 What is my pathway to health?

How do I access tranquility during tumultuous times?

How do I make the most of this precious life?

You may have heard that yoga will help you feel better
in your body. This is true! But it's also just the beginning.

Simple, enjoyable movement brings your body into balance.
Pain and tension begin to dissipate.
You feel more alive and awake, prepared to
act with confidence and clarity.

It's common to feel too busy or out of shape to join a class -
yet this is precisely why it's beneficial to come!

Yoga is a priceless investment in your long-term happiness.
You leave each class feeling more at ease in your body,
less bothered by stress, and more present to joy.

Here you will be welcomed into a community that
accepts you and supports your desire to grow.
Our highly-trained teachers will safely challenge and inspire you.

This humble studio can be your urban sanctuary -
the place you come to remember who you are
and who you want to become.

Winter Theme: Solar Practices


Come build your light during the dark and cold days! Nick will spend the next quarter teaching about prana, the vital force that animates us and all things. We will learn to sense, channel and concentrate prana.  Solar practices help us move in directions that the mind cannot usually access, to the energetic source of mind.  Breath work, introspection and meditation will be our main tools. Learn more about our year-long syllabus here.
