We believe that yoga is more than just exercise. At Home- Simply Yoga Ashtanga, Vinyasa Krama, Kundalini, vinyasa flow, prenatal, seniors, restorative, and therapeutic classes are taught by experienced senior teachers in a way that adapts to each student’s individual abilities and needs, helping them establish a personal practice with appropriate challenges while maintaining yoga’s numerous therapeutic benefits. As the first “green” yoga studio in Los Angeles, we used environmentally intelligent design principles to create a facility that is free of volatile off-gassing chemicals. A high- efficiency radiant heating system installed under the reclaimed mahogany floors provides constant draft-free temperatures and clean air with low energy consumption. No toxic chemicals are used in the cleaning and maintenance of the studio. We use recycled paper with vegetable-based inks for our printing, and installed a water filtration system to provide pure drinking water without the use of plastic bottles. Our blocks are recycled, and bolsters are hemp with organic cotton filling. We encourage students to bring their own mugs and glasses to reduce the use of disposable cups, and have initiated programs to encourage them to walk, bike, car pool, or take public transportation to practice. The healthy environment and experienced senior teachers of Home-Simply Yoga are the perfect combination for those new to yoga, as well as those with existing practices that want to deepen their experience as a part of a community that respects each other and the environment.
