Friends of the Den
Baptiste Yoga is the style of yoga we practice at Lyons Den Power Yoga. We are the only Baptiste Affiliate studio in Manhattan and are a huge proponent of Baptiste programs and trainings with Baron Baptiste and Baptiste Institute Faculty member. We speak from experience when we say that participating in just one of these programs will change your life.
Baptiste Yoga™ was founded by Walt Baptiste in 1940 and continues to evolve this day due to the guidance and leadership of Baron Baptiste and the Baptiste Institute. The style is inspired by the hatha yoga teachings of Krishnamacharya and his students B.K.S. Iyengar and Desikachar, whom Baron Baptiste studied with personally from a young age.
The practice is designed to empower you with focus, training, and insight you need to achieve consistent results in the most important areas of your life. It is a powerful, flowing practice done in a heated room and asks the practitioner to SHOW UP IN HIS or HER GREATNESS. Learn more by visiting www.baptisteyoga.com.
