metta yoga -- a trusted community of loving kindness
feel freeto experience our new Metta community home. We are happy to share with you that we have moved and are happily settled in our new space. We are just across the street from our old location: Gaslight Square 3627 E Indian School rd. #108, located in the inner courtyard, facing the fountains and blooming bushes.
It feels like we have always been here. Raised ceilings and bamboo floors are loved by everybody! The theme is woven trough the rest of the studio by bamboo lamps and bamboo inspired bathroom and kitchenette (did you notice even faucets are bamboo inspired?!), complemented by bamboo plants and orchids; with natural light streaming through floor to ceiling windows and completing the inviting energy of the entire space. You can watch the last 2 months of the space transformation in our FB album.

This is NOT for new students only and anyone can use this special, BUT there is only one pass per person (this trick can not be repeated :) The special also includes a 20% discount to shop in our expanded yoga boutique.

feel free to celebrate with us! Arizona Foothills magazine named us in the TOP 6 YOGA STUDIOS in Phoenix, with special honors for our restorative yoga program including Zuzana's, Kat's and Lorilee's classes. Please read the details here and help us the spread this exciting news. We are also happy to share with you, that Zuzana is back (after her skiing injury) teaching her Yoga Therapy classes. In her classes, students are guided through a set of postures and informed about specific health benefits of each pose. Detailed instruction is given for posture modification, reflecting a student's limitation and contraindications. This allows them to taylor the practice based on their current physical/health condition. Postures are held for a longer period of time (2-10 mins) to achieve the therapeutic benefit, and to allow time to adjust not only the posture alignment, but also the proper breathing and state of mind - which can vary based on the posture. Buy 5-class card $75 | Buy 10-class card $125 | Pre-pay drop-in $17 Please RSVP for the Phoenician, RSVP for Arcadia.
