Two Trees Yoga serves a physically, generationally, economically, culturally, and racially diverse community by providing Kripalu-style yoga classes that build self-awareness and self-acceptance.

Two Trees Yoga works with anyone who is living with movement limitations, body and joint stiffness, physical disabilities, and chronic illness, pain and fatigue. We offer gentle yoga classes every day that we're open, so you can maintain a regular practice that meets your needs. 

If you've tried other yoga classes and they weren't for you, try Two Trees Yoga. 

Limited Time April Series: AYURVEDIC-BALANCING YOGA
Ayurveda is the science of life, and Yoga is the practice of this science. In this series of classes, we will work to integrate Ayurvedic perspectives into your yoga practice to bring about a greater sense of balance, harmony, self-awareness and health. In each class we will work with breath, meditation, physical postures, energy work, and essential oils to explore and balance our doshas (the five elements).
Sundays in April, Online Registration >

GENTLE YOGA, Gentle Level
Gentle Yoga offers a slower-paced, supportive, and relaxing yoga practice that will challenge you in safe ways. This class will include breathing techniques, gentle stretching, conscious movement, and relaxation. Gentle Yoga classes are appropriate for those with movement limitations, body and joint stiffness, physical disabilities, and chronic illness, pain and fatigue. Please check in with the teacher before class to discuss your particular needs.

KRIPALU BASICS, Beginner Level
Each Basics class will begin with breathing exercises (pranayama), a warm-up and a series of postures (asana) aimed to strengthen and stretch the body. We will focus on alignment and breathing cues, and explore how the physical and mental work of yoga connect. The transitions between poses will be slow and gentle.

SUN SALUTATIONS & MEDITATION, Intermediate Level
This Ashtanga-inspired class includes an active warm-up, 20-30 minutes of sun salutations, a gentle cool down including stretching, and ends with 10 minutes of seated meditation. This practice is designed to be a moving meditation that will help students develop self-awareness and self-acceptance.

HATHA YOGA, Beginner Level
Our Hatha Yoga classes focus on breath and alignment as students move through postures (asanas) and safely explore the edges of their physical and emotional strength. Classes will begin with breath techniques and end with gentle stretching and meditation.

YIN YOGA, Gentle Level
In Yin Yoga we will dive into sensation with loving awareness and, hopefully, excitement. We will focus on breath while we sustain postures with the intention of exploring subtle movements and moments. Students will pace themselves to move exactly as their bodies need, while also exploring the edge where ease and effort meet.

RESTORATIVE YOGA, Gentle Level
Restorative Yoga uses blankets, pillows and props to support your physical body, allowing for ultimate release, relaxation, and restoration. The teacher will offer guided meditations, soothing music, and essential oils to sweeten the experience. Students may bring warm layers, socks, and an eye pillow or eye mask. 

MORNING SADHANA, Intermediate Level
This class will guide you in awakening to your own rhythms, and help you start your day with grace, flexibility and grounding. Breathe, stretch, strengthen, and calm the mind--all before 8am!

SPECIAL OFFER FROM TWO TREES YOGA
Two Trees Membership - $99/mo (3 month commitment). Membership includes unlimited yoga classes at Two Trees Yoga, 10% off workshops and series, and one guest pass each month. 

SPECIAL BI-MONTHLY MESSAGE
NEW Series Starting!
Ayurvedic Balancing Yoga

Ayurveda is the science of life, and Yoga is the practice of this science. Participants explore their true nature, uncover what's holding them back from achieving balance, and then work it all out in the mat. Each class works with breath, meditation, physical postures, energy work, and essential oils to explore and balance doshas (the five elements). Says Two Trees Yoga owner Jennifer: “It's gonna be gooooooooood.”
