|Welcome To the Joy of Yoga in Saratoga Springs, NY|
The Joy of Yoga, is Saratoga Springs, New York's first dedicated yoga studio, and as its slogan reads, "still dedicated". The studio is celebrating its 22nd anniversary. Located at 376 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY, in the historic Arcade Building in the heart of our famous downtown, Joy of Yoga pioneered the yoga movement in this celebrated town, long distinguished by its springs for health and healing. This was a time when the seeds of hatha yoga, sown decades before in the United States by the great masters like BKS Iyengar and Swami Vishnudevananda, were just beginning to really take root and grow. Many of my earliest students came to the first Joy of Yoga studio, in May 1989, with a sense of entering something new and mysterious. Now, far from the realm of a cult, yoga has gained a phenomenal popularity in mainstream American culture, which I consider to be one of the most encouraging developments in today's problem pressed society.
