ABSTRACT
The article reports on the opening of a yoga centre in Harlem, New York. Nirodha, Harlem's newest yoga center, opened last Monday. Nirodha, a Sanskrit word meaning, "to be free of impediments," is the third stage of Buddhist meditation before Nirvana, when ignorance ceases. Apart from offering traditional Eastern therapeutic exercises, Nirodha also offers West African dance, drumming and belly dancing classes. Bodywork and ayurvedic hot stone therapy are also among the classes the center conducts along with daily "Insight-Metta" meditation sessions at 6 a.m., 12 p.m. and 9 p.m.
