– A Perfect Union –
Dear Yogis and Yoginis,
For nearly 24 years, The Yoga & Polarity Center sought to bring the community the best of what Yoga offers the world. YPC has been relentlessly in the service of community, and has brought Yoga to thousands of children, adults, and more recently, physically challenged adults. Opening our doors in 1995 with only 10 classes a week taught by Heather Principe, throughout their history which includes trainings ranging from 200 – 500 Hour trainings, Yoga Therapy, & Polarity at the board certified level, on through our middle years of the first teacher trainings they dedicated their energy to building the awareness of yoga and all its principles.
YPC has graduated hundreds of Yoga Teachers at the 200 & 500 Hour levels, and many have gone on to open their own studios and create their own communities.
YPC has also graduated many Polarity Practitioners, and currently is the only accredited training center on Long Island approved and credentialed by the International Association of Yoga Therapists to offer an 800 hour, two-year program.
In Heather Principe’s words:
“When I decided that this would be my final year as the founder/leader of our community, and since
we have been a cooperative-based establishment, I decided that it wasn’t time for us to close our doors. Too much would be lost. And so, months ago, I began the journey of “listening” for the future of our little Center. This was not an easy task, as there are literally hundreds of Long Island Studios – and alignment with a studio had to have that “perfect fit”. That listening brought me to an awareness of Yoga Nanda, headed by Cara Stone.
The more I listened, the more I could hear a resonance of intention, a deep core like-mindedness of Yoga. And so, I approached Cara to come in and make Yoga & Polarity Center part of the Yoga Nanda community.
And so, to all of you. Every student, every participant, every teacher, every friend who has crossed our threshold over the years, I say: All my relations
I am not leaving, we are just getting bigger – and better.
Continuing in Service, I Remain…”
On June 1st, 2018, Yoga Polarity Center will become the third point of a new Nanda trilogy. The “Perfect Union” will bring the lineage of our schools of thought together as we grow to unite with our larger collective in compassion and service.
Join us on Wednesday, June 13th at 6:30pm at the Polarity Center to celebrate this union: Let’s Get This Party Started!!!!!
All Om Studio classes, instructors, and programming will remain in tact and now be offered as part of class cards applicable at any one of the 3 locations. Signature Trainings, Polarity & Therapy offerings will also be available at all studios as we evolve together to spread the healing qualities of these incredible practices!
