Yoga for Healthy Aging

At The Yoga Sanctuary, we believe everyone deserves a moment of tranquility. Tucked in the heart of Punta Gorda’s historic district is a small ‘sanctuary’ where you can nurture body, mind, and spirit.
Our mission is to share our passion of yoga with the community by providing a warm, safe environment to develop the tools needed to incorporate yoga into everyday life. We offer the benefits of yoga to people of all ages and experience levels. At our studio, you’ll find a full range of yoga classes, empowering year-round workshops, individualized programs and yoga supplies all designed to support a yogic lifestyle.
Whether you’re interested in a yoga class, private instruction, meditation, or simply want to unwind with a fresh cup of organic tea, The Yoga Sanctuary is your destination to relax, refresh and rejuvenate.
In honoring ahimsa (non-violence), we are also committed to green practices that make our studio safe for the student, as well as the environment.
We serve all of Southwest Florida, including Charlotte County, North Port, and North Fort Myers.
Mindfulness meditation, in the tradition of Vipassana or insight meditation, is a gentle yet thorough meditation technique based in the oldest of Buddhist teachings. It involves paying close attention to sensation and teaches us how to “see things as they are,” ultimately allowing one to see the true nature of existence. Click below for a special series of talks by guest teacher, Carl Eisen, as he leads us through a basic introduction to mindfulness meditation.
The Yoga Sanctuary blog is a great place to learn “all about yoga.” We update our blog at least once a month with new posts about yoga postures, yoga philosophy, ways to bring yoga into your daily life, and more! You’ll even find articles from leading guest teachers from all over the county. Take your time to explore–and if you aren’t finding the answer to your question, let us know and maybe we’ll post about it next!
