peace (in body, speech, and mind)
Customized private and group classes offer a chance to deepen your practice, gain confidence, and receive guidance. They provide a unique practice tailored to your individual or group's specific preferences including overall experience, particular goals, level of intensity, and intention/theme.
Cultivate a regular yoga practice by joining us weekly and/or monthly. Gather as a community during our weekly Morning Ritual to find your rhythm for the day ahead and join our monthly all-levels flow classes to build strength, steadiness, and ease both on and off the mat.
Specialty series and workshops focus on a particular yoga style or theme and typically emphasize philosophy and combine the practice with other spiritual modalities. They are offered throughout the year, often aligning with seasonal or auspicious astrological events.
Beginning in August, we will offer a variety of services including custom private and group sessions, monthly flow classes, specialty series, beginner's workshops, and retreats. Stay tuned for updates!
Registration is currently opened for our 6-week Balancing the Energy Body Series. Space is limited to 10 participants.
YOGA AS INQUIRY
We recognize yoga as an active inquiry into our true natures. By turning inwards to face both our light and shadow selves, we are able to recognize and embrace the totality of our divine essence and connect more deeply with our highest selves, constantly moving towards more authentic spiritual growth.
As students of the practice ourselves, we aim to walk a path towards ultimate liberation and service to the greater good - we are empowered to share the practice with our communities, believing that this type of transformative self-discovery can be a part of the necessary change for the evolution of both our personal and collective consciousness.
We understand yoga to be borrowed practices and are committed to honoring its roots, respectfully bowing to the people of India, their ancestors, and culture, grateful to have the opportunity to learn from the wisdom of ancient practices and lessons
AN EMPOWERING PRACTICE
Classes emphasize meditation, pranayama, and creative sequences to create a multi-dimensional experience in which students are empowered to follow their own practice while being guided towards spiritual growth, inner healing, and greater self-awareness.
Teachers lead safe and compassionate classes that are designed to be accessible to everyone and offer a practice that can be applied both on and off the mat.
Note that classes are currently only offered online via Zoom due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Private classes honor the individuality of each person, recognizing that every body and every practice is different, and tailoring the practice to your specific needs and goals.
Small group classes are also customized, designed to meet the group’s overall preferences, while also offering a unique and fun way to connect with others and enjoy the benefits of yoga.
Sessions range from 30-90 minutes and include time for brief introductions/set-up as well as to answer questions after class.
Upon registration, you will be asked to fill out a brief questionnaire with your preferences including overall yoga experience, specific goals, level of intensity, and intention/theme. Once we receive your information, we will contact you to discuss pricing and scheduling.
Specialty series and workshops focus on a particular yoga style or theme. They typically emphasize yoga philosophy and combine the practice with other spiritual modalities (e.g., reiki, sound healing). They are offered throughout the year, often aligning with seasonal or auspicious astrological events. Current offers are below and are updated on a regular basis.
Balancing the Energetic
BALANCING THE ENERGETIC
BODY - THE 5 VAYUS
$120 for 6 weekly classes
In this series we will learn about the five currents of life force energy (Vayu) moving through our body and discover how they affect our physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Each week we will focus on one Vayu and explore:
Influence on organs and bodily functions
Associated chakras and elements
Signs of an imbalanced Vayu
Breath and movement practices to cultivate the Vayu and aid restoring energetic balance
Mudra and meditation
In the final week, we will put it all together with a practice integrating all five Vayus and harmonizing the energetic system of the body.
Watch our short video to learn more.

Space is limited to 10 participants. Book now to reserve your spot.
Our Beginner's Foundations is designed to provide individuals with an introduction to yoga. It offers an opportunity for newer students to feel comfortable attending a beginner or all-levels class and for more experienced practitioners to revisit foundational poses and practices.
This 2-hour session will cover:
Introduction to yoga as a practice, including basic theory, history, breathwork, and foundational poses.
Customized practice with the opportunity to discuss alignment/address questions throughout and at the end of class.
You will also receive an audio recording of a short beginner's flow to practice on your own after the session.
CULTIVATE A REGULAR PRACTICE
Because we understand the importance of cultivating a regular yoga and spiritual practice, we are offering donation-based weekly and monthly yoga classes to best support you in establishing and maintaining your practice. Please take what you need from these classes and leave what you can to support us.
While we hope to connect with you in these classes, we also offer free downloads so that you can practice at your own convenience.
As always, we are honored to be part of your journey and hope you'll continue to join us.

WHAT IS ZOOM?
Zoom is an online platform that allows for video conferencing.
You will be given a link before your class with information. Please plan to log onto Zoom a few minutes before class starts to make sure your microphone and camera are working properly.
CAN I CANCEL?
Please email us if you are unable to attend class. Cancellations must be received 24 hours prior to class start time to receive a full refund. Refunds will not be given for cancellations made in less than 24 hours.
WHAT DO I NEED TO SET UP AT HOME?
We recommend setting up in a relaxed, quiet, and calm environment, free from distractions. This will be your sacred space for our time together so feel free to include whatever (e.g., water, tea, candles, essential oil, blanket) makes you feel most comfortable.
At the very least, we recommend having a yoga mat and water.
A bolster, blanket, and 1-2 yoga blocks can help provide additional support, deepen postures, improve alignment, and protect against injury. You can also use items around the house (e.g., firm pillows, boxes, books) if you do not have immediate access to these props at home. Although teachers will offer suggestions for the use of props throughout class, they are not necessary.
ANY TIPS FOR PRACTICING ONLINE?
Teachers will be unable to provide hands-on support and adjustments. As such, we trust that you will listen to your body, resting and modifying poses if and when needed. If you have any injuries or health conditions, please be sure to email us beforehand.
All participants will be muted during the class to reduce background noise, however, please unmute yourself if an issue arises.
Be mindful of straining your neck to look at your screen/teacher. Pay attention to the teacher’s cues, especially as teachers may come out of a pose earlier than the class to check alignment or prepare for the next series; if you are confused or need clarification, fully come out of the pose to clearly see your screen rather than straining.
We are pleased to offer a variety of free audio recordings and videos so that you can continue your practice at your own convenience.
