Helen Maxwell
E-ryt 500
founder & instructor

 Having thoroughly enjoyed and taught many thousands of hours of yoga instruction, Helen is honored to help aspiring students on their journey to become teachers and enjoys sharing her love of yoga with ALL. Over 25 years ago, yoga was hard to find in SW Virginia. It never occurred to Helen to become a teacher as no one had ever encouraged this idea.  Realizing that other people may need a gentle nudge to move toward their goals began this new movement, you don't need the desire to become a teacher, yoga brings clarity to our lives through the connection to an inner teacher and helps us to be authentic and move from our true hearts. Let us help you connect to that. Helen is the lead teacher and director in the globally certified, b Yoga 200hr Teacher Training program. Helen enjoys spending time with her four children, reading, hiking the Blue Ridge Mountains, and staring at the night sky


We are open for private classes, workshops and trainings.

Let me design a class for your specific needs.
