David and Sharron are celebrity contortionists. Their spiritual capacity is as devoid as the New World Order and to believe otherwise would be as much a contortion as one of their absurd poster shots. How sickening that they should fly to India, Nepal, or Tibet every week in pursuit of their 'spiritual practice' while darker skinned people starve on the very streets which they live and work. The only memorable scene from this place is the center's grossly overweight manager Carlos, looking absurd in designer Jivamukti brand tights while attempting some of the yoga postures, while spouting the virtues of Castaneda's "Way of the Warrior".

Took two sessions at this studio a few weeks ago. They were very upbeat and fast pace. If you are looking for a good workout, definitely try out the classes. I did not care for the chanting in the begining. I liked the praying part without the music. The instructors are very good. Some would help you correct your postures. Best part is late night yoga sessions are available and the studios are not that crowded. The cafe is a very nice addition at the studio. It's all vegetarian and worth trying.

I generally feel that Yoga is not for me - it is to slow and just does not justify the time that I spend away from home. However, when I lived in New York, I stumbled upon Jivamukti Yoga Center by an accident, took a yoga class there and loved it. The pace was not too slow, the class was not "lets close our eyes and stretch" kind of class. It was just right and I was hooked. I went there once a week for 6 months and really enjoyed my classes. I highly recomend Jivamukti Yoga Center to anyone interested or not interested in Yoga.

Some of the yoga positions they make you do are best described as Chinese Water Torture only without the water. Still if you twist into these position long enough you will make Gumby look like an arthritic piece of gum. Good luck trying to get into these classes. They are often more packed than a Bloomingdale's White Sale. Reserve. Reserve. Reserve.

And one and two and one and ohhm and stretch. Come for the open classes. Stay for the continual benefits of feeling healthy and all flexy. Just schedule ahead instead of dropping in for the classes. They are often mad packed. They have this whole stretching/meditating/chanting combo that I find stimulating. Who's up for yoga? Anyone?
