The Yoga Collective is a group of teachers who are setting out to change the world by teaching a creative arts class, be it yoga, pilates, dance or other forms of exercise as well as workshops, meditations and health and wellness classes. They come to the Yoga Collective so they can teach in a relaxing atmosphere and exercise their creativity.
Jen Whinnen, Director and Founder of Three Sisters Yoga School created the space with her business partner in 2011. Jen teaches yoga all over the country and helps yogis become yoga teachers. She created the space to give teachers in NYC a studio so they can begin their classes without needing to be hired by a studio. Jen handed the studio over to some of her students.
Nicole D'Angelo registered for Three Sisters Teacher Training in the summer of 2014, took over the studio in 2015 with fellow yogis, and is now the sole owner.
The Yoga Collective NYC is currently in Chelsea, Manhattan at 135 W 29th St Rm 603 10001.
The studio is fully stocked so someone brand new to yoga can enjoy the mats and all yoga props free of charge. Filtered water is provided and they ask for a small donation. The Yoga Collective NYC is free of plastic in the studio so people fill up their water bottles. Plant-based snacks are provided for some of the bigger classes and workshops and kale chips, energy bars and refreshing drinks. For summer classes, there is an air conditioner as well as a ceiling fan and various lighting.
Keep an eye out, as TYC bags recently sold out; however, they are looking to expand their assortment later this year.
There are many kinds of classes at TYC.
The teachers teach everything from power to restorative yoga, martial arts and fitness classes and yoga nidra meditations. Some of our yoga classes are on-going and others are one or two time classes. Many of the classes can help you get in shape while also helping you to calm down and find inner peace.
