Emily McConnell iscertified through Western Yoga College, and master teacher Dr. Justine Lemos, PhD. Trained in Hatha Yoga, Restorative, Yin, Ashtanga/Vinyasa Flow, and an ongoing student of Ayurveda. Emily's classes are intended to vitalize, relax and sensitize mind and body. Evening and Morning Flow classes include building strength and flexibility with synchronized breath and movement sequences, often incorporating modified sun or moon salutations.
Restorative Yoga is intended to deeply relax and nourish the mind-body, and to create enough support for the body to hold postures (asana) in a completely relaxed state. This allows one to receive the pose, rather than do the pose.
All classes focus on reducing stress, anxiety, depression & headaches. Every class includes the opportunity for essential oil treatment in Savasana.
Evening Flow Classes some Fridays 5:30pm for Donation Yoga or to sub, check schedule
Morning Flow Classes Thurs 9am & Sat 10-11:30am
Restorative Classes Thursdays 5:30-6:45pm

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!
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!
