The best time to plant a tree was 10 years ago. The second best time is now.

What a humbling feeling. It's hard to believe that 9 years ago there was one student in the very first class at our original location on Moisic street. 6 years later with savings, help from all of you in this wonderful community and our families - Lara and I married and relocated Steamtown yoga into the heart of Scranton.  

Lara's first student Martha Wells still maintaines her 3 time a week practice as do many of the original members who followed. Since then the SHY community has grown into a thriving yoga culture now based in the heart of this beautiful city. SHY now has a wonderful staff and offers 28 classes a week plus workshops, advanced programs and international yoga retreats.

We stay true to our hot yoga lineage rooted from Bishnu Gosh combined with Taoist forms and philosophies steeped in the Eastern Healing Arts.


It can't go without mention to also thank all of the local community and business leaders who work hard for this renaissance and revitalization of Scranton. We couldn't ask for better neighbors. thank you all for your continued support and loyalty to the SHY practice and this beautiful historic city. 

It is an honor to be among you.  

Love and blessings to all of you past, present and future yogis! 



Lara & Yanni
