The Art and Science of Bringing Heart-Centered Yoga to Life


Heart of the Village Yoga was founded six years ago with the clear intention of building a heart-centered community where we live our yoga. This unique and life-enriching program is founded in the centuries-old methodologies of classical Patanjali yoga, while also expanding into more modern mindfulness and heart-centered practices intended to promote healthy and happy living.

Our programs are centered around the needs and interests of our students. The group becomes our identity. We facilitate your learning, we help you develop your yoga practice, and we support you in your quest to bring your yoga into your life. By enrolling into this program, you become part of our family community, and you become a vital part in the success of the overall program.

If you are – or want to be – a dedicated practitioner, if you have open heart and a willing mind, and if you know that now is the time for you to begin this “journey of a thousand miles” – join us! Deepen your intentional practices to find peace-of-mind and ease-in-your-body. Discover your innate abilities to take action and to serve the greater good with greater clarity. Expand your knowledge – and your wisdom in utilizing that knowledge. Open your hearts and be devoted to the ideal of loving awareness and heart-centered living!

Together, integrating a curriculum from the schools of Karma, Raja, Jnana, and Bhakti Yoga, we will study and practice the yoga of action, intention, knowledge and devotion… and bring your heart-centered yoga practice to life!
