Roberta Tewes - certified Iyengar instructor - teaches all Iyengar Yoga classes. With Iyengar, the exactness and alignment based principles give the student a clear and supportive way to practice asana. Roberta brings a fun yet straight forward approach to teaching and is also an amazing artist. Her classes are on Sundays at 10am and Wednesdays at 6pm.

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 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 Flow. One of our newest additions to bless our space is Power Vinyasa Flow, combining cardiovascular training and endurance elements in the spirit of Vinyasa.

When the weather is right, we expand the studio to an outdoor location on the bluff overlooking Anchor Bay. We also love 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.
