Moonflower Yoga was formed over 3 years ago by
. Nancy wanted to
create a studio with small class sizes so that personal attention could be given to the
students in the class. Moonflower Yoga generally has a maximum of 6-8 students per
class, which provides an opportunity for a warm and friendly studio where its dedicated
team of teachers interact closely with the students to help them grow in their yoga
practice. The studio attracts a wide age group with special programs for young children
to help them cope in a constructive way to peer and school pressure to chair yoga classes
for seniors trying yoga for the first time.
There are a wide variety of yoga styles offered at the studio including hatha yoga,
Vinyasa flow classes, restorative yoga, yin yoga, Kundalini yoga, Kripalu yoga, sound
healing classes, and chair yoga. In addition, there are meditation classes with singing
bowls, as well as themed, guided meditation classes. Tai Chi classes are offered every
Moonflower Yoga has an ongoing, eclectic mix of interesting and fun workshops. These
include women's health issues, gallery readings with a psychic medium, astrology, Tarot
cards, goal setting and vision boards, mala beads, essential oils, art workshops,
vegetarian and vegan cooking, and Feng Shui. There is also the Moonflower Yoga Book
Club and Moonflower Yoga Needle Arts group where experienced members in knitting,
crocheting and quilting help newcomers learn these needle arts.
Moonflower Yoga also offers Reiki certification, as well as IET/Angel Healing
certification. The studio has Reiki Healing Circles open to all.
Giving back to the community is also an important element to the studio. Moonflower
Yoga worked closely with the Bellmore Chamber of Commerce and USMC and donated
over 150 toys to needy children this past holiday season. Moonflower Yoga students
have also generously donated 300 lbs of food to Long Island Cares, as well as donated to
Make A Wish and other charities.
Moonflower Yoga owner, Nancy Weshkoff, is a member of the Bellmore Chamber of
Commerce and recently joined the Board of Directors for the Chamber. Nancy was just
honored as the Chamber Member of the Year for 2015 for her charity work and for
helping the Bellmore community and strongly supporting small businesses.
