The Sage Studio is peaceful and intimate and all people are welcome!

The serene rustic setting immediately draws you in, allowing the mind to shut off and the body to slip away. Our goal is not to overcomplicate things; we feel life does that on its own. Simply come prepared to have fun as you take the journey inward, tuning out the bustling world around you. We aspire to have you leave feeling realigned with the inner source.

At Sage Studio, we believe life is about choices and taking conscious steps in a direction chosen by you, rather than for you. Exercising your freedom of choice is the surest way to move into a future you create.

Through your dedication to the mat and our dedication to instruction, we can increase your flexibility and your ability to be supple in the face of change. Our trained staff is here to challenge you, knowing that is where real strength lies.

Our classes range from strengthening and athletic to gentle and therapeutic, offering a mix of influences and traditions. Modifications are always offered, and all levels are welcome.

Yoga is for everyone!

Prairie Yoga Studio Peaceful

Yoga Retreats

A yoga retreat is a weekend submersion in yoga and self-pampering at the Prairie Guest House. Activities include daily yoga classes, meditation, relaxing, massage therapy, cooking, and discussions of yoga philosophy and wellness. Participants “check out” of the stress of everyday life to “check in” with themselves. A retreat with Karen and other certified teachers is being planned for April of 2017.
