Our Origin Story
We were born out of a passion for outreach. After practicing yoga for the last 20 years, Kary Sinkule began wondering how she could bring yoga to those who need it most- the overworked, the unable, and the under-served. To reach these people, convenience was the name of the game. The movement had to be fueled by flexibility and a willingness to join people in every step of the journey. So we thought outside the four walls of our studio and created Yoga's Arc.
A year later, we're even more energized to keep changing the mindset of what yoga can look like. To us, yoga looks like coworkers sharing in morning rejuvenation. Yoga looks like a healing breakthrough for a stroke survivor in her own living room. Yoga looks exactly how you envision it. With more than 20 instructors across the Valley, we're growing fast, and we're excited to meet you wherever you are in your yoga journey.
Kary brought me back to life, and challenged me to push myself while believing that I actually could do what she was asking me to do. She taught me about my breath and body, in ways that have resulted in ongoing health as I no longer get sick as often as i used to. Perhaps most importantly, however, is that she turned our power yoga class into an encouraging community of women, who celebrated each other's accomplishments. This is the type of community that Kary fostered, a rare group of women who cheer each other on.
Kary has a way of making you feel wanted. Her vibe radiates “yoga is for anyone & everyone”. Before meeting Kary I thought yoga was only for certain types of women and felt intimidated by yoga studios and classes. I’m beyond grateful for Kary and all her teachings. She just has a way of teaching that conforms the soul.
One of the reasons I love Kary as a yoga teacher is that she stresses that even though we all will be doing the same pose, each of us will look different. There is no "one" right way to do a pose. Kary is also so very good at assisting us in finding that perfect position. I am so grateful for her.
I took my first yoga class from Kary several years ago. I hadn’t done yoga before but had been hearing of its benefits. Kary was the right person to be teaching! She was amazing at putting me at ease.
