About Dhira Yoga Center

About Us

The Dhira Yoga Center is home to an amazing community of practitioners who come together to breathe, focus, build strength and cultivate peace. We do this primarily through Vinyasa Yoga Classes designed for all levels.

Our name, “Dhira”, is a name given to the courageous, devoted Hanuman in India’s ancient epic poem, the Ramayana. The name “Dhira” is also associated with such virtues as being “steadfast”, “very gentle” and “very learned”.

The Dhira Yoga Center began its journey in upper Manhattan in 2001, in the community of Inwood, as the “Inwood Peace Yoga Center”. Our present incarnation as the Dhira Yoga Center is a home, like its predecessor, for all looking for a supportive community in which to breathe, to grow stronger, healthier and to practice yoga.
