Monthly Gong Meditation

Saturday, July 14, 2018
10:45 AM

Donation requested: $10 per person

Treat your body to a lovely bath of sound. Tune in, tune up, and recenter with gong meditation. Allow your body to vibrate at a different frequency as you rest in a supported savasana, sound pulses washing over your body and mind, dropping your into a state of relaxation and stillness.


Martha’s Vineyard Yoga Vacation – September 1-9, 2018

Jim Keegan will host this vacation retreat at an amazing Victorian house on the beach (yes, this is an actual view from the porch).

The $1,100 package fee includes lodging, two meals per day (a breakfast chef!), ferry transportation to/from the island, and daily morning yoga (90 min sessions). There will be plenty of time to explore!

Fine Print: Airfare is separate. Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. A $500 non-refundable deposit reserves your spot for the trip (space is limited, and last year we had a waiting list)! Please note: this deposit is non-refundable. Questions? Please feel free to email us!



Third Thursday Happy Hour to be continued soon! 

Stand by for news about the next happy hour — Third Thursdays will be intermittent over the summer.

When we have them, we encourage you to join your yoga family for an evening of good food and great company — no mats required. It’s always a blast, and a great way to get to know the community!
Listen/watch for announcements in the studio and RSVP the next time you’re in class — look for a sign-up sheet by the blackboard or email us at with the subject line “Third Thursday.”

200-hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT)!

Yoga Nirvana offers the finest instruction for teacher training

At Yoga Nirvana Studio, Teacher Training is not a casual commitment, nor is it an automatic entry. Students of yoga who are interested in pursuing YNS Teacher Training must apply in person, and schedule an admission interview if your application is accepted. All applications will be considered, and students who are accepted into the program commit to fully participate in an immersive and comprehensive learning experience.

The screening process for YTT includes a written application and in-person interview. 

Questions? Learn more about our YTT program at this link:

Do good in the world, and tell us about it! 

We are always on the lookout for new and cool ways to build community. Got ideas? let us know!

Yoga Nirvana started taking our studio’s collective yoga practice to the next level. Our goal? Build community by giving back to the community. The Karma Yoga Project is what we called our efforts to practice yoga off the mat for the benefit of our community. If you know of something going on that fits this philosophy, please share it with the studio

Toeveryone at the studio who supported our project last year and who continue to encourage positive, proactive energy to support the local and larger community, THANK YOU! 

  • In September, you helped support the Red Cross and survivors of Hurricane Harvey. Thank you for your donations!
  • In October, we had two events: the Pedal Haus Oktoberfest yoga event raised over $500 for the Humane Society of AZ, and Team Yoga Nirvana helped to raise over $500 for the American Cancer Society at the Making Strides walk at Tempe Beach Park.
  • In November, we held a canned food (or funds) collection to benefit St. Mary’s Food Bank, where every dollar donated results in seven meals.
  • In December, we participated in the Brain Cancer Walk, AND provided gifts to a needy Tempe family for Christmas. Our time and donations made a real difference at the local level — thanks for making the holiday brighter for others!
  • In January,
    people participated in Tempe’s “Zero Waste Day” events in Tempe. Your mindfulness helps the planet! Go superheroes!

    Full Haus for the Humane Society benefit!
