Welcome to Coventry Yoga Shala, we are so grateful you found us. Shala is Sanskrit for home or house. A yoga shala is a gathering place to practice asana (the physical practice of yoga) in a small, nurturing and supportive community.
CYS offers a variety of yoga therapy informed classes, trauma informed classes and traditional classes. Founder, Kelly Bay is certified through the International Association of Yoga Therapists ( C-IAYT) and is a CT licensed massage therapist.
Yoga therapy informed classes are designed to focus on improving health and well-being using asana, meditation, philosophy and pranayama (breathing practices). There is less focus on learning to get your body into a traditional asana shape and more focus on how your body is moving and breathing and how the asana can be varied to meet your specific needs. Traditional yoga classes while inherently healing are providing instruction first in the traditional alignment based practices of yoga.
Come practice with us.
