Welcome to Grateful Yoga

We've been in business since 2005, supported by students who value a mindful practice that's a balance of effort and ease in a peaceful, non-competitive environment.  Our teaching is informed by the full breadth of the yoga tradition, as well as the modern insights of growth psychology, kinesiology and neuroscience.  Come try one of our weekly classes. We also offer private instruction, yoga therapy, restorative, yoga nidra, prenatal and postnatal.

Online store is wonky: The easiest way to buy classes or a workshop is to go directly to the Event or Class you want to attend and hit "Sign up now".  That will take you to the correct purchase options.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

New Program: Mentoring & Advanced Studies

At Grateful Yoga, we are fortunate to have a community of teachers with a high level of training and many years of teaching experience.  We are happy to announce a new mentorship program to allow yoga students, yoga teachers and medical or mental health professionals the opportunity to study privately with one or more of our yoga therapists. 

The specifics of your program will be co-created by you and your mentor. A Grateful Yoga mentorship can help you advance your practice and studies, understand the yoga training marketplace, expand your teaching career, bring yoga to your professional setting, or something else!
