Hatha Yoga Directory

Welcome to the Yoga Journal Hatha Yoga Directory page. In this section you will find yoga studios, retreat centers, and teachers who specialize or incorporate Hatha Yoga into their practice and philosophy.

Hatha Yoga, or Hatha Vidya, was established by Yogi Swatmarama. Not only was Swatmarama an intellectual of 15th century yoga, but also put together the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. In this work, Swatmarama discusses Hatha Yoga as a starting point for physical purification of the body, which ultimately leads to higher meditation. Most people in the west associate yoga with hatha and hatha yoga can provide mental and physical health benefits to those who practice it.

In the summer of 2017, I decided to take the plunge and finally get my 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training. Working with Helen Cloots of the Floating Yoga School, I've completed that aspect of my training and am prepared to teach Vinyasa, Modified Ashtanga, and  gentle Hatha yoga. I live in Glenmoore, PA with my husband, cat, and dog. We're renting a 225 year old farm house that had gone wild for a few years before the landlords renovated it. Behind the house are tangled acres of berry bushes, fox dens, and deer trails.

In 2009--seven years after my cancer diagnosis and moments after yet another potentially embarrassing wardrobe malfunction duringa yoga class--I ditched my breast form at the studio, acknowledging that I had found my second home. I've used yoga to nurture myself as both a survivor and caregiver, discovering that a conscious practice is indeed for every body.

If you can't smile then you're doing this wrong

I have been practicing Yoga for 5 years and now wish to share the knowledge of self and Yoga I have collected with others.  My classes are casual and a great place to start a practice or to grow your practice reaching for more advanced poses.  I am an RYT 200, trained in CPR and First Aid in the event of any emergency.  I have studied Yoga for Trauma, Chair and Chakra Yoga as I reach into the deeply personal healing work I feel called for.  I am also a Local Church Lay Servant in the United Methodist Church.

As a Reikimaster, Kat is an alleviator of the body. Motivated to teach and help others getting their minds out to connect with body and breath, to be more present. Practicing yoga since her freshmen quarter Fall 1997 at CalPoly, her practice deepened as the years passed. Teaching yoga informally while teaching surf lessons for Sandbar Surf Company with her surfing dog Saint since 2013, she will guide you into asana, breathwork, and meditation. Restorative, yin, gentle, flow and alignment oriented yoga are emphasized. Tapping into the nectar of yoga, she provides a cushion from which to sit on and come into balance with. As a certified Ayurveda Wellness Counselor, she can incorporate diet and asana recommendations to achieve balance within. Being in the field of healthcare for over a dozen years as a certified phlebotomist technician, lab assistant, nurse assistant, and nursing student, she is motivated for self-care. Her many years of mechanical engineering, nursing, biochemistry, biological sciences help her see the anatomical, physiological aspects and importance for alignment. Studying the Patanjali's Sutras, yogic philosophy, and original texts, she has aligned herself with ancient wise theories. Applying them to form and function is an everyday practice.

I'm Kate Gruber, a RYT200 yoga teacher excited to share my love of yoga with you. Although yoga intrigued me since high school gym classes where the teacher just played a yoga video (those were my favorite gym days!), I began practicing regularly in 2014. Looking for something new to do on a vacation, I stumbled across a hot flow yoga studio and decided to give it a try.

Kathleen's first yoga instructor was her mother, who began teaching yoga when Kathleen was a teenager. Kathleen found yoga extremely helpful for her back pain related to scoliosis. She introduced it to many friends during college to reduce stress and dove deeper into her practice during a semester abroad in India. She enjoys sharing her love of yoga with others by helping them gain greater body awareness and most importantly, relax.

Keri Honea has, in all honesty, not been practicing yoga for decades. She was talked into trying out yoga with a friend in 2014. Keri begrudgingly went, strongly believing that yoga was just a bunch of hippie dippie baloney. By her first class, she was HOOKED. A few months in, she wanted to be a teacher. Yoga completely changed her life. As such, she couldn’t keep it all to herself. She had to share yoga with others and hopefully change their lives the way only yoga can.
