Find Lasting Peace
Through Yoga

Classical yoga provides spiritual inspiration and answers life’s deepest questions. Through classes, courses, workshops, cultural programs and outreach, we offer a variety of holistic practices for all ages, not limited by physical ability. These include physical postures, breathing techniques, proper diet, conscious relaxation, chanting  and meditation.

• Ancient wisdom passed directly through a lineage

• Fearless inquiry into the nature of the mind and emotions

• Support for all aspects of a balanced lifestyle and healthy relationships




We are 100% volunteer-run. Your donations allow us to reach an expanding community—continuing to offer healthy lifestyle choices and guidance toward the inner path to peace. We welcome financial or in-kind donations toward the completion of our renovations or general upkeep.
