What is a Karma Community Class?

Many temples in India bear the inscription “be good, do good.” Zen Studios feels strongly in giving back to our community. The 10am class on the last Saturday of each month will be dedicated to doing just that…giving back and paying forward. This class is donation based; however, donating is completely optional. The teachers will be leading the class gratis and all of the donation collected will be given to the charity of the month. 1 hr. Open to all levels. If you would like your charity considered as a recipient for the karma class, please e-mail lisa@zengardenyoga.com.

 

What is the YogaWall?

Based on the Iyengar ropes system, the great YogaWall is a modern day evolution to your yoga practice. By utilizing bars and straps/ropes of various length and configurations, we can bring traction to our poses. This addition of traction allows us to go places in our poses that we never thought possible. *class size limited to 15. Pre-registration is strongly recommended.*
