Please be patient with us as we all weather this storm. We are here to support you as we make the decision to temporarily close our physical doors and go online. As of March 21 we are incorporating LIVE online classes via ZOOM. We are in the process of updating our schedule on MindBody AND our Schedule Menu Item above.
Join us for LIVE Classes with our teachers on ZOOM!
2. Go to ZOOM or if you have a Zoom account, log in and click "Join a Meeting"

(samaKim, samaAnna, samaSarah...)
3. Set up your mat, grab water and your props (couch cushions, dictionary, hand-towel) while you wait for the teacher to "check you in"
(Set up your mat far enough away from your device/laptop so the teacher can see you)

Each teacher has their own, special "classroom." Check out their link in the Teacher's Section below.
What is next?
From the News Briefings this past weekend (3/29), the Shelter-in-Place Order may extend through April. However, we are continuing to keep updated with the Governor's Daily New's Briefings at 2:30 pm.
We will continue our Online Zoom classes until we receive guidance from the CDC/Governmental Health Authorities to present a process and timetable to return to the Studio safely, for everyone. Again, we are doing everything possible to mitigate our losses during and maintain everyone's wellness at this time. Please continue to support our teachers as we support you in your practice.

Kimberly Brown (owner of Sama Yoga)
Sama is a family-owned yoga studio focused on services to heal the mind, body and align your spirit.
We focus on educating; starting at the beginning (learning to make shapes with your body), then moving forward mindfully (leaning the philosophy of yoga within the pose and life), and finally teaching you to connect and express on and off the mat.
Everything we do at Sama is with the intention of supporting different aspects and stages of life with Yoga.
Since our doors opened in 2014, we have built a family oriented community focused on supporting the health and spirit of the surrounding area.
You'll notice that we work to personalize your practice; we make it a point to know your name, ailments, modifications, favorite poses, and strengths. Over time, and with consistent practice, our teachers are able to support your progression at your own pace. We offer a variety of classes, specialty programs, workshops and training's for you to experience, go deeper, keep practicing, and have fun.
Please check us out, schedule your classes, meet our amazing teachers, be welcomed by other like-minded people, relax, become stronger/more flexible, and laugh with us!
