We offer a wide variety of yoga styles with extensively-trained full-time yoga teachers. We treat each yoga class
as a beautiful bouquet of people. This is not a hobby for us, but a profession. Our teachers have many years of experience at introducing new people to yoga and guiding them through a logical progression. Your safety is a priority. The Yoga Place opened 17 years ago and offers 14 classes weekly in yoga, but also has Tai Chi, Pilates (with Dr. Kappel), belly dancing (with Shanrae and Angela), counseling (with Dr. David DeLong) and two massage rooms. We also offer The Yoga Wall with ropes for anti-gravity yoga and many therapeutic applications.
We love to introduce beginners to yoga and have several options for a rewarding start. We help you help yourself. Our interest is your health and wellness and we do this through integrated practice. Integrated yoga practice is not just about fitness, but helps you move towards balance, peace and harmony. Yoga is an inner adventure -- let's explore!
We invite you to engage, awaken and ignite your true nature and your untapped potential.

YOGA IN A CHAIR Yoga in a Chair is designed to allow almost anyone to participate in a very gentle form of Yoga. It works the joints and muscles to increase flexibility, strength, balance, and circulation. It goes beyond typical exercises in that it encourages quiet reflection, proper breathing, and better posture. The benefits of this program are remarkable. Students report reduced blood pressure, faster recovery from injury or surgery, better sleep, increased mobility, improved posture and some students have eve n gained height. Classes are 45 min to an hour long. (Seniors or for those with limited disabilities)
