About Our Studio:

     SoHum Yoga Center is located in the Garberville / Redway community of Southern Humboldt County, California.   The Studio opened in 2002 and has been a sacred space for our yoga community ever since.  In 2016 we replaced the floor with a beautiful new cork floor and a non-toxic carpet for the entry and prop areas and we love it.  We are  fully stocked with every prop you might need from blocks to sticky mats and a whole lot more.  All you have to do is show up.   We offer classes  for people just beginning their exploration of  yoga, as well as classes for the seasoned yogi. We have teachers trained in many styles of yoga including  Iyengar, Restorative yoga, Kundalini, Sivananda, and SRY Spinal Release Yoga.  We also have a healing Sound Bath happening once a month.

See schedule of classes page for more information.

Whether you are a novice who has wanted to try yoga as a relaxing and therapeutic practice, or you are an intermediate or experienced person looking to join a group session on a regular basis, we welcome you to come and visit any or all of our morning and evening classes.

If you would like to use the center for your class or event please contact Ann at 707-923-7227.

Choice of Classes

At SoHum yoga we offer a wide variety of yoga classes.  Every teacher is trained in a different style of yoga.  The classes can vary a lot.  Some are slow and relaxing and some are a more vigorous work out. Some focus more on the spiritual and meditative aspects of yoga and some classes focus more on the physical benefits a yoga practice can provide.  It is a good idea for beginners to try out several different teachers until they find the right fit.  If you are a more experienced yogi, keep in mind that different styles of yoga can be quite different.  When checking out a different style of yoga it is always good to start at the beginning.   We give each class a level to help you select the right class for you.

Level 1:  For students new to yoga.  Foundational movements and simple  poses to help build a personal practice.

Level 2: For Students with at least 6 months experience in yoga who are ready to move into more complex postures, longer holds, and/or more vigorous vinyasa.

Level 3: For students with a well-established practice who are working on challenging postures involving strength, stamina and flexibility.

Restorative: For all levels of practitioner seeking gentle and simple movement, breath work, and relaxation.
