What started out as a small space in the basement of 454 Broadway has, over the past decade, and through the care of Karen Score, Heather Dacus, and Gopi Kinnicutt, been transformed into the beautiful Yoga center we know it as today. Now owned and operated by Kristen Zorda, Yoga Mandali is a studio rooted in the ancient traditions of love & devotion, which fosters a diverse range of yoga classes, workshops, kirtans, and teacher training programs. With a caring, compassionate community of teachers and students, Yoga Mandali is proud to offer a space for everyBODY to feel safe exploring the practice of yoga, to learn and grow with a sense of belonging, and to reconnect to their divine sense of being.
True yoga is not about the shape of your body but about the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to truly be called yoga, its essence must be embodied.
