Breathe In, Breathe Out

At Surya Chandra Yoga International, we are driven to share the traditional teachings of yoga in our beautiful city of New York as well as in decentralized and decolonized settings where we explore and grow together on interwoven paths of Self-realization. Our team consists of experienced teachers who are inspired to share the knowledge of yoga through classes and training that are geared towards exploration and expansion on both individual and societal levels.
