Community Call: Help Hosh Yoga Stay in Greenpoint!

Rooftop Yoga by Hosh at the Greenpointers Spring Market

Greenpointers, join us in taking action for our wonderful friends and community pillars at Hosh Yoga. This studio has been a staple of our neighborhood since 2009. And now, the new management company that maintains Hosh Yoga’s space has increased their rent to more than double. Hosh Yoga needs our help to raise funds to move to a new space where they can continue to support our awesome community.

Hosh Yoga has grassroots–literally–the practice space began by offering free yoga classes in McCarren Park. Later in 2009, Hosh Yoga moved into Otom Gym and offered donation based classes and eventually started a studio space of their own on Nassau Avenue. The owners found a new studio space that will allow them to keep serving our awesome Greenpoint and NYC residents. But, they need help raising funds to move and make the transition smooth.

So, why is this important to us? Hosh Yoga is a non-profit studio that makes yoga affordable for everyone – big and small, young and old. We all know that wellness practices like yoga, tai chi, and meditation can make a huge impact on a person’s health, mental clarity, and overall well-being. And when a small biz makes life-changing classes affordable and accessible to all, it has a major positive affect on the community. Not to mention, what we love about Greenpoint is all of our small business owners, artists, creators, makers, DIYers, and more who create, cultivate, and bring the community together.

Plus, Hosh Yoga keeps their costs low so yoga can be enjoyed by all. Like Hosh Yoga, we believe that everyone should have access to yoga that makes a difference. Donate and help Hosh Yoga relocate to a new space today.
