If you are recovering from an injury, please modify. Yoga is not a competition!


We have curated a select group of yoga instructors to bring you a range of teaching styles, philosophy and music playlists. Some classes have a DJ or live music. Each teacher approaches yoga differently. Each has completed 100’s or 1,000’s of training hours and will put their special spin on their class. ALL CLASSES ARE ALL LEVELS. Be open-minded and receptive to a new style of class or teacher.
