The word yoga derives from the work “yuj” which means union. Namaste Newport is the result of a community unifying to keep the yoga vibe in town. In late 2014, the community decided that yoga was an important part of their daily life and with the local yoga studio closing it’s doors, they still needed a place to call om. Late night meetings and many email conversations later, Natalie of the Newport Ballroom graciously allowed us to open our doors in Nov of 2014, and by Jan 2015, Namaste Newport was created. Along with our amazing teachers, special guests, and beautiful students, we offer almost daily classes, private sessions (available upon request), workshops, community outreach programs, a presence at the local farmers market, and so much more! Namaste means the light, divine, and energy in me, sees and honors the light, the divine, and the energy in you. We are so grateful for everyone energy and support as we continue to share our love for everything yoga in our beautiful community. Namaste.
