Yoga for health and well-being accessible to everyone
Yoga on Yamhill is dedicated to the practice and teaching of yoga. Our teachers are committed professionals with a wide range of backgrounds who share a common vision of making the ancient science of yoga accessible to all people. We foster a non-competitive, "stay in your own practice" approach, encouraging awareness of pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation, in addition to the asanas (postures) to bring the practice of yoga to a deeper level.
We want to create a mutually respectful, self-responsible, positive yoga environment where all paths are honored. We support our ideology by offering several yoga classes per week that are open to all levels of yoga experience. Our teachers teach to whomever attends class - beginners and advanced students are often on mats right next to each other. These classes offer a safe and comfortable space to explore the practice of yoga.

All of our classes and workshops are offered on a donation basis. The amount you donate is up to you. The suggested donation is $8-$12, however we do not want to prevent anyone from practicing yoga because they can't afford it. We simply believe that yoga is for everyone who wants to participate.
Do you have Yoga Mats?

As a Beginner, What can I expect from yoga?
When you start practicing yoga you will find that it works on several levels. As a beginner, you will experience the practice of yoga as a form of physical exercise that challenges and refines your flexibility, strength and balance. You will learn to control your breathing in a relaxed and controlled manner that helps provide focus in the different postures you will move through. Learning to do this properly is the path to many of the mental and spiritual benefits of yoga. As the individuals yoga practice deepens, greater flexibility of mind and body is achieved. Yoga matches development of physical strength with emotional strength, this empowers the practitioner to face life's challenges with a balanced disposition.
