About Shenandoah Yoga
Shenandoah Yoga was founded in 2006 to serve the Harrisonburg area yoga community. We offer the highest quality classes taught by experienced, certified instructors who have a variety of different yoga backgrounds and personal practices. We don't adhere to any one particular approach to yoga, but instead are inspired by many different yoga traditions.
Over the years, a half dozen teachers have regularly taught our classes such as Hatha, Vinyasa, Prenatal, Gentle, Restorative and Kids' Yoga. Other special offerings have included Yoga for Healthy Backs and Yoga for Cyclists and Runners to name a few.
