Yoga can be as much or as little as you want it to be. For some it is purely a physical pursuit, keeping the body toned, strong and flexible. For others, yoga becomes more of a mindset and a way of living. Whatever your reason for practicing, or your level of experiencewe welcome you to Being Yoga.Everyone can practice yoga.
Regardless of age, experience, or level of flexibility – we can all benefit from yoga if we maintain “mental flexibility”…patience. The atmosphere at Being Yoga is friendly, supportive and attitude-free. We offer a variety of active and meditative yoga classes to help bring balance to your day.
Yoga, like life, is about finding bliss and serenity in the moment. So come on in, relax and learn to ‘be’ your yoga.
"I love the way bikram yoga has quickly toned my body and how it has relieved my back pain."
This classical style hatha yoga class systematically works the entire body, stretching muscles, building foundational strength, detoxing internal organs, stimulating the glandular systems, and challenging the cardiovascular system. This 90 minute class is appropriate for beginners and more experienced students alike. It is truly a complete mind-body work-out. Your focus will improve, your mind will become clear, your body will detox and you will feel as if you are floating out of class.

"The silent class helps me reliably achieve stillness."
Turn inward, listen to your breath, make your class a moving meditation, and explore a group practice a whole new way. Our silent classes move through the Bikram Yoga series to background music without dialogue from the teacher. Best for students who have taken a minimum of ten Bikram Yoga classes.
Kriya Yoga is considered the practical way to purify the body, subtle coverings of the mind, and the mind itself. Kriya Yoga is more than just meditation procedure, it includes the entire range of philosophy and procedure which makes possible the enlightenment experience.
Power Yoga is a challenging, flowing yoga class taught in a heated room with a focus on stability, stamina, freedom and FUN! The poses are simple and easy to learn with room to vary and elaborate as students progress.
There’s no doubt about it, a class of challenging yoga is good, but sometimes it’s good to go GENTLE. And now Being Yoga is giving you that option. We offer a non-heated Gentle Yoga class designed to help students slowly stretch tight muscles and loosen stiff joints. This class is ideal for anyone wanting to work on stress-release, flexibility and balance ~ gradually and comfortably. Students of Gentle Yoga will ease into a variety of Hatha yoga postures, breath work and focused relaxation ~ and come out feeling great!
"Yin soothes my soul."
A gentle & relaxing 1 Hour class that works deeply into muscles and connective tissues through extended holds of postures. It is the perfect class for meditators & those who lack flexibility because we will be working deeply into the body. The focus is less on fitness and more on restoration, de-stressing, & relaxation.Most forms of Yoga practiced in the U.S. are Yang; they emphasize muscular movement, contraction, and stabilization (all of which are important). Yin Yoga targets the connective tissue especially in the hips, pelvis and lower spine, and emphasizes deep tissue opening and restoration. It is a perfect cross train with the other more vigorous styles of yoga. Not heated. No prior experience necessary.
