Yoga Tune-Up Center South Bay

YTU is an integrated system derived from classical yoga and physical therapy rehabilitation techniques. Yoga Tune Up(R) will expand your flexibility and improve your strength.  Innovative sequencing regenerates and heals muscle tissues while toning and stretching.  This class is challenging but accessible to all levels. Yoga Tune Up(R) complements and supports your stronger yoga practice as well as other athletic routines.

We will post the upcoming in-depth workshops and trainings on the workshop area.  Refer also to the specialized articles posted below.

One on one guidance can be helpful for a variety of reasons. This can tune up or refine an existing practice.  It can jump start a new practice or any level of beginner.  A private class can address physical limitations due to injuries or stress.  Private instruction can take the form of mentoring and consultation for yoga teachers.

Check our blog for upcoming Yoga Tune Up(R) classes, or Contact Kent for more information or scheduling questions. Many of our instructors can also provide one on one instruction
