Registration & Protocols for studio classes-

In-Person: Masks are now optional for all classes except Monday afternoon's gentle yoga class. Masks are still recommended if you are in a high risk category or live with someone who is. If you  have traveled or attended a large gathering in the past 5 days, please wear your mask to class.

Class size will be limited to 8-10 (see details with class listings above.) Registration opens one week prior to the class date and is required each week.  Use the links above to reserve your spot. 

The studio has four large hepa air purifiers in use during and after classes. Mats and blankets are not available for use at this time, so please bring your own. Blocks, straps, and bolsters are available for your use. We ask that you aim to arrive 5-15 minutes prior to your class time. (Set-up takes a little longer these days, so the studio will likely not be open more than 15 min. prior.)

  • Please do not attend if you have had a known exposure to Covid-19
  • Please do not attend if you or any household member are experiencing symptoms of contagious illness (flu, cold, Covid etc.)

Shelburne Falls Yoga serves students of all ages and level of experience . Everyone is welcome here!

You’ll find us in our beautiful new studio space at The Mill at Shelburne Falls, in the historic renovated Lamson and Goodnow factory buildings. Our bright, spacious studio still overlooks the Deerfield River and Salmon Falls (from the other side of the river), and our dedicated and experienced teachers are committed to helping you work toward greater health, well-being, and self-awareness through skilled instruction in yoga, movement, and meditation.

We actively foster an environment in which your goals, needs, and intuitive wisdom take precedence over external performance or conforming to outside instruction. We value the process of inquiry and honor the multi-faceted, ancient, and evolving tradition of yoga. Compassionate self-observation is at the core of our offerings, and we engage in an ongoing exploration of how this core can be extended outward in acknowledgement of the collective needs of our shared world.

Our studio is a beloved place of respite and community gathering for many, where you will also learn and practice skills in body and mind that can serve you in your health, work, and relationships throughout your lifetime. We hope you will join us!
