About our Studio:
Red Earth Yoga Center (REYC) is a yoga studio dedicated to the transformative and healing practice of yoga, something that I have been fortunate enough to experience first hand. Years ago, I found myself in a highly competitive industry facing seemingly relentless obstacles. To succeed often meant grueling hours, mind-blowing legalities, and high end stakes. There was simply no room for error. The stress was enormous, but so were the benefits. It was a business that afforded me the ability to make my own hours so that I (or my husband) could be home with our children. As a mother and wife, I was overwhelmed, struggling for that elusive balance between a profitable career and a happy home life. The struggle was REAL! I began looking for healthy ways to DE-STRESS! I had always been active. Ballet, dance, and gymnastics were an integral part of my early years, and of course as adults we had the gym memberships which were used heavily at the beginning of each year, and then slowly waned as we rolled into the summer months. We lived in Florida so there were always walks on the beach, swimming, surfing, fishing, boating and other outdoor activities. I loved rollerblading, playing racquetball, and even ran marathons, but other than dance and gymnastics, nothing ever really felt like it was "my thing." That is, until I walked in to my first yoga class. I was desperate for peace, tired of running, both literally and figuratively. I will never forget the feeling I had leaving class that day. Although I had never done yoga before, I felt like I had "come home." There was something so familiar, and right, and sacred about it. I knew intuitively, at THAT moment, that my body and mind and spirit needed healing and that THIS practice would be the answer. I knew that instead of running away, (from life and all of its complexities) that I needed to slow down, stop even, and pay attention to that "still small voice" inside of me that said " if you don't take care of you, you can't take care of them." My family needed me to be healthy! I knew I needed work! I was always so concerned about their health that I often neglected my own. I began diligently going to yoga practice, sometimes twice a day. My body, my mind and my spirit thirsted for it, and I soaked it up like a sponge. I found peace through yoga. I found healing through yoga. I reconnected (and still do) to the One who created me, through Yoga. It sounds simple, doesn't it? Trust me, it wasn't. It didn't happen overnight, and there are still things that stress me out and make me angry. I'm human. But I am a much more peaceful person than I was back in those difficult times. I now know how to manage stress and how to treat my body like the holy vessel it is. I am healthy. I am fit. I am stronger than I have ever been and it is all because of Yoga. Yoga has taught me so much on this journey and I want nothing more than to share it all with you! Yoga CAN change your life. All you have to do is begin.

At Red Earth Yoga Center, we practice warm (not hot) Vinyasa, Hatha & Ashtanga Style Yoga. Most (but not all) of our classes are heated in a studio to 85 degrees. The warmth helps you sustain a healthy amount of sweat which is a natural detox for the body, and also helps to build flexibility. The warmth helps to reduce gently tension and safely raises your heartbeat. Always remember that warm muscles mean a safer practice. All of our classes are non-competitive. We offer powerful flows for those that like the intensity, as well as slower, softer practice that don't require so much energy. Our classes are casual and friendly, (we don't care what you wear and don't believe there is such a thing as a "Yoga Body. Yoga is for EVERY body, regardless of shape, size, or color. Be happy in the skin you are in! Be confident that the teaching at Red Earth Yoga Center is that of QUALITY. Our Instructors are highly trained and are Certified.
