It's time to show Niyama some love:

Niyama, since it first opened well over a decade ago, has always been a studio looking to provide yoga and create community while being committed to an idea of Karma: unselfishly trying to do some good, while not worrying about the fruits of that, and trusting in that.

SO MUCH of Niyama revolves around that. It's why every year we've had 100% of our Thanksgiving classes go straight to the Greater Chicago Food Depository, and why we work with RefugeeOne during the holidays with the Giving Tree. It's why when we choose our Karma Charities we've always looked for local, small-scale charities to work-with: where we know the money we donate truly does provide the most good from Curt's Cafe and Syd Rocks, to Feed the Dream, Designs for Dignity and all the other groups we've worked with over the years.

At a certain point though, Niyama needs a bit of love/self-care for itself, in the form of fixing up the studio so we can continue. It's not just self-care, but something that is a bit overdue. For it to succeed though, it requires help from the community that has grown here since we first opened.

Yin and Restorative Yoga with Barb

Updated Date
Saturday, March 10th from 2:30-4:30pm
$30: Register Online or pay the day of

During this two-hour session, you will spend time practicing a mix of Yin and Restorative poses (asanas). The complementary nature of these two styles of yoga will help you to cre-ate a deep sense of balance within. Both practices move slowly and will focus on only a few poses throughout the session. When we slow down physically, we have more time to devote to our internal world. These practices assist in focusing on the breath and remaining in the present moment.

Once you are warm and have found your breath, you will shift from a state of doing to a state of being. Julie guides the Yin portion of class using seated and reclining poses with long passive holds to create deeper flexibility, more efficient energy flow in the body, and energetic release.
