Directed by Colleen Saidman Yee, Yoga Shanti is a full-time, year-round, East End yoga studio in the Hamptons, offering opportunities for every kind of student and a multitude of different yoga classes. We are blessed to have renowned teachers Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee year round, as well as an amazing guest teacher program, with teachers such as Richard Rosen, Richard Freeman, David Swenson, Manorama, and others visiting for workshops.
Yoga Shanti is long established as the place to practice yoga in the Hamptons, and has been featured in the New York Times, TimeOut New York, the Wall Street Journal, Yoga Journal and more. A recent review stated Yoga Shanti is “the Hamptons' yoga studio. You will never waste your time at Yoga Shanti. No matter if the class is hatha or Astanga, beginner or open, the teachers are always amazing."
Yoga Shanti also offers retreats to locations such as Morocco, India, Bali, Costa Rica, Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos, Mexico, and closer to home at the Omega Institute, Kripalu, Menla Mountain Retreat, and other venues
The principal objective in founding Yoga Shanti was to emphasize the spiritual aspects of yoga in addition to the more obvious physical benefits. Aside from asanas (physical postures), classes may include chanting, meditation, and philosophy instruction, drawing from ancient yogic and Buddhist scriptures such as the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, the Bhagavad Gita, the Dhammapada, and more. Yoga Shanti's aim is to help individuals increase their awareness of who they are, influencing how they relate to the world.
