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.”

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.


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.
