The Niroga Yoga Studio is closed.

Dear Niroga Yoga Studio Students,

With a deep bow of gratitude for all your dedication and passion that has made the Niroga Yoga Studio a sanctuary, we must share that the studio closed after the evening class on May 31st. As our final 200-hour Teacher Training program drew to a close, our weekly classes also ended. We made this change with both sorrow for our beloved yoga community and with hope, as we now redirect our focus towards the Niroga Institute, our nonprofit, bringing Dynamic Mindfulness to communities in the Bay Area, Los Angeles, Houston, New Jersey, and as far north as Nunavik, Quebec.

Thank you for all of your support of Niroga over the years. Although this phase in our journey is ending, our work continues and we are looking forward to seeing you out in the community and at our trainings.

Much Love,
BK and Amy
