Get Ready to Breathe, Greenpoint! Ever Sunday through September, Greenpoint’s own Hosh Yoga (657 Meeker Avenue) is teaming up with Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park to offer free, donation-based, Bring Your Own Mat Yoga at Bushwick Inlet’s pop-up park at 50 Kent Avenue!
The hour-long sessions will begin at 10am. According to the folks at Bushwick Inlet Park:
Open to all levels and all bodies, this class focuses on the Vinyasa practice of linking breath and movement while flowing from one pose to the next. A great opportunity to get outside this summer, rejuvenate the body, and calm the mind, while taking in some Vitamin D! We will focus on both strength & energy combined with balance & mindfulness. Be prepared for an energetic yet grounding practice that challenges both the mind and body.
Happy birthday, Hosh!!!Hosh Yoga (657 Meeker Ave) has been serving our neighborhood as a non-profit yoga studio for the past nine years, having started out giving free yoga classes in McCarren Park. They later moved to a studio on Nassau Avenue, and then to their new space on Meeker Ave last fall. After tremendous support from the Greenpoint community, which helped them to raise more than $8500, they were able to open the new space. Hosh offers a range of affordable yoga classes and free wellness programs for underserved adults and seniors, and enriching educational programs for kids in NYC schools. In short, they’re doing good work. 🙂
Their latest offering is a donation-based meditation class on Saturdays from 1:30-2pm, starting this Saturday, May 5th. Drop in to meditate on all the positive vibes they’re spreading, and if you can’t make the class, you can still donate to Hosh.
We’ve got crystal water bottles, matcha in everything, collagen beverages, plogging (that’s running while picking up trash, in case you didn’t know), and regeneration classes. Perhaps all these trends are just too much, and it’s a smarter move to go back to the basics. Like beer. And yoga. Now you can practice your smoking camel pose at The Well (272 Meserole St) in Bushwick at their Downward Donut Beer Yoga sessions. The class is $20 but includes a token for a free beer. Today’s class will be held outdoors in the backyard (omg, is it finally Spring…?!). RSVP on Facebook.
Last weekend’s warm spell was a tease, and though it hardly feels like spring has settled in, Earth Day is upon us. We celebrate our blue marble this Sunday, April 22, with plenty to do around the nabe to help tidy, decorate, and love our fragile planet. Check out these (free!) events below. Continue reading →

Holistic wellness and convening with nature is so on trend right now, and so it only makes sense that the next cool thing would be Goat Yoga. Aside from being the cutest farm animals ever with their playful demeanor and crazy rectangle eyes, baby goats have a natural ability to calm and delight everyone around them. NY Goat Yoga, usually based upstate in Gilbertsville, is popping up in Bushwick (at 74 Ingraham St) in April, May and June for both Goat Yoga classes and Goat Yoga Happy Hours. You can view their full schedule on Facebook. Continue reading →
