Welcome to Desert Song Yoga
Starting on Your Path to Inner Joy
We are honored you have chosen Desert Song as you begin to discover the benefits and joys of yoga! New students are welcome to come to any of our weekly classes or to schedule an individual yoga session. However, we recommend students who are new to the practice of yoga, sign up for our Intro to Yoga series and complement that practice with our Gentle and Basics classes, gradually building to All-Level classes.

The series focuses on primary yoga postures, principles of safe alignment, breathing techniques and yoga philosophy.
