About Wilmington Yoga
Established in 2000, Wilmington Yoga has offered classes, workshops, teacher trainings and retreats for its community of students.

Classes are for students of all ages and all levels.
Why Take a Yoga Workshop?
In addition to your routine yoga classes, which already offer information on poses(asanas), pranayama(breathing techniques) and dhyana(meditation), why not dive a little deeper and take a yoga workshop? This type of setting gives you an opportunity to receive more personalized attention from an experienced yoga teacher. Yoga workshops also give new or different insight to a practice you’re already passionate about. And you can hone in on a subject that truly interests you. The topics vary from workshops that focus on specific families of asanas(such as backbends) to different meditation techniques(mindful walking is quite an experience) to learning how to practice or teach yoga for therapeutic needs(why not chair yoga?); some workshops are a full weekend, others 2-3 hours – the possibilities are endless!
