Thefocusofthistrainingison deepening your experience as a yoga practitioner while supporting & exploringyour calling tosharethebenefitsofyogawithothers. One or two weekend days per month from March 31-October 8, 2018, depending on your personal goals.
We are open 364 days a year, and we offer classes 7 days a week.
We are devoted and dedicated to supporting your yoga journey, whether it's your first class, you've been off your mat for awhile, or you've been practicing for years.
We offer 20+ opportunities each week for you to begin or deepen your practice in our public yoga classes, workshops, and private yoga class series.
Our intention is to meet each yoga practitioner where they are and facilitate transformation through our vinyasa flow, hatha, yin, gentle, and restorative yoga classes.
Our pricing and schedule are set up to make it easy for you to get to your mat on a regular basis.
We are convenient to yoga practitioners who live or work in Felton, Ben Lomond, Bonny Doon, Boulder Creek, and other parts of the Santa Cruz Mountains. There are also students who practice at our studio who come from Santa Cruz and Scott's Valley, especially for our yoga workshops and special events.
All are welcome, but we have a particular interest in people who may feel uncomfortable or intimidated to go to a yoga studio - for whatever reason. We don't care what you wear, and we believe that yogis come in all shapes, ages, and levels of experience.
Our mission is to create a yoga studio where everyone can be at ease.
"The study of yoga is not about mastering a posture, it is about using posture to understand and transform yourself."

How do we keep our hearts open and compassion alive without sacrificing our own well-being?
How can we take a stand against ignorance and injustice without becoming entangled in anger and frustration?
How do we become courageous participants in this current wave of awakened feminine power in a balanced, healthy way?
This yoga experience is designed to explore these questions, bringing our whole selves to this important inquiry. We will use meditation, focused breath work, physical yoga postures, guided self-inquiry, group reflection and witnessing, and restorative yoga practices to delve deeply into this topic.
The physical part of our practice will include postures to open the heart and strengthen the back and core, and each participant will be given a copy of the sequence we use to incorporate into her home practice.
Participants should wear comfortable, loose, clothing. Please bring water and a journal. This workshop is open to all women, and no prior yoga or meditation experience is necessary.
