We're dedicated to making yoga available to everyone. We teach Hatha yoga in the traditional methods of Iyengar and Ashtanga. Hatha uses postures, in combination with the breath to develop flexibility and calmness. Our primary focus is on safety, and we teach careful alignment combined with conscious breath and quiet mind. We do not heat our rooms, as we believe the body fares best when allowed its own natural course of warming up and cooling down Yoga is for everyone. If you show up, breath, and try your best, you'll notice immediate benefits. All classes are encouraging and supportive.
There are many styles of yoga practiced today, yet all styles have derived from classical hatha yoga, and the Iyengar and Ashtanga Lineage brought to the West.

*** ALL CLASSES ARE ALL LEVELS.... If you have attended Yoga prior, you can start with in us in any class.
Work out clothes, sweatpants, etc. Avoid jeans, street clothes that are to tight as well as any shirt that might be to baggy, or get in the way of movement. Don't worry about shoes, and we are barefoot in yoga practice. Shoes are to be removed in the hallway (you an keep socks on, until on your mat). Please avoid heavy perfumes.
Please bring yoga mat if you have one. If not, we have a few extra. If you borrow, please wipe it down with supplied spray in the studio. Please replace all props in their location.
Try to arrive 10 minutes early, especially if you are new. Space is limited, so keep your footprint small. Relish the quiet. We are all here to find peace & equanimity. As we enter the studio space with just your mat, find your "space" to quietly sit or start stretching. Yoga is an Internal Practice, not an external exercise.
We believe Yoga should be available to everyone, which is why we offer certain classes by a gratitude donation. We do not put a "minimum donation" required, however please keep in mind that our teachers have numerous years of experience, are highly trained, and offer quality sessions.
