Note For Newer Students

Redbud Yoga is a safe space for people of any size or shape, with or without fancy yoga clothes, and any age.  Our studio is quiet and private. This style of yoga starts with each student where she is, whether that is in top physical condition or having some challenges. At Redbud Yoga you will find a willingness to adapt each pose to fit your specific needs. As beginners, we will meet our fingers and toes and some of the parts in between, by doing very simple and do-able postures (called asanas -- ah sah nahs).  Check out our Questions & Concerns section for answers to some of your questions, or give Jan a call or text at 217.779.9642(YOGA).
