See you on the mat!

Friday Equinox Yoga Cancelled. Get your Equinox on Thursday!


Due to a marketing glitch, the Spring Equinox Yoga scheduled for Friday, March 21st has been cancelled.  Two great options remain:  FIRST, celebrate the ACTUAL Equinox on Thursday, March 20th at 7:30 PM at Yoga Sakti in Salem.  We will be there to explore the power of balance when the day and the night are absolutely equal. Dynamic Yoga, $15, and some dharma to bring you to spring.  SECONDLY, mark your calendars for Saturday, June 21st when we will celebrate the Summer Solstice with a Yoga Mala, a series of 108 Surya Namaskar/Sun Salutations that will bring the sun straight into your heart. Jesse Ciarmataro will play this gig so your Mala and fire will be accompanied by 2 hours of incredible live vibe.  This workshop will be posted soon on the Yoga Sakti website.  Spring is coming and we’ll be there to welcome it with you on Thursday night.  See you on the mat.


SpringEquinoxFinalTwice a year, the night and the day balance.  Equinox — literally “equal night” — balances both the light of the day and the dark of the night.  Just as Siva and Sakti are the masculine and female balance, as gravity balances energy, this is a night to explore how dark balances light, both within ourselves and in the world.  Join us at Yoga Sakti in Salem at 7:30 PM on Friday, March 21st for an evening of dynamic yoga vinyasa with Kat Mansfield’s practical spirituality and freeing directive , the pulse of Jess Ciarmataro’s alternative R & B electronic indie soul and a candlelight meditation designed to bring you deep and send you forward, refreshed and empowered, into the spring.



Before you do whatever it is you are doing on New Years Eve, get your evolution on. Spend 90 minutes on your mat with YOGA MAMA and the Yoga Sakti sangha (community of practice). Connect with your powerful and joyful vinyasa practice, live music and a deep candlelight meditation as an engaging and out-of-the-box way to approach 2014.  This year, resolve to evolve.  

  • Tuesday, December 31st
  • 5-6:30 PM
  • $15  Preregistration is HIGHLY recommended as the last event sold out.

Dark and Quiet


As the days deepen toward the Solstice on December 21st and we look ahead to the Gregorian and Julian new year, Yoga Mama is already creating opportunities for you — and herself — to practice more.  Grounding on the mat is essential this time of year, a chance to get the Walmart off of us, to leave behind the holiday party chatter and gossip, the material tsunami and the general over-animation that pervades this time of year.  

We don’t need huge New Year’s Resolutions to pull us forward into January.  All we need it some time on the mat (and structured time helps for sure), a lot of water and a great big heart of compassion.  Welcome, dark and quiet Winter.

In addition to Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30 AM and 7:30 PM, Yoga Mama is teaching the following through the holidays and beyond.
