In Discovery Yoga classes you get great exercise and more. In addition to our focus on physical and mental practices that build health, reduce stress and retard the aging process, we provide the resources, support and environment for you to increase your capacity for self-discovery and attunement. Coming together with like-minded people in the spirit of Yoga creates a group energy that allows for deeper absorption into the practice. Each class is a complete experience, including centering, warm-ups (pratapana), yoga postures (asana), yogic breathing (pranayama), relaxation (yoga nidra) and integration.


The training program below, comprised of one 90-minute class per week, gives you the tools you need to attend practice classes with knowledge, experience and confidence.
