You’re not the only one, but you’ve come to the right place. A consistent yoga practice will help you develop your flexibility and strength slowly over time. But alignment principles are important, we can help with that.




During pregnancy, we recommend you take pre-natal yoga classes with one of the wonderful local pre-natal yoga teachers in the area. We currently do not offer pre-natal classes.

It is not recommended to practice Ashtanga yoga on the first 3 days of your period. If you do practice, avoid twisting postures and inversions.


Due to COVID 19 we are unable to provide mats or yoga props in classes. Please bring your own equipment


Practicing postures (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama), and meditation are valuable steps in developing any contemplative practice. They help calm us down so we can focus the mind and connect you to the Self.
