Everyone can benefit from yoga. Many physiological and psychological benefits continue to be documented by scientific research, especially the relaxation and cardiovascular benefits. With skilled instruction and regular practice, students report increased flexibility, physical and emotional rejuvenation, and greater well-being. While personal commitment to a particular guru or teacher, or group is not necessary, the most effective learning comes from a teacher with extensive experience.

We provide a small group size, individualized and expert supervision, a non-competitive environment, and a physically clean and meditative space at normal temperature. Each person is encouraged to discover and work within their own limits, so you don’t need to be in physical condition to practice yoga. However, it’s a good idea to consult your doctor if you have any physical limitations.

What People Say…


‘I thought that the session was wonderful last night. Lakshyan is extremely knowledgeable and accomplished a great deal in a relatively short amount of time with a sizeable group of people who appeared to be of varied experience.

His instruction was very clear and, with his fine guidance, I was able to explore avenues within where I had not, heretofore, ventured. I have always believed that we are all capable of great healing and it was very exciting to actually experience some of the steps of the journey. I thought that he presented our exercises in a very facilitating manner, as he described that the individual steps would eventually be pieced together. In this way, the task at hand was not daunting and seemed very possible.

Also, another exciting layer for me was how I could incorporate what I take away from this to benefit my patients. It also inspired me to educate myself further, beyond this trio of sessions.’

‘Your classes at the studio went over very well. The last class really went to the center of the material you have been mulling and reworking. As a student, I welcome the opportunity to deepen my understanding of the psychology of the asana practice. As teacher, I would like to guide others to practice and listen in this way. Yoga as self therapy. . . I think this is what you are bringing in, your understanding both in theory and practice. Personally, I couldn’t ask for more. This is exactly what I have been seeking to study. So please! continue to develop and formulate your ideas, systemize when possible so students will have some reference of the material.’
