Why study yoga at Eyes?
Experienced, master teachers teach here. Our extraordinary group of carefully selected teachers bring something fresh and interesting to every class. You don't just workout with a stretching, exercise leader; you learn and grow in ways you never thought possible.
We will strengthen your body safely, intelligently, slowly. We will feed your mind, heart and spirit. Each teacher is different. Each one is a shining gem carefully selected for their ability to communicate the depth of the yoga tradition.
American Yoga has been rapidly changing over the years and we are leading the way right here in Providence. At Eyes, we endlessly keep refining our practice and our teaching, open to new information and insights. We are not stuck in fundamentalism or cookie cutter yoga, which, mind you, can be powerful because it is simplistic. The truth is each person's anatomy is unique and complex, every joint orientation, bone shape, size and proportion is different from someone else's. Fundamentalist geometrical approaches to alignment ultimately do not match up with reality, but those approaches can be helpful as a starting place for inquiry.
Come try many classes with our teachers and discover the Eyes difference. We have a strong community of yoga devotees who have been following us for over a decade. Community is stronger than will power.

(Expiring classes? Boo..Hiss...The old way was to buy mulitple class packages, but the classes expire in a few weeks. Then the bad karma starts....Students feel guilty with themselves or get angry at the studio if they are not granted an extension. We wind up granting endless extensions. .....YUK.)

New Year's Eve
"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity."
