Our awesome sponsor, Desert Lotus Yoga Abq, is hosting a yoga/stretch session prior to the Sugar Skull Fun Run. If you're interested, be sure to arrive a bit early so that you can stretch prior to the 9a.m. start time!

And don't forget - The Sugar Skull Fun Run is also going to feature a Mu**to Market, which is full of vendors, food trucks, and more!

Thanks so much to our sponsor for offering this special opportunity. We can't to see you there!

This 1.5-hour offering is free for monthly auto-pay members, $25 for non-members.


An evening 💫 class that aligns around the energy of the moon! We will use the qualities of the moon 🌙 cycles as an anchor for our practice. This class is suitable for all levels with modifications applied.


Another new class! You asked and we are happy to offer a meditation centered class. On Thursday evenings as we prepare to wrap up the work week, this class will start with gentle, seated movements to purify and prepare the body for guided meditation.

Sun Salutations
In Honor of International Day of Yoga
& Summer Solstice

Join us for a fun exploration of Surya Namaskar. Moving through several variations of sun salutations we may just find our way to 108! We will explore the sacredness of the number 108 across many cultures and times. This will be fun and accessible for everyone, whether you're down with chaturanga or not!

Saturday, June 17th @ 1pm


Join us in welcoming summer! Douglas will be with us again on June 17th for a special summer solstice sound healing session. Registration in Linktree in our bio.


The beauty of Yoga is that it will enhance any other faith you practice. Let it. 




Quantum mechanics meets mysticism and in this book the authors visit everything in between! While some have discounted these ideas as pseudoscience, it is interesting to think about how little we actually know (concretely) about our origin and purpose in this universe.


We are excited to once again offer this Mother’s Day class to support the Barrett Foundation!
Every year thousands of families are impacted by homelessness and every year many are aided with the support of various organizations. This year, to celebrate the gift of motherhood, join in this donation-based yoga class with 100% proceeds to benefit Barrett House Foundation. In 2020 almost 600 families were helped by Barrett Foundation. Let's help them help even more!


What more is there to say?!


The Gheranda Samhita says postures (asanas) are as many in number as there are numbers of species of living creatures in this universe. Among them 84 are the best and of those, 32 have been found useful for humankind. That's saying something!

# hathayogapradipika



Learning to say thank you for what we already have rather than praying for what we don't is one of the sweet lessons of life.



This is a wonderfully concise look into the practice of mindfulness. From points on sitting to possible pitfalls along the path, this book has it all. Highly recommend for anyone who is interested in mindfulness, whether you're unsure about how to begin or even if you are experienced in the practice. 


Take a deeper look at triangle pose through the exploration of its history, its somatic and energetic aspects, its variations, and its expression within our own individual bodies. Maximize the benefits of this deceptively challenging asana by approaching it with greater intention, understanding, and safety.


Isn't it wonderful that all of the answers can be discovered within? 



We see you and are here to help you feel exactly this way! 


This is a good reminder to practice receiving with non-attachment, giving with grace, and being open to the constant possibility of change. 



Today is officially the first day of Spring! Join us for this special event on Saturday, March 25th as we welcome the awakening of nature!

Join Lotus Sound Bath for a very special Spring Equinox Sound Bath at Desert Lotus Yoga located at 11200 Montgomery Blvd NE, Ste. 7, Albuquerque NM. The session starts at 6:30 PM.

This is a one hour therapeutic sound bath with Douglas. These spots will fill up fast so book yours today using this link.


This classic book reminds us of ways we sabotage ourselves. There are moments when it feels a little selfish and even harsh to imagine putting into place some of the practices for healing our erroneous zones, but if looked at from a softer perspective the message is really just to move closer toward our authentic selves untangling the conditioning we have experienced in our lives.


It’s finally here! Tomorrow is the beginning of a beautiful journey. An energetic journey, a journey home.

Start time: 2pm
What to bring: A journal, any item(s) that give you a sense of safety and grounding, a childhood picture if you have one, an open mind and questions!
See you tomorrow!!


Shawna describes her experience with yoga as a vehicle for peace. A practitioner for many years, she completed her teacher training in Nashville with Steadfast & True Yoga and enjoys few things more than sharing yoga with others. She has a passion for the softer side of yoga embracing the calming of the mind and body, thoughtfully guiding practices that are approachable by all ages and abilities. A registered nurse and mother to five adult children, Shawna loves spending empty nest time with her husband and fun loving pup, traveling, and eating and drinking delicious things!


Time and again we hear about how well-loved Victoria’s classes are! From the way she builds her instruction toward a peak pose to how she seems to know what each person in the room needs, people simply love practicing with her!


It is with a quiet but certain confidence that Sarena is able to seemingly know exactly what to offer in each class. With many years of experience, you can be assured that you will leave Sarena’s class feeling complete!


Spend 5 minutes with Kevin and you will feel calm and relaxed! With degrees in athletic training and sports medicine, his knowledge and understanding of the body aligns perfectly with our desire to hold space for you with the foundation of safety. Practice with Kevin on Mondays at 4:30, a perfect way to end the Monday workday and ease into a relaxing evening!


You are limitless!


This doesn't mean we shouldn't hurt when we are treated poorly, but that we can let go of the responsibility we may feel for someone else's feelings. Letting go allows us to act from a place of self-compassion, a karmic win! 



Try a class with Victoria mornings or afternoons!
