who we are
Nice to meet you, we're Michelle Timek Yoga.
Our offerings are approachable, playful, genuine, supportive and experiential. We practice intuitive movement from the inside out. This moving meditation is rhythmically attuned to our breath, so it feels organic, natural and powerful. It's balance; it's gentle strength; it's going back to the essence and core of you.
This flexibility goes far beyond the physical. Having the freedom to shift and move from the inside out gives us the opportunity to become aware, to listen, to connect and to feel. From this place of tuning in, we can discover, expand and grow. When you learn to trust yourself and let your intuition guide you, that's where the magic happens! Your practice will always be as unique as you are. Sometimes it's strong, sometimes it's quiet, but it will always be authentically yours. And we're here to guide you along the way.
There's no other studio or place like Michelle Timek Yoga, so feel free to stop by for a visit, take class and become part of our welcoming yoga community. See you soon!
After several years of searching for just the right place, Michelle and Dan Timek proudly opened doors to Michelle Timek Yoga studio in September of 2015, four years after its creation. To expand and take it to next level, using multiple spaces around town teaches class at various residential buildings, gyms and other locations. The studio is conveniently located in the revitalized and bustling Power House Arts District, just two blocks from the Grove Street PATH station the heart of Downtown Jersey City.
The studio is born.
After just one look at the space, Michelle and Dan could see the unique potential it had for transforming it into first and foremost, a homey and welcoming flagship yoga studio that conveys the simplistic and calming tranquility of ocean-inspired colors, textures and raw materials that reflects "flow", otherwise know as "Vinyasa".
In addition to the spectacular indoor space, classes are held outdoors (seasonally) on the 11-story wide open rooftop, boasting panoramic views of downtown JC and Manhattan. If you've not seen a sunset from the roof yet, you're in for a real treat!
Home is where the heart is.
The space is also called home for the Timek Family (Michelle, Dan and baby Violet) who reside on the other side of the reception and studio area. Little Violet's had the unique opportunity to grow up in the studio surrounded by lots of wonderful people in its growing community, and on occasion, leading a class or two. If you get to be welcomed by her, you'll quickly see she's the friendliest greeter you'll ever meet. We hope you feel right at home in our yoga home!
Let us host you.
What was once a marketing office is now an inviting, family-friendly work-live space in the historic building of 150 Bay Street. This century old landmark (circa 1906) was the original A&P grocer's warehouse delivery facility that was converted into residential and commercial studio loft spaces (2006), well before Downtown was what it is today. It is the only building in Jersey City that facilitates a work-live environment and houses multiple artists, small businesses and entrepreneurs and Michelle Timek Yoga is proud to be part of it.
