Buddha Yoga Studio in Ruidoso is an ideal sanctuary for your return to small group yoga practice. A not-for-profit Sangha - or spiritual community - our cooperative of teachers lead yogic education, meditation, spiritual guidance and prana/asana practice. Our ethics are based upon YOGA SUTRAS See the YOGA SCHEDULE.
HOW DO WE SUPPORT CORONAVIRUS RESTRICTIONS?
We adhere to local/state coronavirus restrictions for "places of worship" with stringent new protocols that limit occupancy to 25% of maximum occupancy (as defined by the latest Governor's health directive for coronavirus restrictions).

Our new space includes: 6 ft distancing markers for mats/seating, ventilation (not recirculated A/C), a disinfecting plan, max occupancy and posted safe practice reminders.
