Modern Hatha Yoga
Natural Movement Yoga
All of these are a good description of what you will experience
when you join the Rexburg Yoga ongoing Tues and Thur classes.
Education of our students to be responsible for their
own health and well-being is a priority.
Rexburg yoga has been bringing a consistent
yoga practice to this area since 1999.
Beginners welcome at any time. We have mats and props to use.
At Rexburg yoga we want students to feel good – body, mind and emotions.
It takes time, attention and continued practice. Join us.
While its true that a yoga practice does not provide all the movement a body needs, it does provide most of the natural human movements including the squat. What’s the big deal about squatting? Continue reading →
Yoga is the only kind of movement one needs. Is that true? Let’s look at a standard, garden-variety yoga class: inside a room, on a mat, for about an hour, two or three times a week.

While achieving an amazing balancing feat like we sometimes see in advertising is unrealistic for the average person, a reasonable expectation for a regular yoga practice is improved overall balance.
While there are many causes for loss of balance, a common one as we age is “use it or lose it.” As busy and distracted as we are during an average day, we probably don’t take time to mindfully balance and move out of the normal plane of movement. A regular yoga practice can help use and strengthen those tissues, muscles, nerves, and bones needed to balance.
A frequent excuse for those who want to take a yoga class but feel inadequate to even start is that they are not flexible enough or that they cannot touch their toes. So we will start the year busting that myth! Continue reading →
We’ve all seen them – adverts or magazines with an outlandish yoga posture, or yoga used to sell products. Many of these are totally unrealistic and frankly ridiculous. As I find them around the internet, I will post a few. These images contribute to the expectations we have for a yoga practice. Continue reading →
If you will be coming to the Full Moon Partner Yoga Practice, this is the link to an audio version of the ending meditation. We will be outside at the Nature Park at the area where the climbing toys are located . The weather is always an unknown factor, but hopefully we will see the moon at the end of the practice.
