What is Yoga

Yoga is a conscious union of the body, breath and mind to cultivate physical and mental wellness. Yoga is not meant to detract from any personal belief system, but rather to enhance that individual sense of self in connection with others.

Should I eat before Yoga Class?

It is best not to eat at least 2-3 hours before practicing yoga. If you need a light snack, try nuts, seeds, or dried fruit. Avoid anything spicey, oily, or acidic.

Can anybody practice yoga?

The short answer is yes! However, the reality is that not every yoga practice is appropriate for every person. Please read the descriptions for each class before signing up. Also, please note that instructors are very mindful about addressing any physical limitations you might have in a particular class. Instructors will also help advise you as to what classes may be appropriate for your skill/interest level.

Yoga Classes

Our yoga classes are designed to create an environment for healing and growth.  Yoga at its foundation is about self-care and that includes the body, mind and spirit.  Taking care of ourselves in one aspect of our life can create a ripple effect that can radiate throughout other aspects of our lives.  Taking time to still the mind, engage the spirit and strengthen the body allows all systems of the body to work more efficiently and teaches breathing and meditation techniques to use in everyday life.  Yoga doesn’t have to be about pushing the body into complicated poses, it’s about starting where you are, accepting yourself and doing what you can. 


Yoga encourages a body-mind-sprit connection that can help create a homeostasis in life. Sometimes our lives can leave us feeling depleted, weak and tired. Yoga can help to “fill the well” and leave us rejuvenated.   By giving to ourselves we have more to give to our loved ones, our careers, our life’s passion.  Yoga can be whatever we make it.  Do you want to calm the mind and restore the body in stillness? Want to move, sweat and work hard? If you are breathing and practicing mindful self-care, you’re doing yoga and we have a class to fit your needs. 

Please register online. Due to limited space in the yoga room, individuals who have signed up online will be given priority.

Classes will be cancelled based on the Allendale Public School Closings for morning classes. Evening Classes Check Website or MindBody Link after 4:00pm. Weekend Classes check website or MindBody for updates 2 hours prior to class.
