GROUND AND CENTER

GROUNDANDCENTER.ORG

Ground and Center started as an idea born from two educators who wanted to do their part to help fill gaps in our education and healthcare system. We currently live in a world where anxiety, depression, and social/emotional learning needs are on the rise. The demands on children and their grown ups’ time/energy are ever increasing in the fast paced society we find ourselves in. With this increase comes a need for space for more active practices such as mindfulness, movement and embodiment strategies to help folks cope with the business of life. We’ve also seen how these widening gaps affect young people in real time.

Christy, having a son with Autism and ADHD has lived the frustration of booking appointments where waiting lists can be up to a year or more out. Therefore, leaving her and her child without the help they seek. Margot, having been working with a wide range of ages both inside and outside of the classroom has seen the challenges that come up when needs aren’t addressed and how they grow bigger as kids get older.

Both Margot and Christy are surrounded by youngsters and their grownups who can use a sense of community with a goal of building resilience and coping skills for life. We all have a role to play, and Christy and Margot have found their role here at G&C. Our story does not include being a replacement for therapy or other means of mental or physical healthcare, but rather a stepping stone, an interim or an “in addition to”. Together, the G&C family is one where we break chains, build community, and provide the next generation with a world surrounded by grace, reflection, and joy.

Celebrating Uniqueness, Together

Nestled in the heart of New York City’s vibrant SoHo, Sui Yoga is more than a hot yoga studio—it’s a space for conscious connection. Our name comes from the Latin sui generis, meaning unique, of its own kind. Sui in Japanese refers to the water element. In each of our offerings, we are committed to nurturing the unique potential of the individual while simultaneously fostering the expansion and joy that community brings.

Flooded with natural light and teeming with plants, our 6,000 square foot, bi-level space is a serene oasis. Our two spacious studios feature healing, restorative Himalayan salt walls and artfully-curated lighting systems. Our state-of-the-art locker rooms are outfitted with 12 showers, stocked with clean, all-natural bath products. Our café offers healthy bites and beverage options to help nourish and fuel you throughout your day.

Our interiors are curated with the utmost care and attention to detail, adhering to the principles of biophilic design—a concept that celebrates the symbiotic relationship between humanity and the natural world, encouraging a deeper connection with nature that strengthens our intuition, restores our natural rhythms, and promotes tranquility.

We invite you to slow down, nourish your soul, and activate your higher consciousness. Come visit us today.

One Yoga has established itself as a sincere yoga school, focusing on well-being and spiritual growth. Located on the paradise island of Koh Phangan, in Thailand, the center offers a variety of professional-level programs in its beachfront resort.

United in diversity, we want to incorporate and bridge the ancient wisdom traditions with modern-day practices. One Yoga’s mission is to make a positive impact on the world through the offerings of yoga and meditation retreats as well as teacher training courses.

Rather than being based on a single lineage, One Yoga’s teachings find their roots in multiple humble and authentic traditions. Our core values are humility and respect for all spiritual paths – and the many interpretations and different belief systems of Yoga.

 

Courses and Retreats

One Yoga’s programs include 200-, 300-, and 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training (certified by Yoga Alliance), as well as weekly Yoga Sadhana and Meditation Retreats. In addition to the on-site programs One Yoga also offers an Online Studio platform to support the growth of their students with online classes from wherever they may be in the world.

200-hour Yoga Teacher Training

One Yoga’s core program, the 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training offers a holistic experience, blending physical practice with spiritual growth. Accredited by Yoga Alliance, it welcomes all levels, emphasizing a deep understanding of yoga philosophy, breathwork, and meditation. Graduates gain practical teaching experience and a nourishing community of experienced teachers and like-minded yogis enhances learning.

300-hour Yoga Teacher Training

Take your practice and teaching skills to the next level with a 300-hour TTC. This advanced six-week program offers a comprehensive curriculum covering anatomy, teaching methodology, and yogic lifestyle. A previous 200-hour certification is NOT needed to attend this course. Graduates are eligible for RYT 300 or RYT 500 accreditation, distinguishing them in the yoga teaching community.

Yoga Sadhana Retreat

Designed for deep personal growth and the enhancement of well-being, this weekly retreat centers around Sadhana, the daily spiritual practice. It combines physical practices like asanas and Pranayama with introspective methods such as meditation, supported by philosophy classes. The retreat focuses on discipline and commitment, offering a serene environment conducive to intensive yoga practice.

Meditation Retreat

This week-long retreat offers a profound journey into meditation, suitable for both beginners and experienced practitioners. It features daily meditation sessions, yoga classes, and teachings focusing on mindfulness, inner peace, and spiritual growth. Participants who maintain a stable practice can benefit from stress reduction, emotional well-being, and a deeper connection with themselves, paving the way for self-realization.
