Welcome to Kokoro Yoga

I love the quote by Martin Buber: "All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware," that really sums up my recent business move. Though I've been so blessed with the ability to teach yoga full time, deep down I had a hunch that this path would take a positive turn somewhere along the line. It just happened a little sooner than I had expected! I just signed a lease and am moving to a space that I'll finally be able to make my own. It's stunning, nestled within what I feel to be the most happening block on Cornwall Ave.! The sense of spaciousness and elegance I felt the first time I entered it gave me the idea of calling it "Inspire Studio." I'm so excited for this opportunity to build a community of independent teachers, all bringing inspiration to their students and to our town at large. Although I'm still doing business as Kokoro Yoga and all the other teachers will still have their own business names, we'll be doing it together all at one 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. 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 has something to offer you!

Namaste and Sat Nam,

Spring Equinox Kundalini Yoga & Double Gong Extended Relaxation!!

Taught by: Ruby Koa and Cody Harder
When: Friday March 18th, 7:30-9:15 pm

Description: Though March 19th is technically the spring equinox, come out and join us the Friday night before to open your body, clear your energy, and clarify your intentions with kundalini yoga. Live instrumental music during the yoga part of the evening will help you to focus while the 30 plus minute singing bowl and double gong bath will allow you to fully let go and expand your being! The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases us from the torrent of thoughts our mind continuously generates and stimulates our glandular system to a higher frequency of functioning. 

Doors open at 7:10 (There’s a class that ends at 6:45 pm) and tea & snacks will be available before and after.

Price: $15 advance, $20 at the door, $5 off for Students
