We heal in connection

Yoga - from the Sanskrit "yuj"
to yoke, to unite, to connect

Chronic stress can leave us feeling exhausted and isolated in our experience. Knowing we are not alone and connecting with others who share our reality, can help us move forward in our healing journey. ​

Dr. Vaidya's therapeutic group yoga programs harness the power of community to help you reconnect with yourself and your well-being.​
