About Us


The Dhira Yoga Center and Shop offers playful and challenging, heart centered yoga classes for all levels of practitioners. Our Shop offers yoga inspired art on its apparel, gifts and accessories. Michael has practiced yoga in the Krishnamacharya lineage for 30 years. The curated Dhira Yoga Shop aims to express the bliss and beauty of our practice.

     Our philosophy, classes, apparel, accessories and gifts are meant to inspire as well as bring a smile. Have a look around and you will find, replete with levity, asanas, mudras, pranayama, devas and all things yoga designed to inspire and amuse. Listen closely while you look around the Shop and you will hear the echo of the words of the Spiritual Master and Yogi, Swami Satchidananda,  “Above all else, yoga is fun!” Your yoga apparel should be fun too! Check out our offerings.

     Our name, “Dhira”, is the name given to the playful and mischievous Hanuman, and the Supreme destroyer of evil in India’s Great Ancient Epic, The Ramayana. Hanuman, or Dhira, is the God of Strength, Courage and Devotion. Hanuman can be found, shifting his form, around every corner of the Dhira Yoga Shop, in our yoga studio, and also, most playfully, in our classes.

     We hope you will discover, and enjoy, the play, the beauty, the lightness and a bit of the mischief, found in our offerings!

Namaste, Michael
