Park Slope

Déjà vu

Welcome back to Park Slope’s oldest yoga studio. The Solar Yoga Ashram first opened its doors in 1977, and after a nearly 40-year absence, has reopened at the same location.

“The mission of Solar Yoga is and has always been to bring yoga, meditation, and vegetarian nutrition to the people of Park Slope and Brooklyn,” said Mindy, one of the original co-founders with her husband Arbey, who together led the effort to re-open Solar. “It’s really wonderful to reopen. I am excited to meet new and old friends and neighbors.”

Yoga classes are donation based. Each class is comprised of a warm-up, a relaxation, and practice in hatha yoga postures. All are welcome. In addition to yoga, meditation as well as Capoeira lessons are offered. Workshops, lectures, and discussions will be scheduled throughout the year and open to all.

Standing O says, “It’s good to have you back.”
