Purna Yoga classes

The aim of Purna Yoga is to connect students to their heart center, while working mindfully and safely in the physical body. Our classes emphasize the foundations.  Whether you are absolutely new to yoga, or have practiced for many years, the foundations are always at play.  Learn techniques to help build flexibility, strength, tone, relaxation, focus, balance, endurance and much more in a way that opens your heart and welcomes light, love and beauty into your life.

Modifications are offered to support the most beginner student while also allowing a seasoned practitioner to feel challenged. The classes may seem demanding at times but rest assured that your teachers are well trained and will offer you the proper props and tools so your practice is safe and moves you towards your edge organically.

Level 1

This class is great for all levels with an emphasis on the foundations for a safe, effective and heart opening practice.

Intermediate Meditation and Asana

This class is not open to new students.  Students must have a minimum of one month practicing at All Life is Yoga before contacting Rutu to participate.

Unwind | Restorative Purna Yoga

Unwind from you day with gentle stretches, slow movement, supported postures and deep breathing. Emphasis is placed on decompressing and creating ease in the body and mind.  The intention is to support the body and allow the muscles and organs to relax thereby allowing for rejuvenation and restoration in the gross to subtle body. Highly recommended for everyone living life and esp. useful for those rehabilitating from minor injuries, conditions such as high blood pressure, anxiety, fatigue,  etc. also a great balance to a vigorous practice.  If there are major injuries or conditions, such as parkinson’s, fibromyalgia, heard conditions, hip replacements, lower back injuries, knee replacements, etc contact Rutu for private sessions.


Learn to connect with your spirit in your Heart Center through meditation and guided imagery. We recommend attending at least four classes to give yourself the chance to feel the difference meditation can make in your life. Unlike other forms of meditation, Purna Yoga Meditation does not initially focus on quieting the mind. Instead, the mind is taught to listen to and act upon the wisdom of the heart.

Concentrate in the heart. Enter into it; go within and deep and far, as far as you can. Gather all the strings of your consciousness that are spread abroad, roll them up and take a plunge and sink down. A fire is burning there in the deep quietude of the heart. It is the Divinity in you – your true being. Hear its voice, follow its dictates. - The Mother, Pondicherry, India
