ASHTANGA VINYASA YOGA
Welcome to our NYC Ashtanga Yoga community! I’ve been living yoga my whole life, teaching since 2004, forever devoted to the daily practice. Today, I am grateful to share my passion for body-body peace and knowledge with all those who seek.
Scroll down for a taste of Ashtanga, Rocket, and the journey we can take together.
The physical-philosophical method created in ancient India is our most powerful vinyasa yoga today. Designed to systematically tone and heal body and mind through power of breath, Ashtanga Yoga is our most authentic connection.
Expect to discover your inner strength and flexibility.
Rooted in traditional Ashtanga, this rebel's remix lends West Coast creative vibes to the deep bass line of its Indian lineage. Everything is up for exploration. From handstands to kriyas, the esoteric and advanced yoga techniques are taught from the very beginning.
Expect high vibes.
"Turn your ambition into intention."

MEET MEGNA PAULA
Like Rocket Yoga, I was born in California and have deep respect for my Indian ancestry. Trained in Bharatnatyam from a young age, I discovered Rocket while studying Neuroscience at Duke University. I began traditional Ashtanga yoga practice and studying ancient philosophy during the years I was at Georgetown Neurology.
I've been teaching now for 17 years, and feel blessed to devote my life to this practice and calling. It is such an honor to be the Rocket yoga teacher for NYC! We all want to go higher.
