Welcome

to

The Yoga Studio Downtown

We are beginning to roll out studio small group and private classes. You can view our in-studio policies and safety protocols here.

Outdoor classes will be held at Grant Park in Utica. We are meeting either behind the basketball courts, or in the grassy area along Hahn Street. Preregistration on our bookings site or call ahead is preferred. However, for outdoor yoga, students may drop in. If you do not have an active account, we will need a name, email address, and method of payment-Cash or Credit Card, but card swiping is unavailable. You will also need to sign a waiver if you have not attended with us yet this year. Virtual classes continue as well.

From our Newsletter

We are collectively experiencing a time of feeling constrained.
Maybe we feel it as anxiety, irritability, and frustration. Or perhaps we simply grieve the loss of the way things were. All of these are considered “constricting” emotions. They don’t inspire us to reach out. There’s a sense of shrinking away, feeling small.
What if there were a way to cultivate the opposite of these constricting emotions? And instead to experience wonder, awe, joy, love, and connection?
These “expansive” emotions sometimes have to be sought out and intentionally constructed. As yogis, we know the power of setting an intention and that we can indeed make meaningful changes inside and out.
So, in your meditation practice, perhaps you pay close attention to your inhale breaths and connect with that feeling of fullness as the abdomen expands and lifts.
Or, in your yoga practice, each time you rise or stretch outward, you consider what you are reaching toward and remind yourself to take up space.
And then you can mindfully take all you’ve cultivated with you into the world.
Wishing you health, happiness, and freedom from suffering,
Cori

Join our Facebook Group

This Group was created in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic in March of 2020. We have always tried to foster a sense of community through our yoga studio, and have been grateful for the opportunity to stay connected through the Group, though we have had to remain physically apart.

The generosity of our talented teachers has allowed us to continue to share the benefits of yoga through Facebook Live classes and inspiring messages. Our members support the teachers directly through donations.
