Welcome and Welcome Back to Yoga!

Mary Reilly

New yoga sessions in Petoskey offer a rolling admission. Start when you can and create your own class punch card. All asanas are taught in each class and all classes taught by Mary Reilly.

Yoga beginners can start anytime at the North Woods Studio in Petoskey. See our current schedule for classes that are appropriate for beginners. There are lots of them! All other classes need permission of instructor unless you are or have been a student of Iyengar yoga, as they assume some experience.

Call Mary at (231) 526-5041 if you have questions about our Petoskey and Harbor Springs classes. Feel free to come and experience a yoga class. Drop ins are allowed at the above times for a single class fee. (New students receive a complimentary class with purchase of their first class punch card).

Welcome New Students

Gift Certficates for Classes at North Woods Yoga can be arranged with Mary, for any amount, good for a year. Call Mary at 231-526-5041 or e-mail her at

Announcements & Events

If you sign up above, you will receive an email that you need to respond to in order to be added.

Morning classes: if public school is cancelled we are cancelled in either Harbor or Petoskey (depending on the location of the class.) Evening classes, call the 526-9093 number and it will be on the recording after 2 pm if it is cancelled.

Make up class

Since we had a snow day this year, I am going to offer a Tuesday makeup class on Tuesday, December 30th at 9 am and 10:45. You can use any of your left over classes on your class cards or pay for a single class if you have used them all up.

New Session

Our new winter session will begin January 5th. This first week is a trial week to new students and so you may see the 12th as a start date as well, but it is a 16 week session taking us through April starting on the 5th of January. Late starts are fine. All the current classes will be offered.

Light on Life Book Club

We will meet next Tuesday, December 9th, at 12 with Chapter 6 on Bliss, since we didn't have enough of us to meet last time with the weather and holiday.

Special Topic Classes

Next Friday, December 12th (12/12 ! ) from 9-11 I will give the last Friday class of 2014, Open Heart Yoga from 9-11. Asanas to bring in the light by opening the chest, and a swift adjustable practice to stoke the fires within. Adjustable in that if you don't like doing asanas in a vinyasa or connected sequence, then I will show you how to do it at your own speed or to stop at the right places.

All are welcome, and the fee is either two classes from your class card, or $25.

New Years Class

January 1st at 9 am
Breakfast included $18. We will send a donation to Shri Shakti, a women's organization in northern India which teaches quilting to the women while educating their children. Our tradition of celebrating the new year with yoga will continue, with an all-levels class (but not the first yoga class you've ever taken) please sign up by email at or at the studio. If you want to come last minute its probably fine, but I want a general head count for breakfast.

New Mats

If you would like to order a new thick mat, I am putting an order together. It would be like the orange one at the studio, a Manduka lite mat, an it comes in many colors. The price will be approximately $65. You may leave it or any other personal mat at the studio if you like, I am making a space below the table where the studio mats are kept. I suggest putting your mat in a bag to keep it separate.
