Just like anything unfamiliar to us, yoga can be a scary thing to try.
Yoga is widely practiced around the world because it helps our total well- being. It improves flexibility, perfects posture, increases muscular and cardiovascular strength, elevates mood, improves balance and creates healthy habits.
For most people, yoga conjures up images of young, athletic, hip women and men bending into impossible positions. Although it can be difficult to see yourself having the ability to practice yoga, it is for everyone regardless of age, physical condition or flexibility.
Everyone deserves a chance to feel good.
We welcome you to begin your yoga journey with us.

Each week a new dimension of the yogic practice will be discussed and practiced. Our teachers will guide you through:

Our Intro to Yoga Teacher is Alyssa Berman.
Once a beginner herself, with no past experience of sports, gymnastics, dance or any other form of exercise, Alyssa knows the feeling of nervousness that arises when walking into a yoga studio and not knowing what to expect. From her first class, where she honestly wasn’t even sure yoga was for her, to last year when she opened Bend & Breathe, she has met hundreds of people unsure of where to begin with their practice. Alyssa will show you that yoga can be practiced by anyone, help you experience the bliss of finding yourself through the beauty of mindfulness and posture alignment, and create an easy transition from beginning to group classes.
