  • discover how to use the 3 limbs of Yoga (poses, breath and meditation) to get “unstuck” and live more meaningfully and wholesomely
  • begin to formulate an improved life narrative and approach that is unique to you by honing in on aspects of the Gunas and Chakras that need adjustment

what people are saying about the gunas & chakras series…

very useful and pertinent to my other studies…

I plan to deepen my understanding and integrate this knowledge into my daily life. This series has shown me that I need to work on my chakras.

fantastic intro to the inner components of oneself…

[In the] small group, it was easy to feel comfortable. After a slide into depression, a bad job, and a car accident, I spent a lot of time in therapy learning to get out of my head. Now it's time to get back in tune with my thoughts...this course was a great intro!

would recommend this series to those seeking balance, guidance, support, and the beginning of a spiritual journey…

Well-thought-out and planned...with flexibility. This series showed me where my own imbalances were and it also gave me words for what I already know about myself. As I do a lot of art for self-care and expression, after one class I was inspired to create art. It also motivated me to integrate the chakras into my personal therapy sessions. Thank you so much for opening my mind to this!

a little awareness beforehand, definitely more illuminated…

[The class] was informative and fun. The oils were also great to try!

everyone needs that perfect balance for themselves…

I felt [the class] was very informative --I loved that we not only learned about an aspect of Yoga that many of us may have not been aware of, but there was open discussion regarding the material. I also think constantly about where I am within each of my chakras and its relation to my gunas. I know how to find the areas within myself that need a little more love if I am stressed or anxious. From what I have learned in this class, I can try to pinpoint why people are the way they are and have more compassion and patience when dealing with them.

My goal is to reach out and teach others how Yoga can awaken and transform body, mind, and spirit: on and off the mat.

Awaken, grow, illuminate. That is our shared goal.

Current classes

pranalahThis 75-minute class is suitable for those with little to advanced Yoga experience. Yoga Pranala, in the Hatha tradition, includes asanas (poses), meditation, energy  movements, and pranayama (controlled breathing).  In Yoga Pranala, we are rooted to the earth and connected with the breath as a means of concentration and mindfulness throughout the practice.

pranalahThis 90-minute class is Yoga Pranala with the restful Yoga Nidra practice at the end of class.  Done lying in the resting pose of Savasana, Yoga Nidra is a systematic practice of bringing the practitioner to a deep state of relaxation, with 20-minutes of Yoga Nidra being equivalent to 2 1/2 hours of restful sleep.  This is considered the dessert of any Yoga practice as it  brings about a relaxation that most people are not able to achieve even through sleep.  These classes are usually done in the 7pm time slot to allow for maximum relaxation. Be sure to bring your eye pillow for the Yoga Nidra part for blissful relaxation!

relaxation-frontThis 90-minute class will relax you and wash away stress from your day. Suitable for all levels, this Restorative Yoga class will bring ultimate relaxation as we get into supported poses on the mat using blankets and bolsters. This is an especially appropriate class for those who suffer from fibromyalgia, arthritis, and multiple sclerosis as it is gentle. Be sure to arrive no less than 15-minutes early to get set up and bring your eye pillow to class for ultimate relaxation (we also sell some at the studio).

This 75-minute slow-paced class is composed of poses held up to 5 minutes. Beginning with the grounding practice of pranayama (controlled breathing), we set the pace breathwise for a class of poses that are held low and closer to the mat. These poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—so as to increase flexibility and circulation.

This practice is very meditative and helps the practitioner to experience a deep and fulfilling practice. However, don’t be fooled into thinking it won’t do much: this class is usually the equivalent of 2-3 regular Yoga Pranala classes bundled into one.
