FREE Yoga for BIPOC w/ Kassira

Monday’s at 7:30 pm in July | FREE: sign up on classes page

Yess Yoga is excited to announce that starting June 1, the Monday 7:30pm class will be Vinyasa for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color), taught by Kassira Absar. These classes are for folks who identify as BIPOC to be in community while in practice—especially during a time where physically being in community can feel impossible. We recognize that moving through a world filled with microaggressions, racial trauma, and historical systems of oppression allow little room to take up space. The mat is YOUR space to TAKE UP space. The time is for you to participate in a guided practice and just be and breathe.  We look forward to having you in class!

Yoga Tantra & Meditation w/ Jessica

Wednesday’s in July at 7 pm  | Members, class pass, and drop-in’s welcome |  sign up on the classes page

Tantra is a practice of connecting with ourselves to establish a deeper connection to who we are. I like to think of each person as a tiny microcosm of the whole universe, and as we develop our relationship with our inner universe, our understanding of the greater universe grows. We feel whole and we feel comfortable with ourselves.
As we practice Tantric meditation, our confidence grows and our trust in our inner voice grows. We trust our inner healer and begin to understand that we are all healers.
The movement portion of class brings us into our body, and balances the Chakras and in Western terms, the Endocrine system. The meditation will bring us deeper within and we will also use Mantra to vibrate healing and empowering sound into each cell in our body. Class will end with a relaxing and healing sound bath, where you relax and listen to the healing sounds of mantra, singing bowls, and/or the Gong.
This class is open to all levels and body types! Beginners to yoga, meditation and mantra are welcome and encouraged to attend!

FREE Yoga for Healthcare Providers w/ Kassira

Saturday at 8:30 am  | FREE: sign up on classes page

The compassion and empathy shown by healthcare professionals can prove physically and mentally costly. Every day, healthcare providers are asked to assist patients and families through some of life’s most stressful situations like traumatic accidents, chronic illness, medical errors and death. Research has begun to identify the impact this is having upon the people caring for these individuals. It is increasingly being recognized that healthcare staff are at risk of suffering post-traumatic reactions, compassion fatigue and burnout.


Yoga has shown to be an effective method for stress management and improving overall mental/emotional health. It can be a powerful complement to talk therapy and other self-care strategies. Trauma-informed yoga is taught in a very specific manner, emphasizing control over one’s own experience, honoring the limits of one’s own body, and inviting practitioners to explore their individual experience in every breath and every pose.


Sign up today or contact Lucia at with questions.

Online Deep Psoas Release with Marnie

Wednesday, July 22nd | 7:30-8:45 pm | $20 or FREE for members (members-contact )

Did you know that your psoas muscle is the “Muscle of the Soul”? It is a muscle deep within our abdominal cavity connected to the hips, low back, and core. It also has a important connection to our central nervous system, spine and our fight or flight response. That is why when we experience trauma or even everyday tension we often store that energy deep within the psoas. The result can lead to tightness all over the body, chronic pain and stored anxiety.   Taoist philosophy believes that a healthy psoas can awaken the spine and allow energy to flow freely through the bones, tissues, muscles and joints.  This free energy then grounds into the earth and rebounds through the body up to the cosmos. Therefore a healthy psoasis crucial not only for physical, but mental, emotional and spiritual health as well.  Deep Psoas Tension Release is a set of exercises created to fatigue the Posas and induce involuntary shaking and tremor of the muscle.  As a result, this practice can create a reset for the entire body.  The following are just some of the benefits reported from this practice.
– reduction of anxiety, anger, stress, tension and post trauma symptoms
– better, deeper sleep
– reduction of muscle and back pain
– increases mobility, energy levels and autonomy
– resolves bodies trauma patterns neurologically
– reduced anger and rage
– release of emotions from mild upset to severe anxiety
– balancing of the nervous system
– aid to healing of past injuries
– relief from chronic medical conditions
– helps recovery from addictions
– complements speech and other therapies
– improving of relationships, less conflicts
– increase of self-esteem and confidence
