Why Point Bliss Yoga?
At Point Bliss Yoga, we believe that yoga is for everyone.
Rachel was lucky enough to discover yoga in her teens and has seen how transformational a regular practice can be. Unfortunately, due to misconceptions about yoga, many people will never even try yoga. Even worse, past experiences may have poisoned yoga for some individuals.
That's why Rachel created Point Bliss Yoga. She wants to show that yoga is not only for the flexible, thin, and wealthy. In fact, yoga is not only about the physical practice. Yoga is about a better state of being, and it's available to everyone.
A number of studies have shown that a regular yoga practice offers a number of physical and mental benefits, and we wanted to create an inclusive environment where everyone would feel comfortable enough to take advantage of this practice. We welcome both beginners and seasoned practitioners. If you've never been to a yoga class and don't know what to expect, you can read our blog entry about a typical class. And, of course, we invite you to try a class online for just $5 each. We also offer an unlimited plan that gives you full access to our video library and the ability to take as many life classes as you like. Just $30/month, and you can try it free for 7 days.

Why a sparrow?
We chose a sparrow as our logo because they represent joy, simplicity, and community. The sparrow represents our mission of helping yogis learn about and expand their practice in a supportive, joyful atmosphere.
