Curious About yoga and how to get started?
You’ve come to the right place.

Sign up for class!

Please arrive 10 minutes early to ensure your spot in class. If you are new to yoga start with our yoga 101 workshop or Lotus Basics class. Use the web-scheduler to make reservations.


Please take the class most appropriate to your level. We want everyone to have a yogic experience, which means honoring the truth of where you are in your personal practice.

Please respect a teacher’s decision if they feel the class is not for the best fit for your level/health/safety. Please let the instructor know if you are pregnant and/or nursing any injuries at the beginning of class.

Yogis 12 and over are welcome to take classes without a parent or guardian present as long as there is a signed waiver on file.

Community Donation classes are on a donation basis.
Recommended donation is $7-$16, paid in cash.
Credit card charges for a Community Class require a $10 minimum.

We have dressing rooms available for your convenience but please make sure to bring your own yoga mat, or rent one at the studio.

We also provide purified water to fill up your water bottle as well. Come early and stay awhile, plus enjoy a complimentary cup of tea.

We offer a 10% student discount with a valid student ID for yoga classes. This does not apply to specials, intro offers or workshops. You must have a dated and valid picture ID to claim this discount.

We offer a 10% senior discount for yogis 65 and older.

Class packages are non-refundable and non-transferable. (6) and (12) month packages may be frozen one time for a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of one month.

Class Packages have no expiration.

We have everything you need in our yoga boutique to get started or take your practice on the road with mats, props, yoga clothing, plus local jewelry, inspired books and beyond.
