Since Abhaya Yoga studio opened in Dumbo in April 2010, they have had a big following from Dumbo residents and people who work in and around Dumbo. Abhaya is also an educational center where yoga teachers in training come to study from all over the country. The only dedicated yoga studio in Dumbo offers 34 classes of various levels throughout the week but also has a yoga practice combined with live music (the only one of its kind that we know of).
Every Friday evening from 6:30 – 8pm, Abhaya Yoga offers a full flowing practice with live music to kick off your weekend mood with DJ’s, drummers, Kirtan singers, and more. Every Sunday morning from 8 – 9:30am, students can experience the bright early sunshine combined with the sweet sounds of live music.
About the founder Tara Glazier (from abhayayoga.com):
Tara Glazier, a long-time professional classical ballet dancer, pursued a modern dance carrier in New York City after receiving her BFA in Dance Pedagogy at the University of Hartford/ Hartt School. During her time in NYC, she fell in love with yoga, studied to become a certified Anusara as well as Vinyasa teacher and made it her life’s passion. It has been a great gift for Tara to create a community at Abhaya Yoga where friends can come together to share the conversation of yoga in a beautiful, supportive environment.
