WE ARE GRINNING.

Stretch and strengthen your body AND mind with a music‐filled energizing and empowering yoga practice. 

At TGY, blend compassion and skillful guidance with fun and sweat to create a space for people to connect and take CARE!

New to yoga? 

** We highly recommend that new students and new flow students take our FUNdamental Flow, Lullaby or Chill Flow classes to start! **  

FUNdamental Flow provides a great tools for any and every yoga class, by giving you nuanced instruction about posture (asana), breath (pranayama), and offering flow modifications. Chill and Lullaby Flow move at a luxurious pace helping you explore postures and vinyasa right from your first breath.

A yoga practice can bring positive changes to your day even after ONE class.  Some benefits you’ll notice right away include:  a calmer mind, body awareness, and an awakened connection with LIFE.  Whether you are looking to increase your flexibility, condition your body, quell your mind, or (re)claim your INSPIRATION– yoga can assist you! Continued practice furthers these benefits and facilitates healthy connections on many levels — within ourselves, our relationships, our world at large

Truth:  Yoga feels good.  AND, if you already feel good– amazing!  A yoga practice can help you stay well both physically and mentally.  Yoga practices will change your mind and EMPOWER you to meet your potential.

You can start today.  Students are welcome to take ANY class but please let your teacher know you are new to yoga. We are here to support YOU!

Enjoy practice.  Enjoy life!

Heated studio? 

Yes, our studio is heated but it's NOT hot yoga. We warm the room to about 80-85 degrees fahrenheit. This keeps helps warm and open your body to the poses without melting you into a puddle by the end of class. We do recommend that you bring a water bottle to rehydrate during or after class. Mat towels can be helpful too if your mat tends to get slippery throughout the practice.
