SoundYoga in West Seattle
Virtual online Yoga classes
We may have closed our physical doors for a while but we haven’t stopped teaching. In the new world of social distancing SoundYoga has continued to offer virtual Yoga classes that bring us together and support us emotionally, physically and spiritually. If you haven’t tried a virtual Yoga class, please watch the above inspiring video of SoundYoga students talking about their experience.

Students are enjoying online classes and getting a lot of benefit from practicing with SoundYoga during the Covid-19 quarantine. Watch the short video to hear what students are saying:
“I’m 80 now and I catch colds easily. If I am in a small space and someone coughs then I catch it. When I heard you were going virtual I was so happy to know I could come back to Yoga classes at SoundYoga. You have created a very special space. The teachers… the students… and the environment… I always feel so relaxed after class and less stressed. Flexibility and strength that I lost are returning.
I do some conscious breathing and my mind relaxes. Thank goodness for virtual and in person Sound Yoga!!!”
If you’re new to Yoga or simply looking for the right place to stretch your body and mind, SoundYoga is for you.
If you’re an established Yoga student tired of competing for floor space, mats, or being one of 40 people in a Yoga class, SoundYoga is for you.
In fact, we’re so sure you’ll enjoy the SoundYoga experience, we’re offering your first class for free.
*Only for people who are new to SoundYoga.
SoundYoga is just what you are looking for. . .
We offer small group classes (10 max), to support personal growth, through individualized yoga instruction, in a beautiful studio with heated bamboo floors.
In SoundYoga’s peaceful setting we focus on you, your body and your breath – practicing with a few other students under the guidance of well-trained Yoga instructors. We offer a variety of classes, each adapted to individual’s needs, body types, health status, and personal life goals.
SoundYoga’s teachers are all Certified Yoga Teachers in the tradition of Krishnamacharya, a distinction rare to most yoga studios, and focus on adapting postures to the individual, sequencing them optimally, and ascribing therapeutic value to specific movements and breathing.
SoundYoga also provides classes in corporate settings, weekend workshops on special topics, Yoga Therapy in a one-on-one setting, and certified 500 hour teacher training. For home use, we also offer a video that incorporates yoga and light weights entitled “Strong Bones Yoga.”

What Is Yoga?
Yoga has been used for more than 5000 years to unite mind, body, and spirit. In Yoga we combine movement, breath, meditation, and sound to calm the mind, stretch and strengthen the body, and bring a sense of well-being and joy to our souls. Read more …
Why Is Yoga Good For Us?
Many national and international studies have shown that yoga can improve our health and well-being. Yoga increases flexibility and improves posture and balance. It reduces stress by lowering stress hormones and increasing circulation to our organs with focused breathing. Yoga strengthens our muscles and bones. It can help to relieve pain in some conditions by increasing blood flow. Yoga improves brain function by integrating the right and left sides of your brain through movement.
Who Is Yoga For?
Everyone, regardless of age, ability, or experience can benefit from Yoga. Depending on the student and the goal it might be employed to reduce stress, increase flexibility, relieve pressure on a certain part of the body or to develop better focus, strength and peace of mind. Read more …
“I arrive at class knowing that Chris has a plan for us that day…which she attends to diligently. This allows me to focus on my poses and movement and not wonder “what’s next?’. Her voice is crystal clear. Her check-ins, meditations and chants make class a full body/mind/spirit work-out. My practice at Sound Yoga is a very important part of my life thanks to Chris.”
“Yoga, what a scary notion for a 72 year old man to contemplate. I pretty much always considered yoga to be too woo woo for me. But given my aging body, stiff joints, increasingly poor balance I knew I had to do something.
My wife introduced me to Chris and her studio in West Seattle. A couple of things about Chris and her mode – no bs and no jargon. Very welcoming. I now take two classes a week. One of which is a combination of yoga and weight training. Very rigorous and I’m the only guy in the class.
I must say my flexibility, strength and balance have all improved. The bottom line, my golf swing and score are noticeably improved. Works for me.”
