Do you want to explore a deeper practice of yoga? Deepen your relationship to yourself and your practice by enrolling in our 200-hour training program through Yoga Alliance.

During your training, you will develop a proficiency through practice, and be exposed to a wide variety of different styles--Aerial, Budokon, Restorative, etc. The sessions kick off on Sept. 9 and continue until December, allowing your training to fit into your busy schedule.

This is what sets us apart as an accredited 200 Hour Teacher Training Program.

are you ready for summer?

Get rid of those winter blues by giving your child something to look forward to this summer - Summer Camp at the Y! When kids experience Y Camp, they experience something new every day. Like the power of a positive mentor, the confidence that comes from trying (and succeeding!), and the importance of healthy, long-lasting friendships. Of course, they don't know this - they just think they're having a whole lot of fun!

From water activities and sports to creative arts, each day is packed with age-appropriate activities, new friends and personal growth. In addition to traditional and specialty camp activities, we are uniquely devoted to physical activity, water safety and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) education. Few environments will foster your child’s mind, body and spirit than at the Y.

Check out our Summer 2016 Camp Brochure to see the exciting themes we're offering! Registration is already open, so register online or at the branch to get your child's first pick.
