January Newsletter


✨Our values are rooted in a foundation of community, connection and mindful movement. Movement, Intention, & Community for all. ✨


Join us in our first YoBa Movement Celebration!  All month long we will be focusing on moving from a place of joy and celebration  that we have bodies to move! We will be moving together this month with purpose, intention, and human connection to come back to our TRUTH! The parts of us that already lye within us. 

This month we will be diving deep within to help remind us of our truth! What makes you come alive? Use your time within to ask yourself the hard questions to be inquisitive and learn more about what really make your mind, body, and spirit SHINE bright. When we give our mind, body, and spirit time to connect we are able to come back to our truth or maybe even discover a sense of truth we never knew we had. 

Mantra for the month: I move to celebrate myself, my body, my breath. I move to connect all parts of myself. Every time I show up authentically for myself is as opportunity to illuminate my truth and activate the light within me.

Let's take some time for us this month to slow down the mind but move the body. Shifting our perspective from looking outside but instead diving deeper and looking within. We hold the light, now let's SHINE! 

"Inner strength to outer SHINE"
Let 2019 be year of YOUR TRUTH!

YoBa Yoga Fundamentals Series - Sun Salutation B

Sunday, January 6th from 3:00pm - 4:15pm

Designed for students who are new to yoga and for those who are looking to gain a deeper understanding of the fundamental philosophy and foundational poses that yoga is built upon. Combining discussion, demonstration and practice, this will introduce you to yoga practice at a leisurely pace, step-by-step, with more in-depth alignment instruction than you will receive in a regular yoga class. We will dive into yogic breathing techniques and get a taste of the most frequently encountered yoga poses, with an opportunity to ask questions. You'll leave with a better understanding of how to safely practice different postures, and more importantly, learn how to practice poses CORRECTLY which will support your body for years to come. Every month will have a different part of the yoga flow as a focus, this month we will be breaking down Sun Salutation B in particular. Held in a NON-HEATED room.

YoBi of the Month - Grace Mercurio
"I am an ordinary 15 year old girl who devotes her time to the YoBa community. YoBa is a place I spend a hour or possibly a hour-fifteen to relieve stress and find strength within myself. But most importantly it allows me to share my practice with my mother, who also shares the same passion for yoga. Thus, being in my second year at the studio, I have created a love for the practice and see it as much more than a workout. Ever since leaving competitive dance, YoBa has given me a creative outlet to express myself. This is what sets YoBa apart from every other studio. No matter what, I know that I have a studio that provides a space for me to have a quality practice or simply just a peaceful escape. Not only do I spend most afternoon practices with my mom, I also have the option to invite friends to join me at YoBa. No matter your age or experience of yoga and barre, everyone feels welcomed and part of a community. I am so grateful to be part of a studio that welcomes me to warm smiles and hugs anytime I step foot into YoBa. My mom and I call YoBa a home, an escape, a place to find yourself, and most importantly a studio that I call family."
