New Yoga Studio Opens in Tuckahoe

Prana, a new yoga studio opening in Tuckahoe this month, will be a “safe space” for anyone wishing to start or deepen their practice, as well as an engaged hub for healing and happiness in the community, says owner and instructor Amanda Alberico.

“We strive to create a very down-to-earth, approachable vibe to the studio,” she says. “Sometimes yoga can be stigmatized to be an intimating practice and can deter people, which is unfortunate. At Prana we’re hoping to break that stereotype and create a safe space where people feel comfortable to explore and deepen their practice so they can get the full benefits of yoga. I am so excited to share the newly renovated studio with everyone.”

Prana will host a grand opening celebration in early November, with the exact date to be announced. 

A lifelong resident of the Eastchester-Tuckahoe community, Alberico says she began practicing yoga after an injury. That turned out to be the first step of a life-changing journey, which has now culminated in the opening of her own yoga studio in the heart of the village of Tuckahoe.

“I turned to yoga to rehabilitate my body, not realizing the profound effect it would have on healing my mind and soul,” she says. “I fell in the love with the practice and eventually became an instructor myself. I always dreamed of having my own space to have the opportunity to share the gift of this practice with others.”

She says she envisions Prana as a means of giving back to her home community—not just by making yoga and its healing benefits accessible and non-intimidating, but also by hosting fundraising classes that support and bring awareness to worthy causes.

Among the range of classes Prana will offer are vinyasa (various levels), hatha, yin and therapeutic yoga, and as well as energy healing/clearing services.

“We want everyone to feel comfortable and find their style of yoga that suits them best,” Alberico says.
