The Yoga Barn
The Yoga Barn is an expansive large modern building with beautiful hardwood floors, large windows, and hand-crafted sliding entry doors. The space has a treatment room with a comfortable massage table and a full bathroom. You can also roll up a wall of awnings to take in an indoor-outdoor experience on a beautiful day. The Yoga Barn comes fully equipped with yoga mats, blocks, straps, meditation cushions, blankets, back-jacks, and folding chairs for up to 15 students.
Step right out the door of the Yoga Barn to our Grotto Kitchen, a partially covered patio area with a built-in stone BBQ grill, small refrigerator, sink, and plenty of counter top space for preparing food. The Grotto Kitchen has lounge chairs to relax and a large rustic wood dining table with fourteen chairs. Ambient lighting over a trellis in the dining area creates an intimate gathering space.

Mantra Mondays: Weekly Meditation & Yoga
This weekly Monday Meditation and Yoga class is based in the classic yoga tradition and philosophy of India, taught for thousands of years. We will practice yoga postures to loosen the muscles, joints, and ligaments before moving into meditation. The meditation is a technique for letting go of distracting thoughts and promoting a state of relaxed expanded awareness that you can practice daily.
During the class, you learn to sit in a comfortable position with your eyes closed and silently repeat a mantra. A mantra is a word or sound from the Vedic tradition that is used to focus your concentration. One of the goals of yoga meditation is for your ordinary thinking process to be replaced by a state of pure consciousness. In this state, you achieve perfect stillness, rest, stability, and a complete absence of mental boundaries. Combined with the deep stretching of yoga, this practice is powerfully transformative physically, mentally, and energetically.
Mondays 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
