Join senior teaching partners Margi Young and Mimi Kuo-Deemer for an afternoon of vinyasa and restorative yoga. We will move through an alignment based, philosophy rich vinyasa yoga practice with an abundance of hands-on adjustments to wake you up in all new ways. We will then rest in a deeply supported restorative pose followed by a guided savasana. For those newer to yoga as well as seasoned yoga teachers, this class will be sure to deepen your understanding of the practice, both intellectually and physically and give you a break from life as you know it!

Mimi Kuo-Deemer and Margi Young have joined together to do yoga, travel, eat good food and appreciate life for over 14 years. They both teach strong, alignment and breath focused vinyasa flow as well as restorative yoga. For many years, they have co-taught yoga retreats in Umbria, Italy, and Tulum, Mexico, where they have honed the skill of co-teaching with infectious joy. They are thrilled to be sharing their offerings in NYC at The Shala.
