About Shenandoah Yoga
Shenandoah Yoga was founded in 2006 to serve yoga students in Harrisonburg. Today, Shenandoah Yoga offers classes to students around the world. All classes are taught by a certified instructor with 20+ years of experience in a variety of yoga styles. Classes don't adhere to any one particular approach to yoga; instead, they are inspired by many different yoga traditions.
After 16 years of teaching based out of a much beloved space in downtown Harrisonburg, Shenandoah Yoga closed its bricks-and-mortar studio in July 2022 and now operates as a mobile yoga studio. Most classes are currently taught remotely online. In-person classes also happen outside during late spring, summer, and early fall. Private yoga sessions and workshops for individuals and groups -- indoors or outdoors, online or in-person -- are available year-round upon request.
Over the years, Shenandoah Yoga has regularly taught 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, just to name a few.
