Halima Henderson Yoga
I received my teacher training at Yogamaya NYC and have taught yoga in NYC since 2014 in studios, corporate wellness programs, actor conservatories, hotel spas, privates and online! My Vinyasa yoga classes focus on proper alignment & straightforward yet challenging sequences in a lighthearted and welcoming environment. I’ll give you clear, concise cues with space to breathe, move, & grow. If you're thinking "I could never do yoga!" You're in luck yoga, I offer beginner classes too and they have remained my favorite classes to teach. Each class starts with a short dharma talk & ends with savasana to leave your body, mind + spirit decompressed + strengthened. On a personal note, every time I step in front of a class, I learn something new about the practice, about what it means to be human, and how grateful I am for the time we get to share and learn together. THANK YOU!
I'm a native of Bay City, Michigan and a PROUD alumna of The University of Michigan with dual degrees in Spanish Literature and Journalism and MA in Arts and Entertainment Administration from EMU.
Off the mat, I've completed the NYC Half Marathon (twice!), love all things dance related and am learning to play guitar. I am an actor and theater teaching artist and bring my yoga with me into just about everything I do! Being able to stay rooted and authentic when balancing a lot, is what brought me to yoga and I hope to share that with everyone that practices with me. Celebrate your body + your journey. Come curious, come to play and come rediscover yourself. Can't wait to meet you on the mat!
I just wanted to say how wonderful your classes are. I Love your flows and your attention to alignment and your incredible energy. Your classes are literally the only ones that have given me a semblance of the in-person experience, and I just so appreciate your combination of diligence and playfulness.
