Whether you’ve spent the last few winter months driving a spin bike up imaginary hills, kicking butt in CrossFit, or mastering holiday cocktail-making (whoops!), getting some yoga chops is a great way to start the year. We’re talking tons of physical, psychological, and spiritual benefits that will help with more than what’s going on on the mat.

And this time of year the New York yoga scene makes it easy for you, with lots of beginner workshops offered through January to help you learn the basics, get back into the practice, or brush up on yogi speak. With the foundations you acquire, you’ll soon be comfortable in every pose. Well, maybe not the one where you put your foot behind your head. —Sarah Sarway
