Our Story

Amanda Harding opened Prema Yoga Brooklyn (which means Divine Love in sanskrit) to create a space for yoga that is physically dynamic and deeply healing, welcoming and inclusive. In this fast-paced world, it is easy to become stressed, overworked, distracted, disconnected and tired.  The yoga practice uses the body, breath and mind in a particular manner to help us find energy, peace, dedication and contentment within ourselves and within a like minded community. 

At Prema, we imbue all of our classes with creative sequencing, real-world spiritual teachings,  foundational alignment and heart.  We honor tradition and, at the same time, blend those traditions with contemporary practices while instilling freedom and light-heartedness and, more than anything else, FUN. From beginners to advanced students, we teach yoga that is accessible and beneficial to all on their spiritual path.  It is our intent that our students feel at home in their bodies and filled with a sense of well-being, steadiness and joy. 

Each month we offer special events—including live music performances, meditation workshops, women’s groups, community potlucks, book clubs and more. Through our new initiative, Prema Talks, we welcome renowned guest speakers on a variety of relevant topics. The foundation at the heart of Prema sits within a true focus on service and non-harming (Ahimsa)—where we can be helpful and influential to our community at large, locally and globally. This is always our main intention and we are thrilled to see this essential part of Prema grow and serve. 

We look forward to seeing you and we welcome you hOMe!
