SKY TING was created for anyone looking for tools and techniques to handle life more gracefully and see the magic in a long life lived. We offer a practice that refines our ability to stay connected, be well-adjusted, develop greater consciousness, discover radiance, use life to our own advantage, and ultimately experience more JOY! SKY TING YOGA is medley of lineages. All styles of yoga have something different to offer, and cross-pollinating yogic material allows us to create a method wholly new and unique, yet refined with rich substance and history. Our teachers are encouraged to blend the yoga material they practice, identify most with, and believe in, rather than sticking to the prescribed, generic curriculum. This ideology creates a passionate, responsive and nurturing learning experience for our students. Our goal is to make the practice safe and approachable for anyone, while keeping the magic of yoga alive. (212) 203-5786 INFO@SKYTINGYOGA.COM @SKYTINGYOGA


This was an amazing training! I walked away both days eager to share what I had learned and eager to come back the next day. Alex was open to feedback and letting the conversation flow naturally, while still organizing it in a really effective way. This was one of my first introductions to Katonah Yoga and it definitely sparked my interest to keep learning more and doing deeper.

This wasn't a travel experience in the standard sense; it was a course, a series of online and in-person meditations, teachigns, experiences, and discussions led by an experienced instructor grounded in reiki, yoga, and contemporary shamanic practice. I've taken this course before and it's great! Highly recommend it.

This trip was amazing, I'll definitely be on another retreat with Sky Ting! The trip was way more than I could have imagined. Everything went smoothly. The only feedback I have would be for El Rey (hotel), and not Sky Ting or Krissy/Kyle. The hotel had a lot going on that weekend with a co-occuring wedding and I think they mixed up the rooms a bit. I think a few people may write about this because there was a bit of a domino effect with the room assignments it seems. I had paid for a king room and ended up getting a smaller room with a full size bed. It wouldn't matter so much if I hadn't paid for the larger bed and room, so that was a bummer that the money was gone and given to someone else as I had saved up for this as a treat :). My room was still lovely, and the retreat was amazing! But the messy hotel operations definitely deducted a few points from the overall experience. Definitely don't blame anyone in particular for it though. Thank you!

Had a great time on the Santa Fe Retreat with Krissy & Kyle. This was my first retreat so I was not sure what to expect, but this trip exceeded all expectations. El Rey court was chic and comfortable and the classes were amazing. Krissy and Kyle are the absolute best, and I would recommend any retreat with them. I came back relaxed and rejuvenated and with some new friends. Can't wait for the next!
