About Us

Founded in 2007, BambooMoves is a growing community that consists of yoga studios in Forest Hills, NY, Englewood NJ, Palisades Park NJ, and Baltimore, MD. BambooMoves hosts regular 200 & 500 hour Yoga-Alliance certified Teacher Trainings, workshops, and retreats.

BambooMoves Yoga is a welcoming community for people of all backgrounds to train their body, mind, and spirit in a nurturing yet challenging practice. Through our teaching students will become flexible and strong in body and mind and better equipped to deal with the various challenges of our stress filled modern lives; essentially embodying the qualities of bamboo itself.

Our Mission

Abiding by yogic ethical principles (yamas & niyamas), we conduct our business, teachings, and classes based on the principles espoused in Patañjali’s Yoga Sutras.  Honoring the ancient teachings of yoga, BambooMoves inspires the body, transcends the mind, and uplifts the spirit.  We believe that everyone can experience more peace and happiness – one smile, one breath, one move at a time.

Our classes are for students of all levels from first time yogis to life long practitioners. Each studio serves as a community center and sanctuary offering nutritional programs, workshops, selfless service, and healing.

CLASSES

a flow for every yogi

Restorative Yoga

Gentle movements followed by approximately 4-5 restorative poses using props such as bolsters, blankets, straps and eye pillows to assist you in soothing the body and quieting the mind. Very nourishing.

Slow Flow

Slow flow is a challenging class that moves you through postures slowly and mindfully. You will hold posture for a few breaths, fully savoring each pose. Slow flow increases strength, and leaves you feeling grounded and centered.

Gentle Yoga

Gentle classes are designed for everyone. They restore balance in a gentle, meditative way. These classes are ideal for those who want to move slowly.

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa is a practice of dynamic, flowing sequences that are designed to increase strength, flexibility, endurance and focus. It is an energetic practice that creates heat in the body. Some pose knowledge is helpful, but all are welcome.

Essential Yoga

Classes emphasize foundation-essential yoga principles that free the body and mind from habitual patterns and tension. In these classes, all students-even the most seasoned-can be challenged and can find inner balance and peace.

EveryBody Essential

An essential for all! All body types and abilities. This class will marry a slow flow of yoga postures with the use of breath work and props, to make the asana accessible for your body. We will meditate during each class as well. We welcome all students to this class, especially those who have some hesitation about group classes.

Energetic Flow Yoga

Affectionately referred to as Vinyasa Lite. It’s the perfect class to attend if you would like to try a flow class, or flow a little bit slower than in vinyasa. Standing poses and sun salutations are emphasized. You will slowly develop heat focus and strength.


Prenatal Yoga

This class is suitable for pregnant women in all stages of pregnancy and of all levels.

Tai Chi (Beginner and All Level)

The ancient Chinese internal martial art uses serene, sequential forms to improve health and focus.

Advanced Asana

This class begins with a vinyasa flow and then moves into more difficult poses that are held longer. Previous experience is necessary.

Chair Yoga

A gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting on a chair, or standing using a chair for support. Includes gentle movement, stretching, breath work, and self massage. All levels are welcome.

Mommy & Me

Bring your baby, ages 0-crawling, for this fun and beneficial class! Watch them interact and play while both baby and mommy develop strength, coordination, and balance!

Family Yoga

In Family Yoga you will find more interactive and partner poses for kids and adults to do together. The class will include beginner’s yoga poses, breathing exercises, games, and relaxation.

Tween Yoga

Fun exercises to increase flexibility, improve concentration, strengthen the body, and learn techniques for breathing and relaxation. Using visualization and breathing techniques, kids (ages 8-12) learn how to focus, relax, and become happy and healthy in body, mind, and spirit.

helpful tips

Basics for BambooMoves Classes

  • Please do not wear shoes into the studio and arrive early for classes
  • If you’re late please wait until meditation has concluded before entering the classroom. Arrive no later than 5 minutes after class has begun.
  • Try to keep your voice low in the reception area as there may be private sessions or classes in progress.
  • Classes are at least 75- 90 minutes, unless otherwise noted on the schedule. Please make arrangements to attend the entire class and avoid leaving early if possible.
  • New students are welcome in all classes.
  • Try to avoid drinking water during the yoga classes. Drinking in the middle of class can be a distraction from your practice and changes the direction of the Prana (life-force) that you’re moving upward. Drinking water during class can also cause nausea.
  • Our studio is committed to a space that is free of discrimination and judgement, and encourages support and respect.

Always remember the ten yogic rules of conduct:

Do not harm; do not steal; do not lie; be modest; do not be greedy; be clean in thoughts, words, and deeds; be content; work hard and be disciplined; study the higher Self; and dedicate your efforts to the Divine.
