Canyon Spirit has its roots in Kripalu Yoga, which emphasizes not only how you practice, but how you live your life. We've created a place (practice) where you can learn to bring mind, body, and spirit into a state of harmony and balance. The postures stretch and strengthen the whole body, releasing chronic tension that can dull your vitality. Noticing sensations through mindful breathing helps create connection between the body and mind and improves concentration. Deep relaxation, which is practiced at the end of each class, allows energy to flow to areas that are most in need of rejuvenation and healing. You will leave your class feeling calmer, happier, more energized, and more willing to resume your life. We believe that feeling this way is your natural birthright.

We are skillful in working with typical aging issues, such as problems with knees, shoulders, and low back pain. We also work with concerns about losing strength and flexibility, depression, anxiety, and osteoporosis as part of the human experience. 


Canyon Spirit is a calm and quiet respite from the busy-ness of the world. A sanctuary.
