The intention of the Shasta Yoga Institute is to offer quality yoga instruction by certified yoga teachers dedicated to the well being of each student.
Inspired by the practice of awakening and engaging the authentic Self, the Shasta Yoga Institute (aka Shasta Yoga) is committed to cultivating community and supporting the individual in Being their own true spacious nature.
Through the deeper study of Yoga we realize the importance of continuity in our practice. We come to see that living and being yoga is united… and the opportunity to Be the “practice” is in every moment.
The Shasta Yoga Institute donates yearly to the Siskiyou Land Trust, the Bioregional Ecology Center, the River Exchange, Mount Shasta Education Foundation, the Nordic Center and Friends of Mount Shasta Avalanch Center.
