"The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind & the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.” ~ B.K.S. Iyengar
We are a yoga community located in the heart of downtown Carmel, serving all of Monterey County.
Yoga is for EVERYONE. Our mission is to serve our community by creating a sanctuary to promote Health and Wellness through the practice and education of yoga.
At SYS, we offer yoga that is accessible to all ages and physical abilities. Our yoga classes are diverse in styles and levels of yoga; both for the seasoned practitioner and new to yoga.
Our first day of indoor classes will be Monday, April 5th. Initially our schedule will be lighter for indoors as we are still continuing outdoor and live streaming options and some teachers have opted to wait a little longer before returning to teaching.
We are hopeful that we can move quickly into the next tier that will allow up to 12 students at a time. Even at this number, students will have a minimum 10x10' of space apart from one another.
What you need to know:
1. As our number one priority is safety, we will be following all of the covid protocols set forth by our state and local government. This includes students continuing to register for classes online, completing a health waiver, and bringing your own mat and props (we will provide covers that are removable and washable to be able to use studio provided bolsters.) Basic props - blocks, straps, and blankets will be available for purchase.
2. We are fortunate to have a large space to safely distance students. We will have our front doors open for fresh air flow (there will be a screen placed out front for privacy and utilize our radiant floor heating and other heaters for warmth). Our HVAC unit flows fresh air directly from the rooftop.
3. As mentioned above we will be gradually unfolding more classes onto the schedule (as well as workshops and events)
4. Class passes (2, 4, 8, and unlimited) are valid for indoor, outdoor, and live streaming classes - they also include unlimited access to the video library while your pass is current!
Our classes are instructional based; incorporating the basic principles of alignment, breath awareness, and self exploration. Props are available and offered during class to modify, support or teach a posture.
Rich with heart and community, our team includes over 20 experienced & skillful instructors (scroll down for individual bios) that will support you in your practice.
Yoga meets you where you are. We offer guidance in proper alignment and safety in the practice for your body type.
