About Shamani Yoga

Meditation ~ Movement ~ Breath ~ Self-reflection

Shamani Yoga creates tranquility of the body and mind through fluid asana classes that weave meditation, breath, and self-awareness into every moment and movement. Master teachers Betsy Ceva and Charlene Bradin believe in a well-rounded physical practice that also incorporates the wisdom of traditional yoga philosophy. Betsy and Charlene founded Shamani Yoga following the loss of Birchwood Center, their well-known yoga and massage studio in Nyack NY, to the Covid19 pandemic. Shamani Yoga was their response to listening to nature and asking themselves, “what do we need now?” Shamani (meaning to create a tranquil mind) was a return to their roots, uniting their strengths and talents to share the essence of yoga and self-care from their home. It distills 22 years of building a multifaceted yoga and massage center into this smaller, more intimate practice that fosters peace and transformation. Through movement, meditation, breath, and self-reflection, Shamani Yoga enables a deeper understanding of one’s true Self. We offer a weekly schedule of group yoga classes, private and semi-private yoga sessions, online yoga workshops, study circles, and special events, life coaching via phone or Zoom, and massage therapy.

During these challenging times, nothing has nourished my body, mind and spirit more than getting on my yoga mat and practicing with Charlene and Betsy. Their classes are very creative and perfectly balanced, and I always feel the passion and energy they bring to each one.

Betsy and Charlene are incomparable. Their gentle guidance, fun, yet calming demeanor and balanced, skillful approach was exactly what I needed. And the flexibility to practice when and where I am able is the best!
