The Yoga Room is a place where we open our hips, shoulders, and chests, where we cultivate and share the light within each of us. Now is the time to prop up the place that holds us.
It costs about $10,000 a month to keep The Yoga Room open. Every effort is being made to secure loans and grants available to small businesses, but we know this will not be enough.

Memorial Day Weekend Intensive
with Debbie Gilman and Gay White
Saturday & Sunday, May 23-24 | $220
9am–12noon & 2–4pm
This late spring intensive will offer a reflective two-day practice embracing the joy of moving into backbends and twists while also nurturing a deep sense of stillness through pranayama and restorative yoga. In the morning classes we will focus on active practices for dynamic work and the afternoons will be devoted to relaxing and going deeper into breathing and relaxation.
