“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Malka Friedman-Kosner to the Sangha class schedule!
We are thrilled to introduce the newest member of the Sangha family Malka Friedman-Kosner. Malka will be leading 2 new Vinyasa classes. Join her Sunday afternoons at 4:30pm (starting this week September 18th!) and on Friday evenings 6:30-7:45pm (starting October 14th).
All of our Vinyasa classes are open to all levels of experience and incorporate a dynamic flow with a creative and intelligent exploration of postures.
Malka began practicing yoga several years ago and hasn’t looked back. From the moment she stepped on the mat, she knew it was just the beginning of a lifetime journey – full of mindfulness, openness, devotion, and so much more. After years of developing a deeper, regular practice, she wanted to share her love of yoga with others and decided to become a teacher. She received her 200-hour training at O2 Yoga in Boston, MA. She is forever grateful to Mimi Loureiro, founder, and all of her teachers at O2 Yoga who have continued to inspire her.
Malka has recently moved to New York and is excited to be a part of this diverse and energetic city! She is incredibly thankful to have found the community at Sangha Yoga Shala. Her vinyasa classes are inspired by Ashtanga yoga, with clear cueing for postures, stages for various depths, and thematic sequencing. She also places a strong emphasis on alignment and anatomy.
