New York City now has the only authentic Ayurvedically-oriented yoga studio in the nation. Located in a serene space in the heart of the city at 375 Fifth Avenue 5th Floor (at 35th Street), The Yogâyurveda Shala offers both private instruction and intimate classes that never include more than 10 students.

The studio is co-directed by Scott Gerson, M.D., Ph.D. (Ayu) and his longtime Yoga instructor Sarah Platt, RYT.

In Ayurveda, yoga asanas and pranayamas are modified according to the specific mind-body constitution and needs of each student. The instruction here draws upon Dr. Gerson’s extensive training while attending the Tilak Ayurved Mahavidyalaya where he was researching the use of yoga practices for medical detoxification as part of his Ph.D. in Ayurveda. What he discovered was that an almost lost tradition of Ayurvedically-oriented yoga practices had existed for many centuries.

Today, we can all take advantage of this ancient wisdom which is being offered unaltered at The Yogâyurveda Shala.  Just as one’s diet and herbal supplements must be individualized, Yoga instruction too should be according to your specific body type.
