Welcome to sohum Yoga... a warm welcome to all... and an invite to join us!
About Our Studio
Sohum YOGA center, located in the Garberville / Redway community of Southern Humboldt County, California, offers classes in many styles and levels of yoga including Ashtanga, Iyengar, Kundalini, Sivananda, and Svaroopa.
Sohum Yoga was created in 2002 by Gayna Uransky and Toni Jones, and has enjoyed a loyal following of clientele and teacher contributors for many years.
Gayna’s study of yoga began in 1970 with a Hatha yoga class in Maryland. She then moved to San Francisco where she studied Iyengar yoga with
Judith Lasater, Mary Dunn, and Ramanand Patel for many years, traveling several times to Pune, India to study directly with B.K.S. Iyengar. She
is a Certified Iyengar teacher. She has also studied Ashtanga yoga with
K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India.
For 17 years she taught daily yoga
classes at Heartwood Institute in Northern California. She also taught a
200-hour Yoga Alliance-certified Yoga Teacher Training at Heartwood
Institute for many years. In 2002 she and a friend opened "sohum YOGA" center in
Garberville, California. She also teaches an annual week-long Yoga
Intensive in Zihuatanejo, Mexico, and is perhaps the very first yoga
teacher from the US to teach a yoga Intensive in Mexico. She started
teaching there in 1986. Gayna teaches several classes each week at the sohum YOGA center.
