Yoga for Every Body
You do not have to fit into yoga poses
Baltimore Yoga Village extends our work into the community. Please help us continue offering our 10 free weekly classes in Baltimore’s more underserved areas and to offer teacher training scholarships which will serve to diversify Baltimore’s yoga teaching population and ultimately open doors for those who otherwise would not participate and greater healing in our city.
We recognize that in an ideal world these appeals would not be even necessary. However, we know that for the world to look the way we would like to see it, where everyone has opportunities, choices, and representation, there are some steps we must take along the way.
Please help us to do our part, a necessary part in welcoming more of our beautiful Baltimore to the practices and teachings of yoga; and by doing so, we actually live our mission of yoga as unity, not only of individual body, mind, and spirit, but also of neighborhoods, and communities.

The Jivan Yoga Teacher Training at Baltimore Yoga Village is a comprehensive and experiential training for those interested in studying the essence of classical yoga practices, theories, and roots with additional mentorship possibilities for those interested in teaching. The program is not designed to make you a “Jivan Yoga” teacher; rather it is designed to bring your natural voice so that all communication including teaching is direct, honest, non-performative, relaxed, and free.
Did you know Baltimore Yoga Village offers many pricing options including 5, 10, and 25 class cards, as well as drop in options?
Join Anjali and Jean-Jacques for a yoga retreat in the Andes Mountain range, Sacred Valley of Peru with support of traditional plant ceremonies. More than a New Year’s Resolution, traditional medicines for awakening offer deeper insights into your consciousness for discovery and potential healing.
Ayurveda (आयुवेद’) is one of the oldest natural healing systems in the planet, with roots on the Indian subcontinent. A sister science to yoga, it is both a preventative and healing medical science, which helps each individual move toward a state of total balance. In Ayurveda each person is treated as unique and the relationship between client and practitioner is sacred.
“Baltimore Yoga Village is the best studio in town. There is an authenticity that cannot be matched.”
“I wanted to give you a tangible example of what yoga has brought to my life. Over the last few years, I had often turned to alcohol as a means of coping. Last night at work one of our patients was dying a very horrible death. I briefly considered stopping on the way home to buy some wine, as I had often done in the past. I decided instead to come home, take a long soothing warm shower, then roll …
Anjali’s studio has good energy and the people were very friendly – very good experience
It’s hard to imagine the orchestration that must go into scheduling and delivering the variety of events from meditation to yoga, Kirtan chanting, teacher training, dance medicine, special guest workshops, community potlucks, and more – that Baltimore Yoga Village offers at two locations, but somehow the staff pulls it off seamlessly.
” I really feel like I’m thriving under Deborah’s guidance. Did I mention that I am a fan? She reads us a poem during our starting and ending meditations, and there’s just a thoughtfulness about her that is rare”.
“I find this comforting that teachers here are trying to learn about their students and create a class that speaks to each person involved.”
Been going to BYV for years, after trying other places. It is an inviting atmosphere and offers just what I need; they offer a wide spectrum of approaches and teachers. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in yoga.
As I have told Anjali, Deborah and some of the other teachers I have encountered since re-starting my yoga practice after a 30 year hiatus, I am so happy and grateful…
Amazing studio with instructors who are the real thing: careful and focused! – Anne K.
