The Blog

At mang’Oh, we believe the practice of yoga is a celebration of life. We run a boutique yoga studio in NYC, teacher trainings in NYC and the Hudson Valley, and retreats around the world. Our blog takes the practice of yoga off the mat, exploring topics that allow you to build the strength and serenity to live your life with beauty and abundance.
