On May 1st 2001, The Yoga Room opened its doors to the Nantucket Community as a year-round yoga studio. The dream of providing a haven of study in a practice which had personally transformed my life began as I gazed out my backyard and the saw the potential for what became a grassroots effort bringing together much of the island yoga community.
As we broke ground, I continued to teach in a rental space and each student knew that the $10 they were paying for class brought us closer to the reality of what became The Yoga Room.
The Yoga Room has flourished with a staff of experienced, diverse and dedicated teachers, each offering something very special and unique. The classes, workshops and privates we offer incorporate an eclectic blend of many styles and traditions. Our integrity as teachers is paramount and evident to all those that walk through our door.
The Yoga Room offers so much to the Nantucket community, and we are proud to announce that we are expanding our reach—beginning in the summer of 2013, The Yoga Room is offering its classes for on-demand online viewing. We have partnered with StudioLiveTV (Register/Login Here: nantucketyogaroom.studiolivetv.com) to bring your favorite instructors and classes to you, wherever you may be. Now you can access The Yoga Room via your computer, tablet, or mobile device. We are thrilled to provide our community with this incredible feature, so that everyone can keep practicing and stay connected in spite of distance or a busy schedule.
It has been tremendously gratifying to witness the personal growth of students who have continued to make yoga such an integral part of their lives. Shifting universal consciousness begins with one person at a time, one heart at a time, one intention at a time.
Here’s to a lifetime of practice and a kinder and more peaceful world – my dream lives on…
The Yoga Room is committed to providing a safe and supportive teaching environment that inspires our students and the community toward optimal health and well being.
The Yoga Room espouses holistic wellness which incorporates body, mind and spirit. Our intention is to facilitate a richer, creative, authentic and harmonious life through both the physical and philosophical teachings of yoga. It is our belief that a committed practice ultimately allows us to open to grace in all areas of our lives.
“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.”
