When I opened The Yoga Room in October, 2010, I wanted to create a yoga studio that welcomed all kinds of people, but especially the people who ordinarily would never step foot in a yoga studio. The benefits of yoga are so wide-ranging – from stress management to improving strength and flexibility to improving body image to improving mental focus. I wanted to make these kinds of benefits available to Every Body who needs them.
Especially close to my heart is making The Yoga Room inviting for people with bigger bodies. People often think of the typical yogi as a thin young person who can fold themself into a pretzel. At The Yoga Room, we aim to offer the benefits of yoga to REGULAR PEOPLE, regardless of the size, age, or condition of their body.
The amazing thing about yoga is that it is COMPLETELY ADAPTABLE and it can meet each practitioner exactly where they are, physically, mentally, and energetically, on any given day. Often times people tell me, “I can’t practice yoga – I’m not flexible.” I tell these people that that’s WHY we come to yoga practice – to BECOME more flexible.
The teachers at The Yoga Room are kind, friendly, and approachable. We are highly trained and experienced, and safety is our first priority. Our approach is compassionate and non-judging, and we optimize the practice for each INDIVIDUAL by discreetly offering options and modifications throughout each class.
Our yoga teaching is straightforward and helps people of all levels and abilities breathe, move their bodies, and enjoy numerous benefits. We also offer workshops and events on specific topics including health, wellness, meditation, different styles of yoga, and yoga philosophy.
Please browse around our site and stop by the studio to check out a class any time. And please feel free to call me or send me an email if you have any questions. We look forward to meeting you!
