After my first yoga class in 2010, I climbed into my car and broke into tears. Something about yoga just felt right in all the best ways. I was working a job that was bringing me down and I didn’t realize how much until I began this practice. Since then, I’ve become a teacher (RYT-200 Hatha and Vinyasa) and I continue to be a student of yoga practice and philosophy. I believe yoga and meditation reduce help us uncover our true selves. I’m especially called to bring yoga to people who believe themselves to be to fat, old, or broken to do yoga. Because of this, I specialize in pose modifications for every body’s shape, size and ability. And, I’m a passionate advocate for experiencing health at every size and loving the body you’re in right now.



Balanced Yoga

 Thursdays, 4:00-5:15 pm

We all could use a little more balance in our lives, and Balanced Yoga brings in elements of a more active hatha/vinyasa class and blends them with a calming yin/restorative class. This class begins with moving poses and sequences to connect the mind and body with the breath, and ends with deeply relaxing restorative poses to ease the activity of the mind and soothe the nervous system. All experience levels are welcome, including beginners, and modifications and props are offered and encouraged for each unique body.

Inspire Studio Reviews

  • Julia Moss ★★★★★
    This historical one room yoga studio is a beautiful place for a class. Instructors range in style, class time, and difficulty but owner Ruby Koa does a beautiful job filling her space with love. Drop in for a sweat at the noon power hour on Tuesday or Thursday, start your weekend off right with a free meditation class Friday afternoon or ever try the new aerial yoga class offered with silks. Inspire is an incredible place to find community and spirit.
