Yoga Classes at Heartwood

Heartwood offers a variety of yoga classes for the general public, each class designed for bigger and quieter yoga experiences where people can enjoy convening with nature and retreating from life's stresses in a relaxed, beautiful environment. Our classes not only provide excellence in theory and form, (thanks to a teaching staff comprised of only experienced RYT-500 certified teachers with special training in yoga therapy, Reiki and other healing mediums) but the beauty of the space, the gorgeous natural environment, and the resources of a meditation garden, walking labyrinth and other mindful spaces provide opportunity for a deeply introspective and expansive yoga experience. 

For up to one hour after class at Heartwood Retreat Center, students are invited to hang out to browse our yoga library, relax in our welcoming yoga center or to visit the Chakra meditation garden with a cup of tea or a journal, a wonderful way to extend the yoga experience to include much deserved personal time for reflection, balance, and to feel deeply refreshed, inspired and renewed. We want your yoga experience to go beyond the physical, by encouraging you to embrace yoga beyond the hour on the mat, so your practice will serve you in deeper ways.The gates open one half hour before class.
