WELCOME TO HOUSE OF YOGA.
SERVING THE BERKLEY AND SURROUNDING COMMUNITY SINCE 2006
We are happy you found us!
Welcome to the studio. We have been in Berkley since 2006 and are delighted to have you join our community. COME PRACTICE!
We are an intimate yoga studio with a big heart, located in Downtown Berkley, MI. Our teachings are directly from the lineage of Krishnamacharya. All classes offer depths into the philosophy of yoga through references of The Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali's Yoga Sutra.
Asana, posture practice, is the primary tool we use to explore the mind, body and spirit. The goal: to be steady and joyful in each moment, each breath. While developing a healing relationship with the Earth.

Breath is the primary teacher. (Meet the Teachers at the studio here)
We are made of sound + vibration.
We tune up our bodies with mantra, mantra + music that is healing.
This is why we chant in our classes and why we hold Kirtans regularly.
Ōm Namo Bhagavatē Vāsudevāya
Krishna who is known as the all attractive one, is an avatar of Lord Vishnu. An avatar is one who descends from the spiritual universe into the material universe by his own will.
Vishnu is the preserver of life and brings balance when the world is in need.
He is known by thousands of names,
which help us remember God and our connection to him/her.
In the Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna calls Krishna Vāsudeva many times. Vāsu means “life” and deva means “God or light”, so Vāsudevāya means that Supreme/God who resides in all of life. Krishna explains that to chant his name putting your heart and mind into it, he will respond to that calling. This mantra is known as a mukti, liberation mantra, and like all mantras, it has a magical spell/formula for spiritual freedom.
