**Restorative Yoga**

A restorative pose is any pose in which the arrangement of your bones, the support of props, and the gentle pressure of gravity work together to rechannel the breath,”
This class is appropriate for anyone looking to relax and restore after a busy week. With the help of essential oils, we slowly, gently support the body to open to shapes and stretches that enable a finer connection to breath. We'll be using oils that help us breathe as we move into chillier fall weather. No yoga experience required. The class is offered the first Saturday of the month from 9:45-10:45 with an essential oil class to follow till noon.

The Freehold Yoga Center has been a haven of peace, harmony and spirituality for Yoga students since its opening in 1986.

Our center is steeped in yogic tradition and encompasses two floors in a historic building in downtown Freehold. The center houses two large classrooms as well as our beautiful meditation room which provides sanctuary and a quiet, welcoming room for all who wish to practice meditation.  Please view Photo Gallery for pictures of our Asana rooms.

Students will find themselves immersed in the traditional, peaceful atmosphere and surroundings of a center which follows the Sivananda Yoga Style of instruction.


We offer Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Yoga Classes:

In 2016, the Freehold Yoga Center celebrated 30 years of yoga instruction in Monmouth County, NJ. We offer yoga classes seven days a week for all levels from Beginner Yoga Courses to special Yoga workshops. Our philosophy at the Center is that anyone can do yoga. If you can breathe, you can do yoga. We offer expert instruction in our Beginner Yoga classes so that upon completion, you can easily move to an intermediate yoga class or open class.

We focus on the core aspects that define Yoga, the union of body, mind and spirit. Pranayama (breathing techniques), Savasana (relaxation) and Asana (postures) being the core components of our teaching. Beyond Asana practice, we offer Meditation, Satsang, Restorative Yoga, Special Workshops and lectures on Yoga philosophy.

More than a place to practice, you will find that the Center will become your home, your safe haven, your sanctuary and retreat.
