Santosha Yoga is a New Mexico Non-Profit yoga studio with an emphasis in yoga therapy since 2007. Yoga therapy is empowering the individual practitioner toward health and well-being through the philosophy and practice of Yoga. Our classes are open to all levels of practitioners including prenatal yoga. We strive to provide a safe and conscious environment for our clients. We provide mats, blocks, straps, bolsters and blankets.
Our mission is to bring Yoga to the Taos community to increase physical and emotional health, relaxation and general contentment through all of life’s experiences.
Santosha means “contentment” in Sanskrit, which is what we strive to cultivate in our community by making yoga available.
Our classes are alignment-based and focus on injury prevention and intelligent execution of asana so that one can knowledgeably re-pattern and strengthen ones body and mind. We do not advocate one style of yoga or lineage of yoga. Our classes attempt to offer a variety of styles with experienced teachers. In fact, you may find that we are exploring the edge of what yoga is and incorporating different principles of movement therapy in our classes.
What makes a class unique to Santosha Yoga?
- Inclusivity of everyone and non-lineage based teaching.
- Therapeutic style with knowledgeable teachers (anatomy and physiology proficient).
- Safe environment—“Surrounded in a lavender womb/orb of love”.
- Green space (toxic free zone).
We also offer many yoga items in our Eco-friendly boutique. We carry second hand yoga wear, books, mats and props, and clothing from organic and environmentally friendly yoga lines.
In addition to offering yoga classes, Santosha Yoga is committed to the art of Seva. “Seva” is a Sanskrit word meaning “selfless service” or work performed without any thought of reward or repayment. In ancient India seva was believed to help one’s spiritual growth and at the same time contribute to the improvement of a community.
We subsidize the cost of all our classes in order to offer affordable rates. We offer regular scholarships with reduces Continuing Education programs and the Apprentice Program. We are now developing free on-line classes for our community. We subsidize a space for the UNM-Taos Yoga Teacher Training and Meditation programs. The total value of services given back to our community exceeded $20,000 dollars in 2014.
Drop-in: only $10 or memberships available.
