All are welcome to any class, from beginners to experienced yogis

Our instructors provide experiences that students of all levels can enjoy. Following the yogic principle of Ahimsa, non-violence starting with self-love, we encourage students to listen to their bodies. Seeking modifications, asking questions, and knowing the limits of our practice allow for the peace that comes with mind/body alignment.
