A good place to start

Breathe through the sensation of a handful of poses with extremely approachable names like Sleeping Swan, Butterfly and Puppy Dog.

CULTIVATE CALM

Learning to pause and lean into discomfort allows you to release tension, create space and find ease.

From our INSTRUCTOR

“As hard as things get, inside or outside of class, remember everything is temporary. Rest waits for you on the other side.”

FEEL THE SENSATION

a member’s perspective

“I actually come here to relax, but by no means is it easy.”
“There's a brief period of silence that lets me mentally shake off my day, let loose a bunch of thoughts, and find my breath.” 
“We start to move, and sync that movement with breath. There's some pretty challenging poses, which provide as much a mental adventure as physical. when you're holding a form for a long time, it's interesting to see where your mind goes, knowing you can bring it back.”
“Savasana is the cherry on top. After all that hard work, we get to lay back and find some inner peace. It's not like other classes where you're buzzing with energy; it's a different kind of calm that leaves you feeling centered and chill.”

Good to know

the 8 limbs of yoga

The practice has eight branches encompassing various aspects of life, including moral disciplines, physical postures, breath control and meditation.

DO YOUR BELLY A FAVOR

Those twisting and bending poses? They're like a massage for your digestive system, getting the blood flowing and giving your tummy a gentle rubdown.

what’s the role of mantra?

Mantras are those magic words in yoga that you can chant out loud, whisper to yourself, or even say quietly in your head. Repeating a mantra is a little meditation trick that can calm your busy mind and help you feel more connected to your inner self.

Our members say

“It's like taking a refreshing dip in a pure mountain stream; every molecule changes as body and mind align.”
