The famous yoga teacher from the Hamptons, Colleen Saidman Yee and her yoga studio in the Flatiron District, in Manhattan. She created the Yoga Shanti technique.
Yoga Shanti is a modern yoga technique based on the traditional Iyengar and Ashtanga yoga.
The renowned yoga teacher, Colleen Saidman Yee, partnered up with other experts in the field to create a new modality. It is proper for the modern, western bodies and minds.
Furthermore, the school offers several different classes for all types of practitioners in every different stage: from beginners to advanced.
Some of their classes are:
- Urban Zen classes includes a restorative yoga sequences, aromatherapy with essential oils, reiki, breath awareness and meditation.
- Impossible Asana class breaks down the most complex asana’s in Yoga and teach you step by step how to accomplish the most challenging poses.
- Shanti Sweat classes are for the ones that love the burn. It’s a combination of Shanti Flow and restorative poses. It’s what they call the Rock’n’roll yoga.
As an old, wise yogi saying goes: “Meditate 1/2 hour a day. If you are too busy, meditate for 1 hour.”
Therefore, yoga classes and other practices are always welcome, but do experiment the Yoga Shanti technique.
Oh! For the Yoga-Lovers, take a look at the book Colleen published this year – “Yoga for Life: A Journey to Inner Peace and Freedom“.
In short, it’s a meditation focused on world service, since you are constantly blessing the Earth through a non denominational prayer. Truly transforming.
