A bit about North End Yoga

We focus on Yoga Therapy. Both Terrilee and Christina are certified in Yoga Therapy and Ashtanga Yoga by Manju Jois and are both Rapid Neurofascial Reset Specialists.

Yoga is more than a stretching class and we will help you learn the therapeutic benefits of the practice. Each pose (asana) has a physical benefit that is more that just stretching your muscles. Yoga has been proven to be effective for many ailments including Back Pain, Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s Disease, Sleep Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Heart Disease, Inflammation and other ailments. Our therapists will help you get out of pain and can help you with many other issues that can affect your daily life.

What is RAPID NeuroFascial Reset?

RAPID NeuroFascial Reset (often shortened to RNFR) is focused on the central nervous system. Using soft tissue movements, it helps to relieve restrictions in the muscles, fascia, nerves, and ligaments.

It can play a significant role in releasing tension, relieving pain, and restoring the function of the body’s tissues. Rather than simply treating the symptoms underlying these issues, it aims to detect and correct the neurological source of them. RAPID NeuroFascial Reset, offers relief from many physical conditions that affect the soft tissues. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Tendonitis
  • Sciatica
  • Bursitis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Whiplash
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Shin Splints
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Golfer’s Elbow
  • Arthritis
  • Bunions

Clients may also want to treat the underlying sources of more general conditions, such as headaches and migraines, back pain, shoulder pain, or knee pain. RNFR can also be a good treatment option if clients have scar tissue from surgeries, c-sections, or other procedures, or if they have past or recent injuries. Even long-term conditions and scarring can be treated using RNFR.

Just want Yoga Classes? We do that too!! 

We offer daily yoga classes and workshops too. We specialize in Ashtanga Yoga.  The name Ashtanga Yoga means “8 limbs” in Sanskrit and is based on traditional yoga principles. Ashtanga Yoga is taught in two complementary formats, Mysore style or Led classes and we offer both and we have Beginner Yoga Classes too! (We LOVE beginner yoga). Christina and Terrilee both come to the mat with the experience that they have learned through a life-long yoga study. We love helping people feel less pain in their bodies.

Upcoming Workshops

Sanksrit Level One Workshop with Erik Marrero – April 1-2

We are proud to host our friend Erik Marrero for an introduction to the divine language of yoga. The first step in learning Sanskrit is to develop an intimacy with its sounds. Erik will present us with the yogic style of learning that supports a natural and effortless focus. He will teach us about the unique way these words vibrate the palate, we will become familiar with how the words develop and feel their force through our breath as we learn to speak.

This 14-hour seminar is an educational adventure that will give you a permanent connection to the beauty and energy of Sanskrit. Start your journey April 1 & 2 from 10 am – 5 pm. Breaks included. Cafe with light vegetarian options on sight.

Holding this knowledge makes it possible to grasp the subtleties of yoga, whose body of teachings was written in Sanskrit. Since ancient times the practice of yoga has included the study and chanting of mantras in this beautiful language to induce calm and clarity in meditation.
Over the course of the weekend you will learn how to approach Sanskrit in a way that is both enjoyable and inspiring. By the end of the weekend, students will…
– know the Yoga Model of learning
‐ know the five mouth positions used to speak the language
‐ know the alphabet in Devanagari
– be able to read simple words in the Devanagari script

Yoga Alliance registered teachers completing this workshop will receive continuing education certificates. Teachers that are not registered with Yoga Alliance and non-teachers will receive certificates of completion.

$350 taxes included.

Erik Marrero (ERYT-500, YACEP) started practicing yoga in 2007. The following year, as part of Yoga Teacher Training, he took a Sanskrit immersion weekend from a teacher at the American Sanskrit Institute (ASI). He was amazed that by the end of the second day, he was able to read Sanskrit words. The ASI learning model made that possible. In July 2011, with this same teacher, Erik joined Trishula Yoga’s weekly Sanskrit study group focusing on chanting and studying the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, and other texts, as well as chanting the Sanskrit alphabet and Maheshvara Sutras. In July 2014, Erik completed the ASI Sanskrit Level 1 Teacher Training. He has been teaching Introduction to Sanskrit since then in yoga studios as a special event and also as a required module in yoga teacher training. Students have included yoga teachers, students, and practitioners, as well as Kirtan chanters, Ayurvedic, and Jyotisha (Indian astrology) students and practitioners.

Erik studies and teaches Yin, Vinyasa, & Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. He is registered with Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT 500 and a YACEP and is authorized to teach Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.

Complete your weekend of yoga with Mysore classes each morning. From 8 am – 9:30 am Erik will lead us in our practice. He is also a long time student of our teacher Manju Jois. Terrilee and Christina have both benefited from sharing a practice space with him and will be on our mats. If you are attending the workshop, the fee for each day is $15 or $20 for anyone not attending the workshop

North End Yoga

At North End Yoga we offer traditional Ashtanga led and Mysore classes in the tradition of Manju P Jois. Our approach to yoga is based in the yoga as therapy practice as taught by Manju Jois. Our mandate is to share the traditional teachings and offer instruction in the Ashtanga Yoga system as it was meant to be too taught; a series of breath guided asana developed to improve health and heal the student.

Traditional Led Class

Sundays once a month at 10 am join Terrilee for a traditional led Ashtanga class.
Led classes allow students to focus on the breath as they follow the asanas and vinyasa as called out by the teacher. This approach to the practice involves synchronizing breath with progressive and continuous postures, which produces internal heat while detoxifying the body.
This class is suited to all levels of practitioner.

Half Led Primary

Join Terrilee Wednesday evenings for a mixed practice.
In this class we begin each practice with a led class to Navasana then each student progresses with his or her individual Mysore style practice.
The led portion of the practice brings awareness to the breath and this increases the energy and heat in the student. The Mysore style portion allows the student to bring this enhanced energy level into the more self focused areas of their personal practice.

As always students of all levels are welcome to attend.

Sign up


Mondays and Wednesdays at 8 am.
Join us for a traditional Mysore style Ashtanga Practice. This class is perfect for all levels.
Traditional Mysore classes allow each student to progress at his or her own rate, perfecting their asana practice with the guidance of a teacher on hand for adjustments and enhanced learning.
