Yoga and Meditation Schedule for Summer 2021

Classes start June 1st, 2021!

All classes will be conducted remotely via Zoom until further notice, per NYU's guidance on Coronavirus care.

Zoom links are posted in the dropdown for each day of the week below. You can also join by phone via the listed Zoom number, if you do not have remote interent access.

Meditation

The type of meditation we practice involves simple — but not always easy! — breath and awareness exercises that bring our attention to the present moment. We learn to relax and rejuvenate our bodies, look inward with more insight and wisdom, and cultivate greater compassion for ourselves and others.

Our meditation practice is enriched with teachings from a variety of spiritual traditions, as well as lessons from our own personal lives. We offer Monday through Thursday classes for both beginner and advanced practitioners, as well as sessions that center the lived experiences of students of color and LGBTQ+ students. Comfortable clothing is suggested. There is nothing quite like meditating with a community!

Yoga

MindfulNYU offers FREE yoga classes Monday through Saturday, September through December and February through May. These classes are taught by certified, dynamic, and highly experienced teachers from all over the city. Classes focus not just on physical fitness and health but also on connecting to our center and finding peace through meditation-in-movement.

Classes require a current NYU ID. Mats are first-come, first-served and we close admission 5 minutes after the start time or when capacity is reached. Be sure to get there early to secure a spot! Comfortable clothing required. We do not have changing rooms or showers but single stall bathrooms are available.
