is YOGA is a studio inspired by the hearts and teachings of many on the path of
self-study. It is a community to Practice Yoga and Yoke!

"Being Yoked Is Yoga"

isYOGA was inspired by the teachings of yoga and life’s changes to offer community for those in self inquiry towards empowerment in relationship on and off the mat.  Yoga practices physical and beyond continuously help me to connect back to faith.  This faith is the pillar to share yoga in and outside of our home.  “is YOGA” is my role first as student, then as a guide honoring the sacred traditions of Yoga.  Namaste, Chae.
