Through my Holistic Medical Arts practice I offer private Yoga instruction, traditional Chinese acupuncture and herbal medicine, Reiki treatments & workshops, Rosen Method bodywork, Chi Nei Tsang, nutritional consultation and ionic footbaths.
My yoga sessions have an Iyengar base, incorporating yin (gentle) as well as more yang (dynamic) styles into a practice designed to strengthen as well as lengthen and stretch the body. Music and breathwork are often brought in to encourage movement and physical opening within the poses. Students experience their bodies more fully and relax, calm, and center their minds. Sessions are adjusted to fit individual needs, and beginners are welcome.
Please see my website www.reikiyoga.com for more information.

Founded in 1978, The Yoga Room is dedicated to the practice of hatha yoga as taught by B.K.S. Iyengar, author of Light on Yoga and Light on Pranayama. As a multi-generational community, we are concerned with encouraging proper alignment in the poses, maintaining a balance between strength and flexibility, and making yoga available to people of all ages and abilities.
With our emphasis on personalized practice, we offer alternatives for almost anyone, from those dealing with health issues and disabilities, to ongoing students looking for Advanced Studies at the 500 hour level.
Scott and Chandra work together and individually, offering hatha yoga retreats, workshops, and classes that integrate their studies of Yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda and Buddhism.
Scott offers either gentle or challenging yoga practices, which accommodate the differing levels of strength, endurance, and goals of students. Apart from building strength and flexibility, Scott's teaching of the asanas (postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises) is ideal for preparing the body and mind for meditation. Chandra then guides meditations for calming and sharpening the mind and opening the heart to compassion for oneself and others. This combined approach provides fitness, long-lasting stress reduction, mental clarity, and the conditions for spiritual growth and awakening to insight.

Mark's passion for practicing yoga comes from a deeply seeded desire for freedom. His classes emphasize alignment and the breath, as he draws from his interest in Asana, Pranayama, Anatomy, Philosophy, and Yoga History.
Wonderful classes in the heart of north Berkeley. I've been teaching yoga and meditation since 1989 and began studying them at the age of 14.
In 1991, I received my Teacher Training certificate from The Yoga Room in Berkeley and was certified as a Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist. Throughout 2002, I wrote the Beginners Column in Yoga Journal, and prior to that I published feature articles on the chakras and "Yoga for Good Digestion." I've also appeared in three Yoga Journal calendars.
I offer privates, building a home practice, special workshops, and Somatic Therapy. I love teaching students of all levels.

Gretchen Wobrock was certified as a yoga teacher through Kriplau and a yoga therapist through Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. She teaches 3-4 classes a week, utilizing the principles of hatha yoga to find the authentic impulse and movement in the body. Her classes focus deeply on the relationship between breath, body and spirit and include both active and restorative poses.
Her private yoga and therapy sessions take this work to another level, allowing the client to look closely at the mind/body experience and the potential for healing and transformation.
