Lori Finch, owner of Yoga North Atlanta, has established a warm
welcoming environment drawing a set of followers who feel more like a
community. Her humor, fun attitude, and empathic concern for her
students is a bond that is hard to find in most yoga studios.
Yoga North Atlanta offers Ashtanga-based classes that provide mental
and physical challenges for students of all skill levels. It is
Lori’s belief that the yoga practice belongs to the student. All
classes at Yoga North Atlanta are designed to help students develop a
safe, enjoyable and life-long practice.
Teacher Training classes are also offered at Yoga North Atlanta. Many
of Lori’s students have gone on to become teachers, including several
that now teach at the studio. They continue Lori’s tradition of
making yoga safe, fun, and accessible to yogis of all levels.
Yoga North Atlanta is located in Duluth, Georgia, 30 minutes north of Atlanta.

Veera Yoga, located in Roseville, CA, is a place where it's students come for a little TLC... Truth, Love, and Compassion, that is! A power vinyasa studio where it's community is encouraged to be honest, not only about where they are on a physical level, but how they are feeling on a mental and emotional level as well. A place where Love reigns supreme! A safe space where the practice of these principles is done with compassion. Compassion for each other, compassion for the community (Veera participates in raising money for multiple yearly causes and by frequently adopting animals at the Farm Sanctuary - a vegan inspired home for rescued farm animals), but most importantly it encourages compassion for the self. The staff and teachers at VEERA recognize the importance of honoring each person’s unique situation in any given moment. It is only when we are able to look at life's struggles through the eyes of Truth, Love, and Compassion that awareness grows and change is able to take place. A strong physical practice coupled with some chanting and ancient wisdom help to lower the barriers that keep us from living this authentic life. VEERA yoga not only welcomes beginners and advanced yogis alike, but offers a variety of monthly workshops including pranayama, healthy eating, organic gardening, Ashtanga and more!

In 2007, co-owners of The Yoga Center of Indiana began an unprecedented journey that has led them down a path of unexpected twists and turns with no end in sight.
Karen Fox and Heather Thomas both shared one vision, not just another a yoga studio in Indianapolis, Indiana but to build a community. A sanctuary without dogma, mirrors, or perfect poses. A place you could breathe in...
Heather and Karen spent 12 weeks driving five hours to Detroit, Michigan to train with renowned yoga teacher, Jonny Kest. One week after graduating from teacher training, Karen and Heather opened The Yoga Center of Indiana. TYC seemed to fill a much needed void in the Indianapolis Yoga community. Bringing equal parts of heat, music, flowing vinyasa sequences, and encouraging themes to each class. TYC is a community, open to ONE and all.
In 2010, TYC2 was opened in a near north side of suburb of Indianapolis Carmel. It too is a unique space, located in the heart of Clay Terrace, an outdoor lifestyle center.
Karen and Heather invite you into our space to breathe, sweat and rock your body on the yoga mat! Whether you are looking to start a yoga practice, deepen your existing practice of yoga, or simply to unwind and renew your spirit, you will find The Yoga Center of Indiana a supportive and open minded community that is dedicated to your well-being.

Some things are just meant to be. Picture a pastoral, semi-rural, sailing community on the Chesapeake Bay landscaped by horses, corn and old tobacco barns with lots of warm, genuine people all around, yet no yoga studio anywhere in sight. Enter a fellow of modest means with an ardent desire to share his practice.
The resultant: Renaissance Yoga.
Established in 2005, with just a single yoga class a week, Renaissance Yoga of Galesville, Maryland has flourished into a dynamic, mobile yoga abode featuring 15 - 20 classes a week in an array of community halls and centers that dot the local landscape - not to mention corporate classes, sports team trainings at high schools and universities, and a host of other special offerings and events.
Satyam, the founding director and lead instructor of Renaissance Yoga, began his journeying into yoga in 1991 through a meditation-based practice with an emphasis on yoga lifestyle. By '93 he yearned to take it deeper.
That fall, he and his brother departed Forestville, CA & put foot to pedal on a 6-month bicycle tour from NW China over the Himalayas via the silk road / Karakoram Highway - the highest public roadway in the world (15,397 ft) - into Pakistan and across the entire Indian subcontinent. Far more than just a bike tour, it became an immersion and exploration into the culture of yoga.
Over the next ten years, Satyam spent months upon months living in ashrams (yoga houses) in India - most of the time in remote villages without any amenities, i.e. bathing outside by a well and living in a mud hut with an earthen floor, where he studied one-on-one with a yogacharya.
Renaissance Yoga aims to provide anyone and everyone their own personal gateway into this ancient practice that is a perfect complement to the demands of modern-day living. All the wonderful people who come to class, spread the word, and inspire the next great program.
Life is an experiential, sometimes thorny, yet joyous journey – and they are all part & parcel of a singular universal family. To all those aspirants & practitioners venturing about, via road or web, when in town, please know you are most welcome, www.renyoga.com.
