Yoga Shanti is expanding faster than you can say Om.
Saidman Yee has long operated a landmark Hamptons yoga studio in Sag Harbor called Yoga Shanti. And the new Westhampton studio—outfitted with a gorgeous, gold tin ceiling and bright green walls—is right on the heels of her New York City studio, which just opened its doors in March.
“At end of a [recent] teacher training, one of our students was graduating, and he said ‘there’s this space in Westhampton that would make an incredible studio.’ And I said, ‘let’s make it a Yoga Shanti!’ And the exact same thing happened a year ago with New York,” says Saidman Yee, “We went into high gear, Rodney and I went to visit. We needed to Yoga-Shanti-fy it.” And it’s all been completed in just a few weeks.
There will be celebrations all weekend with an open house today and tomorrow, and a free class that will no doubt fill up in a hot yoga second.
When asked how the dynamic-yoga duo will split their time? “That’s the question. We will teach in Westhampton every once and a while, we’re not committing the same way we do with New York City and Sag Harbor,” Saidman Yee says.
So, I guess we’ll start playing a game of where in the world are Rodney and Colleen. But no matter where they are we doubt they’re slowing down at all. —Molly Gallagher
