ABOUT KALI YUGA YOGA

Kali Yuga Yoga studio is a gathering place built on passion, love and generosity of spirit. Kali Yuga Yoga holds its roots in the philosophy that we can use yoga as physical therapy to reverse the effects of the "Kali Yuga." Using the ancient principals of "Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space" in conjunction with the physical poses, we seek to manipulate ourselves to control both the involuntary and voluntary actions of the body, cleansing and balancing us both inside and out.

Yoga in the Park is usually taught by graduates of Kali Yuga Yoga's teacher training program, Yoga YOUniversity. This 200-hour course is designed to help you become a certified yoga instructor, and is officially approved by the Yoga Alliance. They invite students of all backgrounds and disciplines to join them for this in-depth semester study program in a small group setting. The class is designed to deepen your practice and prepare you mentally and physically to be a confident yoga instructor. Yoga YOUniversity now offers an Independent Study course for students who can't commit to a regular class schedule and want the opportunity to complete the coursework at their own pace.

Check out additional wide variety of classes, workshops and retreats offered by Kali Yuga Yoga!

SAND VOLLEYBALL

Team Green's weekly Sand Volleyball will be going on at the same time. After the yoga session, come stick your toes in the sand and jump in on a fun casual game or two. We have two courts set up with one designated for "just have fun" players and the other for more competative players. We have only two rules:

  1. No forming teams: Once a game is over, everyone gets off the court and new players begin a game.
  2. No poor sportsmanship: We're all out there to have fun. Don't take yourself (or the game) too seriously!

Alcohol is not permitted on Metro Parks properties. We enforce this rule as well.

REGISTRATION

No registration is required for this event. Just show up, and please try to be on time. If you join the class late, please do so without disrupting other yogis.
