Equanimity Yoga provides one-hour open level vinyasa yoga classes with all learning styles in mind. As an elementary school educator during the day, I understand the needs for modifications and accommodations in instruction. I always offer leveled options for each pose.
This class keeps the yoga practice simple, with clear directions for asana practice and mindfulness meditation. My certifications are in Vinyasa Yoga (2011) and Anatomy (2014), balanced with Vipassana meditation retreats.
The entire yoga studio space is padded with the same type of mat used by martial artists. Those with sensitive knees will enjoy the benefits of practicing on a padded floor. Since the entire mat is already padded, you can choose to use your own mat, rent a mat, or just use the floor space provided.

We share the space with a martial arts studio but you are in the correct studio! Monday night class starts at about 7:35pm to allow for transition time. We are located between Native Cafe and Ruff Club/New York Sports Club.F Train to 2nd Avenue JMZ to Essex/Delancey Street 6 to Bleecker Street
Please wear comfortable exercise clothes. Mats and Water are available to rent for $1 each. We have 2 surprisingly large bathrooms which double as changing rooms.
First timers will need to sign a one-time waiver before starting class. Please let Tara know about any injuries or concerns you have prior to class so that poses can be adjusted safely.
My yoga journey started at age 15 and has been a healing thread that continues to support me throughout the chapters of my life.
I believe that the quality of health in the mind and body are inextricably linked. We can use yoga postures and mindfulness practice to heal the physical body whilst also making us more like human beings, rather than human doings. I know that yoga has enhanced the quality of my primary relationships, allowing me to create boundaries and also be present for all of the moods that come and go. I teach what I practice and believe cultivating any type of caring attention to your mind and body will contribute to living a more authentic and loving life.
Stoked I’m improving, getting a bit of sweat on, shaking from the strength & balancing work. All while Tara’s making me laugh between mindful meditation. Yes please!
My first class pass workout and my first yoga class in 10 years...and I am so so pleased!!!! Tara was the best first instructor I could have hoped for. The studio was a quiet, clean, comfortable, welcoming, and relaxing. Tara was kind and patient and never pushed anyone in class more than they were comfortable. Great for beginners but she also offered suggestions for taking the poses to the next level. Can’t wait to come back!
Strength work, breath work, alignment awareness, and a touch of meditation. Perfect way to end a Monday.
