After being back in New York for a month I am already feeling the stress of the city that never sleeps. As I plan to quickly regain my hold on healthy eating and exercise as I did in Miami, I am in search of the best yoga NYC has to offer.
(yours truly practicing)
I am looking for a yoga instructor, but here's the hard part. When I lived in South beach Miami and was going through some very big emotional changes, I met a man named Jaya Dev. Jaya was not just an instructor. He was a personal mentor with a love for his practice and spirituality.
Practicing Bhakti yoga with Jaya helped me overcome some great challenges, and when you look at him practice its simply beautiful and inspirational.
Sometimes I would meet him at 5:30 am and we'd practice. Walking home afterwards as the sun came alive was a magical experience!!
Another wonderful thing about practicing with Jaya (apart from the live music and chanting) is his food. The man cooks a fabulous vegetarian meal after each class. After we were all done with practice, we would gather together like a family and enjoy this food that was obviously prepared with love.
To reach Jaya in South beach Miami call him at 917 294 4803 and he will let you know where you can find him.
