This month at the studio

Therapeutic Acrobatic Partner Yoga Sunday October 26th, 4-6pm

Sunday October 26th, 4-6pm

With Kripalu 500hr Yoga Teacher:
Stephen Masullo

Come and play with the subtle forms of communication, trust, surrender, and the power of connection. The workshop starts by warming the body through a dynamic flow connecting partners through breath and movement. From there move into groups of three to take flight in therapeutic inverted partner postures.

Therapeutic flying involves one person (the base) supporting a partner (the flyer) on their feet while guiding them through therapeutic stretches in a Thai Yoga inspired fashion. It combines the healing power of massage through touch with the powerful practice of surrender and trust. In a fun and supported space, experience how the use of gravity lengthens the spine and releases muscle tension. These therapeutic postures are a fun way to help connect with and assist a partner in the release of daily tension.

All welcome, both long time practitioners and first time students. Receive detailed instructions and demonstrations to explore space and gravity in new dimensions.

Verbal awareness Sunday, October 5th 4-6pm

Talking yourself and others into existence


Sunday October 5th, 4-6pm

The latest discovery of the Russian scientist proves, what yogis always new, that human voice has a direct influence on the human body. What scientists call junk DNA, about 90% of all human DNA, responds to vibration of human voice and it is just waiting for directions of what to become (tumor, cancer or catalizator of healing and reconstruction).
*Learn about your verbal habits and how to change them
*Learn how to save life with the right words in an emergency situation.

Hosted by Professional Hypnotherapy Practice

Handouts with all information and science sources will be provided.

People’s Climate March


This Sunday something important is happening.  Tens of thousands of people – mothers, daughters, anarchists, ministers, scientists, stockbrokers, artists, grandparents, immigrants, refugees, children, activists, and labor unions; your teachers and your students and your friends and your family – are marching together.  We are marching for many reasons.  We are marching out of fear, out of determination, out of love and hope.  We are marching with the knowledge that the health and balance of our world is at the tipping point, that our global ecosystem is on the verge of collapse, and that we and our leaders are not just letting it happen, we’re making it happen.

And we are responsible for the solution.

We here at Daya Yoga would like to encourage those of you in our community in Bushwick and Ridgewood and anywhere in New York to join us at the People’s Climate March on September 21st.  We encourage you to add your voice and your body and the love and the strength that you cultivate every day in your yoga practice and in your life to the collective voice.  Together we will call for meaningful, intentional change.

In the Ramayana, Rama’s brother Laksmana is wounded, and in true epic fashion his only hope of survival is a rare herb found only in the heights of the Himalayas. It falls on Hanuman’s shoulders to retrieve the herb and save Laksmana’s life.

But Hanuman is a monkey god, not a botanist, and he has no idea how to identify this herb.  He’s from the jungles of the South, after all, and the plants of the Himalayas are unfamiliar to him.  He fumbles, he doubts.  Then he decides that he’ll just bring Laksmana the whole mountain.

When Hanuman realizes the scope of his power, his commitment, and his strength, he discovers he can literally move a mountain. And in doing so, he saves Laksmana’s life.

A contingent of yogis will be marching at the parade.  They will meet at 9 am between 82nd and 83rd Stpeoples-climate-marchreets on Central Park West to chant, meditate, and practice asana in preparation for the event.  Daya Yoga Bushwick invites you to join them.

Together we can move mountains.
