Prior to my purchase I called and left a message.
Ms Lin returned my call and suggested I come in for a trial class. I went on the weekend and I was very pleased with the experience. The instructor was pleasant and the place was clean and inviting. I purchased more classes and started attending during the week. The during the week instructor (Tuesday/Thursday) was very welcoming to me. Her class was interesting and as awkward as I felt not having done yoga before she made me feel right at home.
I would recommend this yoga studio to anyone wanting a yoga experience .
I had a trial session and it was a work out. I felt relaxed, my muscles were loosened and the tension in my shoulders were gone. The instructor Gina was great. She was patient, encouraging and helpful through the various movements. I signed up the same night for 10 sessions to start with.

About A Chat with Daruma Yoga
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Daruma Yoga is an art of body-mind coordination that ensures physical and mental fitness as well as enhances one’s spirituality.
Here at Daruma Yoga, we believe Yoga is a way to connect the Mind and Body. We nourish both in our space, creating an atmosphere of openness to all peoples’ practices, beliefs, experiences and places in life. We open the Body with a comprehensive offering of different types of yoga for any point in the human life: From womb, through infancy, childhood, teenage years, motherhood/fatherhood, and adult years. Classes vary from super gentle, to beginners, to intermediate, to advanced.
What sets Daruma Yoga apart from others? Every class you’ll be sure to receive your daily dose of Vinyasa Krama. Vinyasa Krama means intelligently sequenced so one pose builds safely to the next. Daruma Vinyasa Krama Yoga practice is beneficial because it helps students to align themselves with the flowing and evolving nature of the universe, rather than being caught in the mindset of seeing each asana as a separate event that’s disconnected from the rest of the practice. Your practice will feel natural and refreshing as your body gradually opens in flexibility and builds strength as the practice progresses. Daruma Yoga is a very safe and intelligently thought out process so your practice will heal you rather than harm you. Your teachers have all studied injury prevention and alignment practices that have been proven in studies of yoga and physiology to be the safest forms of movement and body mechanics.
Every class is sequenced Ayurvedically. Ayurveda is yoga’s sister science, which is still used as a form of medicine and healing in India. It has been developed over 5000 years into the holistic and incredibly effective medical system that it is today. Ayurveda is an ancient medical tradition from India. The term is derived from the Sanskrit ayur, meaning “life” or “longevity,” and veda, meaning “knowledge” or “science.”
The concept of Ayurveda is based on two major principles. The first principle is that the body and mind are interconnected, and the second principle is that the mind is powerful enough to heal the body. The body is cured of illnesses only when one’s awareness of the self-expands.
Ayurvedic medicine and Daruma Yoga are closely associated. They both find their roots in the Vedas. Yoga is the practical side of Vedic teachings and Ayurveda is the healing side. Ayurveda aims to keep the body and mind balanced so that the individual remains healthy, and Daruma Yoga is an art of body-mind coordination that ensures physical and mental fitness as well as enhances one’s spirituality.
The body is a combination of three doshas, or “energies.” These doshas are vata, pitta, and kapha. Every individual has one dosha that is more dominant than the others, depending on the prakriti, or “natural constitution,” of the person. Factors that influence the doshas include age, diet, and climate.
Daruma Yoga practice influences the balance of the three doshas. Choosing the right poses based on the personal constitution will help practitioners maximize the health benefits of yoga. The vata dosha governs the nervous system, so those with vata constitution will practice yoga poses that promote calm. The pitta dosha governs digestion and organ function, so those with pitta constitution will practice yoga poses that are cooling. Kapha dosha governs body fluids and the movement of nutrients so those with kapha constitution will practice stimulating yoga poses. We integrate yoga philosophy and spirituality into every class. By not ignoring the 8 limbs of yoga for just asana (physical practice) we feel we are teaching what the sages and rishi’s intended for this practice. Not only will you be purifying your body, you’ll be presented with ideas that will start to change your life. Lastly, in that vein, we integrate meditation/concentration technique into each class for the whole yoga package.
