As we entered the New Year of 2007, The Connecticut Yoga Center entered a new phase in its existence. Kitty Moore passed the torch of ownership into the hands of Jennifer Brosious and Laine Harris and we became Your Community Yoga Center. For those of you who are friends of Kitty, visit her website at www.sadhanawest.com.
This continues to be an evolution, and we invite you to share in the process as we develop Your Community Yoga Center. As we move along, we’ll share the journey with you.

About Our Beautiful Space
We have two lovely barefoot studios, both with large windows that bring in beautiful natural light.
The Lotus Studio(shown at left, approx. 16' x 30'), has a bamboo floor.
The Om Studio(shown below, approx. 30' x 40' plus "outdent" with raised platform in front), has a natural hardwood floor.
Both are available for rent for events that are energetically appropriate for the space.
Over the years, many people have admired the Lotus Flowers and Om symbol that are painted on the walls in the rooms and hallways. The artist's name is Carleigh Hoff, and you can read more about her and her wonderful creative spirit by clicking here.
We have many plants and flowers around the studio supplied by Janie McCabe. View Janie's beautiful work and contact info by clicking here.
