WELCOME TO YOGALEENA SCHOOL
Yogaleena School is a beautiful space for inspired learning, intimate connection, and meaningful transformation. Our new yoga pods – small group classes that follow an inspired curriculum of poses and themes each semester – are a revolutionary way to experience and integrate yoga into real life!
Yogaleena School is for students who are ready to dive deep into their practice, expand their understanding of yoga beyond the physical, and apply its wisdom to find more freedom, creativity, vibrancy, and joy in their lives.
If you’re ready to take your practice to the next level – on and off our mat – you’re in the right place!
Yoga is such a rich, multi-faceted practice that extends far beyond the physical movements, and I’m delighted that Carolina has chosen to offer a space where students can explore it together. The new pod structure honors the holistic, ancient practice of yoga not just as a physical activity but as a paradigm for life. Often, there is such a focus on the asanas in conventional studios that students don’t reach the deep, philosophical roots of yoga unless they study on their own or pursue a teacher training program. Yogaleena’s pods make all that knowledge accessible and communal, and being able to begin or continue the yoga journey through comprehensive study alongside a meaningful, physical practice is a beautiful thing. – Paige P.
INTRODUCING YOGALEENA SCHOOL YOGA PODS
What is the difference between a regular yoga class and a Yogaleena School Pod?
- Studio Pods are limited to 8 students in order to offer more personalized instruction and individual attention.
- Studio and Virtual Pods follow a curriculum of poses or themes during a semester to ensure you’re not only practicing, but learning every week. Each pod’s focus and curriculum is different so you can get your anatomy fix one day and dive into Ayurveda the next!
- Most pods are 75-90 min to allow time for questions, workshop-style learning, individual assists, and discussion.
Our mission at Yogaleena School is to provide students with magical, unique, and transformative experiences that make a difference in their days, and hopefully their lives. The format of our pods allows us to share the wisdom of yoga beyond what we can in a regular class, and explore the practice in a more meaningful way.
Our Unlimited Yogaleena School membership gives students maximum flexibility to explore a wide range of yoga styles and deepen their learning in the areas of study that interest them most – from anatomy to Ayurveda to philosophy to the chakra system. Enrollment in our school is like enrolling in a 200-hour yoga teacher training with more electives that focus on deepening your personal practice vs. teaching others!
We invite you to experience yoga in a whole new way! Our new yoga pods, limited to 8 participants, give students the opportunity to deep dive into a wide variety of skills and concepts, ranging from biomechanics to Ayurveda to creativity and leadership! Each pod includes a delicious asana practice, guided pranayama/meditation, and dedicated time to explore a specific pose or topic alongside a supportive tribe of like-hearted seekers. Unlike a yoga class you might find elsewhere, our pods give you the full experience of movement, breath, meditation, wisdom, and community.
“When carving stone, the sculptor removes everything that is not the statue. The art of revealing beauty lies in removing what conceals it. So, too, wholeness exists within us. Our work is to chisel away at everything that is not essence, not Self.” – Judith Hanson Lasater
Yoga is a practice aimed at transforming our relationship to our planet, to each other, and to ourselves. We come to our mats to shed the layers that conceal our true selves, connect with the wisdom within, and learn to lead our lives with purpose, authenticity, compassion, and joy. At Yogaleena School, we are committed to helping you evolve your practice from an activity to a lifestyle that truly supports you on this journey.
WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING
“I will never forget the first time I came to Yogaleena– I had been looking for a yoga home, and when I walked in, everyone was so warm and friendly. Bella ran over and sat in my lap, and everything felt just right. (It was like I finally found my Goldilocks studio!) I’m so glad that I followed my instincts and kept coming back… It has truly changed my life in the best way! – Paige P.
“Yogaleena School brought me back to my yoga practice. I had taken a step back from my practice for a couple of years, yet during the last few months I found myself wanting to spend more time being intentional with my movement. Nervous to go back in to a studio with such a long time off the mat, Yogaleena School has given me my confidence back. I am so grateful for the ability to ask questions and try new (and old!) poses in such a supportive environment. Kelsey’s 90 min pod has been such a fun exploration of movement, intention, and education! I am thrilled to be a part of Yogaleena and so happy to have found a home.” – Marie Parisot
“The weekly 90 min class I attend at Yogaleena School has easily become the best part of my week. Not only do I get a good practice in, I get to connect with other people who are looking to learn more and have fun. We are constantly learning from one another and I love that we don’t take the class too seriously. Yes we are all there to deepen our practice, but we also get to take the chance to laugh and enjoy our time. In just a few classes, I have already begun thinking about my practice in a new way. I have tried poses I never thought I could do and look forward to all of the new ones to come!” – Erika Kalsi
