Our Yoga Instructors
Our talented tribe of yoga, mindfulness, and dance instructors come from many different backgrounds.
If you have any questions about the yoga studios at Heart of Salisbury, please don't hesitate to send us a message!
We have two yoga studio spaces that can be combined into a 1,500 sq. ft space, accommodating up to 50 yogis with their yoga mats. Our walls double as gallery space for original artwork exhibits.
We practice the eight limbs of yoga, including the ethical guidelines and personal observances of yoga, the Yamas and Niyamas. We do not use mirrors during yoga because our goal is to help you learn the pose by feeling the sensations in the body associated with each pose and committing them to your mind. Yoga at Heart of Salisbury goes beyond the physical practice, it delivers mindfulness, self-awareness, and with enough practice, we hope to help you build resilience to stress and difficult emotions.
You will not find culturally appropriated items (images and objects with significant meaning to other cultures) at our studio. It is part of our ethics to respect all cultures and religions by not using their symbols in improper ways. We respect the Eastern roots and fabric of yoga by not using its symbols as decorations and by assigning credit to where it belongs. We also respect that individuals have different belief systems and hope to make our classes, workshops, and events, comfortable for all.
