Go to School!
Our Spring Session is underway, with room in all classes for you to Register or Drop In. Let us help you select your first class. Start by reading Which Class Is for Me? and New to Yoga or Dream.
You can also schedule a $60 for 60-Minute Private Class Session with Dream Director Luann Fulbright to assess your needs, learn Beginner and Dream Yoga basics, and help you select a group class if desired.
And to feel even better, get a Massage, Reiki, or Aroma-Touch Therapy to treat a special concern. Try Foot Reflexology, Thai Yoga Massage, or one of our other Healing Arts Services! Consult with a Health Coach or Nutritional Therapist.
"Coming to a Dream yoga class is like getting a workout and getting a massage and going to a therapist...all at the same time. After class, I always feel sooo good!” -- Pam H.

Share Your Passion for Helping...with Dream's Wonderful Folks
Dream Yoga’s Home Page says, “Come Home!” This is because…many folks through the years have said that coming to Dream Yoga Studio is like “coming home.” They feel comfortable the minute they enter Dream's door.
But there’s another way to look at coming home—the yoga way. Explore more about home-coming in the article, poems, Tips for Practice and “A Student’s Story” here.
Learn More About The Proven Health Benefits of Yoga!
For years, Dream Yoga Director Luann has told students, "Whatever the problem is, the answer is more yoga!"
Now, a growing body of scientific evidence is showing that yoga is indeed "very effective" in treating conditions of body, mind and spirit. Yoga improves overall flexibility, strength and balance. It's being used to address back pain, heart disease management, anxiety, arthritis, insomnia, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, asthma, menopausal/menstrual problems, and nerve and muscle disease. Yoga is also being proven to help with management of pain, mood changes, cancer, weight...and so much more!
Most studies on the effects of yoga in the west show good results with a minimal practice of yoga-for example, once a week for 30 minutes. But in India, where the need for daily or regular practice is understood and incorporated in yoga studies, the research has shown even more profound effects of yoga.
As our understanding of the benefits of yoga grows, so is the number of people practicing yoga in the United States. This number of Americans practicing yoga today as approximately tripled within the past decade and is estimated to be between 15 and 18 million. In addition, of current non-practitioners, Yoga Journal affirms that nearly 8 percent (or 18.3 million Americans) say they are very or extremely interested in yoga, triple the number from a 2004 study. Like Dream yogis and yoginis, more people are also using-or beginning to understand the need to use-yoga as part of a general health regimen to achieve physical fitness and to relax.
There are many reviews of literature now worth reviewing. To learn more about the health benefits of Yoga and how Yoga differs from conventional exercise, read this article from the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

Do You Know These Things?
More is better! The more you do yoga, the more you’ll see its benefits. To encourage you to sign up for more than one class, Dream gives you a discount when you sign up for more than one of our regular classes. Registration is $17 for the first class and $15 a class for any additional classes (versus $22 for Drop-Ins).
Making up is easy—and even fun—to do. We have a liberal Make-Up Policy. If you know you’ll be absent, double-up during the week—before your absence or afterwards in the current session—taking your regular class and another (perhaps trying out a new class or teacher). Or simply TRY ANOTHER CLASS or teacher any time you want. Explore!
We’re flexible. If your schedule is erratic, register for the class you think you’ll attend the most. During weeks your schedule doesn’t allow you to take that class, enjoy taking other classes.
We let you know. If a class is cancelled due to low registration, students who are registered for that class receive an email at least 24 hours before the class. So please check your email before class. We also try to post cancellations on our Voice Mail at least an hour before the class, and on Dream’s website. Class cancellations are always posted in Dream’s Registration System. That’s where you’ll find the most updated list of classes and cancellations.
We count on your commitment. When you register for a class or workshop at Dream Yoga, your registration reserves your spot and, in return, commits you to payment. Please be sure to read our Cancellation Policies online. We make decisions about holding class and paying teachers based on your registration and commitment, and try to be fair to all by upholding our policies.
Don’t be disappointed…by a class of your choice being full or cancelled. Please register early!
