“In this place of love, all things are possible”
− Baron Baptiste
The Roots of Half Moon Power Yoga
In the middle of our studio floor stands a tall and strong tree. Pinned to this tree are notes known as intentions, left by students and instructors who have found peace and strength during their yoga practice. Sharing these intentions helps our students and instructors define who they want to become in this world and how they will realize this desire.
OUR CORE VALUES
Baptiste Yoga™ was founded in the 1940′s by Walt Baptiste and remains accessible to anyone today who is looking for personal transformation. Much of the physical aspects of the Baptiste Yoga™ style are inspired by the Hatha Yoga teachings of Krishnamacharya and his students Iyengar and Desikachar, whom Baron Baptiste studied with personally from a young age.

Absolutely love this place! The instructors are fabulous, as is the atmosphere. You have to go check it out- there is a living tree in the studio that crackles and breathes with your flow!! Half Moon classes will give you a great workout and a positive mind!
Not only are the instructors excellent at what they do (the yoga), they enjoy it and have fun with it. HMPY has cultivated a family of sorts that invites everyone in. I have been to a lot of different studios, but this is by far my favorite. My practice has excelled, AND I feel at home here. #nomanleftout #communitylove
...Half Moon Power Yoga not only helped me to relax more and work towards being in better overall health but HMPY greatly help to give me a sense of community and belonging that I needed being in a new city…
