OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our studio’s philosophy is rooted in the firm belief that everyone can do yoga. Our diverse offerings reflect that belief: we meet you where you are while helping you build the tools to grow, and encouraging you to listen to your own body’s wisdom. Most of our intermediate and advanced classes revolve around fun and mindful vinyasa flow that draws on the lineages of Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Anusara Yoga.

Kirtan with Swami Gurusharanananda and Pure Kirtan

Join Swamiji with Angie and Josh at Upper Valley Yoga in WRJ and chant the Divine Name! When Swamiji chants with Pure Kirtan, it’s just magical. Come and immerse yourself in the Divine! Several years ago Josh and I made our way to Omkareshwar, a small island in India. Our lives were forever changed by the dear friends we made, the inspiring beauty of India, and the gentle presence of Swami Gurusharanananda, teacher and devotee of Anandamayi Ma. Swamiji's message is sweet and simple: make time each day to connect with the divine and to find the joy in all of life's simple pleasures. Suggested donation: $20 Contact: Angie Follensbee-Hall follhall@protonmail.com

iRest Yoga Nidra FREE

iRest (integrative restoration) Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) is a simple form of mindfulness meditation. iRest provides a way to feel at ease when life gets challenging. iRest helps you tap into a place that is calm—even when your life is not. Some people use iRest to relax when life gets busy. Others use it to help heal from serious trauma, stress, insomnia, depression, PTSD, chronic pain, and chemical dependency. A significant body of research shows that iRest meditation helps increase happiness; decrease stress, anxiety, and depression; improve sleep; increase energy; and strengthen resilience to deal with day-to-day life. This is a free event; all are welcome. Sign up to save a spot.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga is exactly what it sounds like—a combination of gentle yoga and restorative poses. Restorative postures use multiple props to support the body so that you can hold poses for longer than is typical in an active practice.  This nourishing support allows you to open the body through passive stretching. The postures are usually adapted from supine or seated yoga poses with the addition of blocks, bolsters, and blankets to eliminate  strain. This class is generally offered once a month and taught by Miriah.
