Welcome to The Yoga Garden website,
the place to learn about the work I do with yoga.
To me, yoga is a garden. A beautiful and nurturing place for all sorts of growth, study, and art. The Iyengar-style classes and workshops I teach at The Yoga Room in Berkeley, CA, range from yoga for beginners to advanced studies for those wishing to deepen their practice or become yoga teachers themselves. I teach workshops and one weekly class of Yoga Movement, an innovative blend of dance and yoga that offers asana practice and the experience of moving with others.
In addition to regular classes, I offer Yoga Retreats, a wonderful way to get away and be in a supportive environment for whole days at a time. The retreats include about five hours of class time each day concentrating on the healing and energizing aspects of yoga with time for deep relaxation and pranayama. The retreat centers I have chosen are all in beautiful natural settings away from the distractions of everyday life. I have scheduled retreats for August at Mayacamas Ranch in Calistoga, CA, and for October at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House in Taos, New Mexico.
Lastly, The Yoga Garden Dancers planted a seed last fall, and we are hoping to present new work in the late spring. Please check back soon for updates on this and future gatherings.Namaste, Gay White
