The Hudson Valley Yoga Studios and Teachers
These are some yoga studios that I know about in the Hudson Valley of New York. Some I like better than others, but with yoga, what seems right to me may not be right for you!
Every yogi needs to find their own unique teacher. Some people need a teacher with a Rolls Royce or two in the driveway. Others need a person who has spent a lot of time alone in a cave. Some want love, others discipline, and so on.
I’ve decided to offer this list of studios because although you can get much from books, DVDs, and the internet, there is no substitute for the teacher-student relationship when it comes to personal guidance. A good teacher will see things about you that you are blind to, and will tailor the practice to your needs. And since most classes are held in groups, you will find important support and comradery when you take classes.
The road to flexibility and high mindedness is not always easy. It helps to have some friends along the way.
