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)

3/17 Update: Supporting Small Businesses

Daily Posts regarding our zoom room on line classes will be posted daily on our FB page.

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.



Donation-based while we iron out kinks and streamline how this will work.  You can donate before or wait until after class to donate, or not at all.

Donate $5, $10, $15, $0, or set your own price

Use the following link:
https://zoom.us/j/8472518176

You’ll be able to join the class through Zoom. It can be accessed from your Phone or Laptop.

The Virtual Room will “open” a 1/2 hr before a class’ start time. Before those times, the link simply will not work.
Once class “starts” please mute your mic.

Find a place at home to practice

Find what you can for props:
Cushions/pillows work great for bolsters
Solid Books or cans can be nice Blocks

This is a work in process, so bear with us


What’s Next… 

Studio Closure Update
All of us here at Niyama are hoping that the rest of the community is doing well and staying healthy.  This is a stressful and unusual time for all of us.  

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.

COVID-19/Corona Update II (3:30pm: March 16th)

Corona/Covid-19 Update (3:30pm March 16th)
 
Niyama has always been a place for compassionate transformation. It’s always been a place of community for all of us, especially at trying times.
 
It’s never easy doing the hard things.
 
After more thought and discussion, and with a deep sense of regret at not being able to provide a physical space for community, we’ve decided that it’s best for Niyama to temporarily close as this health sitation continues to unfold.
 
Even though we all achknowledge and appreciate the sense of community at the studio itself, at this time it’s best for the health of the community to close our doors for a short time.
 
We are actively looking into ways to stream classes or provide recorded classes.
 
Feel free to reach out to teachers to check in and see how we’re all doing. We’ll get through this, and we’ll all be on our mats in the studio soon.
 
The community we have is more than just the physical space and the benefit of technology today is that in someways it’s easier to maintain that community.

Friday and Saturday Karma/Donation Classes

2019’s Donations went to to The Warming House Youth Center and Haven Youth and Family Services

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

Friday 6:30pm Niyama Hot Yoga™ with Brad

Saturday 12:45pm Yin with Mac

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 RocksCurt’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.
