Mr. Gibbs credits the success of the studio to considering all members as friends and fellow seekers on our own paths. Also, always being there when classes are scheduled to be held gives students a sense of reliability. Giving students a variety of levels of class with many different class times allows students to vary their attendance with their availability. Utmost to our success is knowledgeable, experienced and caring teachers.

All of the teachers at the studio believe in the Kripalu methodology and believe in Kripalusí goal to develop a healthy and strong body, an open and caring heart, and a peaceful and clear mind. Practioners of Kripalu Yoga use a three stage approach that facilitates this process. The 3 stages of Kripalu Yoga are willful practice, holding the posture and meditation in motion.

Over the years the studio has had wonderful yoga workshops with nationally known teachers such as Ann Greene, Sudha Carolyn Lundeen and Kim Valeri as well as providing Yoga dance and prenatal classes. The studio is providing the community with a variety of yoga education and is looking forward to adding yoga teacher training and announcing other great workshops in the future.
