if you can breathe,
you can do yoga
Our yoga classes will be small and geared towards all levels. If you have never tried a class because you felt too intimated or you are not very flexible or worried that you wouldn’t be able to bend like a pretzel, then let me put your fears to rest, this is a space where you can come and learn how to do yoga without being flexible. There are no mirrors in our facility. We don’t want you focusing on your pose or what you look like but rather how you feel. Our motto is, “if you can breathe, you can do yoga”.
We provide lots of options
so everyone can feel successful
We practice at a comfortable room temperature so you won’t get over-heated. We offer Hatha and Flow style classes which is gentle stretching and poses that move at everyone’s individual pace. We will also offer our signature candlelight yoga.
If you have trouble getting down on the floor, no problem we have chairs and can modify the practice for you. If you have injuries or special considerations, no problem. Let us know in advance of class and we will accommodate you as best as we can. If you are a plus size person, no problem let us work with you to make you feel safe and comfortable practicing yoga.
