About Us

Who we are and what we do

Our story

Karuna Yoga offers all-level Vinyasa and Sivananda practices, and teacher training in the full Classical Raja Yoga system at the 200- and 300-hour levels.

Although our Vinyasa classes offer continuously linked pose practice, the practices move slowly and offer ways to do each pose on a spectrum — from beginner to most advanced. In this way, newer practitioners benefit from the skill of others without sacrificing any advancement on either end. Detailed instructions are given and attention is paid to every student.

Our Sivananda practice is the traditional 12-pose practice.
