    Bliss Yoga Studio Celebrates Ten Years of Yoga & Community!

    From humble beginnings in our previous and first location (the yoga cave:) to our lovely, light-filled studio facing Como Avenue, Bliss Yoga Studio has grown and changed over the years. Our very first yoga class was offered on February 14th in 2007. Beginning with Sheila Burns as the only teacher and Restorative Yoga as the only style of yoga, to our current twelve (12) amazing yoga teachers offering their expertise and personal understanding of several styles of yoga: Vinyasa Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Classical Hatha Yoga, Warm Yoga and more. This is a time of gratitude, reflection and celebration.

    We have seen a lot in the last ten years, including an explosion of interest in yoga and all it has to offer. Now it seems you can practice yoga almost everywhere - in gyms, hospitals and clinics, chiropractic offices and health clubs, work places, libraries, elementary schools, high schools, colleges and universities, parks and outdoor spaces, live streaming classes, and new yoga studios opening seems yoga is here to stay! And that is great news for all of us.

    Thank you to all of you who have been a part of our vibrant and growing community. Whether you have been practicing with Bliss Yoga Studio for ten years or just a few days, thank you. We are here for you and because of you.

    At Bliss Yoga Studio, as we continue to grow and change with the ever-changing landscape of yoga, we promise to stay true to our Vision and Mission Statement that hasn't changed over the years:


    That we all know and realize our True and essential nature which is joy, love and radiant pure Awareness

    Mission Statement

    To provide an environment and authentic teachings from the source of yoga that support discovery and expression of the True Self

    Throughout the month watch for special offers as we celebrate our ten years of joyful dedication to Bliss Yoga Studio and our community of students. Namaste.

    Bliss Yoga Studio Book Club

    We are so excited to announce our Book Club. You may have seen a sign-up sheet posted at the front desk. Cristina Lopez is an avid reader and has participated in and hosted book clubs many times. She is our organizer and moderator!

    We will be kicking off the book club with Yoga and the Pursuit of Happiness (ISBN 978-1626252875), Cristina’s choice as one of her favorite and familiar “yoga” books. She will get us going with some good discussion prompts.

    There will be two meetings:

    Sunday, February 5, 3:30 - 4:30 pm

    Sunday, February 19, 3:30-4:30 pm

    Deepen your practice and get to know your fellow yogis! Join us for discussion based on the book Yoga and the Pursuit of Happiness. We'll address a few very important questions: "What's up with the Self?" "How do I make that Self happier?" or "How do I stay receptive to the Self which is the source of happiness?"

    To participate, please get yourself a copy of the book and then simply show up on the first Sunday (February 5th) a few minutes before the starting time of 3:30 pm. Doors will open at 3:15 pm. Everyone is invited. Light refreshments will be served.

    Bio: Cristina Lopez has been practicing yoga for five years. Her day job is at the University of Minnesota, where works in educational technology. Yoga book clubs combine many of the things she is most passionate about: reading, good conversation, and of course, yoga.

Ayurveda Fall Rejuvenation and Cleanse

Sunday October 30, 2016 

1:30 PM- 4:30 PM 

$59.00 (go to Workshops to enroll)

Ayurvedic  cleansing is about creating a life-practice that can heal, nourish and sustain you so that you transition from one season to the next without feeling the effects of the seasonal changes. Many cleanses offer magic-bullet, fast-acting approaches but they do not address the deeper imbalances of body, mind, and emotions for the long term. An Ayurvedic cleanse helps to cultivate a foundation of optimum health and balance. It works in a subtle, deep way to prepare you for the upcoming season and beyond. A fall cleanse is not a fast- it helps to nourish the tissues and satisfy the mind as you release toxins (ama) from the body and undigested thoughts from the mind.

As we move into the fall season, it’s the ideal time to embrace the Ayurvedic principals for sustainable health to prepare for the long Minnesota winter. The fall rejuvenation cleanse is simple and easy to follow no matter what your schedule. And you will not be hungry!

In this three-hour workshop, we will explore what Ayurveda is, discover our own Prakruti (body type) and where we are imbalanced (Vikruti). We’ll make a delicious batch of kitchari for lunch and review the cleanse that will last approximately 21 days. You will have support throughout the cleanse through a closed Facebook group and 24/7 email and phone support. There will also be Ayurveda products available for sale at a discount.  (Space is limited so please enroll early)

Sunday, October 30, 2016 from 1:30 PM- 4:30 PM, $59.00 at Bliss Yoga Studio, 1565 Como Ave, St Paul, MN 55108. For further information, contact Nora Beckjord at 651-900-0859 or

Taught by Nora Beckjord, CSYT, Certified Yoga Ayurveda Specialist (Himalayan Institute) and Certified in Ayurveda Massage and Shirodhara. Nora is a certified 500 hour RYT.
