Niyama Yoga has been located in Wilmette for over 15 years: providing room temperature vinyasa, yin & restorative as well as Niyama Hot yoga classes, not just to Wilmette, but also Evanston, Skokie, Winnetka and the rest of the north shore. We’ve been a space where individuals can find the time for moving with their breath, at their pace, while also becoming part of a community.
Due to the Health Concerns surrounding Corona/Covid-19, Niyama will be closed until the end of March. We are now offering ONLINE CLASSES (Please see below)
Together, we’ll get through this. Together, it will be ok.
We’re just finding new ways to be together in all this…
ONLINE Yoga Classes will be posted on our FB page every day. Please connect with us there.
In case of emergency you are always welcome to click to the zoom link below and join in if a class is taking place.

Studio Closure Update
As we try to get online classes (either streamed or recorded) set up, the reality of being a small business-albeit one that has been here for 15+ years, and the unknown and unprecedented nature of this situation does create difficulties for us.
There will most likely be bumps/hiccups as we evolve in response to all of this, so please bear with us. Keep an eye on our website or facebook, as we try setting up something online in terms of classes.
While our doors continue to be temporarily closed, we still have expenses that we need to account for, along with the uncertainty of how long this sitution will continue.
If you would like to continue to support us as we go about transitioning to some sort of online/streaming format, here are two options:
Option 1: Purchase a discounted 10-class pack while the studio is closed. (CLICK HERE)
We’ll be temporarily discounting the regular 10-class pack and allow it to be purchased online. We can figure out how to use those classes for online classes, or they can be redeemed when we re-open.
Option 2: Small Business Community Support Pack (Click Here – Select the amount desired or pick custom amount).
It’s an opportunity to offer us much needed support, even if the amount is small, at a time where there is great uncertainty in terms of how long this may go on.
Lastly, it’s not just our studio that will be struggling but other small, local businesses. So, if there are others you care about, take the time to find ways to support them in these coming days/weeks.
Ways to support your local/small businesses:
- A friendly note, or leaving them a glowing review on Yelp or Facebook or Google.
- Buying an online gift card.
- Giving them a shoutout on Facebook, or referring them to a friend.
There are lots of ways to support your local businesses without leaving your house for the time being, and they’ll be needing it.

Friday and Saturday Karma/Donation Classes
2018’s Donations went to showing Niyama some Love and having renovations done at the studio.
2017’s Donations for the Friday class went to Syd Rocks/Giving Rocks
Besides using our Thanksgiving classes to benefit The Greater Chicago Food Depository, and helping global refugee families and RefugeeOne with the Giving Tree in December it also means letting the proceeds of our Karma Classes go to a charity or charities for the year. In years past we have helped Syd Rocks, Curt’s Café, Erika’s Lighthouse, Designs 4 Dignity, Haven Youth Services, Warming House, and others through the donation classes.
The deciding factors have always been to find local non-profits that are small-scale where we know that the money that Niyama donates, has the chance to do the most good possible.
Having been a high school teacher for 5 years, there was a part of me that wanted this year to find local non-profits that are in some way providing services to our youth that might at times be over-looked in public education.
