WELCOME TO THE YOGA LOFT

The yoga loft is a place where you can come and experience yoga in a safe, non-judgmental and welcoming space.  We believe that yoga can be done by every body; all ages, shapes and sizes, regardless of religion, race and/or creed.

Maybe you have been mulling over the idea of trying a yoga class for the first time, but just haven’t made it to a class.  Or, maybe something is holding you back; fear of being intimidated; walking into a class as the ‘newbie’ or fear of not being …flexible, thin, fit, strong, or confident enough.   Or maybe it’s just that life has been busy and you haven’t been able to make the time.  We’ve all been there.  The reality though, is that yoga makes time.  When we can come back to our center, (that peaceful, calm place that is within every one of us) consistently, we can clear our heads.   What does this mean?  This means that we are able to refocus, refresh, and go back to our day to day tasks with clarity, focus and balance; leaving us more productive, along with the ability to prioritize in a more effective and meaningful way.

 

HOW WILL YOU KNOW UNLESS YOU TRY?

We suggest you try a couple of classes and see what styles resonate with you.  To read more about the styles of yoga we offer, please visit our Class Description Page.  Along with the different styles of yoga, each of our teachers shines through their own authentic personality and individual flare.  We are so fortunate to have such a strong Sangha at The Yoga Loft.  Although we are each very different, we do share in our love and passion for yoga, as students and teachers.   We are happy and humbled to share this passion, and our beautiful space with you.

WHY IT’S NEVER TOO LATE

All yoga students (including teachers) have their reasons for not starting yoga sooner, but keep in mind, it is never too late.  Of course, there are always reasons or excuses to put things off, especially when it comes to self care.  If you are a caregiver by nature, this can be especially challenging.  Often it feels like we have too many responsibilities that take priority.  The reality though, is that with many of our modern day illnesses directly linked to stress (75% of all Dr’s visits are stress related),  it is crucial that we make the time for self care.

I’m sure you’ve heard of the many benefits of yoga.  It’s all over these days; in movies, commercial ads, billboards etc.  I will take it as a sign though, that if you’re checking out our site – you’re obviously curious, at least!  So, I encourage you to have an open mind, sit back, relax and READ ON!

Developing a regular yoga practice expands our hearts and minds.  Yoga is an amazing exercise that leads to emotional development in the form of increased self awareness, self acceptance, feelings of compassion, and interconnection with something greater.   Yoga makes us HAPPY!  Yoga awakens hidden reserves of energy within our nervous,  endocrine and cardiovascular systems, replacing drowsiness and fatigue with feelings of aliveness and alertness.  Yoga physiologically transforms apathy and depression by oxygenating the brain and increasing the endorphins in the blood.  Let me give it to you straight – the benefits of yoga on the mind and the body are endless!

Most importantly, yoga reminds us of who we truly are.  Yoga reminds us that we have the power within us to answer difficult questions, to access our own internal healing abilities, and to really be available.  Yoga teaches us to see clearly what we can ‘let go’ of.  So, are you ready to be the best version of YOU that you can be?
