Why Yoga?

Yoga is for everyone. It’s a time to let go of the outside world as you connect your mind and body, letting go of stress and worries. It’s learning tools for taking this peacefulness off the mat into the world, bringing a sense of calm to yourself and those around you.

What Should I Bring?

A yoga mat (or borrow one of ours) and water bottle. If you have other props, please feel free to bring those to class or borrow from the studio. We also offer a variety of props for purchase to use both in class and for your home practice. Please ask if you are unsure what props you might need for a particular class.

What Should I Wear?

Comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely.

I’m not very flexible, but I’d love to try yoga. What do you recommend?

You do not need to be flexible to practice yoga. Yoga is a system of movement and meditation with many benefits. It may help you improve your flexibility over time— as well as your strength, your balance, your body awareness, your connection to mind and body…the list goes on. Every body is built differently and our teachers are trained to work with students across a broad spectrum of physiques and physical abilities. 

Why Dharamsala TC?

“Dharamsala” literally means “a spiritual dwelling” and in loose translation as a shelter or rest house for pilgrims and travelers.” WikiTravel

Yoga in Traverse City at Dharamsala TC

Why did we choose the name Dharamsala TC?

We love the word’s reference to a shelter, a community gathering and holistic wellness space.  We welcome local residents as well as visitors to our beautiful city.

Dharamsala TC is a space to connect for all ages and abilities – babies, children, teens, families, adults and seniors. It’s a “rest house” where you might share a cup of tea or enjoy a quiet meditation. And while you’re there, connect mind and body through yoga. Or study and learn in an educational workshop or special event.

Dharamsala TC is an oasis, a sanctuary from the busy outside world. Because it’s a space to connect and develop a greater sense of community, we can learn from each other.  Because when we join together we are able to enjoy peace, connection and community.
