WyrdYoga is the home of The Yoga/Pilates Studio in Strasburg Va. We are located in a lovely town in the Shenandoah Valley. It is an area filled with beauty, history, kind neighbors, music, wine, and charm. The studio is located in our 1930's Arts and Crafts style home, which adds to the cozy feel of your experience. Our yoga is a blend of various styles from Vini and Shiva Ray to Hatha and Kundalini. Emphasis is placed on body mechanics, structure, correct alignment, functional movement, and utilizing yoga anatomy. Each class is unique and taught to the students' needs. No two classes are alike. Class size is small. Our flow is slow and purposeful, based on ability. Each class is distinctly different. The emphasis is on form and stretch, strength and mobility, relaxation and mindfulness. We mix Pilates with yoga and yoga with Pilates. Your class experiences will be unique, taught with a healer's expertise.
