Temple of Joy

The Temple of Joy is a beautiful home studio space located on West Hill in Ithaca, NY.

We, Jyoti and Nataraj, welcome you into our home to share the practice of yoga, meditation, sacred chant, ecstatic dance, and spiritually diverse celebrations of life and creativity.

In addition to our stunning sanctuary/gathering room, we have 3 acres of woods with a gorge running through it, and a lovely deck overlooking the waterfall. We have also recently created a meditation garden with a mala walk (a path with 108 steps) for contemplation of a chosen mantra, affirmation, or prayer.

108-step walking meditation path

Directions from downtown Ithaca: Take Rt. 79 West up the hill and make the first left onto Sunrise Rd.  Follow Sunrise up hill (it will bear to the left at Westfield Rd) until you get to a T intersection, That is Taylor Place. Turn left and go to the second driveway on the left side. You will most likely need to turn around and park on the road (see below).

From the West: Take RT. 79 going East to Warren Place (where the road bends and the City of Ithaca begins). Turn right and go a half-mile to Cliff Park Road. Turn left and follow Cliff Park Road down to a T intersection where there is a stop sign. You will be facing the house. Take a little jog to the left and turn right into the driveway (or park along the road on Taylor Place).

The house is a large brown contemporary home with red trim and a detached garage. There are prayer flags adorning the front of the house.

Parking: There are a couple of spaces in front of our garage. If those are taken,  you can park on the road alongside the wooded area and gorge, on the East side of Taylor Place. Since this is a residential area, we want to minimize the impact on our neighbors, so please be mindful of noise and where you park. We encourage you to carpool so that we have as few cars as possible parking along the street. If  you need a ride to a class or event, or can offer one, please post on the Singing Heart Yoga Facebook Page.
