The hardest part of Yoga isn't the asana's (Poses), it's walking through the front door.

Backbends with Heather

Partner Yoga

Connect with your favorite person in a combination of Partner and Thai Yoga. Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient full body treatment that works on the energy pathways throughout the entire body with massage work, acupressure points, and gentle yoga stretches. It helps to relieve muscular tension, improve circulation, boost the energy system, relieve years of tension and stress by opening tight joints, lengthening muscles, and providing a deep sense of well being by bringing the body back to alignment and its natural state of balance. In this workshop, we begin and end with gentle warm up yoga and then you and your partner will learn a sequence of stress-releasing stretches, assisted yoga poses, and rhythmic deep tissue massage. Combined with mindful breath and meditation, you will leave this unique experience feeling relaxed, energized and more balanced. Bring a friend, spouse or yoga buddy or be paired up when you arrive. No experience is necessary. Experience a deep stretch in your muscles and in your connection with each other. Partners come of all descriptions: friends, loved ones. Bring your Valentine… but this workshop is open to girl on girl action!

Ruah yoga studio was built for you. A place to find yourself, or lose yourself, but to be yourself.
Hot Power to Yin and everything in between.
RUAH, Your Om Away from Home.

How It All Started

We believed that if we opened our hearts and opened our doors
together we would move forward our mission of putting more mats on mother earth.
The plan is to have more people breathing and moving or sitting quietly and enjoying each other’s company or being quietly alone in a community space.
Whatever you have done in your life to this moment we can undo, whatever you have to offer we hope you will share.
Your practice matters.

How You Get Started

annual-unlimited

RUAH TIME

We operate on ruah time, which means practice begins when you arrive even if the class has started.  Just wait to enter the space until meditation is over and quietly settle in. We have made sure that there are classes at a variety of times for everyone.

HANDS ON

Down with, PPPP, you know me. Personal Private Practice Pro. If you want personal attention, just like belly buttons, you can be either and in-ie or an out-ie. We offer in class private assistance right on your mat during class, private individual or small group by reservation.

INFUSED WITH SPIRIT

All products are made by and for ruah

With full strength undiluted love and spirit

that grows with use and cannot

come out in the wash or lose potency

STYLE GUIDE

If you find your way to something to tough or too gentle or not the right fit, hang in and let us know afterward. We will make sure that you get another try to find your yoga class and your yoga teacher and your time slot. You have a place—let our yoga stylists help you find it.

PRACTICE MATTERS

If you’re running late, need a cell phone with you, have to leave early or you’re not sure if a Chevre pairs well with a Sauvignon Blanc, these are all things we can help with. Come anyway, put it on silent, tell the teacher and practice in the back. Point being, whatever the matter, just come, we will work it out.
