Welcome to A Yogi Kitchen's Delicious Yoga community.
We believe that yoga should be accessible to all, so all of our regular and Pop-Up classes are donation-based.
A donation should be whatever works in your budget. Students pay once a month, once a pay-period or each time they take a class. We're pretty flexible around here.
It all adds up and helps pay my salary, keep the lightst on and the wifi glitch-free. Part of your donation helps us cook for people in our community. Join the newsletter to stay up to date with our yoga schedule, our community efforts and our monthly focus.
Our mission is to create community and help you to connect mind/body/spirit while showing up with your whole self.

Joy is not like happy. Happy comes and goes, what makes you happy shifts and changes from week to week and year to year. Joy is what you feel when you are connected, through purpose and meaning, to your core valuesJoy is about connection in the universe. Joy is that feeling you get when you do something that you haven't done in a long time and it makes you feel like you. It's that feeling of your heart bursting open and the glow radiating from head to toe.
Joy invites you to be.
Join us as we explore Joy through our yoga practice on the mat and off. We practice Seva, selfless service off the mat. It's a core practice in yoga that will help you connect to your joy.
See you on the mat!

An invigorating all-level practice that invites you to gently move from pose to pose, pausing to focus on your breath. Slow Flow helps you connect to the present moment. It strengthens, tones and defines you as well as invites you to sink deeply into longer stretches.
Each practice is a bit different, depending on our focus for the session. This Fall our intention is to connect with Joy, so expect a lot of heart-opening and deep stretches. Last session we focused on the word Strong and we'll continue some of that work se ex[ect to see some leg, arm and core transformation in September and October.
Years ago my teacher said to me, "Melissa, no one needs to be taught to push themselves. They need to learn to slow down." -Suzanne Chapek.
I've held that close to my heart and developed this class for you. Restorative Yoga teaches you to be still and present in the moment. It's the most delicious.
Perfect for beginners for its ease and accessibility, sometimes slowing down and getting quiet is also the advanced work.
Mr. BKS Iyengar brought restorative yoga to US teachers and I was lucky enough to study with Judith Lasater, one of his students. She was one of the first yogis to introduce restorative yoga to mainstream classes.
Join us for peace, healing, relaxation and comfort. Yoga props, like blankets and bolsters are helpful, but you can use household items, like beach towels, bed pillows, couch cushions and blankets to feel grounded and heal.
An easy, breezy class for absolutely any level practitioner. You'll spend most of the class on your back. For a short while you'll do sitting poses and be on your hands and knees before returning to your back.
You'll work the tension of the week out of every muscle in your body and lubricate your joints.
Increase circulation, detoxify and settle your mind.
Often a 30 minute pop-up request, however you're welcome to request it as a 60 or 75 minute session.
Wake Up Yoga helps increase circulation with breath work, helps your brain wake up and be steady and focused for your day. Physically you'll warm up, stretch and release any tightness and tension from sleeping in unhelpful positions.
You'll leave this class feeling energized and ready to tackle your day.
Slow down and be gentle with yourself. While this is a simple, slow class that everyone can do, it's also a challenge for so many.
Yin Yoga asks you to slow down, mind/body/spirit and summon the more gentle, feminine energy as you sink down and hold poses longer. You may have practiced a pose like Standing Forward Fold before, but in Yin Yoga, you'll shift your focus and just hang there, allowing gravity to help you lengthen and get grounded. Overall it's a more passive practice that leaves even seasoned practitioners feeling longer, leaner and sometimes even a little sore.
Do you love stretching? Are you a runner? Are you a cardio or lifting junkie? This could be the class that challenges you to level-up. Learning how to be a bit passive with yourself is a powerful way to shift mentally, emotionally and physically.
In yoga we believe that true health is a balance between endurance, strength and flexibility. This class helps you find that balance with the deep stretches that so many lifters and runners ignore.
