for beginners and advanced practitioners under the guidance of Yougic monks.

I teach a style of yoga which is compassionate and rich with
insight as I incorporate asana (postures) to stretch, strenghten, tone, balance and detoxify to body; pranayama (breath/energy control) to learn how to harness and utilize energy; meditation to control the random fluctuations of the mind promoting focus and healthy thought habits; and kriya to cleanse the body and mind of impurities.
Yoga is for everyone, no body is too old, weak or inflexible to benefit from the life transforming practice of yoga. Each class is tailored to the needs of the group or individual according to their level of fitness and interests.
My mission is to bring the mind, body and spirit of students back into alignment with nature and their higher, divine selves.
