YogaSpace Classes:

We offer a variety of classes and approaches to yoga so you can find the class that's right for you! In order to simplify our schedule and to make our classes recognizable to current and prospective students, we modified some of our current class titles and grouped them broadly into several areas.  You still have fabulous teachers teaching their own special practice; but now you’ll be able to see quickly what other classes on the schedule meet your interests!

Here's a quick guide to our classes:
