AMAZING!!!!! First of all, Jeff's studio is amazing. Its so peaceful and wide open. Jeff was such an amazing instructor; it was my first time doing yoga and he did not make anyone feel inferior or uncomfortable. I was doing moves that I never thought that I could do. After the class ended I felt so energetic and ready to tackle the world. Just AWESOME! I can tell Jeff is such an authentic instructor: he does yoga because it is his passion, and he is very humble and always open to suggestions. He makes an effort to know your name and know a little about you. I will definitley be going back!

If you're looking for the perfect balance between the physical and spiritual practice of yoga, this is the studio for you. The instructors are amazing and do an incredible job of adjusting poses in accordance with the way the class feels as a whole. Classes encompass centering, warm up, asana sequences, cool down, and well guided Savasana. I leave feeling revitalized, joyful and relaxed. Beautiful and impressively lead sessions Jeffrey and Mike. Namaste!
Mixed Level Asana
M - W - F 9am Instructor: Jeffry Farrell. with occasional guest instructors
Sat 9:30am Instructor: Jeffry Farrell, with occasional guest instructors
Mixed Level sessions observe a warm-up, frequently incorporating a modified series of sun salutations, and then work into postures for strengthening and opening the back, stabilizing the shoulders, opening and stabilizing the hips.
We make observations of breath, body and mind throughout. The sequencing is progressive and non-competitive. We address needs as they arise and explore a variety of postures, mudras, bandhas, and breath. Every session moves toward a thematic unity. We never script a session. We aim for zero injury.
Sessions close with a random brief passage of a yogic text read aloud. We sit for an energizing breath practice.
If you can walk for 75 minutes without stopping and you have no specific injuries or serious conditions, then you could be confident of starting.
Stretch, Strengthen, & Relax Yoga
M - W 6:15pm Instructor: Mike Mirabal
Stretch, Strengthen, & Relax sessions build on a foundation of breath, body, and awakened attention, for the purpose of using the yoga as a tool for daily living in strength, balance, enhanced awareness and relaxation. These practices will challenge our cultural expectations about yoga and exercise. The sessions will be small, personal, and progressive based in practices of Krishnamacharya's lineage, in practices of the Bihar School of India, and in methods shared by Kumar Pallana.
Advanced practitioners encouraged. Raw beginners welcomed. All beginners' minds renewed and supported.

Iyengar style focuses on correct bodily alignment and use of breath to support active and passive postures, allowing the body and mind to function at their best potential.

Gentle Yoga is just like it sounds. From a Hatha Yoga tradition, Mara adds experiential body awareness with the help ofprops to help bring the body into a state of relaxation and alignment.
Good for total beginners, as well as those experienced. Good for anyone wanting a tune-up, a slower practice which can cultivate inner radiance and well-being.
