Awesome Asana Yoga is an hour-long exercise in body stretching and mind cleansing taught by registered yoga teacher Chelsea Best. As Chelsea says, “Awesome Asana offers a unique yogic journey, linking breath with movement in a meditative Vinyasa Flow class style designed to awaken the spirit and bring the body and mind back to a place of peace.” The class is Open Level Vinyasa, and is moderately challenging.
MJM’s Awesome Asana is part of Chelsea’s “Localize Yoga” project, which aims to make yoga affordable and accessible – to present it “as a possibility, rather than as a luxury” – to the denizens of upper Manhattan. The class is $5, and mats, should you need one, are provided.

Unfortunately, some tenants dispose of large items such as unwanted couches, mattresses, shelves, tables, chairs and dressers by placing them next to the garbage bins.  Garbage disposal companies cannot empty our bins and as a result we get overflowing garbage, bad smells, angry neighbors and bugs. Due to tenants disposing garbage incorrectly the building receives fines from the Dept. of Sanitation.
Please be mindful that bulk trash is only allowed to be placed outside for      disposal on FRIDAYS after 2:30 PM . In the event that the building receives a fine due to tenant negligence, the tenant will be held accountable to pay the costs incurred.  
Only household trash (tied in plastic bags) should be disposed down the chute for the garbage compactor.  Any other items such as cardboard boxes causes the system to get clogged.
