There is a lot of styles of yoga around the world (power,Buti, Hatha, Vinyasa, Iyengar, Jivamukti, Hot, Yin, Bikram, chair & ying-yang) and they are all amazing in their own way and we are all different, that is why we love to have a multidisciplinary yoga schedule with different educators.
At the yoga barn, we focus our selves on keeping yoga accessible, taking care of our mind-body, and learning how to transition in a safe way for everyone in all classes. We offer modifications and adjustments in the different asanas (postures) to our students, we are all different and yoga can be personalized to everybody type, that is the greatest thing about having a certified yoga instructor in the room, even nowadays with our zoom modality *online yoga and OUTDOOR YOGA CLASSES.
We have to remind you that “Yoga is about following the inner voice of your body and learning to respect it and honor it” In the end, we only have 1 body! be patient with it your practice since we all move in a different way and everyone’s physical complexion is not the same.

HONEY FLOW YOGA CLASS (Tuesday’s with Tanya Grace)
This class as the name can describe it is a slow-motion flow yoga class, we can compare it to a moving meditation. We work on strengthening our bodies by moving consciously and paying closer attention to our breath. We incorporate different holistic practices creating a mystic atmosphere at the studio.
The intention in restorative practice is to deeply relax the central nervous system, with the help of various props, that are used to support the body 100% so the students can hold poses for longer, allowing you to open your body through passive stretching. Restorative classes are very relaxing and are a good complement to more active practices. It is recommended to wear warm comfortable clothing since you often cool down when relaxing. Poses are held for an extended period, often up to ten to twenty minutes. It is a therapeutic style of practice that leaves you feeling safe, nurtured, open, and refreshed. (very slow pace recommended to students that had some injuries in their body in the past to recover flexibility)
YOGA FIT & SCULPT
Targets all muscle groups, combining hand weights with yoga poses. Strengthening, toning, fun & energizing yet still carries the mindful, relaxation of yoga to bring you back to a restful mind. Beginners welcome.
