Class Schedule, Description, and Fees
January 1, 2018, marked the 20th anniversary of directing a Yoga studio in Erie! It all started with free classes I began offering in my living room in 1984. We continue to integrate classical principles with current scientific research to provide an effective and sustainable mind, body and spirit practice for all phases of life.
The goal of traditional yoga is to become liberated from the mind-body concept or ego and experience the true Self – free of fear and anxiety. We look forward to supporting you on this journey!
We are personal and attentive. Our studio offers a boutique setting to support your self-growth through courses with an emphasis on safety. Over 1,000 hours of training and over 40 years of experience inform my classes and private lessons. Feel the Difference Experience Makes! I have served on the Yoga Alliance advisory committee for recommending standards for teachers and schools. Our classes and my trainings will meet the highest standards of safety and instruction!
In our classes, you will experience a meditative approach to the postures within the context of Ayurvedic and Mindfulness principles. You will be supported in accepting your body the way it is yet be encouraged to challenge your perceived limitations so you can experience yourself perhaps in a new, exciting and more fulfilling way.
All classes awaken the essence of who you are: peace, love, and joy!
If you’re looking to attend our special events and workshops, you can find our schedule and descriptions here.

Gentle Beginners, Restorative and Mindfulness Yoga
The yoga of non-doing, restorative yoga, focuses on effortlessness and ease. When the body is fully supported with bolsters and blankets, it releases deeply held tensions. It is for any student who is not pregnant and without serious back conditions like spondylolistheses, spondylolysis or diagnosed disc disease. It can be excellent for students recovering from injuries and managing chronic diseases.

Slow Flow for Beginners and Beyond (Hatha 1 and 2)

Vigorous Vinyasa (Hatha 2-3)
Yoga For Back Pain
Learn ways to manage, reduce and possibly end your pain. You will practice a routine that I have used successfully in hundreds of private lessons and group classes for those suffering from kyphosis, lordosis, musculoskeletal pain, bulging discs, sacroiliac joint misalignment, piriformis caused mild sciatica, and after back surgery (with physician approval). Please let me know what your condition is when you register. However, for chronic conditions, see your physician to rule out infections, cancer, spinal fractures (osteoporosis) and neurological causes. Please bring a permission slip from your health care provider.
