Our signature class created by our Founder, Nicole Zornitzer. This class is a kaleidoscope of meaningful expression through movement of the body; relying on the core values presented in Pantanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Dynamic music is used to spark the soul-body connection. Attention is brought to the release of stagnant prana (energy), while simultaneously honoring the culmination of life’s journey. The soul is where we find ourselves, the practice is our compass to arrive.

Slow Flow to Yin Yoga

Hatha yoga focuses on balancing the body and incorporates yoga asanas (poses) and
breathing techniques that are taught at a slower pace. Often, a pose is held static for
a bit longer than a typical Vinyasa class. This class is then fused with our Traditional Yin as taught by Bernie Clark and Paul Grilley. Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga incorporating principles of traditional
Chinese medicine, with the traditional asanas (postures) that are held for longer
periods of time than other styles of yoga. This class is the perfect fusion of action and relaxation.

Niyama Restorative Yin

The intention of this style of yin is to slow down and open the body through passive stretching.  Fully supporting your body, with minimal movement, supported by props for ultimate pleasure, comfort and alignment.  Often taught with a guided meditation.

* Appropriate for all levels


Niyama Raja Yin (HEATED)

With deeply spiritual and philosophical roots, this practice is a heated yin class that provides fiery and a challenging approach to all traditional yin postures.  This style of yin is intense, will provoke internal fire and encourage internal inquiry.


*Appropriate for advanced levels

Niyama Wall Yin

Similar to the restorative style of yin with the introduction of the wall for support.  Use of the wall encourages deeper stretches with support.  This class allows one to release and truly let go while being “held” by the wall.


*Appropriate for all levels

Niyama Yoga Ropes

The rope wall was developed by BKS Iyengar, who used it as a prop to support and intensify his asana practice.  The ropes work by using gravity as a natural form of resistance, allowing the body to open more than if in a traditional yoga class, and allows the practitioner to go deeper into their poses. This practice brings a fresh perspective to understanding traditional asana frombackbends to forward bends or twists. Rope poses are especially beneficial for spine health by using traction to relieve pressure from compressed vertebral discs.  


Niyama is one of the only shalas providing this modality of yoga classes in New Jersey, using the most quality rope wall which was created by Alison West of Yoga Union NYC.

*Recommended to take a Ropes Workshop prior to attending, but not required. This is appropriate for all levels and encouraged for all whom have back pain
