About Shamani Yoga
Meditation ~ Movement ~ Breath ~ Self-reflection
Shamani Yoga creates tranquility of 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 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 classes; private and semi-private yoga sessions; online workshops, study circles, and special events; life coaching via phone or Zoom; massage therapy.
