Easy Pose – Sukhasana

Yes, there is a pose in yoga called “easy pose” but sometimes it is not so easy to find a comfortable seat. You might use blankets or bolsters to make the pose more comfortable. Once you find your “seat” this pose will help calm the mind while also building strength in your back and abdomen.

Our Team of Teachers

Our team of well-trained instructors each offer their own experience, personality and style to our leveled classes.

Tree Pose – Vrksasana

Just as a tree needs roots to establish before it reaches high, maintaining one-legged balance is important for all of us. Tree pose teaches variations that you can practice almost anywhere – maybe even while brushing your teeth, riding the T or doing the dishes.

Types of Classes

At Artemis Yoga, you will find both vinyasa (flow) style yoga and Iyengar yoga classes. Each class has a level so you can practice at a pace that is just right for you. Both vinyasa and Iyengar classes provide safe and detailed alignment-based instruction of classical yoga coupled with the use of props such as blocks or blankets to help you achieve the pose.

  • In vinyasa yoga, you will find sun salutations and instructions to inhale in as you reach up, exhale as you fold forward, etc.
  • With Iyengar yoga, classes are taught in a skillful, well-sequenced, thematic way with precise instruction, demonstration and use of props for modifying postures.

We hope you find that all our classes are a safe place to build strength of body and calmness of mind.  If you are uncertain of which class to take, ask us! We also offer a restorative class, a ropes class and monthly meditation along with kids and youth classes as well as specialty workshops.


Basic is for those brand new to yoga as well as those who would like a class at a slower pace.

Level 1

Level 1 is for students who have a basic understanding of yoga and who would like to continue to learn proper technique and alignment. 

Level 2

Level 2 is for students with a more experienced practice or who would like a more vigorous pace or challenging practice. This class explores more sun salutations, backbends, arm balances and inversions and both the vinyasa and Iyengar classes will also teach you the building blocks of more difficult poses and sequences.


This gentle class is a moving meditation designed to help slow your body down and initiate a restorative, relaxation response.

Mountain Pose

Mountain Pose- Tadasana

Standing tall, mountain pose is a simple and yet integral standing pose that is both a starting and ending point for many poses. This pose can help remind you to maintain a steady, upright and confident posture, like a mountain, even outside of yoga class.
