NEW! Workshop Policy:

We love to offer interesting and informative workshops at the studio to help you go deeper into your understanding and practice of yoga. Because of the logistics of bringing in presenters, we are instituting a new workshop policy. To attend a workshop, you must register IN ADVANCE. Walk-ins for workshops will only be accepted on the day of the workshop if there is still space available. Any workshop may be cancelled within 5 days of the beginning date if there not a minimum number of participants registered, at a 100% refund to those already signed up.

Return/Refund Policy:

Drop-ins and all class passes are non-refundable, but may be transferrable to another student (with the exception of unlimited passes and memberships, which are non-transferrable.) Workshops are non- transferrable and are only refundable if the studio is notified in writing at least 5 days before the beginning of the workshop, or if the workshop has not met its minimum number of participants. Yoga Studies and Teacher Training programs are non- refundable once the program has started. Merchandise may be returned or exchanged within 30 days of purchase with a receipt.

Each week, a different teacher will lead this mixed level, beginner-friendly, pay-what-you- can yoga class. Open to all, the proceeds from this class will fund the Karma Yoga Outreach Program. When you participate in this class, not only are you getting a great yoga class, but you are giving back to the community- instant karma!

 Garden of the Heart is pleased to announce that our Karma Yoga Program is well underway. (Karma Yoga is the yoga of selfless service.) Our Karma Yoga Coordinator, Harriet Roberts, has been working hard to coordinate volunteer opportunities at the All Faith’s Food Bank. So far, GOH students have contributed over 10,400 meals to people in Sarasota, through monetary donations and donations of boxed and canned food. If you’re interested in volunteering at the Food Bank, or in any of our other upcoming volunteer opportunities please email Harriet.

The Karma Yoga Program has also been instrumental in bringing free yoga classes for Veterans to the Goodwill Community Center in Sarasota. Cheryl Chaffee is teaching this specialized class as a community outreach program, utilizing her advanced training with Warriors at Ease. For frequent updates on the Karma Yoga Programs amazing outreach, please join the Karma Yoga Team Facebook Page. If you’d like to make a tax-deductible contribution to this initiative, please email Harriet.


Every Wednesday from 3:30-4:30pm, Veterans, military service members, and their immediate family members may enjoy a free yoga class led by Cheryl. This class is gentle, therapeutic, and is designed for veterans and service members who may be working with injuries, PTSD, or who have never tried yoga before. Flexibility is NOT required!

Every Tuesday from 6-7 pm, Vets may also attend a free, GOH-sponsored yoga class at the Goodwill Veterans Services at 8490 Lockwood Ridge Rd. This class is led by Linda Lee.

WHY PRACTICE YOGA? Yoga is one of the most well-established and respected methods of self-care. It is a highly effective set of techniques to calm the nervous system, increase flexibility and strength, release physical and mental tension, enhance sleep, and improve digestion. Yoga includes physical poses, breathing exercises, meditation, and deep relaxation, to promote energy flow throughout the body. As body, mind, and spirit become more integrated through these practices, we move toward becoming the best version of ourselves.

WHY GARDEN OF THE HEART? Garden of the Heart Yoga Center's teachers all have extensive experience in alignment techniques, therapeutics, and progressive sequencing. Our classes are taught in a progressive style, with each week's classes building on poses taught the previous week. Over the course of a month, each level class works toward a pinnacle pose, to help you grow and expand into the fullness of the practice of yoga. You will receive individualized adjustments in the poses to facilitate your understanding and learning. All are welcome at the Garden of the Heart, from brand new beginners to advanced practitioners. Garden of the Heart Yoga Center is also recognized as an RYS-200 school for training yoga teachers.
