YOGA @ BIOMA – IN STUDIO – Classic Hatha Yoga masks, limited class sizes, and social distancing required. 5721 Pimlico Road, 21209

There are many styles/schools of Hatha Yoga, but generally speaking, Hatha Yoga classes are gentle in nature, with a focus on correct alignment for safety and stability, a coordination of breath with movement, and a practice of breathing exercises for mindfulness and focus.

Some of the many benefits Hatha Yoga include heightened body awareness, reduced stress, improved posture and balance, deeper and fuller breathing, stronger muscles, increased joint mobility, strengthened concentration, overall health improvement, and a greater sense of well-being.

Yoga & Art Camp

Exciting One Week Session for Kids 5-9yrs… to learn the fundamentals of yoga as aligned with art exploration. A typical day for your child would start with a morning mediation, followed by a high energy yoga flow where your child learns new poses. Daily art projects that help reinforce their yoga practice such as learning the chakras through painting or creating bracelets that show personal expression. After art, your child will receive a vegetarian snack such as fruit or organic chips and weather permitting, your child will explore the outdoors for an activity around agriculture, collecting objects for art or simply enjoying the vitamin D. Your child will then enjoy another specialized yoga session such as yoga magic, mindfulness activities, yoga games or yoga zoo adventures. Each day will end with a Reflection Circle where your child will share their experiences and settle their minds and bodies for pick up.

COVID protocols: The facility has COVID protocols posted onsite. Bathrooms, knobs, floors, and supplies are all cleaned on schedule. Instructors have been vaccinated and are required to wear masks. Classes are small to ensure the ability to socially distance. Unfortunately, Parents will not be allowed to sit and wait for their child as this increases risk.

I’ve been attending Zoom Yoga classes with Niela for about 2 months. The practice is both energizing and restorative—exactly what I need to help me through the week. She has a very inviting but calm and reassuring presence. The class has reignited my awareness of yoga’s benefits and I highly recommend it. —Aria

I have been attending zoom yoga classes weekly with Niela for the past two and a half months, and her class is usually the highlight of my week. Her practice is appropriate for all levels, and she guides you through a balanced sequence of postures with enough time to build energy in each pose. I like that she incorporates core work in creative ways, and I always feel open and energized after yoga with Niela – Rachel

My Story

I wanted to share my story to why I began studying yoga. I studied yoga on and off most of my adult life with poor discipline due to lifes many distractions. Not to say that career and family are distractions, but you catch my meaning. My soulmate and I opened a community center called BIOMA that offers martial arts, yoga and visual arts. This has been one of our life dreams and we love spending our time teaching, connecting and growing with others. I am a practitioner of Agnihotra which stems from Hinduism and yoga aligns nicely with my practice. In fact, yoga aligns nicely with all spiritual practices. I find the older I get the more of a student I realize I am. The less and less I actually know. Its fascinating! Yoga helps facilitate that union of all the energies and physics of the universe and I am grateful to be pathed to teach it to others.
