Many studios in the city offer ashtanga-style classes, but few are officially approved by ashtanga’s founder, the late Sri Patabhi Jois. AYNY was given the guru’s blessing in 1995, and the studio’s teachers (including Eddie Stern) studied with him in Mysore, India. Classes take place at the Broome Street Temple, a tranquil space in Soho that also offers Hindu rituals and was consecrated by Jois in the days following September 11. Suffice to say, the space and its classes are steeped in tradition.
