The Yoga Room has been a quiet sanctuary for yoga practice since 2004. We offer mindfulness-based Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin yoga classes for adults of all ages and levels of experience. We take a unique approach with our weekly yoga classes by designing 2 to 4 month sessions around a speciﬁc theme for students who are looking for a more in-depth, enriching yoga experience. Our yoga classes are intentionally small -- a maximum of 7 students -- so that each student receives the attention they deserve.
PLEASE NOTE: IN LIGHT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC ALL IN-STUDIO CLASSES AT THE YOGA ROOM ARE CURRENTLY SUSPENDED. DETAILS COMING SOON ABOUT A NEW SUMMER COURSE. IN THE MEANTIME, PLEASE CONTINUE ENJOYING CHRISTY'S CLASSES VIA AUDIO DOWNLOAD. NEW CLASSES WEEKLY!
Soothing Yoga For Stressful Times
9 Week Multi-Faceted Course: July 6 - September 5, 2020
Audio + Video + Outdoors + Online
Put the screens away, close your eyes and turn your focus inward as you are expertly guided through this series of 9 audio classes (1 per week) to soothe your psyche in these stressful times. At your convenience and in the comfort of your own home, immerse yourself in classes for Anxiety, Insomnia, Neck & Shoulder Tension and more. We will move, breathe, meditate, slow down our thoughts and practice present moment awareness. Learn new tools and cultivate healthy habits to navigate these stressful times. Choose to stream (Christy's) Hatha or Vinyasa sequences or (Christina's) Yin sequences.
Are you more of a visual learner? Or maybe you'd like a little variety? Enjoy a *NEW* Video Library of Christy's classes (Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin) and meditations, for all registered students to use at their convenience during the 9-week course. New classes are added frequently, and include sequences from the Soothing Yoga for Stressful Times course and more.
Miss seeing your yoga community and having your teacher keep an eye on your form? Let’s try out some outdoor pool-side yoga classes in my backyard! Space will be limited for social-distancing purposes. Open to all registered students, but you must reserve a spot. Be on the look-out for announcements of these *pop-up* classes throughout this 9-week course.
Cultivating Compassion in Challenging Times
I have been waiting for my chance to channel Oprah and her Super Soul Sunday series, and here it finally is! I am so excited to offer registered students a chance to learn from my own spiritual teacher, John Earle, during this course. Each week, John will be offering a ½ hour inspirational talk and meditation practice via Zoom. You can join live and have the ability to interact with John directly, or you can listen to the recording of each workshop at your convenience from our shared Dropbox folder. Topics include Awareness, Personal Responsibility, Inner Work, Action and more. Read more about John and this weekly online course here.
You will have access to all of these offerings during this 9-week course.
Early Bird Registration By June 26 -- $145
After June 26 -- $155

Ann Arbor's Original Vinyasa! This alignment-enhanced style of Vinyasa offers a practice that is fluid and fun, but at the same time safe and sustainable. Increase your strength, flexibility and memory in this heat-building style by learning the sequence and then flowing on your own!
Good for all levels, especially those wanting a great stretch.
Yin Yoga has been coined the "quiet practice." A variety of leg, hip, back and shoulder stretches are held for 3-5 minutes in an attempt to go deep into the muscles and connective tissue of the body. Use breath and awareness as tools to cultivate mindfulness and deep relaxation.
