Peaceful and powerful vibrations are waiting for you…

Interesting studies have shown a correlation between a threshold percentage of the population in an area meditating and the entire place becoming less violent. https://research.miu.edu/maharishi-effect/summary-of-13-published-studies.

To Lejla, yoga is personal. It is a grounding and liberating practice that gives the practitioner an insight to their truest self.

She believes that we all have gifts that can change the world that can be unlocked through yoga.

Being a busy college student and an active creative person on a mission; yoga is how she ties everything together and stays grounded. She is continuously moved and transformed by the benefits her own personal practice and wants to share the same gift with the world.

Sean Durkin


Community is what drives Sean. Meeting new people and taking in diverse perspectives motivate him to ascend. Bringing a unique outlook, along with direction from his personal practice, Sean strives to use this experience to inspire others.

Kate Swazee


Yoga provided the resilience and courage necessary for Kate to shatter the limiting beliefs she held about herself. By exploring the instinctual desire to move freely and making challenge a conscious effort in the practice, yoga took Kate to a new realm of freedom in both body and mind. It’s her desire to get you there too.

Eva Skillings


As a former classical ballet dancer, Eva was first drawn to yoga for the physical movement. After discovering how healing it can be both physically and mentally, she found an internal strength and freedom through her practice. The growth that she sees and experiences daily inspires her to help others see the light in going somewhere unknown and discovering something new about themselves.

Brent Dare


Brent has been an enthusiastic yoga practitioner for 3 years, all the while believing that yoga is not the answer, but simply one key to a doorway. A doorway that leads to clarity, liberty, and genuine peace.

Brent is an adventurous fellow who includes yoga to help in other endeavors such as climbing, snowboarding, and quests yet to be determined.

It only takes a few degrees to change a ship’s final destination.

JT Myers

“If somebody is waking for the first time from a deep sleep, she might see the midnight stars. But if she waits long enough without going back to sleep, she will begin to see not only stars, but the dawn, then the sunrise, and then the whole landscape being lit by a brilliant light coming from the sky. She will begin to see her hands, her palms, her toes, and she will also begin to see her tables, her chairs, and the world around her. And if she is clever enough to look at a mirror, she will see herself as well.”
Chögyam Trungpa

Robyn Connelly


Robyn believes that yoga is a pathway to connection, first with oneself and second with others. She is passionate about seeking balance between yin and yang energies to live in peace. Robyn would love to pass along these gifts through a consistent yoga practice with you.

Niki Adili

Niki Adili

I’m a young yogini who found yoga couple of years ago, from a class I accidentally joined that changed my life forever. Yoga brought the light I needed when I was lost in the dark. My mat has been, and will continue to be the space where I process, where I integrate, where I release old patterns, and where I build a foundation of new beginnings. I share the practice I am passionate about with others to lead them through finding their right direction by being more mindful and intentional with everything they do from the moment they open their eyes in the morning till they fall asleep again at night. Every single choice, every single thought, and every single breath counts. Once you become more aware to your surroundings, old patterns, and habits then you get to experience the magic of choice. My life will forever be a work in progress and I will forever be a student of this precious practice.


Each day on your mat is a beautiful opportunity to pour your heart into your practice whether it is your first day in yoga or your 5,000th practice. Although our classes can be physically demanding, HeartYoga is a safe space to be as you are. All of our classes are breathing classes first; everything else is secondary. All are welcome!

Follow the Yogi

Set in a calm, quiet room, Follow the Yogi is a series of powerful, ancient postures that support strength and vibrancy within.  This is a chance to practice along with your teacher and create a communal yoga spirit.  If you seek to begin each day with wonder, join us for this hot class.  Keep in mind instruction is minimal and this class is not appropriate for first-time yoga students.

Hot Vinyasa

Hot Vinyasa is an invigorating class of flowing postures to inspiring, upbeat music.  If you are looking to go beyond the ordinary and light your fire, this class is for you!  You will get HOT!

Deep Vinyasa

Deep Vinyasa is a slower sequence that encourages moving inward. Through feeling postures with the eyes closed, we explore the healing connection between mind and body.  This is a warm/hot class.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a meditative class where postures are held for 5-10 minutes in a warm room. This creates a profound release of the body’s connective tissue—like deep calming bodywork.  It’s a wonderful practice for those seeking peace and inner quiet.

Meditation Period

For those who wish to learn to meditate or deepen their current practice.  The teacher begins the hour with some simple instructions and may offer more guidance throughout the hour depending on the students’ level of experience.  Students should bring their own meditation cushion as props are very limited.  This is free class open to the community. 

Ashtanga Vinyasa Short-Form

The Short-Form is an adaptation of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in a hot room.  In this class you have time to breath into postures – we often hold them for 5 breaths. This develops an intuitive understanding of how your body can embrace these ancient shapes.

Community Yoga

This class open to the community offered at no charge, and are taught by our teachers in training. Come support their growth and build your practice!

The class format may changed based on the what format the trainee is working with, but it will always be a chance to get out of your head, move into your body and find greater balance/wholeness.

Donations appreciated and accepted after class, give whatever your heart calls you to give–financial or otherwise.




Yoga is the art of making connections and if you’ve felt your practice connect you more deeply to yourself and others, our teacher training program is for you. In it you have the opportunity to devote the time and energy necessary to bring about deep personal change. Students finish the training more loving, more present, more vibrant, and more able to share the gifts of their practice with others.

It is first and foremost a program of personal development. This is accomplished through 5 daily disciplines:

  • A regular meditation practice
  • A regular posture practice
  • Mindful eating
  • Gratitude journal
  • Acts of Kindness

These disciplines form the driving force of your training. However, they are just the beginning. Through lecture, discussion, reading and experiential work you gain an understanding of yoga’s origins, the key elements of its theory and philosophy, and how it works to bring about transformation. You also learn and practice the skills to teach yoga as well. We use this as a tool for you to deepen your relationship with yourself and your ability to make connections with others.

Some students choose to become teachers in the community after the training (we are a Yoga Alliance registered school), but our ultimate aim in sharing the art of teaching is that all our students become better listeners, more truthful communicators and more powerful human beings. This happens whether or not you ever teach an official yoga class. If this sounds good to you, here are the next opportunities to join us:

Hello again HeartYoga community,
After further consideration of the most recent data on the coronavirus and its ability to spread while an individual remains asymptomatic, we have changed our view and will be shutting down effective immediately and plan to remain closed until further notice.
HeartYoga is just too small a place for us to not come into close contact with one another. Even with a real effort to be hygienic, it is possible someone could unwittingly be infected and pass on the virus to other teachers or students, and they in turn could do the same outside the studio.
Even with all the tremendous benefits an in-person yoga practice provides, we can’t take this risk.
In the meantime we will suspend all auto-pay memberships, and once we know the exact duration of the suspension, we will extend any package expiration dates to reflect that lost time. If you have questions about how this will effect your membership simply email us.
Also keep your eyes peeled for online content to keep both your meditation and practice going. We will be sharing it via our website, social media and email. In case you missed it in our last email here is a link to me teaching a short form ashtanga class: https://youtu.be/il2R_Ax0YwE It is a great home practice.
We appreciate your understanding and support during these times and still will be working to help you emerge from this crisis with your health and happiness intact.
Much love to you all,
Jason Hulshof
HeartYoga Founder
