About Us

We opened New Bern Yoga to provide a calm and centered space for all levels of practice.  We are tucked into Village Square located at the intersection of Trent Road and Glenburnie Road. We welcome everyone, from those just starting out to advanced practitioners.  

"Do your practice and all is coming." 

"Yoga can be practiced by anyone, whether young, old, healthy or sick.  Even so, the way a young person is taught will differ in manner from the way in which an older or sick person may be taught.  Each student must be considered as an individual and taught at a pace suitable for their situation in life.

The dharma, or duty of the student is to practice diligently and to strive to understand the teaching of the guru.  The perfection of knowledge -and of yoga-lies beyond simply mastering the practice.  Knowledge grows from the mutual love and respect between student and teacher.  A relationship that can only cultivated over time"

~Shri K Pattabhi Jois
