Welcome to Shelburne Falls Yoga

Shelburne Falls Yoga serves students of all levels, ranging in age from 3 to 93. Everyone is welcome here! Our beautiful and spacious studio overlooks the Deerfield River and Salmon Falls, 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!

Fragrance-Free Studio Reminder

It has been a common practice for yoga spaces to provide a haven for individuals with chemical sensitivies, and Shelburne Falls Yoga is no exception.  We have been "fragrance free" for more than a decade.  For those who are not prone to such sensitivities it can be easy to forget. For those who are, practicing in an enclosed space next to a perfume wearer can have significant health impacts that last well beyond class time.
There are quite a few members of our studio community who have this level of sensitivity to scented products, including some of your teachers.  Please remember to refrain from wearing perfumes, scented lotions, hair products, and laundry detergents when visiting the yoga studio. Scented dryer sheets are another common culprit.
Also, please remember that we do ask students to refrain from attending class with contagious illnesses like cold or flu for similar health reasons. In both cases, this can be a wonderful opportunity to lean into the practice ahimsa (non-harming) and to help ensure that the studio remains a place of health and healing for all. We thank you in advance for your consideration!
