On-going Yoga

This class is typically designed for students who have been practicing with us for a while. However, a person who has enough experience with yoga in general may find this class very well suited for them to learn more about the subtler dimensions of yoga practice. If you are not familiar with the style of yoga we teach (Desikachar/Krishnamacarya lineage), please get in touch with us so we can together determine if your expectations and background are likely to be compatible with our style of teaching and the intentions of this class.

Tuesday mornings 9:30 to 10:30 AM

  Tuesday evenings 5:45 to 7 PM

     Thursday mornings 9:30 to 10:30 AM

       $72 for the six week series  


Gentle Yoga 
Monday mornings 9:30 to 10:30 AM

Due to the very individualized nature of the instruction in this class, class size is limited to eight participants. This class brings the benefits of yoga to a diverse group of individuals. It is designed for overall healthy people who have particular conditions that they wish to understand better before engaging in a general yoga class as well as for people dealing with illness, injury, medical treatments, chronic stress or reduced stamina. Depending on the situation, we may advise a perpective participant to begin with one private class so the teacher can better understand the person's particuliar needs and goals, especially if they are new to yoga. Tuition is $72 for a six week Series.

Mantra Yoga


will be offered on January 14th, at 7:15 PM so people can understand and experience very simple mantra practice. If you prefer not to use your voice, the sounds can be repeated silently. Attendance of this free presentation does in no way imply a readiness or a commitment to sign up for the Mantra Course, just an interest in finding out more about this practice.


January 21st, January 28th and February 5th, 7 to 8 PM.
Tuition is $30.

In this course, we explore the practice of Mantra so you can develop confidence in your understanding of the role of mantra in meditation practice. You will learn some mantras with proper enunciation and intonation so you can practice "japa" (mantra repetition) the way it was intended to be practiced. In the course of this learning, you will also start identifying your personal intention for meditation practice.
