About  Yoga For Foodies Fridays

Yoga for Foodies is a unique and fun way to unwind on a Friday evening and rejuvenate your body and mind through awesome Yoga and delicious food in the company of other like minded people. Organized every friday evening in New York City, Yoga for Foodies includes 60-75 mins of Yoga class at a participating studio that includes several poses to wash to relieve the stress and give the body some much needed stretching and to whet your appetite. And after class comes the other good part – delicious food from a local restaurant or a meal cooked by the studio instructors/students.

So come join us for an evening that will leave both your soul and palate contented. You now have another reason to say, TGIF!

Update: Starting July 2012, we have received generous support from, a leading food video cooking website that has agreed to sponsor the food.

Yoga, Food and Chit Chat - the ongoing conversation at Newtown


1. Wow this is so awesome. Do i need to RSVP to attend?

We would really appreciate if you can RSVP for the events. But you are welcome to drop in as well. Bring friends!

2. What kind of food or restaurants you include?

Our goal is to promote local restaurants that one of us has personally eaten at and can vouch for the food. Yes we are foodies – we keep checking out local places. And in some foodies we get home cooked food from the studio owners who are really mucho good cooks.

3. Can i come just for the yoga as i may have other dinner plans?

Sure. come for yoga – rev up an appetite and head off to your dinner plans

4. Wait, i love this but i am a little new to yoga. Can i just join for the yummy food?

Of course! All foodies are welcome.

5. Folks, i am really excited. Do you guys do anything afterwards as well

You mean, go out and party? Yes, we do – after the yoga and the food is done, we are known to chill out in the studio, chat, sometimes walk across the street to a local bar (Duck Duck across Makara, 230 fifth a few blocks from Swanand Yoga) and party. Come with your plans, take us all

6. How can i get this started at my studio or a studio near me?

We would love to. Just shoot at as email

We hope to see you soon at a Yoga for Foodies Friday.

7. How can i contact you for more information

Just shoot us an email at or call us at 347-707-3453
