About Matthew Clark

Matthew is a professional drummer, yoga instructor, chef, edible gardener and nature enthusiast. He has toured all over the US and Europe with various bands and finds a similar meditative space in music as he finds in yoga.


Trained in India and in the US Matthew combines the two worlds in his classes, the spiritual east and the physical west. Come to his hatha yoga class for some good music, a steady, invigorating stretch, some core work and detoxifying twists, guided by the rhythm of your breath.

Matthew Clark instructs the following classes:

HATHA :: All Levels

A steady practice with focus on proper alignment and holding of poses to engage, building strength, stamina, flexibility and balance as well as improving concentration and breath control.
**Introducing twists, some backbends, approachable inversions and the usage props (blocks, straps), this class is suitable for, and potentially challenging for ALL LEVELS as it can be taken as easily or deeply as one's body demands on a given day.


YOGA :: Yoga & Meditation (c)

This gentle flow class is focused on the experience of being in your body and with your breath. Accessible to all levels, including beginners, this class is a combination of gentle & dynamic flow coupled with longer holds to help find alignment in our bodies, within ourselves, connect with clarity, humility, and love.
We begin end class with Mindfulness Meditation – a subtle but very special practice that is often overlooked.
