Welcome to our Yoga Shala

Welcome to our Yoga Shala

If you asked 100 people what the word “yoga” means you may get 100 different answers. At The Iron Cactus, we are striving to teach and demonstrate what the meaning of the word “yoga” is.

We believe yoga is about acceptance, peace, joy, groundedness, spirit, God, a spiritual journey, self-realization, giving back, love, light, breath, movement, and meditation. We believe these words equal LIFE. One of our top desires is to help make these words meaningful and impactful in your life, and our own.

We encourage all who attend a yoga class or anywhere on the property to encompass some, dare we say all, of these very important and impactful words. Maybe try setting an intention for your class with one of these words. It’s impactful.

“I don’t know if I can do it” - “Everyone is looking at me” - “I’m not good at it”

We’re here to tell you > You.Have.Done.Harder.Things!!  

All are invited to every class, beginners and seasoned. We list class descriptions for every class in the scheduling section. Please check them out and if you have any other questions please feel free to ask us.

There’s a gentle kind of prayer that begins in the heart.
