Yoga Garden of Apex was founded by Dharma Richards in 2009, and expanded to a sister studio in Pittsboro, Yoga Garden PBO, where she was the co-founder and director of teacher training. Dharma then expanded her teachings nd became an owner of Yoga Warriors International, Yoga Garden's roots were in the Classical Hatha-Raja, Dharma Yoga, Kundalini and Vinyasa styles of teachings and classes, and has been a registered Yoga Alliance School for twelve years. In 2019, Dharma began talking with one of her long-time teachers to transition the studio into new hands as she was ready to return to her beloved home city in Asheville, NC, and in January of 2021 the studio's director became Heather Blanchard.
Yoga Garden was truly a friendly, nurturing, and encouraging boutique studio, school, and community surrounded by students who loved yoga. All were welcome with open arms into our intimate yoga sanctuary, affording practitioners of all levels a space to deepen their practice while enhancing their mind-body connection.
When the COVID pandemic hit in 2020, we were very grateful and fortunate to be one of the local studios who remained in service to their community. In 2021, as we reflected on the future, it became apparent with social distancing guidelines that we needed MORE space to continue growing and offering the classes, workshops and teacher trainings our students have come to love. We received an invitation to partner with another long-running and successful studio in Cary, Yoga-Mojo, in the fall of 2021, and soon announced a move to new, more expansive space just a few miles from our beloved Yoga Garden in the heart of Cary. Our NEW studio, Cary Yoga Collective, is powered by Yoga Garden & Yoga-Mojo. Read more to learn about our offerings.
Yoga Garden and Yoga-Mojo's unique, boutique studios served the Triangle for a combined 18 years, and came together to empower students both on and off the mat. We are so grateful to combine our unique yet similar offerings to all~ A true “collective” of teachers and practices that are rooted in serving our community ~ throughout the Triangle and beyond. Our vision is to provide Yoga for All — and Cary Yoga Collective’s Grand Opening was in February, 2022.
