Empowering you to create greater health & well-being through Yoga!
Welcoming you home!

Mountain Spirit Yoga opened its doors last week after 4 months of being closed! It was such a delight to see students come back through those doors and take their places for practice. Although socially distanced, that intervening space couldn't dim the light of connection between us as we shared experiences of the past months apart. My heart swelled with each returning student, and class by class a sense emerged of reweaving the threads of the studio back together into whole cloth. I eagerly await each one of you to return when you are ready, until we are completely whole once more.

Holding you in infinite light and love,
(image is a heart chakra mandala - symbol of wholeness and connection at the heart level)

Your in-studio experience has changed - New Guidelines

MSY follows all restrictions and guidelines set by the state of Maryland and the CDC for your safety. While in the studio, please
  • wear a mask (during practice is optional)
  • wash your hands or sanitize often
  • maintain social distance

All Classes last 60 minutes to limit time together and ensure enough time for cleaning afterward
  • please bring your own mat, water bottle (filled), and other props you like to use (beach towel instead of a blanket, peanut or tennis balls, straps);
  • Most studio props are not available at this time. MSY has limited amounts of mats, mat bags, blocks, peanuts and therapy balls for sale.

MSY is tweaking its registration system to offer you the greatest amount of flexibility and offer you three ways to practice with us.

  • All classes are 60 minutes long, whether they are in the studio, at the park, or videos.
  • Due to limited class sizes and numbers of classes this summer, there are NO drop-ins or make-ups allowed.
  • Everyone must register for each class in advance. The schedule will be posted online each Saturday for registration for the following week.
  • If you have a pre-existing 3, 5, or 10 class pass from before March, you must now pre-register for classes instead of dropping in, but they are already paid for by your pass.

Fees - Pay in advance online or by check
I n Studio - ALL Classes are pay per class (except pre-closure 3, 5, and 10 class passes)

How to Register - Please note changes!
Everyone registers each week for park classes and videos. NEW this week - you can now register for in-studio classes through the end of July.
  • Weekly schedules will be available on the registration system on Saturday morning by 8AM for the upcoming week - this includes in-studio, at the park and video classes
  • Register for the class or classes of your choice - in-studio, park, or video
  • Please register ASAP for Monday classes, so we know who is coming!
  • You must register at least 2 hours before an in-studio or park class
  • Cancellation - if you must cancel for an unforeseen reason, please give us 24 hours notice to offer your place in the class to another student. You fee will remain as a credit in your account. This is especially important since there are only 6 places in each class.

This system keeps all of us on our toes each week, but allows you to come to classes according to your schedule and preferences!
