Our Mission


Founded by Alana Kessler, a native New Yorker practicing yoga in NYC since the 90's, Sangha Yoga Shala is intended to serve as an urban sanctuary where through community, arts, yoga and mindful living you will discover how to “nourish yourself and feed the world”.

Adapting the extraordinary pace, culture and sophistication of the city with an intentional, unique and modern approach to discipline, consciousness and spirituality, the Sangha mission is to awaken and invite individuals to experience and transform from yoga’s accessibility and healing.

Sangha Yoga Shala is a sophisticated, urban, spiritual community. We a offer a variety of traditional and accessible yoga and movement classes, led by our diverse team of professional and welcoming teachers.

Offerings include Basics, Ashtanga Inspired Vinyasa, Core Vinyasa, Open level Vinyasa, Core Fusion, Express Pilates, Post Natal Pilates Restorative, Hatha, Prenatal, Post-Natal/Baby & Me, other workshops and community events.
