Ahimsa Yoga School is Ithaca’s most traditional Yoga center. We opened in 2007 with a vision to create a safe and uplifting space for everyone to have the chance to experience Yoga!

Our programs include Dharma Yoga classes~levels I, II, III and IV, Deep Relaxation, Chakra balancing, Breathing, Meditation, Kirtan, Dance, 200 and 500 hour Teacher Trainings, Ceremony, Puja, lectures, Yoga Lounge parties, discussions and more. All of our teachers are highly trained, certified Yoga professionals. Advanced practitioners will be challenged and ushered into their next phase in level III and IV classes, while beginners will be welcomed and guided safely into the practice in level I and II classes. We also offer programs and classes for people recovering from illness, injury or addiction. Everyone feels welcome at Aakayani Yoga Center and has the opportunity to find the perfect class or program to suit their needs.

For over four years we have offered a minimum of 5 hours of free and donation-based programming every week and are committed to continuing this effort through our ‘VSF’~Vikara Scholarship Foundation (to donate to the foundation, or to apply for scholarship~ask Hawk!). We believe that everyone should have the chance to learn about and practice Yoga regardless of any limitations be they physical, mental, emotional or financial. The VSF targets youth at risk, challenged adults, verterans and their families, elders who can’t afford Yoga but need it, autistic children, and people in Ithaca who need Yoga but can’t afford it.

We have classes 7 days a week. Check out the scedule page and the special events page. Please feel free to contact us by phone or by email with any questions!
