Isabel V. says, "Krista is an excellent teacher on so many different levels. She sequences and leads creative, energetic, and genuinely fun large classes. Peak poses are very well prepped (often without you realizing what you're doing!) so you can safely and (and sometimes shockingly) get into challenging poses. But Krista also manages to interact personally with all of the students and build an amazing community. This individual attention has been invaluable to my yoga practice -- Krista knows what issues I'm working with and goes out of her way to give me modifications and extra strengthening exercises to work through. Beyond getting into exciting poses, I always trust that Krista is helping me build solid foundations with proper alignment for a safe practice. I look forward to every yoga class! I can't recommend Krista enough!" Read more

Julia F. says, "At Least 7 Health Issues Began to Fade Away in Just 2 Weeks (Julia Fryer, School Teacher, VA, USA) A two hour mini VIP session with Shanthi allowed me to get a lot of guidance, direction in my life, and a major breakthrough in one afternoon. We really started sinking into some of the things that were holding me back, things so basic that they affect your whole day, your whole year - finances and food. While my friends around me were doing what I was doing, drinking coffee to get through the morning, living paycheck to paycheck, I did not feel like my health or finances were flourishing. I needed a new perspective and someone to be on my team. With Shanthi's ideas and support, we figured out what were the ones that were really hurting me, like eating out and drinking coffee (both of which hurt me and my finances). Something within told me that I needed to seek help and make these changes and Shanthi encouraged me to implement easy changes in simple steps which brought me back to good health. To my surprise, at least 7 health issues started to fade away in just 2 weeks. This was an excellent place to start on my journey and I hope to go far with Shanthi as a guide and a friend." Read more

Your meditation questions, answered

How much do meditation classes cost near me?

Meditation classes cost $15 to $30 per person for a group session. One-on-one sessions cost $60 to $150 per hour for a more individualized experience. Some teachers offer online virtual classes for groups or individuals with ongoing monthly plans.

Higher prices apply for supplemental add-ons to enhance meditation, such as aromatherapy or sound baths with Tibetan singing bowls.

What should you expect at a meditation class?

Meditation classes typically start with an introductory talk. Then everyone closes their eyes and sits still. Classes can include a simple guided breathing technique to reduce stress and tension. If it's a guided meditation session, then the teacher speaks each instruction for focusing.

Note: The length of the silent pauses during the class will vary depending on the technique and style. Some meditation classes are in complete silence from beginning to end. Afterward, there may be a questions and answer session and light refreshments.

Erin's approach to fitness is like no other- she truly cares about her clients and has made a real impact on my life. Before training with Erin, I was unmotivated and felt lost in my health and wellness. Erin created a plan with goals that were actually attainable. She kept me on track and accountable, which allowed me to progress with great strides. I've had 3 trainers before Erin and none of them were as good as her.

I chose the YogaLaasyam program as my personal introduction to Yoga and I have found it meaningful, giving me a sense of direction. The program feels good and gives me opportunities to learn Yoga with a sense of understanding. My favorite surprise is how much of fun it is. It is good for my growth and has become a part of my day. I chose this dance style of Yoga because I was intrigued by the Mudras, as I had a bad break in my left wrist area last year. I was very interested in dance as well as symbology. Shanthi’s program starts in a way I can follow without hurting myself because she emphasizes on respecting your body. The program never makes me feel rushed to push myself through something I’m not ready for, but has a nice, smooth progression that matches the relaxing and meditational tone of the teachings. I can feel each Mudra stretch some muscles of my hand while working others. The shikara mudra feels especially good on my thumbs, which have some arthritis from my job. I wanted to learn Yoga ONLY from someone who had the whole story (not just the poses, but the wisdom and science). Shanthi was my natural choice as she is dedicated to sharing the ancient wisdom of Yoga in its authentic form. Shanthi’s teaching style is so natural that I feel like a child who is learning through play. Thank you, Shanthi!
