In a world filled with violence and discord, how can a person find peace? A personal contemplative practice is essential to remaining centered amidst the storms of life. Still Mind Martial Arts & Yoga is a place where you can find the tools you need for inner peace and health through the disciplines of yoga, Aikido, tai chi, and meditation. The best way to make the world more peaceful is for people to become more peaceful themselves and share it with others. This requires a regular mind/body practice done in community with the support and encouragement of others.
Still Mind Yoga can trace its roots back to Steve Kanney’s Aikido Still Mind Aikido in 2003. Aikido is a Japanese martial art that is translated as “the way of harmony with ki (prana)” and is known as the “art of peace.” Steve Kanney has been training in this practice since 1978, having achieved a 6th degree black belt. Steve has also trained in tai chi since 1999. Kim Gold practices and teaches both Aikido and yoga. She began training in Aikido in 2006. Kim, a longtime practitioner of yoga, became certified to teach through Atmananda Yoga in New York City, and more recently Mark Whitwell's Heart of Yoga training. She is also certified to teach children’s yoga and special needs yoga.
The Still Mind Yoga teachers are dedicated, sincere, and expert yoga instructors committed to bringing a little more peace to this part of Westchester County. Still Mind Yoga is operated under Integrated Peace Arts, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit company.
Integrated Peace Arts is dedicated to supporting mindfulness disciplines in the Westchester County Community. Coming out of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have structured our activities to help yoga teachers recover from the devastating blow. As our mission is to support yoga, teachers are critical to the recovery. Therefore payments for classes are made directly to the teachers. As a nonprofit, if someone is unable to afford classes, we work to find a solution. If you are unable to manage a solution directly with the teacher, please contact us to help facilitate based upon need.
For classes by Kim Gold or other programs such as Tai Chi and Aikido, payment is to Integrated Peace Arts and is used to support our mission.
Still Mind Martial Arts and Yoga is operated by Integrated Peace Arts, and nonprofit 501 (c) (3) corporation. Financial information may be available at Guidestar & the NYS Charities Bureau.
