Dear Nilaya House friends,

We are three-years old today!

3 YEAR ANNIVERSARYThank you to all our students and teachers who have been part of our journey so far. We look forward to more years to come!

With the new social distancing requirements that came in this month, we are installing an Iyengar Yoga rope wall in the upstairs shala to allow for more space.

We’d love your support for these renovations and invite you to attend two special Iyengar Yoga masterclasses, one by Naseem Kapasi (details below) and Aparajita Ghose (details coming soon).

There’s some great new classes starting this month, including Hatha, Kundalini, Prenatal and a special class focused on Women’s Health.

We’re still running more than 20 classes per week via zoom, so if we don’t see you in the shala, we hope to see you online!

Yours in Yoga,
