Our Facebook page has become more exciting lately! Check us out and like us.



The next permutation of LAVA School of Yoga is occurring.

Hello My Dear Friends,

As many of you have noticed I am selling the studio building. It has been a great place for our practice and growth for 6 years and I am so grateful for the space. When the studio is sold we are building a new studio and retreat.

I’m really excited.

We are also changing the schedule and the format for classes.

We now have instructional classes and practice sessions., but no more general drop-in classes. All new students start with a Beginner’s Course and then join the current students in our regular practice sessions. New students will never have to look around and wonder if they are “doing it right”; they will feel confident and ready for practice and instructional classes after completing the Beginner’s Course.

A student who has some experience in yoga but is new to our studio may consider this Beginner’s Course as a refresher or simply an introduction to our school.

If you haven’t yet been a regular student I wholeheartedly welcome you to begin your journey! The best place to start is the Beginner’s Course. Here we will make sure you are familiar with the mechanics of the basic asana (postures) and have an introduction to basic breathing practice and quiet sitting. The flyer for the next Beginner’s Course follows this article.

A few classes are still open to the public until we move to the new studio. Please join us!!!!!!!

Mondays Instruction Class 5:00-6:30pm

Fridays Restorative Yoga 5:30-6:30pm

Saturdays Slow Yoga 9am-10am

Bishi and Elektra’s Blanket Statement

Here are our tips for staying warm this winter:

Sit realllllly close to the heater vent or fireplace. If you get too hot and are panting then you can cool off a few feet away from the heater but then you can go right back again.

Go ahead and wear the sweater your Momma wants you to wear. It is kinda warmer than just fur.

Snuggle together with other dogs or even cats in your home. The best is to have the whole family snuggle together under a warm blanket while eating some snacks.

Practice your sad shivering technique. This will get people to snuggle with you more often.

Stay warm and eat snacks!!!!

See you all in class!
