Welcome to Kokoro Yoga

My name is Ruby Koa and I’ve been teaching yoga in Bellingham since 2009.  I’ve been on quite a journey since then, having taught in a few different locations and finally am blessed to have my own space.  Though Kokoro Yoga itself is a one teacher operation, and quite a small one at that, a variety of class styles are offered including various forms of Vinyasa Flow, Gentle Flow, and Kundalini Yoga.  As the Japanese word, "kokoro" (it means heart/mind, center/essence) suggests, my intention always is to teach from my heart, with the emphasis of accommodating you wherever you're at. I also aim to cultivate a sense of community and camaraderie in each class, meaning you can look forward to tea (and sometimes snacks) being served after most classes. I also offer regular Women’s Full Moon circles and events to celebrate the solstices and equinoxes such as Kundalini Yoga and Double Gong Relaxations. So whether you're looking to improve your fitness and flexibility, deepen your awareness of breath, body, and spirit, or just a chance to relax and stretch out, at least one of these classes or events has something to offer you!

Be aware that even though I do business as Kokoro Yoga, my classes are located at the space that my husband Zeck and I manage, "Inspire Studio."  It’s a community of independent teachers, all bringing inspiration to their students and to our town at large.  Because I rent space to the other teachers vs. hire them, each of the teachers have their own pricing and operate as their own business owner, thus we’re unable to offer class passes or memberships that apply to everyone’s classes.
