Our Story

How did House of yoga come to be?

House Of Yoga started from very humble beginnings. Our 1st space was truly the size of a very large walk in closet in The City of York, fitting about 10 mats with a small sweet following of committed students and 1 teacher, that met twice a week for almost 2 years. All of our classes were donation based and covered our monthly rent. It was like we were in a secret, hidden space with crooked floors, and dodgy space heaters to keep us warm. In that time we moved, breathed, grew in the space we lovingly called Mexico. It was our vacation spot. We would crank up the music and just flow. No Judgments, no agenda just some yogis supporting one another. In time, we saw that this concept could be bigger and that we could serve more. We saw that a donation based, member supported community, could thrive, and even have great financial success. It seemed that as soon as we said the word, our classes began to pack out. We were on our way to moving into our new House!   We named it House of Yoga because we see that it is a home away from home- a place to rest, be easy, and feed our souls. This is your House. 

What style of Yoga will you find at House of yoga?

 

 The flow is inspired by Sid Mcnairy, a teacher that has mentored and trained two of our founding teachers. Most of our classes are taught in a warm room (90 degrees to be exact). Classes are open to ALL levels. This flow is incredible and will shift you faster than you can say YOGA!

 

Our classes are inspired to help everyone who walks through our doors.

"Your experience will be guided from Nahi "Warrior" Vinyasa Yoga tradition which is a flowing form of yoga that heals, detoxifies, and electrifies the body and mind at their deepest levels. Prepare to be invigorated!

Students move consistently from pose to pose, utilizing the principles of alignment, including the practice of personal awareness and the breath. This flowing form of yoga will transform your body and revive your spirit both on and off the mat. Everyone from beginner to advanced yoga students will find space to modify their posture to create their individual experience." ~Sid McNairy

Our Team

 

We are an amazing team of teachers sharing our love for yoga! Every one of us have signed on at House of Yoga with the commitment to bring yoga and wellness to all bodies.

Our studio is donation based and is focused on three very important, but simple principles- Give what you can. Take what you need. There is always enough.

And so… with blind faith we jump in.  With open hearts, we trust that all is coming. Fearlessly in peace we are committed to grow in this house that is for all bodies, all walks of life. It’s time to breath, it’s time to sweat, to twist and bind, to grow and shift, to laugh, to stretch and fold, to avoid getting old, to dream, to let go, to feel safe, to find grace, to teach and to learn. This is the House that Love built.

I can¹t tell you how many times in a week I hear one of my students say, "My friend said I

should come."

Jason Konopinski | Teacher & Founding Member Expertise: Keepin it light, assisting, leading students to be present. Experience:  I've been teaching for nearly two years and practicing for almost three. Teaching Certification - RYT 200, Sid Yoga Jan 2015 Currently pursuing 300 hr TT Why Yoga for me? Like many people, I came to yoga seeking relief from physical ailments, but the practice opened my heart and brought forward connection to my highest self. Yoga is the consummate teacher -- it doesn't provide the answers, but it does equip me with the right learning to dig deeper. What inspires you about the HOY community? What *doesn't* inspire me about this community?! This community has amazed me in its willingness to try on new things: a shifting schedule, the wild dreaming, and dedication to transforming the greater York community by just hitting the mat. Why do you teach? I teach because I have something to share. What fires you up off the mat? Learning in all its forms. There's a lesson at the end of every cast, in every footstep and every conversation if we're willing to listen.

Rita Whitney | Teacher & Founding Member Expertise: You are going to walk out of my class with a brighter outlook on life, every time.  I feel confident in saying that I am great at sharing my extreme optimism with all of my students. I encourage you to take yourself lightly, to feel free to explore and feel any emotions that come up, and to get into your practice way beyond the physical poses. Experience: 200hr teaching certification, and I've been teaching for a year and a half. What inspires you about the HOY Community? I envision HOY as a place that lifts the boundaries between all people. Where each individual, myself included, can be our full unique selves without having to fit into a certain mold of what a "yogi" is.  I see that anyone can have a place at the House of Yoga if they choose. A place where our differences are celebrated as something to learn from to gain new perspective. What is your favorite thing about teaching? I love watching my students rediscover themselves through yoga.  I have had so many breakthroughs and revelations in my own practice/life, and now I get the opportunity to see it happen in others as well!  When a student tells me about some new experience they've had, or some life realization that they came to, it just makes me think "this is what it's really about". What fires you up? Besides yoga? Art and Community are my major passions. I am like a kid in a candy store at a museum or gallery show, I want to make drawings of the art, and discuss every aspect of it. It is the same when someone approaches me with a really good collaborative idea that is going to benefit our community.  I can't wait to get started!  I want to tell everyone about what we are doing, and get as many people involved as possible.

Jessie Youtz | Teacher & Founding Member Experience:  10 years on the mat as a student 200hr teacher training 1.5 years teaching 450+hrs teaching Why Yoga for me? My journey with yoga began 10 years ago. As a full time Massage Therapist, I quickly realized at the end of each day just how important it was to create a space to restore my mind and body. Yoga has taught me more then just how to stand on my head... it has allowed me to expand from the inside out. It has invited me to explore challenges from new perspectives, taught me to accept growth in any and all forms and most importantly how to stand in my own power. To not only hear my own voice but to listen closely. What inspires you about the HOY community? The eagerness to grow and explore...both as a community and as individuals. To come together in full support of our differences and similarities. To build upon our strengths, weaknesses and curiosities together. I am inspired to be a part of something that encourages the act of stepping into ones best self. Why do you teach? I teach to encourage growth. To explore what is beyond comfort zones. To help others believe in their own potential...both on and off the mat. I teach to remind myself of these things as well. To shine bright and own your voice.  What fires you up off the mat? Loved ones. Goal setting. Bucket lists. Sunsets. Handstands :)
