Daya in sanskrit means

kindness & compassion


Daya yoga studio evolved from a preexisting studio that opened in 2005 in Ridgewood. In 2014 we moved to Bushwick where Daya continues to thrive and serves not only as a space for practicing yoga, but also as a community center for beings living in the area and also travelers from all over the world. 

Our mission is to build a community. A community where people can grow, educate themselves, become more aware of the world around them and find ways to be healthy and in tune with natural cycles of nature, even while living in NY City. 

For all beings Daya offers group Meditation and various workshops in english, Polish and Spanish, to help people find their way of life and a feeling of home.

Through the practice of asana, pranayama and meditation we introduce a way to find balance and purify the body and mind to move to a state of higher awareness. 

Ayurveda, an ancient holistic approach to life is a way to be healthy and happy. We practice this ancient form of self care through listening to the body's natural balance, using food, diet, herbal treatment, breath and yoga to heal and preserve. Our goal is to help people understand and form a relationship with their individual bodies and personal needs. In a healthy body, a healthy soul lives. 

Yoga, art, music, dance, hiking, capoeira, intuitive movement and much more...find it here.

Seasonal practice, seasonal retreats, teacher training, karma yoga and everything else you need to make yoga help you to become a better human and constantly grow and create yourself. 

Drink the nectar of compassion from your own heart. Don’t look for compassion anywhere else, from anyone else. It is inside you. You are the owner of this great virtue.
