NEWS & EVENTS
We invite you to experience the many benefits of Iyengar Yoga, including physical health and vitality, mental clarity, and emotional serenity. You may begin classes at any time. The current session will resume whenever we can reopen.
Green Tara Yoga Temporarily Closed
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, Green Tara Yoga will be temporarily closed until it is prudent to re-open. We will continue the current session starting on the date that we resume our classes.
Online Yoga Resources for You
We are currently working on how we can support your yoga practice, and also on how you can support the continued viability of Green Tara Yoga.

The powerful teachings of yoga can be deeply supportive to all of us at this stressful time. We hope you will continue with a daily yoga practice, or take this opportunity to start practicing at home. Inversions and restorative poses are both important, as they support the immune system and quiet the nervous system. As we face this enormous challenge, may we all remain calm, mindful, compassionate and wise.
