Kali is a goddess in the Hindu tradition, and she is known for a number of things. Firstly, she is considered the Goddess of Empowerment, and the Goddess of Time and Change. She is a powerful & benevolent Mother Goddess, but she also has a dark side to her, as we all do. Kali’s other name is the Goddess of Destruction – specifically using destruction as a way to create space for what each person wants to build & create for themselves. Yoga can be peaceful & meditative, but it can also be challenging & fiery. Kali has a benevolent side as well as a fierce side, and she demonstrates that there is lightness & darkness within all things. Our Mission Statement.

At Kali Yoga Studio we offer a variety of styles and levels to suit every practitioner. By offering different styles of yoga, we hope that you’ll take the opportunity to expand your practice and try what each of our teacher’s specializes in. Vinyasa Yoga Yin & Yang Restorative Yoga Forrest Yoga Rocket Yoga Beginners Yoga Vinyasa is steady dynamic flow of connected yoga asanas linked with breath in a continuous movement. This style class can include traditional Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) A & B, twists, back bends, hip openers, shoulder openers, and/or inversions and arm balances. Each vinyasa instructor will pull from their own inspiration – this can include anything from Prana Flow, Rocket, Ashtanga, Forrest, and Iyengar influences. For a completely integrated practice, this class combines a more heating, ‘Yang’ flow with the quiet, cooling ‘Yin’ aspects of relaxing restorative poses. Yin postures are held longer to cultivate a meditative mindset and deeper physical opening. Expect to leave feeling refreshed and relaxed. Restorative Yoga, suitable for all levels, uses long-held, fully-supported poses to encourage a deep, parasympathetic relaxation response. In a typical class, we will hold 4-8 postures throughout the class for 2-15 minutes each. Restorative Yoga focuses on relaxing the mind and body in restful postures through the use of props. You’ll definitely sleep well afterward! Forrest Yoga is renowned as an intensely physical and internally focused practice that emphasizes how to carry a transformative experience off the mat and into daily life. This style teaches you how to connect into feeling with your body and use the power of breath to bring aliveness into every cell of your body. Expect to do abdominal work to get...Read More
