Our philosophy: Group energy is tremendously healing

We offer small classes and workshops on Madison’s Near East Side.
All are welcome.

Insight stands in solidarity against racial injustice

Insight recognizes that the recent episodes of brutality against people of color are just a small part of the systemic oppression that so many people in our community endure.
 We at Insight remain committed to supporting lasting change in our society, starting with ourselves. We are taking time to listen, to learn, to believe, and to thoughtfully move ourselves and our community toward change. We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We are dedicated to healing the deep wounds of racism. We will work tirelessly to transform trauma while advocating for systemic change.

Our in-person yoga classes are paused until further notice in an effort to contribute to social distancing. 
We consider this an act of compassion toward our community.
However, Insight Yoga continues to offer online classes and workshops from the safety of your own space! See our offerings below.


Grateful Yoga and Meditation 

As we continue to stay safe at home, especially as we enter into the holiday season, join this virtual yoga class as a reminder that we are “alone together”.  This class combines mindful movement and meditation to manifest a sense of connection; both within ourselves and also to the world around us at a time where connection can be difficult.  While moving intentionally through yoga poses, we will incorporate breath work to cultivate compassion, inner strength and a sense of gratitude.

Date: Thursday – November, 26
Time: Noon to 1:00 p.m.
Instructor: Ariyanna Toth
Cost: $15 drop-in or use your class pass. Registration is required.
