Grateful Yoga Is Virtual

Because our space can only hold a few students with social distancing measures, despite a move to Phase 4, we have decided to continue holding all classes online through the Zoom platform.  You can attend through your phone, tablet or laptop.  The procedure is fairly simple:

  • Register for class as usual through our schedule page.  If you have trouble with our website, try the Mindbody website or the Mindbody phone app
  • You will receive a confirmation email with a link to the Zoom meeting. SAVE THIS EMAIL
  • Before class begins, find a quiet place in your home large enough to fit your mat with space to stretch out in all directions. A stack of books can serve as a block, beach towels and small blankets work for cushioning and couch cushions can be bolsters.  Maybe turn on Do Not Disturb mode on your phone?
  • When you are ready, click the link you received in the reservation email to sign in for class.  Please try to "arrive" at least 5 minutes before class starts so the teacher knows who is there.

Class recordings now available

If you'd like to attend a class but cannot make it during the livestream, we can send you a link to view the recording, good for 7 days.  Register as normal, then email us to say you'd like to receive the recording.

New Member Benefit

Members now get access to a video archive of our best classes.  For just $105/month, you can take all the classes you want, any time you want... It's a great way to motivate yourself to practice regularly and support our studio.  Learn the details here.

Fall Theme: Moon Practices

ajna with moon

After a summer of experiential anatomy, this fall we will pursue moon sadhana - practices that explore and cultivate the mind.  (Learn more about our year-long syllabus here.)  Both moon and mind are constantly changing, and both “reflect” other energies.  We will use movement and breath to engender states of stability and calm, which support further work with meditation and self-inquiry.  In other words, we will turn our attention from physical to mental alignment. 

We will also consider different models of the mind, both Indian and Western.  We will meditate more regularly and develop a repertoire of foundational meditations.  By winter, we will be ready to move into the realms of prana, the animating intelligence of life.

Some recommended reading for this fall:
