What is Gentle Yoga?

Transformation with ease, grace, and awareness is how we interpret gentle here at The School of Gentle Yoga. Whether in a vinyasa flow, matching breath with movement, or in a restful restorative pose where you move away from the body and breath into the stillness, gentle is a way of being with yourself that gives you access to your greatest depths – to your truest Self.

Our Mission

It is our purpose to train and teach in a way that brings Harmony to the world,

one body, breath, and mind at a time.
