Yes, a yoga party! Yoga birthday parties, yoga cocktail parties, yoga bridal parties, yoga book-club parties— you fill in the blank! Approximate 2 hour class including 75 minutes of yoga and 15-20 minutes of breath work.
Choose your theme− be it a relaxing restorative yoga class, or perhaps one with a theme of your choice, yoga for computer geeks, a holiday-themed yoga class, or yoga for (you fill in the blank)!
If you have space in your home or group meeting place, all you need to do is show up in comfortable clothes, and I bring everything else — the music, candles, incense (if you like that sort of thing), and mats. I even bring my own yoga mat spray and hand towels for your use!
After a yoga party, people have so much energy, and they communicate with each other at a totally different level. Please call to discuss your perfect stress-relief package!
Basic party rate: $135 group rate per party locally or $13.50 per person—whichever is higher. *A non-refundable deposit of $75 is required to hold the date of your party.

“The class last night was fun and very interesting. Thanks. *I also slept quite nice last night. I’ve been having restless nights for about a week so I finally got some shut eye. I guess I need to meditate more, huh…! “
“Ever since joining Better Day Yoga I have an improved sense of energy. I am much more in tune to my health, including both mind and body. Better Day Yoga has motivated me to take more time for myself and my health. Previously, I have not been on an exercise routine. Since starting my new job, which has a much improved work/life balance, and joining Better Day Yoga, I can now proudly say, “Yes, I exercise”! I now strive to exercise for 30-90 minutes five times a week. I look forward to additional goals that I will set in the future and milestones to accomplish. This is just the start to an open road
Thank you for your guidance, instruction and inspiration!”
