Agni Yoga Studio is a small studio in the heart of downtown Twisp Washington, surrounded by mountains, rivers and the impeccable beauty of nature. Because Agni means "Fire" in sanskrit, we have created a space that is heated by FAR infrared heat. Infrared provides a therapeutic and deep penetrating form of heat that detoxifies the body by expelling toxins and pollutants. Each class varies with tempature and is noted on the class schedule. All classes offered at Agni are suitable for everyone, regardless of experience.
Yoga unites the mind, body, and soul in a way that eases tension, reduces inflammation, and promotes health and well being. Regular practice will help you improve and perfect poses, correct posture and positioning, and improve your breathing and outlook on life.

A slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time. For beginners, it may range from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more.
Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body (the tendons, fascia, and ligaments) with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
This class is excellent for beginners and students who are looking for a slow and quiet practice.
