What we're about

Our Mission: To make Yoga accessible to all! No paid subscriptions or membership dues, just you, your mat and a bottle of water! We do accept donations as well as yoga equipment, like mats straps or blocks, so that we may have extras available for classes. We hope to make everyone comfortable and safe within their skill level and ability to do yoga. No one is required to do or to try any pose, and everyone is expected to practice safety and to stay within their own physical limits. The benefits from practicing yoga do not require competition or perfection. The benefits from practicing yoga come from maintaining and enhancing your body's ability to move, to stay flexible, and to experience the free flow of energy within. Namaste.
