If you are looking for true meaning and deep experience in NYC, this is your place.
The name itself embodies our multi-dimensional approach. ISHTA stands for Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra, and Ayurveda, or a combination of physical, energetic, and healing practices. But ISHTA has a double meaning that stretches back to the very roots of yoga. ISHTA is also a Sanskrit word translating to 'that which resonates with the individual spirit,' emphasizing the personal journey they encourage and guide our students to embrace.
The ISHTA mission is to blend the ancient and contemporary yoga teachings of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda into a system that caters to our individual students' needs. Whether you’re looking to stretch and tone your body, explore the healing effects of meditation, get a vigorous workout, or rejuvenate with restorative yoga, ISHTA Yoga NYC offers a unique selection of yoga classes to meet every individual’s needs.
ISHTA Yoga is the home of South African Tantric Yoga Master Alan Finger and his unique system of yoga. Their style encourages contentment and calm through the melding of breath, flow, strength building, alignment and meditation. We particularly recommend Alan’s meditation classes, we had never before reached such a deep state when meditating, thanks to his energy, his directions –a perfect balance between theoretical and experiential – and the energy he creates.
Also, don’t miss Jean Koerner’s classes, whichinclude a combination of breath based movement and longer holding poses as well as pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation. Jean clearly and articulately guides students through the poses while infusing the class with yoga philosophy and concepts.
Yoga has many benefits and at ISHTA, you will not miss out on any of them!
