Is Yoga for you?
Whether you are simply curious about yoga or already a dedicated practitioner, if you are interested in improving your fitness, making your health and well-being a priority and enhancing your quality of life, Asha Yoga is for you. We are an independent yoga studio committed to enriching people’s lives through the practice of yoga. You definitely don’t have to be active or already flexible to start!
What we offer
We offer a variety of styles in heated and non-heated yoga for all levels of experience. Practicing in our pleasantly heated space helps to heal and detoxify the body while allowing you to realign, strengthen and safely stretch. We invite you to try your first two classes (within a seven-day period) on us: our “Foundations” practice is the perfect place to begin.
Beyond becoming stronger, more toned and more flexible, the practice we offer can greatly improve your overall health and quality of life, helping to manage stress and alleviate anxiety. A regular yoga practice at Asha will improve your well-being and help you feel amazing in your body every time you come to your mat.
Gain a yoga practice and at the same time a warm, welcoming and vibrant community, which in-turn increases your motivation and happiness.

108 sun salutations (non-heated) Saturday November 2 from 2:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m.
108 Sun Salutations with Guillermo Genovez (non-heated)
“108” is considered an auspicious number, and it is significant in many ways, appearing in many disciplines from astronomy to yoga.
108 Sun Salutations can be practiced for example at the change of the seasons, at any special occasion or life event to commemorate a time of rebirth and new beginnings.
It is believed that the fire (internal heat) that you build during this practice is cleansing, detoxifying, and gets you more in touch with yourself.
You will surrender to the process, acknowledge what arises emotionally, and in letting go discover your inner drive. You are stronger than you think. You have the power to shift your perspective. You can find grounding amidst any challenge. When you finish, you will surely feel lighter and find meaning in this ancient ritual.
You are invited to participate and do your best, remember you can always rest or modify in any way to make the practice accessible to you.
Space is limited so be sure to reserve ahead of time.
