Welcome to Uttara Yoga!

yoga roanoke uttara
Uttara Yoga Studio is a safe, nurturing yoga community located in the Sanctuary at Five Points in Roanoke, Virginia. Our goal is to help our students to become healthier, happier and more comfortable with their bodies; to teach them ways to calm and focus their minds; to help them become stronger and more vital; and re-connect to their inner divine light.

What does the name mean?
Uttara (oo-ta-ra) (Sanskrit); other; crossing over.
Yoga (yo-gah) (Sanskrit); union; to yoke; integration

Most people experience “union” or are “yoked” to their jobs, families, responsibilities, communities, possessions.  At Uttara Yoga Studio, discover the joy of union with the “other” – yourself.

ABOUT HATHA YOGA
 

Sunday, March 22,
2:00 – 4:30 pm
Body Positive Yoga Workshop with Amber Karnes.
In this workshop, we'll explore things like: How to keep your boobs out of your face, twisting and folding when you have a belly, and other "sticky spots" like sun salutations and inversions. We'll help each other find safe alignment and freedom in poses, learn to modify yoga to fit our bodies, and have some laughs along the way. Yoga teachers who'd like to learn modifications for your larger students are also welcome!

In Amber's classes and workshops, students of all shapes and sizes will find tips, tricks, and modifications to make yoga asana work for their unique body, instead of being squished into poses for the sake of form over function. She emphasizes safe alignment and mindful transitions, and gives each student permission to honor the body they bring to the mat today, while being empowered to learn about the body's intelligence and power.

Fee: $45.00
