The Durga Studio
The Durga Studio is a
like-minded community of people whose roots are based in Yoga, an ancient discipline that explores, develops, and integrates the body, mind, and spirit.
The Durga Studio offers class sessions throughout the year as well as monthly workshops, immersions and community gatherings in a beautiful historic healing sanctuary. Courses offered include nature-based yoga, teen yoga, and meditation, along with workshops in related topics including spirituality, the Divine Feminine, a women’s Red Tent, nature, and the arts. The Durga Studio features classes taught by Dr. Jennifer Sundeen, who has over twenty years of teaching experience and over forty years of practice, as well as other trained professional instructors who foster a non-competitive and encouraging atmosphere. There is also a small boutique space with clothing, sacred jewelry, homemade art, and yoga, earth, goddess and spiritual-related items.
The Durga Studio is a reflection of that devotion and is in truth a Goddess Temple without walls. The business model is circular, one of inclusion rather than hierarchy, and supports the idea that we all hold inside of us an inner healer and artist, and to that end welcomes the gifts our community has to offer. The more we embrace each other, the wider our circle of Love will grow. Durga has many arms after all.
