“When your body, mind and soul are healthy and harmonious, you will bring health and harmony to those around you, and health and harmony to the world.” - BKS Iyengar
At Smiling Dog Yoga, it is our mission to help you become a healthier, happier version of yourself. And we believe yoga can help you get there. We pride ourselves on being serene, without the scene. Many of our classes have people aged between 20-80 years old and we offer classes with enough variety to allow everyone to stretch, strengthen, grow, and evolve. If you are looking to get started with us, try our New Student Intro Offer for 45 days, check out our class schedule, or drop by our front desk. Although yoga is the proverbial backbone of our business, Smiling Dog is also home to Barre, Pilates, massage therapy, our retail boutique, and coming soon our Smiling Dog Cafe. We hope that you will take some time to navigate our website to learn more about all that we have to offer, but more importantly, we hope you’ll drop in to experience the Smiling Dog community in person.
Even physiologists who don’t do yoga now agree that the practice provides benefits well beyond flexibility and relaxation. Recent research—though preliminary—shows that yoga may also improve strength, aerobic capacity, and lung function. If you practice yoga, you already knew that. But if, like others, you’ve been told by friends, family, doctors, or even other yoga students that you need to add some running for your heart or strength training for your muscles, here’s evidence that yoga is all you need for a fit mind and body.
Smiling Dog Yoga was founded in 2008. The name was chosen because who doesn’t love a smiling dog with their goofy, toothy grins? They remind us to smile, wag our tails, love each other, enjoy life, and not take ourselves too seriously. More tail wagging, less barking please!
