Ferncrest Center for Yoga and Health

for health-related activities or classes. 
Contact Peg for more information.



Classes are suitable for beginning and intermediate students. Experienced teachers address individual students' needs in a small class environment. New students and those returning to yoga who are seeking a gentle, safe experience are welcome.

In continuing the traditions of our teachers, we offer our classes in a series united by a theme. Our intention is to provide a deepening yoga practice to our students and therefore drop-in classes are not offered. However, students with previous yoga experience who would like to sample a class are welcomed to call the yoga instructor to set that up.

Our students say:

                              "Yoga is...

... a gift to my body and spirit."
... peace and harmony."
         ... developing gentle strength."
... the oasis of calm."....

Why Do Yoga?
At the very least, yoga teaches you techniques to keep the body flexible and strong; yet yoga is so much more than exercise. In addition to helping you stay flexible and strong, yoga can give you the tools you need to calm restless thoughts, support mental clarity and confidence, encourage self-acceptance and invite deep stillness.

Why Do Yoga at Ferncrest Center?

At Ferncrest Center the classes are small and our highly experienced teachers approach their classes with student safety as a top priority.

Students are encouraged to pay attention to their own bodies in order to work at their own pace. An attitude of non-judgment and compassion is encouraged.
