Reflections on the final day at AYNY on Broome St.

Honestly, I’ve been expecting there to be more written about the last day or days of Ashtanga Yoga New York at its Broome St. location.

This piece at Huffington Post is the first I’ve seen beyond some Instagram/Facebook post. Enjoy:

During the last week at AYNY, memories arose, like the very first time I practiced Mysore with Eddie. I was intimidated surrounded by so many extraordinary practitioners. It didn’t matter that I had been doing the entire first series elsewhere.

“That’s all for today, Debby,” Eddie called over.

I was stopped my first day after Navasana (boat). I stayed there for several weeks. It was humbling. More importantly, it was safe. I progressed to the next pose when my body was ready, not my ego. One year later, I completed the entire first series.

Obviously, that’s not from the last-day memories. But you’ll have to click the link above for those.

Big news: AYNY not moving after all

We couldn’t be happier with this news from Thursday:

Due to a last minute financing failure, the sale of our floor did not go through to the Hair Salon, but instead was purchased by a new buyer who stepped in at the last minute. We have signed an agreement with the him to stay on for six months, with the possibility of extending for another six months after that, depending on what he decides to do with the space. So – though it seems like we have gone through much ado about nothing – I am very happy to announce that AYNY IS NOT MOVING at this time. Fingers crossed that we will have one more full year on Broome St.

More at Eddie’s public Facebook page.

We may get a chance to practice there once again, after all.
