We offer yoga and meditation to increase the health and happiness of others. Present Wisdom provides live personalized online classes where you connect with the teacher, other students and practice in community.
We are a group of dedicated yoga and meditation instructors collaboratively serving Westchester NY and beyond. Together, we are excited to offer a diverse selection of classes for students of all levels.
Present Wisdom was created in 2020, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the closing of several local yoga studios and classes through area organizations.
