We strive for a comprehensive teaching of yoga, meditation and healthy living.

The yoga studio is our Shala, a community place for learning and growth. At Holistic Yoga School International, we believe that Home is where your Om is. At each of our classes and courses, we devote special attention to creating comfortable environments for students to release from the distractions of day-to-day life and dive into practice and study.

Our teaching style draws from various traditions and ancient wisdoms, delivered with contemporary style and translation. Focus is on the practice of yoga as an instrument to reveal a greater sense of healthy awareness, harmony and serenity.


A holistic lifestyle approach offers a well-rounded and authentic program. Students learn self-healing techniques and find depth in their practice through these sequences. Spinal integrity and alignment are emphasized.

All students are welcome, beginner to advanced. Posture modifications are offered so students may find the desired level of intensity for their practice.

While distinctive and contemporary, our approach is strongly rooted in the philosophical teachings and wisdoms that have been handed down through the generations. Our programs take a comparative approach to teaching, exposing participants to a vast array of concepts, theories and traditions. In this way participants may mesh what they find relevant into yoga that is meaningful to them.

We also draw on various natural health practices to offer a well-rounded and authentic approach. Particular emphasis is placed on a holistic approach, spiritual awareness, energetic awareness including chakra systems, meditation, earth medicine, artistic expression, ethnobotany, herbalism, dietetic health, yoga as medicine, Ayurveda, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, Sanskrit, Seva work / community involvement and sustainable natural living.

Additional special topics include Living Meditation, Yoga for Prenatal, Children, Special Needs, mental health, and more!

“My overall experience was life-changing. I felt immersed in a culture of learning, acceptance, growth, and light.  A creative space ensued that made for a truly special environment, and if I could I would do it all over again ten times over.”
