 What is my pathway to health?

How do I access tranquility during tumultuous times?

How do I make the most of this precious life?

You may have heard that yoga will help you feel better
in your body. This is true! But it's also just the beginning.

Simple, enjoyable movement brings your body into balance.
Pain and tension begin to dissipate.
You feel more alive and awake, prepared to
act with confidence and clarity.

It's common to feel too busy or out of shape to join a class -
yet this is precisely why it's beneficial to come!

Yoga is a priceless investment in your long-term happiness.
You leave each class feeling more at ease in your body,
less bothered by stress, and more present to joy.

Here you will be welcomed into a community that
accepts you and supports your desire to grow.
Our highly-trained teachers will safely challenge and inspire you.

This humble studio can be your urban sanctuary -
the place you come to remember who you are
and who you want to become.

Summer Theme: Earth Practices


Yoga study begins with the root of our human experience - the physical body.  This summer, we will explore the unique intelligence of each part of the body, starting from the feet and moving upwards. Topics will include experiential anatomy education, good postural habits, the dialogue between effort and surrender, the skill of relaxation, and cleansing practices.  Learn more about our year-long syllabus here.
