Yoga at Red Barn Wellness Farm
Yoga is an ancient practice of mindful movement, breath, creativity & meditation, that has become increasingly popular in today's busy society. For many people, yoga provides a retreat from the external influences of their day to day lives; an opportunity to reconnect with the true nature of one's authentic self within the space of mindful community. The intention of all of our classes, retreats and trainings here at Red Barn Wellness Farm is to offer a studio practice that continues off the mat and into your world. We believe that Yoga is an ageless lifestyle that promotes holistic wellness of mind, body & spirit that has the great potential to carry into your daily decision making, relationships, communities, workplaces and, ultimately, the well-being of our Planet. If you are interested in learning more about our offerings, please visit our Calendar of Events. All of our classes & retreats require pre-registration. We look forward to welcoming you to this transformational practice that can help you learn, grow, become more empowered and relaxed on & off the mat!

Emma Aadhya, RYT 200, Horse Wisdom Yoga® Certified Teacher
This program is more than a Yoga Teacher Training certification; it is a beautiful opportunity to deepen awareness and mindfulness, and that is such a gift. I could not have conjured up a more perfect fit for myself in regards to the program and Fotini herself. I am so grateful to have had her guide me through my first Teacher Training certification.
Molly Medvick, RYT 200, Musician
Wonderful facility run by amazing and knowledgeable staff. I took my Yoga Teacher Training here and it was life changing. A great balance of nature, yoga, animals, creativity and learning. I highly recommend any program the Red Barn offers!
Jessica Wiles, RYT 200, Wellness Practitioner
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for gently guiding and giving me the opportunity to finally meet myself. Because of your guidance I've created such a harmonious and safe space within myself. Fotini, thank you for showing up just as you are and showing each of us how to build our own bridge to the other side.
Lynda Watson, Publisher- Equine Leadership Magazine
Soft, sacred and supportive. Those are the best words to describe Fotini and her yoga classes as well as her manner of teaching them. It is a space I FEEL genuine love in energetic terms. I always leave with a connection to source through gentle movements, non-judgemental guidance, and authentic caring. and of course the horses always send their energy to make the sessions extra special.
Jo-Anne Beggs, RYT 200, R.S.W, Trauma Therapist
Thank you Fotini for this opportunity. YTT has already created shifts in me, in relationships and in my work with trauma clients. I'm excited to see this path unfold and what I will create and share. 'Yoga is Devotion' moves me to the mat. There I find myself in my Truth, there I remember who I am. Thank you for reminding me.
