Williamsburg’s newest yoga studio wants to bring out the goddess in you. When Devi Yoga Studio opens Nov. 11, it’ll offer “divine feminine yoga” classes, among others.
Bridget Vizoso, a veteran floral stylist and the creative director at the Williamsburg-based Designers’ Co-op, has been practicing yoga for 18 years, having started at Jivamukti when it was a walk-up studio in the East Village. She recently graduated from Kelly Morris’s Conquering Lion program and has now brought Morris over to her new studio for 300-hour teacher trainings.
Vizoso hopes the modest digs on Grand Street will be a “sanctuary” where dharma and meditation are incorporated into flowing vinyasa-style classes. “It’s a younger clientele out in Williamsburg,” she said, “and it’s very important that they learn the roots of their practice properly.”
Hour-long classes will be $10 to $20, depending on what you can pay, and longer classes will be $15 to $22. More advanced iyengar classes will be $25.
The “divine feminine yoga” class will be taught by Adriana Rizzolo. In 2012, she co-founded the Awakened Feminine movement in order to teach women to connect with their own “authentic feminine power” and with “the love that’s shared when women come together.” Her classes promise a stronger sense of self-love and a greater sense of self-worth, among other things.
You can read more about Devi’s teachers here and meet some of them at an open house on Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. There’ll be a live bluegrass duo and a 30-minute meditation session led by Rizzolo.
