The Nest

A Yoga Shala in the traditional sense of the word - a gathering place to practice, share, experience and grow. Tucked away in the back of a quiet building in Brooklyn, The Nest provides soul-seekers a place of refuge removed from the demands and influences of the external world. See the transformation of the Nest below - from our first renovation in July 2018 to our recent expansion in April 2019.

The Yoga Room
From a multi-purpose room, to the first iteration of The Nest, to the current version. The new bamboo floor looked great in the first iteration, but the swings in temperature between the seasons took their toll on the natural wood. We repurposed the wood on the wall in the new Swan Lodge (see below) - and I think it looks pretty damn cool. The new yoga room extends back further than the picture and can fit twice as many students as the previous space.

The Swan Lodge
From vintage clothing storage room, to the Swan Lounge, to the Swan Lodge. We expanded into the storefront in April 2019 and now have an awesome hangout spot for students and two great rooms to host small and larger community events. The “NOW” stage for acoustic concerts, artist showcases, and interview series will be up and running by the end of May.

The NOW Stage
Yoga and meditation teach us that the key to inner peace is living in the now. We’re excited to launch our “Be Here NOW’ series of acoustic performances, speaker series, and other community events on the NOW stage beginning in late May. See here for the upcoming schedule of events.
