Welcome to the Yoga Studio, Downtown

Located in Downtown Utica in Macomb County


Join our Facebook Group for Online Yoga Instruction

Stay connected during the Coronavirus closure!

Various Teachers will be posting videos of guided meditations, instruction on yoga philosophy, abbreviated classes, sequences, flows, and poses.

If you are interested in donating to teachers who are contributing videos, there are three options in our online store.

All donations will go directly to the teachers to thank them for all they do!

To find the Group, go to your Facebook Profile and type “the yoga studio downtown community” into the search bar. Our group should appear in a drop down menu. This group is open to everyone, but members must be approved and must agree to the group’s rules.

I hope to see you there! Message or email me with any problems!

Macomb County Yoga Studio

Our Mission

Our yoga studio exists to share the many benefits of Yoga through an authentic lineage based on the teachings in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra.

We pride ourselves on the use of the original Sanskrit language, guided breath and poses which affect our ability to foster self-acceptance, peace, good health and success in everyday life.

From our Newsletter

This week I’ve been thinking about how we overcome life’s obstacles. We know that so much of our suffering is caused by “the craving mind.”
How much of our energy is spent on chasing after what we don’t have?
How often are we pushing away or resisting something we do have?
The ancient yogis believed that all suffering would end if we could finally still that craving mind; they considered this a bliss state.
This is why we meditate in our yoga practices. We can achieve brief moments of stillness and acceptance and get a tiny taste of bliss.
It’s my hope that you are able to use what you learn in our studio to not only become physically healthier, but to experience the benefits of yoga as a mental practice as well.

Wishing you health, happiness, and freedom from suffering,
