Welcome back yogis!!!
Reuniting, as a community, has never been more important.
We all so much need our practice of YOGA to cultivate hope, humanity, pride, acceptance and love.
To achieve this and more we all must do our part to keep ourselves and our fellow YFTH members healthy and safe!
Our comprehensive studio reopening plan is comprised of every guideline set forth by Governor Lamont’s “Reopen CT” sector rules, as well as those of the CDC. These standards will empower all of us to do what we love, with no worries.
Thank you so much for your support and cooperation.

As the Studio reopens, we will continue to livestream several classes a week and add them to our Class Library. We love our new hybrid Virtual and In-Studio membership. This allows you to get the quantity of classes in a week that you love, but also come to the Studio for your favorites!
I can’t recommend Diane’s classes enough! She is warm, friendly, encouraging and her classes are my favorite kind—challenging vinyasa flows with fun transitions and new sequences each and every time. And such a positive energy! I leave every class revitalized, sweaty, and knowing I’ll be feeling it the next day. I love how she pays attention to everyone’s skill level and makes adjustments so you can power up or power down helping everyone find their edge regardless of where they are in their practice. Plus, she regularly throws new and more advanced expressions of poses in the mix keeping class (and yoga, in general!) fresh and exciting. I can’t say enough positive things about Diane and her classes!
Thank you for being so authentic in your Yoga practice. I am grateful for the open-hearted practice you lead.
Words really can not express how grateful I am to you. Your beautiful soul, your words, your kind heart truly helped me to get through some tough days and also helped me notice the good ones. Your story, the loss of your niece, and decision to stay with your teacher training during such a difficult time inspired me tor econsider my decision to quit! Thank you for being you, for sharing your heart,for reminding me that no matter what happens, I can get through with an open heart, my practice and surrounding myself with love
