Island Yoga Welcomes Beginners, Seniors, and Injured Bodies for Sessions
At Island Yoga, we welcome yoga students of all ages and levels. Whether you are a beginner or beyond, all our classes are designed with your growth in mind. Our mission is to help you gain better breathing, mobility, and quality of life. Nothing brings us more joy than helping you on your journey to resetting, relaxing, and restoring your whole body. Because we are a one-room yoga studio conducting one class at a time, please pre-register for class whenever possible to ensure your spot.
Our smaller space ensures the best possible student-to-teacher ratio for the highest quality instruction and promotes an authentic community culture where every single person counts and every class is your best one. Sign up here for your next session.
Make the Most of Your Studio Experience
Even if you have been training for years, each studio has its own guidelines to help everyone feel included and to create a sense of sanctity in the space. By following the Island Yoga principles, you will be doing your part to help build our community of growth and positivity.
- Arrive a little early to get settled and centered for class (we open 20 minutes before each class starts).
- Check in at the front desk before entering the studio.
- There is NO SUCH THING AS “SPOTS” IN THE YOGA ROOM. We urge you to diversify your practice by changing where you place your mat from class to class.
- Leave silenced cell phones, shoes, bags, and other personal belongings in the lobby.
- Bring a yoga mat, towel, and water bottle. We do have rental mats to loan for $3.
- Do not engage in loud conversation during class and keep voices low before and after class.
- Return props neatly on the shelves and clean mats and blocks as needed.
- Island Yoga is a body-positive studio. Please no negative self talk!

All Yoga Props Welcome for Use
At Island Yoga, we are uniquely equipped with a vast array or props to ensure your comfort and support within every class. Props are especially useful if you have injuries or conditions. In the spirit of self-care and relaxation, props can also allow you to approach the yoga postures with greater ease and grace.
Our instructors are highly trained and teach intuitively to the room. We provide you with variations and modifications for postures to ensure you enjoy class at your own pace, abilities and experience. Below are some of the available props available at Island Yoga. Due to COVID-19, we are urging students to use our antimicrobial cork blocks and to bring their own mats and props, if possible. If you would like to rent a mat or use our props, you may opt to bring a towel to serve as a protective barrier. We are sanitizing in between classes and taking extra measures to ensure maximum cleanliness but are capping class sizes (please make sure to pre-register!) and urging everyone to enjoy a minimal or props-free/hands-on adjustments-free session.
