About InYoga

Creating InYoga

InYoga was created for people to connect with like-minded others, enriching their knowledge and experience of yoga both on and off the mat.

An innovative approach to the traditional philosophy of yoga lies at the heart of all that we offer. Yoga is any activity or path that leads to integration or wholeness of the human being. We acknowledge the traditional lineages of yoga, presenting them in a way that is relevant to modern, city-dwelling yogis.

Our vision is to guide you through an organic, evolutionary, living process of yoga to awaken your full potential. Through our classes, workshops, trainings and events, we encourage you to live, know and love a life in yoga.

Although they didn’t technically meet through yoga, an introduction by mutual friends who knew of their shared love for downward dogs set the tone for an inimitable partnership. Could two yogis from opposite ends of the yogic spectrum find balance and bliss somewhere in the middle? Rod’s classical and traditional India-based yoga education and Nicole’s contemporary training found common ground in the idea that yoga is for every body. InYoga became the vehicle through which they share their intention to empower others to find balance and ease in their lives through the many paths of yoga.
