“Life changing, pure and simple. This certification was so much more than just ‘learning how to teach yoga’. Beyond being given an invaluable training experience, I found a loving, supportive and often times hilarious community of lifelong friends. I did the training to become a yoga teacher, but beyond that I found a path to a rich and rewarding personal practice. ”
-Joe D.

“I would enthusiastically recommend the now:yoga teacher training to anyone interested in deepening their yoga practice or embarking on a teaching career. I started off unsure if I wanted to teach, but after completing the 200 hour course I felt encouraged and confident to pass on the gift of yoga to others and have been teaching ever since. I liked the one (intense!) weekend per month format because it meant minimal time away from my family plus I had a whole month to process and absorb the material. I was excited to go to every session and amazed at how much information we covered on the physical practice, the philosophical and spiritual roots of yoga, and the nuts and bolts of teaching. My notebook is full and will serve me for many years. Together Edward, Frank and Joe brought abundant experience, sensitivity, humor and warmth to the training while creating a fun, non-judgmental space to explore and experiment. Edward, Frank and Joe have a profoundly serious dedication to the craft of teaching yoga and I am forever grateful for their time with us.”

Thank YOU to so many of you for all of your support during these challenging times.
We are excited to welcome you back to the studio and we want to make sure that we are ready to ensure your safety, yet provide a relaxing and stress free environment.

Thanks to all that have been live streaming our classes for the past several weeks.
Our Virtual Studio is up and running on ZOOM!
We are excited to be offering classes on our new online platform and we will continue to offer the virtual classes as well as we re-open.

We are eagerly planning for your safe return. We want to ensure your well-being and have all the steps in place before we proceed. As you know, phase 1 for re-opening is rolling out June 1.

Our plan for June is to re-open June 15 with a reduced schedule, safety precautions in place and limitations on the number of people in classes.

In studio classes will be limited to five people. We will require masks to check in and in the lobby and ask that you keep 6 feet spacing between you and other clients for optimal social distancing. We will require daily temperatures for staff and ask that you sign a waiver agreeing that you are not ill or running a fever and that to the best of your knowledge you have not been exposed to COVID-19.

You can sign up for in studio classes online through our scheduling platform mindbodyonline for contactless sign in and payment. We ask that you clean your hands when you enter the studio and there will be hand sanitizer stations for your use in the studio.

Please bring your own mat. In the studio space during classes mats will be spaced 6 feet apart. Once you are on your mat and 6 feet apart from others, masks will be optional during the classes. There will be no mat rentals, no props and no hands on adjustments in class. We will be wiping down high contact points such as handles frequently with disinfectant wipes and more frequently cleaning the studio, lobby and bathrooms. We will use our second door as an exit following class to ensure less social contact.

We understand that some of you may not be ready to return to the studio. The recommendation is for older individuals and those who are immune compromised to continue to shelter in place. We plan to continue to live stream classes as we transition to small in-studio classes and we are developing an online library that you will have access to as well.
