Saraswati’s Yoga Joint is…
a yoga studio in Fairfield County, Connecticut with a mission to take the mystery out of yoga. We offer up an experience that is both enlightening and physically empowering.
At SYJ we think yoga belongs to everybody and that yoga, very simply, will take you out of your head and into your body.
You will learn to cultivate peace and love within yourself while getting stronger and more flexible — and who doesn’t need a little more of that?
That’s what you can expect when you practice here: no guru idolizing sideshows. No ‘holier-than thou’ attitudes. Just a bunch of yogis sharing an irresistibly sweaty, body strengthening/lengthening, thought provoking practice that makes you feel great about yourself and your life.
You’ll find a diverse community at SYJ: triathletes, artists, teachers, firemen, bikers, soccer moms, surgeons, designers of churches, servers of beverages, bakers of cookies, writers of poetry, diggers of holes, we serve and we celebrate all of you.
SYJ is a place for beginners, advanced practitioners, and teachers. There are no prerequisites like touching your toes, let us teach you to find those babies — that’s what we’re good at.
Yoga at SYJ is inspired by whoever comes through the door. Let us take the mystery out of it and teach you how to build a practice that will inspire you to very simply embrace your body, your mind and your spirit.
Our signature vinyasa classes focus on super healthy alignment and incredibly smart sequencing meant to open, strengthen, and heal (should that be necessary) your body. It is this authentic and creative focus that makes SYJ extraordinary and unique and fun.
Inspired by Saraswati, the goddess of wisdom, art and culture, our teachers often play music, read poetry and sometimes go on the occasional artistic riff. That said, we are also silent and meditative when the spirit moves us.
We have a ton of respect for this great gift of yoga and we have taken years of study and practice to bring you what we think of as an inspiring, thoughtful, creative, and challenging form of movement.
SYJ teachers artfully weave classes with a sweet dose of centering, a creative sequence of poses (unless you are in a foundation class where the emphasis is on basic fundamentals) culminating in savasana (rest a.k.a nap time).
