New to Yoga?
Are you thinking of starting a yoga practice? Research has shown yoga helps to manage stress and improve overall health. Many people report feeling improvements after only the first week of practice.
Have an Existing Practice?
With a full class schedule and a wide variety of classes, Mindful Turtle has something for beginners through advanced practitioners. Many of the area’s yoga teachers are proud to call us their home studio.
I have now checked out a few of NYC/Brooklyn’s best Ashtanga studios.
With that wider experience here is what I have learned. Danielle Goldstein at Mindful Turtle, provides a level of Ashtanga individual attention that is outstanding. Danielle gives students at mindful substantial individual time to talk/model/explore/modify/deepen each asana to their individual needs. Her ability to adapt complimentary movements/exercises to efficiently progress each asana, to deepen our understanding of the mechanics of each posture, and to develop our entire primary/secondary sequence is nothing short of of a personal gift to each student. Not knowing any better, I took that level of individual attention and mechanical/personal understanding somewhat for granted; I no longer do. I am in your karmic debt.
Mindful Turtle is more than just a yoga studio. It is a wellness center, a healing space. It is warm, welcoming and clean. Danielle, the owner, is an absolutely amazing presence, a strong leader and a mentor to the staff and students. I’ve been practicing yoga all over Long Island since the nineties and this is the only studio of this caliber I’ve come across. If you just started practicing, or if you’ve been working your way along the path for some time, this studio will help guide you further along your yoga journey. Namaste!
New to Yoga I was always worried about going to a Yoga studio and being embarrassed that I have no flexibility or balance. I felt very comfortable at Mindful Turtle and have been able to do more than I’ve ever thought possible. The teachers are great very helpful and the other students are very welcoming. Wish I could go every day I’m addicted to Yoga now!!!
