Several years ago I discovered Hosh yoga classes right around the corner from my home. What a gift!...the close proximity, the affordable class fee, the welcoming, skilled teachers all made my initiation to a yoga practice my own personal "perfect storm." Over the years, though, the challenge for me has been keeping consistent. Each and every time that I returned to Hosh, after a gap in practicing, I was always amazed at two things. One, that there were always improvements and changes...whether it was improvements to the physical space, different classes, workshops, teacher training(!) or various social gatherings and two, what even amazed me more, was that I would approach a class after a gap with some uneasiness and maybe some reluctance and as soon as I entered the door I would smell lavendar...I would get settled on my mat ....and it would feel like....aaahhh...what took you so long? Hosh has a special feeling about it...you are welcomed, supported and encouraged by dedicated teachers and staff. It's my secret home away from home....Thank you Hosh!

Hosh Yoga is among the most beautiful things in Greenpoint. Full of welcoming, friendly faces, Hosh makes yoga (and the peace of mind and health that follow) accessible and affordable to all who are interested—regardless of income level or experience. This is an amazing organization that aims to—and already does—bring happiness and well being to the neighborhood.

The only change I would make would be to increase funding streams so they could expand in whatever ways they would like. They've already done such wonderful things, I can't wait to see what comes next.

Hosh Yoga serves the community by offering yoga classes by donation. Unlike similar non-profits, they make you feel totally welcome. While the level of the classes may not be the most advanced, each instructor I have taken classes with there has been wonderful, and each class has been a great experience.

Hosh Yoga is a fantastic community yoga studio. Most pay-what-you-wish studios are very large, with very little teacher-student interaction. Hosh's classes are maximum 20 people. Their teachers are above average, some are extremely knowledgable. Hosh also serves are a community center, with monthly events.

Hosh keeps adding classes and workshops-- they keep getting better and better! I can't tell you how NEEDED a good donation-based studio is in Brooklyn.

I have had great experiences at Hosh Yoga. As a recent transplant to the Greenpoint area, I'd been at a bit of a loss as to which yoga studio I should attend. Hosh is clean, the instructors are welcoming, and the classes are not overcrowded. The instructor genuinely care about how you are feeling that day. The level of instruction was superb, and I always feel wonderful when I leave class. The pay-what-you-can scheme is incredible. I would not be able to afford yoga classes at a conventional studio. I wish Hosh all the best.

Hosh is such an amazing place that brings our community together. Offering affordable yoga for anyone who wants to practice is a great way to spread the benefits of a yoga practice. Any day I want to practice yoga, there are classes I can fit into my schedule. It has really helped me stay with my yoga practice despite being laid off this past year. The different class choices allows me to grow with my practice. I also never get bored with a teacher because I have many to choose from.

While my roommates friends from England were visiting i took them to a class. They thoroughly enjoyed their American yoga experience!

I also think telling people that I practice at a non profit yoga studio where all the teachers donate their time, and classes are donation based makes people want to check the place out. I think they are less intimidated about coming to Hosh because of it's message and pricing, than other for-profit studios.

I feel good about contributing to Hosh because by donating and practicing there I'm not only doing something beneficial for myself I feel I am also helping out the community and encouraging others to start a healthy practice.

my body and my mind. Hosh has allowed me to continue my yoga practice by offering classes at all times of the day - every day. I can always find classes to fit into my schedule. Plus, having been on unemployment for the past year I don't have to sacrifice my fitness regiment because of my income status. It is so important to exercise and learn ways to de-stress. Hosh has been an important part of my mental and physical well being through out that tough part of my life as well as today.

offer more workshops on week nights instead of only on the weekends.

Hosh is such a wonderful addition to my neighborhood. They are truly living up to their mission to make yoga accessible to anyone. The By Donation model is embraced by every teacher - they are never watching who contributes, and they welcome everyone. I am impressed at how many classes they offer, the quality of the teachers, and the cleanliness and warmth of the space.

I can live healthier in mind and body for far less money, plus it's inspiring to see that such a model ("by donation") can thrive in my community. It gives me faith & more love for my neighbors!

Give it a proper front door or more visible entrance with adequate signage so that more people know it's there and can take advantage of it.
