Yoga is for EVERYONE. Whether you're an athlete looking for a way to prevent injury or a fitness newbie just starting out, there is a class and style of yoga for you. It is not exclusive, it's inclusive... and it's a practice that meets you where you are. No matter the level or style you choose, from the most basic to the most challenging, there are always variations, modifications and options so you are able to work with your body where you are in that exact moment.
It is not about being super flexible or hitting the "perfect" pose. You're not graded, scored, timed or judged. It is a practice. The internal meets the external, and your mind will come up against your body. Meaning every single time you roll out your mat, you're not only doing good for your body, you are also changing your mind.
How you focus, how you react, how you look at yourself. As you grow to appreciate the practice, we hope you grow to appreciate yourself even more. Maybe you are finding relief in your joints or spine, maybe you need the energetic pace of a flow class, or maybe the constant depth and instruction of a basics class is what feels best to your body.
The better question should be why NOT yoga? If you've never tried it, we would love to have you check out the studio and take a few classes. Don't simply take one. Try teachers, try styles, try varying durations.. every single class will feel different.
If you're an experienced yogi, the depth of knowledge our instructors hold will help you find and refine your personal edge. If you're looking to break habits and build strength, try yoga. If you're looking to gain speed, quickness, more lung capacity for your sport, try yoga. Looking to heal from a trauma, gain calm, clarity or a sense of peace, sweating it out on your mat will do wonders for your state of mind.
Yoga is a constantly evolving journey, and it's never over. There are always places to grow, deepen, expand or learn. As your body evolves, so will your time on the mat.
If you're hesitant, reach out! We can talk you through your concerns and offer guidance. We promise you'll be hooked.
To be a change agent in the community. share the gift of yoga. guide you on your path to personal power.
From leading athletes to peak performance to helping those new to fitness, we are so passionate about the practice of yoga.
Erin Murphy (Owner, E-RYT 200, PSA Rated coach)
I love the theory and practice of yoga. For me, the learning never stops. From the keys of alignment to how to best make classes dynamic, my passion + overriding goal is to help each person feel better in their body.
As a lifelong competitive figure skater I came to yoga seeking a new addition to my training but found a way to not only add strength & flexibility, but to repair some of the damage created by a very high impact sport. At first I wasn't sold on yoga - it showed me my imbalances, weaknesses and challenged me more mentally than I ever expected - but very quickly I grew to love the process and the practice. Not only can it strengthen your body, but it immediately impacts your mind. Looking for an edge? Step on your mat consistently and you will see changes.
I have trained in Baptiste style vinyasa yoga, studied yoga for athletes and continued to explore yoga theory. On the ice I am Professional Skaters Association Rated Freestyle coach and have apprenticed under Olympic coach Kori Ade and the Ice Theatre of New York. Questions? Reach out. I would love to hear from you!
