Yoga Mendocino has been a yoga-based community non-profit organization in Ukiah, CA for many years. The organization is now closed, but our website will stay active until the end of year. Please use it to find referrals to classes and other resources. May it nourish your body, mind, heart, and spirit.

Our goal through the years has been to offer yoga and meditation workshops for all levels, to host inspiring educational, musical, and inspirational events, to provide yoga and meditation to those who may not be able to engage with it otherwise, and to share resources to help you find the sanctuary within you. 

We appreciate each and every person who has ever been part of our beloved community. May we stay connected in this great web of life. Namaste!

The Poetry of Yoga – Reflections from Maggie Norton

I have always found poetry to offer me an almost magical combination of insight, inspiration, and clarity - helping me to pause, shift my perspective, and breathe. A mindful yoga practice has similar benefits for the mind and heart (not to mention the body!). I find...

Yoga Mendocino you will always have a special space in my heart. I came to YOMO after being Burned over 60% of my body in the Redwood Valley/Potter Valley 2017 Wildfires. I was grief stricken and did not recognize my new body. My Spirit was struggling. Through Yomo, I can stand today with my face to the Sun.

My aches drastically lessened. I breathe easier. I have found community and a safe haven to experience life. Legs that once struggled to stand feel grounded and strong.

Mike Lloyd

I’ve met kind and supportive people, both in the meditation sessions and yoga classes. When I started at YoMo I was very bitter and cynical about almost everything. To tell the truth, I secretly perceived meditation and yoga as self-centered and self-indulgent.

But I have received so much by now that has exponentially enabled me to give to others, like I never knew how to do before. For that, I am infinitely grateful.

Lisa Vance

I have so much in my heart and soul that my words just can’t begin to describe. Yoga Mendocino reaches out into our community, and I am one of the many individuals who loves, appreciates, respects, and cherishes this blessing.

I’m exhausted in every way on my own roller coaster ride of this year 2020 and I am also automatically applying so many of the tools I have learned through YoMo.

Noelle Austin

Yoga Mendocino is a beautiful, humble space equipped with props for all body types and needs. I got to try Integrative Therapeutic Yoga with Julia Landis, Yoga for Spine and Sleep with Darca Nicholson, and Intermediate/Advanced Hatha with Iris Padgett.

Each teacher was unique, genuine, and welcoming. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here, and will be back when I’m in town.

Dorsey Manogue

I started my yoga practice 5 years ago after my husband of 33 years died suddenly in his sleep. I was looking for a place to de-stress, hoping to be able to sleep…I never realized what it would do for my entire life. It definitely improved those issues,but also helped w/ so much more ie, strength, flexibility, balance.

I’ve made new friends, reconnected w/ old ones and traveled “across the pond” all in a more centered, grounded way.
