Our studio offers a rustic retreat, ideal for yoga and movement practice. The intimate space and limited class size naturally provides a more individualized experience.

The building is marked, with a sign (pictured). For driving directions please visit our maps & directions page or contact us. First time students are encouraged to read the FAQs section as well.

 

THREE SEASONS OF YOGA

A joy and challenge of yoga class in our reappointed space is embracing the ability to be adaptable to weather. Our studio space heats and cools with the seasons. Winter classes have proven at times too cold, Spring and Fall are quite nice. Summer classes can be warm or even hot-- As farmers, we have lovingly embraced the spirit of seasonality in our Three Seasons of Yoga Series. Join us on the farm for Spring, Summer and Fall classes.

Our Three Seasons of Yoga Series is shaped by the season and also by our students. Our Three Seasons classes are welcoming for both beginning and more advanced students. These inclusive community classes focuses on "waking up" the entire body-- strengthening core, increasing flexibility and releasing stress while working to cultivate a deeper connection to the breath and self. Our Three Seasons classes seeks to provide students with an opportunity to develop increased body awareness, which in turn promotes better alignment, balance and flow. Elements of Vinyasa Yoga (flowing movements with breath) and Hatha Yoga (holding poses with breath) are dynamically combined in each class.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When you arrive in advance you'll have plenty of time to complete a student waiver and advise the instructor about any injuries or special needs you may have. Plan to arrive on an empty or mostly empty stomach, ideally allowing 1 to 2 hours to pass between consuming a meal and coming to class.  Being hydrated and staying hydrated is also recommended.

A: Plan to wear clothing that is comfortable and allows for unrestricted movement. Since we are in a rustic space and seasonal variances do change the temperature notably it is advised that you dress weather appropriate and utilize layers so you can best regulate your own body temperature.
