Yoga at True North Farm in York
Jul 01 - Sep 30, 2021
True North Yoga at True North Farm
2635 York Road West
True North Yoga is a community focused, inclusive studio where anyone, regardless of yoga experience, body type, race, age, gender identity, sexual orientation or income can learn about the eight limbs of an ancient practice in a safe and welcoming environment.
True North Yoga is practiced in a restored turn of the 19th century barn where fresh breezes through wide open doors welcome you during the warmer months and a converted, heated hayloft provides a cozy space when the temperatures drop outside.
True North Yoga offers a flow style yoga class for any level student as well as restorative classes that are designed to bring deep rest while remaining in supported poses for longer (than usual) periods of time.
True North Yoga features a unique summer offering–aqua yoga! A warm salt water pool, next to the barn, provides another form of relaxing and sometimes challenging yoga practice. These classes are small and by preregistration only.
As we adjust to this phase of re-emerging from the pandemic, I want to move slowly when reopening so we don’t simply resume life as normal or business as usual when we resume our yoga practice together.
Like you and your family, we want to travel to see friends and family whom we’ve missed, try to take a canceled
vacation and in general, be more mindful to not rush through life, overschedule and most of all, learn some
valuable lessons from those long months of fear, loss and uncertainty in our community, nation and world.
Practically speaking, what that means is this:
For the months of July and August, each week’s schedule will be determined on Sundays for the upcoming week.
Schedules will be posted on this website (truenorthfarm.com), Facebook (@truenorthyogayork) and Instagram
The barn can hold a lot of people, so no pre-registration for land classes is required at this time.
The pool, however, is limited to 7 students per class. Sign up for each week’s class will be done by phone (call
or text). You will know you are registered for a particular class when you receive a confirmation call or text
We all know how truly unpredictable the weather is, so I’ll be making my best guess on Sunday for that
All of this summer’s classes will be donation based, cash or check only. I appreciate your patience, waiting for me to reopen and your flexibility with the summer schedule. I will take this time to take the pulse of the local yoga community to decide how to roll after Labor Day.
Many are still struggling to emerge from the pandemic. I am on the board of Foodlink (foodlinkny.org), which
serves a ten county region including Livingston County. Food insecurity and access to nutritious food during the
pandemic was at an all time high. That has not gone away because mask mandates have been dropped. Summer donations will go to Foodlink.
Speaking of mask wearing…..
Many of you are aware that one of the reasons I did not reopen earlier is that I do not believe it is healthy or
beneficial to practice yoga while wearing a mask. The grounding of yoga as well as what is asked of our bodies
during vinyasa flow, calls for big, healthy inhales and exhales—something that a mask impedes.
While, at this time, I will not require proof of vaccination to practice at True North Yoga, I trust you will practice
with your safety as well as the safety of others utmost in your mind and heart.
Plant. Nurture. Harvest.
