Update on Monday, March 16th, 2020:
During this emergency, please check our web site and your emails for late breaking news and information about our programs and sanghas. Also, do check your spam filter periodically for messages from NYI that might not have made it into your email inbox.
Update on Friday, March 13th, 2020:
Due to the rising concern about the COVID-19 pandemic, NYI is transitioning into online programming. Effective Monday, March 16th, at 5 pm and continuing for at least a month, NYI will no longer hold in-person public programs, sanghas and community meetings.
This weekend, we will offer online options in support of our remaining in-person programs depending on teacher facility. Participants have been notified as appropriate. We will update our community and the respective program
registrants for our upcoming programs as necessary via web site and emails. As we approach April 15th, 2020 we will reassess when it will be appropriate to offer in-person programs again.
The major reason for our decision is of course the health and safety of our teachers and community of yogis. However, we are also committed to supporting the efforts of our federal, state and local government leaders to contain the covid-19 pandemic. Therefore, we want to decrease the need and incentive for our community to travel throughout the NY Metro area using public transit as well as decrease unnecessary opportunities for potential exposure outside and within our Center.
Please check our events calendar for
information on specific programs and sangha meetings. When possible our programs and sits and sanghas are moving to online access. We will post updates here and on the event calendar as they come in.
