Heartspace is a community-oriented studio that offers yoga, meditation, and healing arts from a range of traditions.  Located in the Capital Region of New York, we have studios centrally located near Washington Park in Albany and on Monument Square in downtown Troy.  We provide a safe, supportive and tranquil setting with excellent instruction to help improve overall health, reduce stress, and invite a peaceful and calm mind through the practice of yoga and meditation. We offer instruction for all levels from beginners to advanced with daily drop-in yoga and meditation classes, series, prenatal yoga, workshops, special events, yoga teacher training, and several community classes per week, which are offered by donation.
