“I like Center for Yoga Okemos because it allows the true middle way for anyone who comes in. Not too much or too little; welcoming for the beginner and offering space to grow for the experienced yogi. A really beautiful sangha.”

"I have been practicing yoga for nearly a decade and became certified as an instructor in 2008, but until I practiced at Sanctuary Yoga this week, I have experienced a feeling of loss over not finding a yoga center in the East Lansing area that I liked. I have visited several others but was turned off by the loud rock music or the dark rooms heated to 100 degrees and the higher prices. Sanctuary Yoga is such an apt name, it is in a quiet and green, but easily accessible, area of Okemos. There is plenty of free parking, very affordable prices, a clean well-light practice space with views of trees and the sky, and most importantly, supportive, open hearted teachers who inspire you to explore and deepen your practice without intimidation or distracting humor. They are concentrated but light in their instruction, just like a yoga practice should be. I have been to many studios around the world, and Sanctuary Yoga is special. I recommend it to anyone new to yoga or experienced and looking for a "yoga home" to practice."
"Let me start by saying that I've been a "yoga hater" for years. I had tried it in many different studios with different teachers at different times of my life and it just never seemed to be for me. However, my attitude completely changed when I attended Sanctuary Yoga! The teachers are great, the studio is clean, and they offer a variety of classes for a fantastic price!! I would highly recommend Sanctuary Yoga to both beginners and well-practiced yoga-doers."
"I attended for the first time last weekend, and felt so rejuvenated into the next day! Just signed up for my 2nd session, with Jane. Looking forward to meeting her and other class-goers :)"
