Spacious Heart Yoga has been operating in Goshen since 2004 with the same intention: to create a safe, welcoming space for people to discover and explore the powerful practice of yoga in the presence of community.
Spacious Heart Yoga was founded upon the belief that the practice of yoga has the potential to build peaceful and inclusive communities by inviting each person into their own power and wisdom – of their body, mind, and heart. Through each individual stepping into their own truth, joy, and aliveness, criticism and competition lose their hold. Everyone is celebrated for who they are, just as they are and the community grows stronger.
Join us in our beautiful downtown studio in your own time, in your own way. We invite you to step into the power that your body and mind hold, and we hope that you will support others in doing the same.
Specialty services available by appointment.
