Welcome hOMe.


  Mindful Movement is a practice dedicated to the beautiful teachings of Yoga. 

  During an hour class, we will explore the body physically, mentally, and spiritually, in hopes of stripping away some of the garbage that life throws at us.  So often, we go throughout our day ignoring our breath, what we put into our bodies, and what kind of activity our bodies receive.  Yoga teaches us to be mindful in all of the relationships in which we participate.  This deeper understanding of the relationships we have with God, the universe, ourselves, food, our breath, physical activity, the ones we love, stress...helps us to live a healthy, happy life.  

  We offer classes for every body.  Therapeutic classes are perfect for those who are newer to the practice, or who would benefit from a slower, more grounding practice. In these classes, we work more on mindfulness, alignment, breathing, and anatomy. Athletic classes are perfect for those who are already practicing yoga or another modality of movement (ex. daily walking, running, cross-fit, jiu jitsu, gymnastics). In these classes, we incorporate stronger asanas including inversions, deep backbends, and arm balances.  We also weave in salutations, vinyasas, mantra, pranayama, and philosophy.  Athletic classes are more physically challenging, and not recommended for those who suffer from an injury.  Our class descriptions can be found here.

  Come check out a class.  The first one is on us. 

  Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to class.  Each class starts at the time designated on our schedule. As a gesture of respect to your teacher and the studio, please be sure to arrive on time. Once class has begun, participants will not be permitted to join the class.  Thank you for understanding.
