Our Philosophy

Welcome to Reflections

Reflections: Yoga is Freedom

Paula Tursi 20-year yoga teacher and 10-year student of Body Mind Centering developed Reflections as a way to merge what she found most inspiring in practices of Yoga, energetic healing and other spiritual practices, with her own personal truth.

Reflections is a community hub where yoga is more than just asana and self-exploration is key. An urban oasis nestled among giant financial institutions, Times Square, Broadway theatres and luxury high-rises in midtown Manhattan, Reflections encourages lifelong practitioners and basic beginners to hurtle fear, to transcend the tensions of city life and to immerse fully into the peaceful environment we have created. We believe yoga should be a journey of self-illumination, and we encourage each person to find his or her own path.

All levels are welcome; we encourage and support beginners. Flexibility not required!

“The buzz of community, health and wellness is apparent as soon as you walk in the door: a tantra workshop, an organic chocolate tasting, a child reading on the couch—Reflections is a very special place.” ~T’ai Jamar Hanna
