Why This Yogi Starting Lifting Weights

Sep 29th

I'll be honest, I was incredibly resistant to lifting weights. I'm a yogi. And if you ask most yogis, yoga is the miracle modality; there's no need to supplement the practice.

Over the years we have grown from a small smattering of classes into a diverse, authentic and dedicated sangha. Honroing that evolution, we have decided to not only re-name our studio, but to also establish a specific mission as our bedrock.
