metta yoga -- a trusted community of loving kindness
feel freeto get excited about our expansion & move! We are thrilled to share with you the wonderful news that by the end of March we will be moving to a new larger space. We are very excited about this new home for our special Metta community, and we know you will be too. We have been listening to our community and you will find our new studio evolving based on your feedback and suggestions. Some highlights to follow:
- our new location is at Gaslight Square (only stone throw from our current space), located in the inner courtyard, facing the fountains and blooming bushes. We believe that the setting couldn't be better fit for us, offering neighboring coffee houses, book stores, local shops, as well as variety of fun breakfast, lunch and dinner places - all only steps away from our doors. This way you can combine your yoga experience with other parts of your day. As a final confirmation from the universe - our suite number is 108!
- the new 2000 sq feet space will feature a larger, square-shaped studio with plenty of space for all our class modalities. It will also include a room for private classes and one-on-one consultations to meet your every need. The studio itself will have raised ceilings, and two big floor to ceiling windows filtering in natural light. We are making use of natural and eco-firendly materials, including solid bamboo floors. The facility will also have a new, state of the art music system.
- we will be substantially expanding our retail boutique, and continuing to support our community of local artist & artisans and other local producers. Remember to use your 20% unlimited membership discount which applies not only on workshops but also on the retail purchases.
Please share this exciting news with your friends and family - to make sure that every single member of our Metta community was reached by this wonderful news. There will be no changes in our schedule or pricing and all the memberships and packages are staying the same. We are convinced that this new space will help us to ensure we carry on the tradition of creating meaningful/memorable experiences for our very special community. As one of our teachers said - we will be replanting our community to a largetr pot, allowing it to sprout and grow.

Arizona Foothills magazine named us in the TOP 6 YOGA STUDIOS in Phoenix, with special honors for our restorative yoga program including Zuzana's, Kat's and Lorilee's classes. Please read the details here and help us the spread this exciting news. We are also happy to share with you, that Zuzana is back (after her skiing injury) teaching her Yoga Therapy classes. in her classes, students are guided through a set of postures and informed about specific health benefits of each pose. Detailed instruction is given for posture modification, reflecting a student's limitation and contraindications. This allows them to taylor the practice based on their current physical/health condition. Postures are held for a longer period of time (2-10 mins) to achieve the therapeutic benefit, and to allow time to adjust not only the posture alignment, but also the proper breathing and state of mind - which can vary based on the posture.
