Whatever your age or body type, we can guide you into poses to help you feel relaxed, revitalized, and uplifted. (For more, see What is Ananda Yoga?)

“Wow! Powerful yoga sessions. I finally understood the spirituality behind hatha yoga-I also feel ready to start a regular practice of yoga and meditation.”

“Exceeded my expectations once again! The atmosphere in class was supportive, encouraging, and gentle. I have no soreness, and feel loose, open, and grounded.”
