Event Series Event Series: Ananda Yoga for Joy

Yoga for Joy is a beginners class dedicated to finding your center and feeling the freedom within. 

This class offers a deep and mindful practice dedicated to the flow of energy or prana in the body. The poses aid the process of  releasing trapped energy coupled with affirmations to keep the mind uplifted, helping you restore a calm and open heart and an uplifted consciousness. 

Ananda Yoga® is gentle and our instructors encourage and support appropriate modifications so all bodies can participate safely. Come early to class and speak with the instructor about your needs. 

We are taking every precaution for your safety during this Covid pandemic. The room is large and well ventilated and we use air purifiers during classes. Masks are optional. You are encouraged to bring your own equipment if you prefer. 

Melissa Heart has been teaching Ananda Yoga since 2012 as a certified Ananda Yoga instructor. She’s been with Ananda Portland since 2007 and has served in many capacities at the Temple. Currently she manages the Ananda Temple and coordinates for the Education for Life Outreach Program.

Teaching yoga has always been a joy and it has transformed my life. It has always given me more energy and a calm acceptance of what is in front of me. I love that everyone can do yoga!
