There will be a class for beginner levels. More details and info at their site. You can sign up for alerts from Ekhart yoga directly and or follow them on Facebook.

June 21 was declared as the International Day of Yoga by the United Nations General Assembly on December 11, 2014.
No time like the present so why not begin your Yoga journey now! Ekhart Yoga has created a 30 day free beginner challenge to use for yourself and or to share with others. Maybe you’re not a beginner but perhaps you want to try out a new style of yoga. Or mayhaps life became busy and you have not stepped on the mat in a while and have been procrastinating. Allow this to post motivate you back into your practice. Even if its been a while, or perhaps you need something more gentle for a time, no matter the reason don’t let anything hold you back from this. I encourage you to give it a whirl [even if you’re not new to yoga].
Word of Mouth really gets the word out, and while I’m in no way whatsoever affiliated with the site, Esther Ekhart is one of my all time favorite teachers [and she and or her team can be yours too]. I have included some info from the site below to get you going. I hope you enjoy.
If you are new to Yoga, this is the place (and time!) to start your journey.
From the 11th of March, four of the beginner programs below are free for 30 days.

On Wednesday, June 20th, 2012 this large event will be located in Times Square, New York. The event is being sponsored by Athleta and is called the “Mind Over Madness Yoga Event”. It will give you an opportunity to not only salute the sun and celebrate the solstice,but enjoy the energies that comes from practicing yoga in an outdoor setting with a group. The namesake comes from that fact that yogi’s are going to be challenged in the midst of the world’s most frenetic and commercial place. They will have to work hard and put their mind over the madness to transcend in order find tranquility and reach your calm center.
I am in no way affiliated with Athleta, but I know group events can be fun so I wanted to share. I also know that sometimes yoga classes can be pricey on one hand so the occasional free classes [for whatever the reason] are a nice treat. One thing to consider is that most do not realize is that yoga teachers do not always reap a lot of monetary benefits. I’d say who cares about money when you’re doing so much good, and having such a great enjoyable job, but unfortunately to survive in this expensive world we all need a source of income to survive.
If your like me and live a bit far from times square, it’s comforting to know that we are not forgotten on this occasion.
- Free classes in Athleta stores nationwide.
- Live streaming video from the Athleta website.
