We start from the premise that Yoga should be accessible and relevant. Yoga Mechanics teaches alignment yoga based on the foundations of anatomy and biomechanics. Each class is approachable and challenging all in one. We aim to educate you about your body and empower you through action. Our classes are woven with rich and contemplative content that draws you deeper into the physical practice. We hold a healthy space for you to consider your body and mind through a physical practice.
Yoga for anyBody and the application for each individual WILL be different. Our staff is highly trained to facilitate movement in your body, encouraging both strength and flexibility. Health begins one movement at a time. Let's do it.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Because Mechanics work. Having some tools, rules + principles about our bodies facilitates a deeper understanding of our experience in the world. We have witnessed how simple education about our anatomy leads to major transformation. Our focus is beyond the poses themselves as we believe in the benefit of movement AND thought woven together. We hold a space for this, everyday. So that you, we, everybody has a place to practice being themselves. To us, there is nothing more empowering.

Do you see the change? The Practice Project is now The PROCESS Project. Why the change?
Well, as we prepared for this summer's event, something about the word practice didn't sit right with us. Practice is a word we hear often in the world of yoga, and it implies some state of finality, achievement, attainment. When we thought about it, PROCESS is more true to the intention of this summer project. Process validates exactly where you are. It honors your ability to act in all situations. Process speaks to the experience of how even when we complete one step, one Project, there is always more.
So this summer we want to know....What PROCESS are you in? What process are you committed to?
The answer can be anything from the process of handstand to the process of forgiveness. We hope the resonance of Process versus Practice feels better to you. Because life is ongoing and that is the gift.
Let's engage the summer! Together! THE PROCESS PROJECT TEAMS!!!
The Process Project is a Free Community Event for all of our YM students. Here is how it works:
1. Decide whether you are committing individually or with a TEAM.
2. Name your Process Project and your TEAM. For instance: "I am working on the process of full wheel."
3. Choose how many classes you will complete between 7/1/17 - 9/1/17. The options are 10, 20, or 30 classes. If you are working with a Team, your team must collectively complete the classes. Register in the studio!
4. Take a picture with us at the studio and tag us on Instagram @yogamechanics and Facebook. Don't forget to #ProcessProject2017. Share as many pictures of your project as you wish!
5. If, you, or your team reach your class goal, then you/your team will be entered in a drawing to win the grand prizes.
6. The grand prizes are.... for completing 10 classes, you can win 3 months of unlimited yoga. For 20 classes, 6 months. For 30 classes, an ENTIRE YEAR. Teams must split prizes, work together, win together.
7. Winners will be announced at our Fall Celebration on Friday, September 22nd, 2017. To win, you/your team must be at the celebration. Other prizes will be awarded, gifts and goodies from local vendors! Yoga with live music as well.
8. HAVE FUN!
200 HOUR RYT EDUCATION PROGRAM | LEVEL 1, TEACHER TRAINING
The Yoga Mechanics 200 Hour RYT | Level 1, Teacher Training will give you the tools you need to be an effective and confident Yoga Educator. We know the depth of becoming a leader in the Yoga Community. We believe that when you invest in education, you are investing in yourself, which is why we have worked to create a program that honors your time + investment. Learning new things takes time to assimilate. You will have the space to learn and grow in this 12 month program.
Becoming a Yoga Educator involves more than just learning names of poses. We will cover each facet of the 4 Yogic formulas: Asana, Meditation, Philosophy and Pranayama. Each provide skills that open avenues for self-reflection. Honoring context and history, we will study the Mahabharata, Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads + Yoga Sutras. We will discuss at length, Tantric philosophy, its differentiation from a dual/classical perspective and the ways it is applicable today. We will learn to engage with ourselves from a place of wholeness and study how this is mirrored in our body through Anatomy, Kinesiology and Biomechanics.
300 HOUR RYT EDUCATION PROGRAM | LEVEL 2, TEACHER TRAINING
Teaching Yoga is a craft, an artform. Like any good art, it is only for those who are willing to do the work. Our training starts from the premise that consistency over time creates potency. What we practice, we embed in ourselves and our students. Industry dictates that you are a full blown Yoga Teacher with just 200 hours under your belt. Respectfully, we disagree. In what other career is only 200 hours enough training? We look at those first training hours as your foundation and more education is absolutely necessary. No matter what style of Yoga you teach, this training is a deepening course purposefully created to empower teachers with practical and effective teaching tools. We will offer you a rich set of skills to feel grounded in a seat of leadership with integrity and context.
The Yoga Mechanics 300 Hour RYT | Level 2 Teacher Training is designed to make you a more effective teacher. No matter what your background of Yoga is, you will improve radically. Broken down into 7 modules, each part builds on the previous. For this reason, this is a closed training. Once we begin, the group is contained and will develop together.
Almost all of our teachers are E-RYT 500, which is the highest level recognized by the Yoga Alliance. Our staff far surpasses industry standards when it comes to continuing education (many have over 3000+ hours of study) and have between 3-10+ years of teaching experience.
We believe that well educated / well practiced teachers make better teachers, hands down. We are here to provide a safe and structured class that offers you a mechanical advantage for success.
