Garden Street School is a YOga Alliance registered School at the 200 and 500 hour level. We teach a style of Yoga
which stabilizes, strengthens and moves body, mind and heart. Our Yoga method: •Is an alignment based method which includes held poses, core strengthening and skillful flow (vinyasa) •Is grounded in a practical and life affirming Yoga philosophy •Places an emphasis on connecting with the “good company” of other Yogins - and building and sustaining an ongoing community of practice.
~~~~ Garden Street Yoga was founded in 2001 by Karen Sprute-Francovich as a simple and wholehearted outgrowth of her love and gratitude for the practice of Yoga. She has continued to cultivate Garden Street from a deep ground of experience which includes 40 years of practicing and teaching Yoga in the Krishnamacharya lineage – first in the Iyengar method and later as a certified Anusara teacher.
The Weekly Classes at Garden Street cover a broad spectrum of needs and range from absolute beginner classes, to classes for seniors, to “Big Pose” classes, to dynamic sweaty flowing practices, to gentle subtle work with the inner body, to classes in seated meditation. We are adamant that one does not have to be strong or flexible to begin Yoga. The practice of Yoga will, over time, create strength and flexibility, integrate posture and open your heart for radiant health.
We know you’ll feel welcomed to our studio, and that you’ll have a wonderful yoga experience under the guidance of our excellent teachers.
