Blog : Hridaya Hermitage Yogis Are In Town

By Sarah Mahoney | Feb 10, 2015 | in

Zev Yoga Studios will be hosting the Hridaya Hermitage yogis at their Portsmouth studio starting on February 12th from 6:00 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. They will be there every Tuesday and Thursday for the rest of February to offer a glimpse into their rich living tradition. They will be performing the traditional Vashi yoga practice as well as bringing their energetic and spirited practice to a total of 5 sessions. In addition to the sessions at the Portsmouth studio, the Hridaya Hermitage yogis will be hosting a home session which will include chanting, meditation, and a Q & A session, as well as light refreshments. This will take place on Wednesday, February 18th from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This is a donation based program and the suggested donation is $20.00 per session, or $80.00 for all 5 sessions, including the special home session.

Zev Yoga has been in business since 2006 and Jonas Amberger, the owner and instructor has brought great ideas and traditions to the business. There are locations in Portsmouth, Dover, and Exeter, NH now. Jonas has been teaching the ancient traditions of Ashtanga yoga for over a decade. Ashtanga Yoga is a method that involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures—a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.

Green Alliance has been working with Zev Yoga for several years now and they have been making great strides to keep themselves green. They emphasize a traditionally-rooted, holistically-minded approach to yoga which promotes overall health – the “sustainability” of the individual. They have made quality yoga affordable to all with a monthly unlimited rate that is roughly half that of all other Portsmouth-based studios, as well as use their studio as community space, offering it for gatherings, educational events and workshops.
