Welcome

Since its founding in 1978 by Donald Moyer, The Yoga Room has made yoga available to people of all ages and abilities. As a multi-generational community, we are concerned with encouraging proper alignment in the poses and helping students maintain a balance between strength and flexibility. With our emphasis on personalized practice, we offer alternatives for almost anyone — from children and the elderly, to those dealing with health issues and disabilities, to those who want a truly deep and challenging experience.
