200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training

In January 2020, Hemma will hold its first 200-hour Yoga teacher training! I am excited to be bringing this training to Hemma and Victoria.

I have taught 15 trainings in the last 9 years, and every one was different, inspiring and such a joy to be a part of. Each training is different in a way and reflects the students who show up to learn and grow together, as well as where the training is taking place. (more…)


Thank you and…important notice.

Thanks to everyone who helped us celebrate our 12th birthday here at hemma.  We appreciate you all so much and wouldn’t be here without your continued support and commitment to our mission.

*A special NOTE…We will be closed on Monday October 28th so the plumbers can repair some leaks from the upstairs apartments.  We’ll reopen on Tuesday morning with regular business hours.  Sorry if you were planning on coming in on Monday.


Happy Birthday to you!

Watching the local church on Moss and Fairfield get torn down this week, I was reminded of the winds of change – how quickly something can be erased that was so meaningful to so many. When I was a kid, the church in my small home town was the place where people gathered to worship, as well as to connect with one another – to share a meal, lend an ear, and offer a helping hand.

I feel blessed that hemma has been able to exist for as long as it has and has been able to offer so much meaning and support for so many. As churches make way for housing projects, I hope that hemma’s home will be around for many more years of service!  Regardless, our sites are set on the future horizon as we welcome new teachers and new and returning acupuncturists, prepare to launch a yoga teacher training program, and update our website. We’re here for you as long as the Universe allows!

So, drop by and celebrate our 12 years of yoga and acupuncture on Sunday the 20th. All our drop-in yoga classes and acupuncture treatments are free that day! In addition, we’ll be celebrating throughout the month of October in a variety of ways, in case you’re not able to make it to our birthday party.

From the depths of my heart, thank you all for 12 years of enthusiastic support. We wouldn’t be here without you!

In Gratitude,
