A yoga party to support more yoga in New York


yoga for nyThis Saturday, the New York yoga community will come together to celebrate its huge no-tax-on-yoga victory—and to ensure that in the future, yoga studios will continue to have a collective voice, beyond Om, across the city. And you’re invited.

Yoga for New York, led by Alison West, had originally planned a benefit class and party to raise money for the effort against charging sales tax on yoga classes.

Now, yogis get to revel in their win while getting their asana on with a lineup of the city’s seriously beloved teachers: West will be joined by Kula’s Nikki Vilella, ISHTA’s Alan Finger, The Shala’s Barbara Verrochi, and more, at Yoga Vida’s Noho studio.

Following the 6:30 p.m. class, there will be a yoga-inspired after party with trendy Turmeric tonics and healthy snacks. It’ll be a chance to “socialize off the mat with food, drinks, and an online auction,” say the organizers, and an opportunity for the non-profit to “raise awareness of the organization and other issues facing the yoga industry.”

And no, the burden of toting your mat on the subway is not what they’re talking about.

Yoga for New York Celebration, Saturday, September 29, at Yoga Vida, 666 Broadway, at Bond St., 3rd floor, NoHo, $40 for the class; $20 for the party. RSVP required at YogaforNewYork.org
