We are the space that was once called The Zen House, first manifested by Kelley Litle in 2012. In 2014, Sutras Yoga was created by Maleese Warner and Emily McConnell to continue the original intention for the studio: hold a sacred space for our community, a "come as you are" space to find serenity, and a practice to help guide that process. As Maleese moved out of the area, the studio shifted once again and is now managed and maintained by Emily, along with our group of amazing teachers and supportive community & students.

We are dedicated to making various forms and levels of yoga available to everyone. We offer several modalities of yoga: Iyengar, Hatha, Restorative, & Vinyasa Flow. We are also interested in and offer other movement - meditation practices, such as Yuan Gong, a style of Qi-Gong. Slow Burn Yoga Flow is one of our newest classes, blending gentle but challenging yoga and strengthening exercises.

When the weather is right, we expand the studio to an outdoor location on the bluff overlooking Anchor Bay. In the summertime we like to go on yoga field trips to take in the beauty of the coast and experience new places to practice! We are always looking for new ways to find mindfulness in movement.

We are a space dedicated to the practice of yoga as well as other healing and movement modalities. Our mission is to hold space on this beautiful piece of coast in Mendocino County, where everyone is welcomed and invited to find their practice.
