It's getting tougher for independent owner/operators to survive in the yoga world. That is why I so enjoyed this talk with Ray Greenberg from yogalifetsyle. More and more, being able to talk to a real person and know the person you are doing business with matters. Please enjoy.

For more than five years, J has been buying yoga mats from yogalifestyle.com. He always appreciated that it was independently owned and operated. So he decided to have a talk with the owner, Ray Greenberg. They discuss how he fell into the yoga supply business, nuances in the yoga products market, insider business considerations (i.e. Amazon), and how things have changed in the yoga world. Ray speaks passionately about both yoga and t...

“J. Brown's Yoga is THE best practice I have ever done. The sequencing of the body work is on point!!! The body is properly heated, and every joint is thoroughly worked to increase mobility. The body of this practice will blow your mind, you will breathe deeper than you ever thought you could, you will transition deeper into poses with each breath you take.
This is a breath-centered practice, and very well done. There is no music throughout the practice (i know, i know, i thought that too......no music?), but as i dug deeper into this practice, i fell in love with the fact that the only thing i heard was a deep quiet. There is just a bit of completion music at the very end. I cannot say enough good about J. Brown Yoga, this dvd leaves you feeling calm, relaxed, and believe it or not, ready for more. J will lead you through absolutely every breath, and every posture, gently guiding you, and offers modifications and how to rest between breaths. He delivers in such a manner that you will look forward to each practice. Just do yourself a favor and try it!!!”

This weeks episode of Yoga Talks Podcast is with Lilia Mead, founder of Go Yoga in Brooklyn, recently closed. We talk over the last 20 years before she moved to Los Angeles.

Despite it All, I'm OK. December 8, 2015. Recent events and the turn of season have landed on many like a celestial wet blanket, casting a hue of funk and resignation. Even just a quick glance at any news feed bombards us with what seems to be insurmountable suffering, injustice, and ignorance.

A Studio which offers therapuetic yoga classes. Unlike some yoga classes the teachers emphasize adjusting the pses to your ability. The classes strongly emphasize the coordination of breath with movement which facilitates an energizing and relaxing experience. The teachers are knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming

I have been practicing with J. for years and it has been a wonderful experience and I keep bringing more people with whom I want to share it. It's nurturing environment and strong foundations make it a great place for beginners and life-style yogis.

I just came from my second class at Abhyasa Yoga Center. I cannot tell you how lucky I feel to have such a facility in my neighbourhood; the studio space itself is perfect in it's simplicity, the teachers are knowledgeable, kind and patient. I highly recommend Abhyasa.

I am now in my 25th week, started classes when I was just 9 weeks along. Cannot express enough how these classes helped me! Both physically and mentally. Abhyasa Yoga Center offers prenatal yoga classes 3 times a week, all teachers are amazing. The classes are small and intimate and you have all the personal attention you need. I really do recommend this place, it will be your special treat of the day.

Visiting family and wanting to take a class I wandered by to find an open class starting soon. Very inviting. Wonderful space. Highly recommended and thoughtful teacher. Turned out to be owner. Recommended some studios in my area. Have been back twice on subsequent visits. The place to go in N. Williamsburg.
