Shanta, which translates to “Serenity” in Sanskrit, speaks to the serenity of which Spa Nalai was named. Beginning October 1st, Spa Nalai's Shanta Yoga program will promote holistic strength, flexibility and healing through both private yoga sessions as well as intimate group yoga classes to ensure both beginner and advanced participants have an invigorating, fun experience that meets his/her individual needs.

“As part of our continued efforts to offer our guests the best wellness practices and experiences, Spa Nalai has collaborated with renowned Yoga and Pilates instructor Terri Bahr, to offer a well-thought menu of varied wellness experiences to our guests.” said Amy Olthoff, Spa Director for Spa Nalai. “Hotel guests and residents have the option of pursuing a private yoga session with Bahr at one of Park Hyatt New York's serene spaces or choose to partake in an intimate group class here in our luxurious spa.”

Known for combining her rigorous fitness experience with a holistic wellness approach, Bahr is a certified Baptiste power vinyasa yoga teacher who has trained amongst the world's most renowned yogis such as Baron Baptiste, Seane Corn and Jonny Kest. Specializing in private and group instruction, Bahr emphasizes clarity of alignment throughout a physically intense and vigorous practice to instill presence and balance in each moment.
