Fundamentals Series

Fundamentals classes emphasize safe alignment to create a strong foundation for a regular yoga practice. These classes are excellent for those who are newer to yoga, as well as experienced yogis looking for a slower paced class with detailed instruction and exploration.
Breathing, strengthening, stretching, and balancing techniques are introduced in an encouraging and supportive environment.

SPA classes feature extra hands-on assists and massages, a calming candlelit atmosphere, delightful scents and beautiful music. Be prepared to feel like you just walked out of a SPA!

Gentle Flow

Gentle flow emphasizes breath work, mindfulness and simplicity. Exploring common postures, students can expect a calming flow that leaves space to discover a sense of kindness and friendliness to self that may even lead to sharing those qualities with others.
This class is great for all levels.

Teacher's Circle

Teacher’s circle is designed for 200HR and higher registered yoga teachers of any style to offer their classes in a supportive and open environment. Our aim is to grow, network and PRACTICE! Teachers will lead a class of their style, provide assists (tried and true, or experimental!), or elicit feedback from their peers. An open discussion and networking session will follow each class. Teachers can volunteer to assist these classes, either to garner feedback on their hands-on techniques or observe the lead teacher in action.
Teachers are welcome to sign up by emailing info@sutrastudio.com. Please note TEACHER’S CIRCLE in the subject of your email.
Teachers attending as students are asked to donate what they can to provide funds for organization of Teacher’s Circle, snacks, goodies, trainings and other fun things that yoga teachers are interested in. Please sign up online for this class.
