Our Journey

About Us

Roberta Tewes - certified Iyengar instructor - teaches all Iyengar Yoga classes. With Iyengar, alignment based principles give the student a clear and supportive way to practice asana by using props-the wall, blocks, bolsters, straps and more! Roberta focuses on these alignment based principles of asana by teaching body awareness to her students. Her fun spirit, love and enjoyment of the practice shine through each pose.

Sundays 10am-noon and Wednesdays 6-8pm

Our teachers

Emily and Maleese, 2014

We are the space that was once called The Zen House, first manifested by Kelly 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 transformed once again and is now managed and maintained by Emily, along with our group of amazing teachers, supportive community & wonderful 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. When the weather is right, we expand the studio to an outdoor location on the bluff overlooking beautiful Anchor Bay. We also love yoga field-trips, to take in the beauty of the coast as well as experience new places to practice. We are always looking for new ways to find mindfulness in movement, and we'd love for you to join us!



Our instructors offer styles of yoga based on the foundations of the lineage they study and practice. Read a bit about us, and feel free to Connect with us for class recommendations!
