About Us

What’s in a Name?

A riverstone is a rock that has been transformed by the water’s steady flow to a polished stone, allowing its beauty to emerge naturally; it symbolizes the power and energy of change.

At Riverstone Yoga we strive to awaken and nurture your individual energy, support your changes, and encourage your transformations, naturally.
