Stress is a major contributor to many modern diseases. Our yoga, tai-chi, meditation and other healing arts can help you to reduce and manage the stress in your life.
If you've never taken a yoga class before, or have only tried one or two, you might not know what to expect. This page will give you the info you need to get started.
We offer special classes and events from time to time. Visit this page to see what we have in store for you, and to make sure you don’t miss these great events.
Harmony Yoga and Wellness has been providing quality yoga classes, support and love for over 15 years. Our students come to us because we treat each one as an individual and customize for their needs. Watch this quick video to hear what our students have to say about us.
Step inside Harmony Yoga and Wellness in Wantagh and leave the world behind for a while. Nurture your body and mind in an atmosphere of relaxation and peace. At Harmony Yoga and Wellness, we respect the traditions followed by yoga masters throughout the ages, rather than running after the latest trend as many Long Island yoga studios do. Life is stressful. Yoga shouldn't be. We bring together the mind, body, spirit and heart to promote wholeness and wellness that is unparalleled.
We believe that yoga is for everyone, so we offer pregnancy yoga, mommy and me yoga, youth yoga, beginner to advanced yoga classes and gentle or chair yoga for those whose physical condition restricts them from a more vigorous yoga practice, such as Vinyasa or Ashtanga.. There is no stage of life where the ability to relax, breathe freely and move is unimportant. In fact, it may be most important for those whose ability to exercise is restricted. We provide an environment that is safe and welcoming for all.
We believe that Yoga and other practices utilized in the center are part of each individual's educational journey, helping them to create and motivate a mind/body discipline for themselves. Establishing their own discipline helps them to heal and develop into better physical and emotional health and well being. We carefully listen to each person's individual needs, body condition, health situation, goals for improvement, and use that information to customize their practice.
Meditation and yoga breathing techniques (Pranayama) are incorporated into our classes to help our students achieve the mind-body connection that maximizes yoga's benefits. Unlike the atmosphere in a gym, where the focus is on moving the body while distracting the mind with loud music, our health oriented yoga utilizes the great power of the mind to envision the desired outcome of health and peace, allowing the body to fulfill the vision.
Mariko Fusillo, the owner and director of Harmony Yoga and Wellness has taught yoga to over 5,000 students over the course of thirty years, more than fifteen of which have been in the same location on Merrick Road in Wantagh. Mariko is a mature pioneer teacher, who exudes warmth and courage, which is why Harmony Yoga and Wellness has been a constant presence on the south shore of Nassau County for those seeking Harmony of body and mind.
