To encompass means to include, surround, achieve.
Our mission is to include unique settings for each of our classes,
surround ourselves with Mother Nature and all she has to offer,
and achieve a level of peacefulness and balance in our practice
that will transcend into our daily lives.
Our classes are focused primarily on a Vinyasa Flow.
We offer a non-competitive environment
for students of all levels to enjoy outdoor yoga.

We have partnered with Rock The Love Yoga to provide free yoga for the children of our students at the same time as our regularly scheduled classes every Wednesday(morning & evening) and Saturday. It's pretty simple...
The mission is love.
Rock the Love Yoga is a heart centered and hip way for kids to learn the principals of yoga and embrace their authenticity. It is our goal to continue to bring love, self-confidence, self-empowerment and emotional responsibility to our children in a safe and fun environment.

Kara was Certified to teach AcroYoga by Jenny and Jason in July 2011 at the Teacher Training in Corfu, Greece.
