In this Mes Demoiselles dress Lara Land beautifully channels Ali McGraw in her heyday.  As the young owner of Land Yoga, which she opened after returning from a year traveling in India and teaching yoga to genocide survivors in Rwanda, and a pioneer in the West Harlem business revival, I think she stands behind the classic line in Erich Seigal’s Love Story - Love means never having to say you’re sorry.

Things to do with kids in Harlem: Children’s yoga starts March 8 at Land Yoga

I ran into Lara from Land Yoga in Harlem yesterday and I told her I can’t wait for my daughter to try children’s yoga when she gets bigger. That’s a ways off. So for now I pass on this information to all Harlem parents to take advantage. A new season of children’s yoga classes starts next month at Land Yoga in Harlem. Classes for 2-3 year olds begin March 8th and classes begin March 11 for kids 4-7 years old. For more information and to register, click here.

A bit of Harlem is featured in the recent edition of Yoga Journal. A photo of Land Yoga instructor and local Harlem Gal Dana Elyse Tarasavage is in Yoga Journal for their July/August edition. Yoga Journal asks readers for their On Location segment to send in their favorite pose photos from travels around the world. A photo of Tarasavage was sent in of her in Mysore, India striking a difficult yoga pose right there on the street among Indians and their favorite and sacred animal, the cow.

If you haven’t met or taken one of Tarasavage’s classes at Land Yoga in Harlem, you’re missing out. I have personally taken her class many times and enjoy it very much! Dana Elyse Tarasavage is at Harlem’s Land Yoga Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and Saturday morning. Land Yoga is located on Frederick Douglass Blvd between 114th and 115th Street.

30 For 30 Movement headed to Harlem’s Land Yoga

522772_324719437594833_542732266_n

I learned yesterday at yoga that the 30 For 30 Movement is heading to Harlem’s Land Yoga tomorrow, May 20. You may ask, why should I care and who is 30 For 30? Apparently, 30 For 30 is a sisterhood in NYC that supports and inspires woman to commit to at least 30 minutes of exercise or movement for 30 consecutive days. 30 For 30 has chosen to expose their fellow “sistas” to a night of  beginners yoga at Land Yoga in Harlem so that they have another option to consider to help them keep on moving.

If you’re interested in checking out 30 For 30, they will be taking a class at Land Yoga in Harlem tomorrow  (May 20) at 7:45 pm. Better yet, if you’ve ever wanted to try a beginners yoga class at Land Yoga with plenty of other fellow beginners, tomorrow’s class would be perfect!

Hope to see you there!

Land Yoga, Asali Yoga, Beloved Yogi Harlem, and Friends of Morningside Park have come together for a fundraiser to educate and end human trafficking-and we are invited to participate as well. On March 9th at 2 pm, these Harlem yoga centers will be doing 108 Sun Salutations in Morningside Park near 120th Street. This one-day event unites yoga practitioners in the City-and around the world-to support human trafficking.

Last year 3,000 individuals from Mysore, India, to London, New York, and Tokyo came together for the one day to raise awareness and funds to Odanadi to support their work rescuing and rehabilitating victims of trafficking, exploitation and abuse, and educating and empowering vulnerable communities. Odanadi has rescued and rehabilitated more than 2,000 children, carried out in 60 brothel raids and brought 137 traffickers to justice.

The goal for this year is to have more than 100 participants at Morningside Park. To participate in this event, which costs $30, go here to register or pick up a sponsorship form at Land Yoga at 2116 Frederick Douglass Ave to raise money through family, friends, and colleagues who plan on participating.
