Mystical Hug classes are appropriate for all levels, including beginners. For most classes, the stye is a moderate pace, blending Hatha, Vinyasa and Restorative yoga. Dress in comfortable clothing and arrive a few minutes before class starts to get settled. On your first day, you'll need to fill out a quick waiver form. Mats are available for free. Drop ins are welcome. 

Have you ever wondered if doom metal and yoga would make a magical combination? Well, wonder no more! Mystical Hug Doom Metal Yoga is a welcoming all-levels class where we'll have fun practicing some feel-good yoga moves to some very non-traditional yoga music. We'll pick a different album to explore in entirety each week, or move through a magical metal playlist. Think: Pallbearer, Dark Castle, OM, Sumac, Yob, SubRosa, or King Woman. This class is taught in a style that allows you to get deep into the music and your own body. Requests are encouraged!  Click here to check out Mystical Hug Doom Metal Yoga on KATU News

Combining looping ambient guitar with psychedelic synths, earthy nature sounds, and everything in between, Ambient aLive is a music and yoga experience that allows you to go beyond the usual. Our house musician is Veliko (@VelikoPDX).

90s YOGA
No matter what decade you grew up in, you’ll enjoy this fun and energizing (sometimes silly) class. Rock, R&B, and hip hop will make up the bulk of the playlist but anything from Jan 1st, 1990 to Dec 31st, 1999 is fair game!

Find your next favorite musician! We’ll feature Portland artists, big and small, old and new, focusing mostly on on currently active artists. You may even be treated to a live performance - grab bag!

Move to some space-themed jams, both live and recorded, and enjoy an extra-long space meditation at the end of class that will leave you remembering YOU are made of the same stuff as stars.

This class is an opportunity to unwind and to give your nervous system a chance to return to its natural relaxed state. Poses are held for 2-5 minutes each, with some gentle movements in between. Props will be used heavily throughout the class, so that every body feels great.

If you enjoy the relaxation meditation at the end of every class, then join us for this event! The class is broken up into a few different exercises and we'll do some small/gentle movements in between, so you won't need to sit in stillness for a full hour. All levels are welcome, including those who are new to meditation.

Upcoming Classes

I am taking a break from regular studio offerings, but still offer private and small group classes from my living room. Currently, I offer a small group class every other Wednesday, and by request any weeknight. Living room classes are offered on a sliding scale so that you can enjoy yoga, no matter what your budget is!

Variety of flows, classes were versatile and different every time.

...the freedom to go along at whatever pace was comfortable for me as a first timer.

[Kali is...] very friendly and welcoming. Makes everyone feel comfortable and doesn’t make learning yoga feel intimidating.
— Jeff
I like that the doom metal yoga classes are available to people of all skill levels and the personal touch of having music/chanting/readings before the class and during savasana.
— Kathryn Jones
