Under normal circumstances, our weekly schedule of classes are taught by HYS founder and director Deborah Karish DC, local Healdsburg Chiropractor, who has been teaching Hatha yoga for over thirty years. Other Yoga instructors include Marie Hirsch, Gregor Nelson, and Tia Hurley.

Classes include Beginning Yoga, Mixed-Level Yoga, Gentle Yoga and Chair Yoga, as well as monthly Yoga Intensives.
