These are our current yoga offerings at OCHO through April and hopefully beyond. What other yoga classes would you like to attend at OCHO? We’d like to know. Kids yoga? More gentle classes, more strength- building, more mornings, or evenings?
We’d like to offer classes that people want and need. To add to or refine our class schedule, we need your feedback. We’re taking suggestions and input.

About our Yoga Teachers and Classes
Alice Zorthian started taking yoga 22 years ago to alleviate pregnancy symptoms, and before she knew it, she was hooked! She has taught elementary school for years and brings her yoga practice into the classroom. She has practiced many different styles of yoga including power, anusara, and hatha. She received her 200-hour teacher certification in 2014 from Aura Fitness with Aura Garver and Ashleigh Beyer. She currently teaches the Children's Yoga class at Shree Yoga in Taos and also teaches summertime sessions of "Yoga in the Park" at Kit Carson Park in Taos. She likes to bring breath work, chakra work, and a sense of humor into her yoga classroom.
Restorative, all levels - Monday Evening, 4:30 - 6:00 pm
This 90-minute restorative practice consists of gentle poses that will strengthen the body. We use props to help support the postures. This deep, restorative work will help improve the nervous system and reduce the effects of stress on the body. We hold these gentle poses for several minutes. Feel the goodness.
Meghan Mason says, “I am committed to meeting you where you are in life and your yoga practice. Through breath and movement we reach out to bigger possibilities inside ourselves. The poses that inspire me most are warrior poses.” She completed a 300-hour teacher training in Orlando, Florida at Warrior One, and is also a Certified Personal Trainer, is CPR certified, completed Connection Coalition Trauma Informed Outreach Training, and phase one of Y12SR training (Sober Yoga, Relapse Prevention).
Gentle Basic Yoga, beginning/all levels - Thursday Morning, 9 - 10:30 am
This is a great class for those just beginning yoga, or coming back after a long hiatus. This class is also perfect for those who may have some limited mobility. We will use lots of props and take our time. All the benefits, at a gentle pace
Half Flow / Half Yin, all levels - Thursday Evening, 5 - 6:30 pm
This 90-minute practice will warm you up to an energizing flow, and guide you to find balance and strength. We close with a grounding practice to restore and cool. Follow the breath.
Flow, all levels - Saturday morning, 10 - 11:30 am
A gentle start, this 90-minute practice explores strength building and alignment, and keeps breath and body tuned to each other. Set the tone.
Gaea McGahee began practicing yoga 20 years ago in southern NM, her original home. She migrated to northern NM in 2011 and has a deep love for this place and community. She completed a 200-hour teacher training at Aura Fitness in Taos in May 2016. She likes this way of thinking about yoga, offered by Barron Baptiste, as the unending process of refinement.
Flow and Restore, all levels - Tuesday Morning, 9 - 10:30 am
This 90-minute class explores sequences that facilitate greater mobility, ease tension, and increase awareness of breath, while mindfully engaging in foundational yoga poses. Each person is guided to work within their range of motion and body’s abilities. Gently energize and restore.
