What we're about

We are a group of individuals who have had the great opportunity to meet Shri Mahayogi and experience the grace of his teachings. Under his guidance we are striving to learn and come to know what Yoga really is by actually putting his teaching into practice during asana and meditation class and within our everyday life activities. Shri Mahayogi is unknown to many but we feel that his existence and teaching are a most precious and priceless blessing to this world. We sincerely would like for more people to know and experience for themselves the great blessing of Shri Mahayogi and the grace for which we feel so deeply grateful.

All asana and meditation classes, are coordinated and hosted by Mahayogi Yoga Mission, a non-profit organization established in 1996 by a handful of individuals passionate about sharing the teaching of Shri Mahayogi. All activities of Mahayogi Yoga Mission are inspired by the very existence of Shri Mahayogi himself and aim to make his teaching available to all who are seeking to learn the ancient path of Yoga in its purest and originally intended form.

Asana & Meditation Class by Mahayogi Yoga Mission

Still Mind Zendo

Today, the word “Yoga” often conjures up ideas of relaxation, flexibility, or exercises for physical fitness, and yoga classes catering to such ideas are abundant in New York City. However, in Yoga, the actual and ultimate aim is to still the mind so that the Truth of ourselves, of this world, and even of the entire universe will be revealed from within, and liberation in the truest sense of the word will be realized! This is precisely what living master, Satguru Shri Mahayogi Paramahansa teaches and is the same as what sages, saints, and the great Yogi of the past have taught for thousands of years. Mahayogi Yoga Mission, the organization dedicated to preserving the teachings of Satguru Shri Mahayogi Paramahansa in their purest form, offers weekly Asana and Meditation classes in which seekers of all walks of life come together to learn, practice and experience these teachings coming from a true master. Regardless of how one comes to the practice of Yoga, what one’s main interest is, or how experienced one is, all practitioners are welcomed into the class and guided based on their unique need and according to Shri Mahayogi’s teaching, which comes from his direct experience of the ultimate state of Yoga. Ongoing classes are held each Wednesday and Sunday evening from 7-9pm at Still Mind Zendo in Manhattan. The regularity of coming together with fellow practitioners is an important part of practice and provides attendees with an environment of support as well as the opportunity to experience a quiet and focused refuge from the busyness of everyday life. We invite you to attend and experience for yourself the teaching of Yoga and the transformative effect it can have on our lives. Class fee: • $25 cash or check Recommendations: • Keep an empty stomach • Wear comfortable clothing • Bring a yoga mat or towel • For new attendees, please arrive 15 minutes before class begins Location: Still Mind Zendo 37 W17th Street, 6th Floor New York, NY
