“Swami Satchidananda was one of the early pioneers in bringing the knowledge of Yoga and Vedanta to this country. Had it not been for his contribution we wouldn’t have seen the popularity of Yoga that we see today, which is mainstream. I salute him for helping to change the course of the world.”
Dr. Deepak Chopra, spiritual teacher, author
Been wondering why Yoga is so popular? Been wanting to try but don’t know where to begin? Been feeling too intimidated to just jump into a class? This series, based on Integral Yoga, will allow you to embody the practice in a safe and supportive environment with assistance and modifications geared for your body. Kathleen will guide you and provide you with a balanced practice that you will be able to duplicate at home.
Benefits to yoga include but are not limited to: flexibility, strength, stamina, breath awareness, stress release, organ massage and revitalization, rejuvenation, muscles toning, mind-body-breath connection.
Classes will include a Spiritual reading from the founder, Sri Swami Satchidananda, eye exercises, asanas or poses, yoga nidra or deep relaxation, pranayama or breathing practices, chanting and meditation.
The format is tried and true for over 40 years in the Western world. The poses are classic, traditional and developed for all ages, bodies and abilities.
“To progress in the Integral Yoga Hatha practice, there is no need to keep adding additional poses. The practice deepens and advances when the poses are held longer, with greater concentration.
This approach prevents one from becoming stuck in the physical aspect of Yoga while it allows one to maintain a healthy body and peaceful mind in order to experience a more useful life.”
thursdays 4:30-6:00pm may 17th - JUNE 28TH
In this introductory series, you will learn some new yoga poses, breathing exercises, and mantras to deepen your meditation. No matter your body size, how stiff or flexible you are, your strength, or your mobility, you are beautiful and you can practice Kundalini Yoga. Even if your body cannot do a particular pose or you sit in a chair, imagining the pose will benefit you. Each week will have a special theme that will highlight the beauty of your body and spirit.
You may practice from a mat or a chair. All levels encouraged to attend.
Drop-ins welcome, $14. Class cards welcome.

HEART OF THE MATTER - 3 part active meditation
"Meditation is the tongue of the soul and the language of our spirit." Jeremy Taylor
There is something that our hearts long for, no matter what our background, upbringing or culture. Some call it love. Some call it purpose or meaning. Some call it freedom, God, Spirit or Home. Some have no words for it, but they can feel it.
What we seek is often covered by the overwhelm of life, the pain of failed relationships, anxiety, fear, judgments, anger, unworthiness, arrogance and more.
We will be welcoming both the curious and the experienced to come explore our personal power, together with Laura Love Barnum Uherka! Please bring a notebook.
3-Part Meditation Class
ACTIVE – A guided process that uses various types of music, allowing for stress release and a deeper connection to your self and your intentions. Emotional as well as mental and physical relief, opening and clarity.
