The Home of Ashtanga Yoga Therapy

Try a class with Melissa & Gary on

Melissa Cooper Margolin and Gary Margolin have been on a combined yogic journey of over 60 years.  Along the way they practiced and taught Ashtanga yoga from New York City to Santa Monica, California, where they established Home-Simply Yoga as the first “green” yoga and alternative health facility in the state.  Melissa’s work as an interior designer with Interiors in Harmony and Gary’s schedule as a strategic business consultant has brought them back to Greenwich, Connecticut where they will teach private and semi private classes in both Connecticut and New York using the Ashtanga yoga system as developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois as well as his teacher Sri T. Krishnamacharya.  Teaching privately allows them to fully honor the intended use of the primary series of Ashtanga yoga called Yoga Chikitsa, which means yoga therapy, by adapting the practice to the needs of each individual student they teach.  They have successfully used the system they call Ashtanga Yoga Therapy side by side with traditional Ashtanga yoga to help alleviate back pain, correct kyphotic conditions, rehabilitate injuries, and correct physical challenges such as tight hips and backs.

In addition, to insure that the knowledge and experience they have cultivated is shared, they will periodically continue to offer in depth intensive training sessions on both a self paced and group basis for those wishing to teach or just deepen their own practice.  For further information email:
