New to KYE

Welcome to Kundalini Yoga East, the first and longest running Kundalini Yoga studio in New York City. You will find us in Manhattan just above Union Square, at 873 Broadway (between 18th and 19th Streets). Enter 020 at the front door of the building and take the elevator up to the 6th Floor. We are in suite 614.

When to Arrive

Do your best to arrive 15 minutes before class begins, allowing yourself ample time to sign in and ask questions, store your belongings and change clothes, use the restroom, meet other students, and get oriented.

What to Wear

Please wear modest, comfortable, light-colored clothing, preferably of cotton or other natural, breathable fiber. This type of apparel can enhance your experience by expanding your aura and personal awareness, and also makes it easier for teachers to see how you’re breathing and moving during class. It’s best to remove your socks before practice.

White clothing, while traditional in our practice, is not required to participate. Many students choose to wear white and many wear other colors. A headcovering is worn by many practitioners. It is not a requirement to cover you head in order to participate in the class. The dress at the studio is pretty modest and simple.

When to Eat

In order to experience the maximum benefits, it’s best to eat about two hours before you practice yoga and meditation, as it is easier to breathe and move on an empty stomach. If you must eat prior to class, a piece of fruit is recommended.
