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

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.

Thanksgiving week: Wednesday, November 26, there will be no class in Harbor Springs, and not on Thanksgiving Thursday in Petoskey. There is class Monday, November 24, at 5:30 and all classes on Tuesday, November 25.

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.

Need a mat?

I have a brand new roll of yoga mats, treat yourself to having your own mat, you can even keep it at the studio.

A man will be imprisoned in a room with a door that's unlocked and opens inwards, as long as it does not occur to him to pull rather than push.
