What we’re about


My name is Jen I'm the owner of a new business in Pasadena called Archetype Yoga. Located in the heart of the Pasadena's theater district we offer Katonah Yoga classes, yoga retreats, private lessons.

We are starting this Meetup because we offer lots of fun events in addition to yoga classes. This meet up is for people looking for a fun and inclusive yoga community. Archetype Yoga offers monthly events, workshops, and trainings.

The type of yoga we do is called Katonah, it's a new style that hails from New York.

In Katonah Yoga we focus on "the why" behind the pose. Instead of struggling to get into a pose students are taught the technique of the pose. This new type of thought based yoga is great for people of all ages and stages in their yoga journey.
