“I love to see people get into harmony. My aim is to create a safe, welcoming, peaceful environment, and a sense of community. People can come here and feel safe and free and in harmony.”

Deborah Metzger, founder and director of Princeton Center for Yoga & Health (PCYH), is pleased that the center, which she opened in 1996, has been featured as one of the top five traditional yoga studios in New Jersey by New Jersey Life Magazine. It continues to attract many adherents, both longtime students and those new to yoga.

It has recently moved to a new location in the Orchard Hill Center at 88 Orchard Road (just off Route 206) in Montgomery. Ms. Metzger wanted more space for her growing operation, and she also wanted to offer a particular type of setting.

“This location is more like a retreat, with that kind of serene ambiance,” she explains. “You look out of the window and see wonderful views of the countryside.”

IF ever there was a time when the planet needed to be covered with blessings, it would be now.

The monks, from the Drepung Gomang monastery in the Indian state of Karnataka, will be creating a sacred sand mandala of brilliantly colored crushed sand. In an opening ceremony the evening of May 7, the monks will consecrate the space for the mandala, then they will quietly construct the work throughout the week. By Saturday the 12th, when the complex mandala has been completed, the sand will be swept up and carried to a body of water on the PCYH property, to be dispersed.
