About Ignite Yoga

Maintaining a strong body and healthy mind is what yoga is all about. Learn more about Ignite Yoga and everything we have to offer every person that walks through our doors.

Classes and Rates

You are never too old or too inflexible to begin taking yoga. With a regular practice of just 2-3 times a week, you can lubricate your joints, increase your range of motion, safely stretch your muscles, and release the lactic acid that causes muscle stiffness, pain and fatigue.

Meet Your Instructors

Our instructors care about each person that walks through our door. We will compassionately create an environment built upon trust. Each of our instructors has received extensive training and will share their experience and love of yoga to help nurture your practice in a non-competitive way.


“Yoga feels like an ever-present companion that doesn’t judge me, I come as I am and work through my issues as best as I can; all the while yoga is there helping me in various ways through life. It’s helped me connect with others I wouldn’t have been blessed to meet otherwise. I can now understand what people mean when they say it’s a lifestyle, not a hobby. It’s about discovering your inner light, and appreciating those around you for their light. Shedding off the influences that could bring you down and coming into your own. I’m grateful to have yoga so that I can work on finding who I am. When asked, no one would say they want to live a version of their life bound to what other people make them! I want to become the me I have inside!”

“I am an avid skier, dirt biker, and mountain biker. I have broken bones in all of these activities including putting away laundry (no kidding), I never though I would be able to run again with out pain. Even turning my head was a chore when driving. I have utilized the gym and trainers and found myself bored, still in pain, and stiff. Since going to yoga, my pain has diminished and my motion of flexibility has increased dramatically.”

– Steve


“After my surgery, my balance was gone.  I couldn’t even walk without assistance.  Again, thanks to my yoga practice, my balance slowly came back.  I am always beaming on the inside when I can do the balance poses.  I am forever grateful to the Ignite Yoga teachers and community.”

– Mary


“Yoga has taught me gentle acceptance that all things, not just poses, may not happen for me. And that’s okay. It’s what I do, I like it. It’s a little gift I give to myself most days of the week. It’s me in a room full of people united by our breath in a quest for a little bliss and peace in our day.”

– Audrey


“Emily has created a space to practice a deep connection to your body, mind, and spirit. No matter how many people may be in the class, that lets you reflect and let go. Always healing! Thank you.”

– Catherine


“The most enjoyable reward currently is the mental experience I receive from one session of yoga. I walk into the studio & there is absolutely nothing going on in my mind about what I have to do, what I didn’t get done, my children, my work, my bills or any other thoughts flowing through my mind.”

– Jenny
