Mission Statement for Ventura Yoga Studio
We offer a safe, nurturing and inclusive learning environment for people of all capabilities and ages, from beginners to the very experienced student looking to deepen their practice. We offer classes in Yoga and T’ai Chi Chih®. We preserve, embrace and share these practices that activate, circulate and balance the vital force energy (Prana or Chi) for the promotion of health, well-being and joy. Both practices can bring improved balance, longevity and serenity, providing the opportunity for inner peace and tranquility. For more, see the About Us page.

Classes with the Masters
Next date to be announced.
This is a series of occasional classes. It is quite an experience, especially for those who have never been to India to study with the Iyengars. Come watch, take notes or practice along to a videotaped class taught by B.K.S., Geeta or Prashant Iyengar shown on our big flatscreen TV.
Use your class package or purchase a single class.
50% of the proceeds will be donated to the Bellur Trust.
B.K.S. Iyengar • December 14, 1918 - August 20, 2014
"Yoga is a light which once lit will never dim. The better you practice, the brighter the flame."
"The Light that yoga sheds on Life is something special. It is transformative. It does not just change the way we see things; it transforms the person who sees."
"It is through your body that you realize you are a spark of divinity."
"Practice, practice, practice and the rest will follow."
