Remainder of the Year

“THIS moment is not an idea. It is the only reality.” – Sadhguru We are nearing the end of a year that has affected every single person on this planet. As I reflect on what has transpired for myself personally and for the studio, I am proud of how we shifted into gear…

About Ohana Yoga Studio

Welcome to Ohana Yoga

Ohana Yoga serves as educational experiences to those wanting to include mindful practices into their lifestyle.

How we move, how we think,  how we breathe and how we speak are innervated into our sense of wellbeing and safety, right down to the cells. The body always reacts with or without your consent.  Sometimes these reactions make sense, and other times our lives can be turned upside down. When life becomes stressful, it asserts an unmanageable response to how day to day activities affect us.  It usually is because we are not prepared for ALL the variabilities of what could happen. Since we can never prepare for everything that could be presented in front of us, the only thing we can do is begin to train the body to react in a more conscious place of awareness.  To teach it to know the extremes of softness and strength, stress and rest. To understand subtle sensations and where the push and pull is in your life.   
We are available to supply opportunities for this training and education, through classes and programs, in two ways:  In the local studio OR online through our various options.

Safety Policies

Please read our COVID Safety Information 

Ohana Studio Policies

We are pleased to announce that we have the go ahead to open our doors again for in house classes.  Yoga is about you feeling the safest in your own body and mind.  Ohana wants you to feel that AND the same about your surroundings.   Therefore, for your safety and comfort, we will have BOTH in house AND Zoom classes, as well as the Ohana On Demand platform as another option. We can only hold up to 13 people per class, and even then it never fills to that capacity unless it is a special event.

The 1000 square foot space is marked out with places for your mat.  We usually have one to two classes a day.  One every single morning, and one most nights.  There are HOURS between classes where there is no one in the space, and since the studio is cleaned after each class, there is plenty of time for any germs to be killed before another class resumes.  Our studio is unlike most other public spaces, where a large volume of people from far and wide are coming through all day every single day.  We have a limited amount of people (mostly the same familiar faces) coming through once a day.
If you are missing the studio, and want to proceed with small classes and not a big crowd, we have that option for you now, or you can also schedule a private or semi private lesson. We have a lot of information to share below so please take your time reading it, and do let me know if you have any questions!


Class Details and Information

  • We can fit 8 students, in-house, at a time - however this has only happened once since March of 2020.   Pre-registration will be required for a spot.  After 8 students have signed up, you will be on a waitlist for the in-house class  (Although Zoom is still an option for ALL classes right now) .
  • In order to enter the studio, you will need to have your name on the roster (use the app or website to login), and will need to fill out an illness liability waiver either prior OR when you come in house.   Here is the form, should you want to fill it out ahead of time.     We will not be requiring masks inside the building or during class, but if it makes you comfortable to have one one while entering and getting to your mat, please wear one.
  • The floor will be marked with blue tape to show the areas of where mats can go.
  • We will be cleaning all surfaces touched, in between classes.
  • After class, we will not be congregating.   Based on your comfort, you are more than welcome to exit immediately after the class is over.
  • We offer classes with extremely limited props that will be cleaned afterward.
  • The classes like Restorative and Yin, will continue from Zoom for the time being, so you are able to use your props from home.
  • We will not be offering hands on adjustments for the foreseeable future.
  • We will be teaching for you in person AND the members on Zoom, therefore time is split between both.  We do apologize, but it is necessary for the time being to be fair to those who have health issues and are not able to be in house.



For your safety, we have the following items and protocols in place

  • A high end air purifier in the building to help keep the air clean.
  • A LARGE Himilayan salt lamp that is on all the time to clean and purify the air.
  • The biomat that sends off negative ions,  for cleaning the air as well.
  • A diffuser with an essential oil that will help kill germs in the air.
  • We will be cleaning door knobs and the bathroom in between classes
  • We have a LARGE open stairwell that allows for plenty of area for personal space.
  • We have a circular upstairs, so there is opportunity for two ways of an exit point.
  • We have lots of windows for proper air ventilation (air conditioners for the hot summer), and a large overhead fan.
  • We have lots of plants to keep the air even more energized and purified for the attention we place on breath.
  • We have two sinks for washing of hands.



Winter Policies:

Please be careful in our parking lots. The parking lots are owned by the town and are plowed as such, although they can get icy as they flood in different places.   Please be careful getting out of your car, up the walkways, and into the building.   We try to sand the ramp and steps as much as we can.  Please tread carefully.  There are railings on the wooden ramp. 
Please do not feel the need to shovel.  We will take care of it for you.   
Class cancellations: 
We try not to cancel classes due to weather.   If anything the instructor will head in and can always teach through Zoom.  If we needed to cancel, we will call regulars that usually come, or anyone on the roster of the class.   If the class is definitely canceled, it will be shown on the app or website as canceled.  You also have the option of calling/texting me directly to ask at 603-748-1539.  


Signing Up is Required to Attend

Here is how the classes will now look. A class at the same time on the schedule  will be labeled In-House Functional Strength AND Zoom - Function strength.    We are able to provide you the same class, but will feel different..   The in house one is in a studio that is clear, clean, and charged with energy and support.  The one at home, is for your convenience, comfort and housed sanitation.
This may be confusing at first, so please don't hesitate to ask before you 'come' to a class!
