What we're about

What is Earthing Yoga?

Yoga on the bare earth to heal, unite and awaken mind, body and spirit through conscious, loving connection with ourselves, each other and the earth.

This all levels class focuses on building connection with the earth, our bodies and each other through sensory awareness, movement, mindfulness, and gratitude. “Earthing” is a fast-growing movement based on the principle that connection with the Earth is vital to our health. To facilitate this connection, we’ll do yoga on the bare Earth with no mats or props. For those with sensitive skin or who don’t want to be on the grass, we do recommend bringing a mat or beach towel for comfortability.
