Classes, Talks and Workshops

Our diverse array of classes, talks and workshops, which we refer to as The Aligned Institute, have been created to inspire growth in all dimensions. These offerings are open to everyone; you do not need to be a member of the coworking space to participate.

Our wonderful teachers, who are at the top of their fields and devoted to our community, offer knowledge, wisdom, and heart to help us enhance our well-being and explore new levels of interior and exterior growth in the four dimensions of wealth:

MindBody Awareness, Heartfelt Community, Lifelong Learning, and Financial Abundance

Community Meditation

8:30 - 9:00 a.m. - Every weekday morning
5:15 - 5:45 p.m. - Tuesday and Thursday evenings

These free morning and after-work meditations are open to everyone. Start and end your day peacefully with silence, connection, and purposeful breath, followed by tea and snacks on our riverfront balcony.

This open form of meditation simply begins and ends with the ring of a bell, and is a great opportunity to make mindfulness a regular practice of your own.

For those new to meditation, guidance can be provided upon request.

Walk-ins are welcome. Please do your best to arrive on time and be respectful of the silence.

What our event attendees have to say…

Milton

A truly a special place…

I have attended several events at The Aligned Center, and each one opened my eyes and my mind in different and wonderful ways! It is truly a special place, both for the quality and differentiated content of the events and the speakers, and particularly for the embracing spirit of the community and the genuinely interesting people I’ve met there.

Laura

A treasure for the community…

The Aligned Center is a treasure for the Metro New York community. Residents of Westchester County enjoy the good fortune to have local access to world-class inspirational talks, workshops and seminars. The center’s Aligned Institute has expanded my world in all dimensions. I am an avid attendee of their classes, and I am grateful to be part of the Aligned community.

Alan

What a gift…

What a gift to have The Aligned Center right in our own backyard. If you are a seeker looking for a like-minded community, then you will feel at home. The workshops are rich with content, and the presenters are at the top of their fields. I’m fortunate to have found a home to nurture my body, mind and Spirit.
