Abhyasa Yoga Center was founded in 2007 by NY yoga teacher J. Brown. After more than a decade of teaching yoga throughout the metro area, the stars aligned, a business loan fell out of the sky, and AYC was created to provide a home for yoga practice dedicated to a personal, breath-centered, therapeutic approach that adapts to individual needs, including chronic or acute conditions.
Known for his pragmatic teaching style, J. Brown’s essays have been featured in Yoga Therapy in Practice, Yoga Therapy Today and the International Journal of Yoga Therapy. His monthly posts can be viewed at the AYC Blog. The AYC Yoga Teacher Training is a charter member of the IAYT (International Association of Yoga Therapists) Council of Schools Initiative.
The mission of Abhyasa Yoga Center is to provide instruction, practice, and products that encourage individual and communal health. We believe that yoga is an appropriate vehicle for learning how to ease difficulties, reduce pain, and encourage appreciation in life.
For more information on the specifics of what we are doing, please read the essay “What Kind of Yoga Do You Teach?, see our Practice page or, even better, just stop in for a class sometime. We look forward to meeting you.
