Yoga is an amazing practice. It builds strength and flexibility. It relieves stress and calms the mind. It can be a powerful tool in recovery – helping manage or even eliminate physical pain. Yoga is a great addition to any workout regime or as a stand alone practice. There is yoga for every body, at every stage of life. The practice can always meet you right where you are. If you’re not sure, let us reassure you – yoga is for you!
We are a boutique yoga studio located in lovely, old town Granada Hills. We offer vinyasa flow yoga for everyone from beginners to advanced students, as well as gentle yoga, restorative, therapeutics (for those recovering from injuries or with limited mobility), kundalini and a cardio/yoga fusion. In addition, we have specialized workshops every month including a monthly healing sound bath! Check out the schedule page for more information and to book a class (we can always get you set up at the studio, too). We are so thrilled to be here in Granada Hills – we’ve needed a yoga studio here for a long time and now we have one. Come on in and try a class!
About the owner, Christine LaMonica, M.S., E-RYT 500, CSCS:
I’ve been practicing yoga since 2000. I love anatomy and alignment. I enjoy teaching the details and intricacies of the poses and strive to bring that knowledge to my students. As a SmartFlow teacher, my goal is to foster intelligent and alignment based practice that will help to prevent injury and allow students to practice for a lifetime. Because I came to yoga as an athlete I have a deep appreciation for how yoga can help condition as well as restore the body, so I use both of these elements together in my teaching. I love teaching yoga, especially helping students discover that they’re actually capable of so much more than they thought! If you’ve never done yoga before, don’t worry, yoga is for anyone and everyone looking to get to know themselves and their bodies better.
