Grand Canyon Shanti Yoga
YOGA FOR EVERYONE
Yoga unites the mind, body, and soul in a way that eases tension, reduces inflammation, and promotes health and well being. Regular practice will help you reach, improve and perfect poses, correct posture and positioning, and improve your breathing and outlook on life. Owners and sisters, Angelé Mead and Gina Carpenter started this studio with the idea that yoga should be accessible to all body types, ages and levels of fitness. Most of all, they wanted to make yoga available to the people of their beloved hometown. Having lived in Williams their whole lives, it was important for them to create something that gives back to the community. For that reason, classes are kept affordable, and many offerings, such as the meditation classes, are free. At Grand Canyon Shanti Yoga, we want you to be comfortable in our classes. Our students are of all ages and all abilities. We pride ourselves on our ability to help everyone learn and grow in their yoga practice. We are proud to be able to offer yoga in Williams that is affordable, and inclusive practices that everyone can do!

Calm Your Mind
Yoga not only helps improve your body, but also helps with mindfulness and meditation. It is important to take a break from daily life in order to focus on yourself and get clarity.
Focusing on your breath during practice is key to staying in tune with your mind and body.
Enhance Your Wellness
Yoga is a great way to improve your endurance in other physical activities. After a run, or heavy workout, yoga will help your body relax while stretching, strengthening, and lengthening the muscles you were just working on.
