As we step into Year 11, we want to let you know how grateful we are to have you join us for practice - in studio and on line and are introducing the FIRST EVER summer challenge as a way to stay in practice all summer long! 

The challenge resets each month, so if you are away or miss a month, you can still be in it!  Practice 20 times in the month of June and get one raffle entry for one of 3 great prizes!  If you practice 30 times, you will get 2 entries.  All in studio practices count as double- so you only need 10 practices in studio to get in it! Challenge resets on July 1st - practice 20 times in July and get one raffle entry, practice 30 times get 2 raffle entries, practice in studio will count as double...3 great prizes given in July and then the challenge starts again in August!  Be in it to win it!!

Cost for the challenge is $269 which includes unlimited yoga from June 1st-August 31st!  If you are 5BPY VIP, Gold or Silver Member, entry fee is $29

Your health and safety is our #1 priority and we are committed to an environment that meets all NYS and CDC guidelines.  We have installed a new air purification system and 2 hand sanitizer stations - one in the lobby and one in the yoga room.  The studio is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after each class and we have a cleaning service to deep clean the studio weekly.  

WE REQUEST THAT MASKS BE WORN INTO THE STUDIO.  ONCE YOU GET ONTO YOUR MAT, YOU DECIDE IF YOU WANT TO PRACTICE WITH OR WITHOUT YOUR MASK

SOME IN STUDIO CLASSES WILL BE BROADCAST LIVE VIA ZOOM - If you do not feel comfortable coming to the studio at this time, we invite you to continue to join us for online practice LIVE from the studio! Please check the schedule for the classes that are available on zoom.  We continue to add classes to our virtual library that you can access at any time to practice at your convenience.  If you do not know how to access the library, please send us an email at 5boropoweryoga@gmail.com and we will send you a short video to show you how. 

To keep social distancing, we are still working with 18 spaces in the studio so we ask that you pre-register for class through mindbody at www.5bpy.com or through the  FREE 5 Boro Power Yoga App that you can download on your smart phone. NO WALK-INS without registration.  Spaces are available on a first come, first serve basis. No payment is accepted in studio.

**NEW CANCELLATION POLICY FOR IN STUDIO CLASSSES**
So that we can accommodate the community, we ask that if you are unable to attend a class you are registered for that you cancel your booking within 2 hours of class start time so that if there is a wait list, someone else can take the spot.  If you fail to cancel within the 2 hour window or are a no-show, your card on file will be charged a $10 fee or if you have a class card, a class will be used for the no show.  We appreciate your understanding of the new policy as with limited mat space, we want everyone who wants to practice in the studio to have the opportunity to do so. 

Doors will open 30 minutes prior to class - mask is required for entry.

Please be mindful of others in the studio and we ask that you do not come to the studio if you do not feel well!  

Since we have limited space in the lobby, please bring only what you need for practice - mat, strap, block, towel, water, hand sanitizer/wipes - right now, we will not have props or towels available or water for sale.  ONE CUBBIE PER PERSON PLEASE.

Please feel free to reach out to us at
718-667-5279 or email 5boropoweryoga@gmail.com if you have any questions.

IN STUDIO GODS & GODDESSES OF YOGA - A NEW MONTHLY WORKSHOP!

SATURDAY, JUNE 12TH - 1.30PM - 3.30PM

Join 500E-RYT Tier 3 Certified Baptiste Teacher & Certified Yin Teacher Shelby Caffrey for GODS & GODDESSES: A Guide to Hindu Deities Through Story, Mantra, and Asana. Each month, we will focus on and bring to light one God and one Goddess – we will learn their history as well as the poses associated with them to set deep intentions for our practice set to music.
We begin with:

HANUMAN, the monkey god, is the symbol of the power of pure devotion. Hanuman shows us that we have gifts beyond what we think we are capable of and it is his devotion to Rama that inspires us to live our lives beyond the confines of ourselves. With the intention of Hanuman we will practice hip openers leading us to Hanumanasana, front and side splits, without force or going past where the body is ready to be.

KALI, fierce and frightening, holds the power that leads us through destruction to powerful transitions. Although the image of Kali seems terrifying when we first see it, her fierceness is rooted in the deepest love. With the intention of Kali we will practice goddess pose variations leading us to arm balances and arm balance preps as we invoke and honor the power of transformation.

Cost is $20; $15 for 5BPY Gold & Silver Members; $10 for 5BPY VIP
