Kinfolk Yoga is a neighborhood studio. Welcome to our intimate community studio where we offer approachable, intelligent instruction and warmth that reaches well beyond the physical practices. Since 2013, we have built a community of highly skilled, experienced teachers committed to their offerings. We embrace small-class culture, treat you with respect and dignity, and are deeply invested in shaping the conversation of yoga both inside the studio and in the wider community. We have created an inviting studio that is accessible to all with an intimate atmosphere for locals and visitors to unwind.
We are committed to no specific method, and at this point we value the tradition itself, as well as equity, safety, transparency, sustainability, inclusion and empathy in instruction. As a community we are actively working toward being more accessible. True beginners, students seeking relief from stress or injury, seasoned teachers wishing to hone your voice or practice in community, seniors wanting to maintain mobility, folks delving deeper into meditation or devotional practices, welcome home. Our teachers share a common approach to teaching you: they see you, they hear you, and they encourage you forward without forcing your steps. Located in the heart of Grass Valley with Nevada City/Grass Valley's historic architecture. Your Community. Your Yoga.

"I have been a student at Kinfolk Yoga since it first opened and I always look forward to the classes that I take there each week. One of the things that I most appreciate about Kinfolk's teachers is that they "teach people, not poses" (to borrow a phrase I read on Facebook). They offer guidance to students to enable each to achieve maximum benefit from the practice of yoga, while recognizing, as Osho put it, "Nobody is superior, nobody is inferior, but nobody is equal either. People are simply unique, incomparable." I also find the studio space at Kinfolk to be very conducive for my practice; the translation of the word, "asana," is a "comfortable seat," and I find the historic stone wall and plank woodwork encourage a sense of comfort as students search for their own unique edge between too much and not enough effort. I am very grateful to have the space, teachers, and fellow students at Kinfolk as part of my life." -Gene Barber
