Sumits Yoga was created by Sumit Banerjee based on his own years of experience practicing and teaching various yoga styles including Bikram and Vinyasa. His sequence and style of teaching reinforces his primary objectives as a teacher: helping others to realize the powerful wellness benefits of yoga including a stronger, toned and more flexible body and an improved state of mind encouraging relaxation, self-acceptance and awareness.
Sumit understands the healing aspect of heat. “It’s simple”, he says, “In a yoga class, you practice poses that require stretching and compression of the joints, muscles, ligaments and other supporting structures of the body. Your body naturally protects itself from physical exertion by generating heat from the inside muscles outwards. We start with the heat up front…providing that extra protection from the very first poses. Another added benefit is that your body burns fat more effectively. It’s not uncommon for our students practicing regularly to lose inches of shape in a relatively short time”.
Sumit encourages all students – newcomers and experienced students alike – to begin and maintain a consistent practice regardless of the style preferred. “You’ll benefit from class by your effort regardless of how far or deep you get. As long as you are feeling it and you are breathing calmly, you’re practicing correctly.

Ashtanga Modified Primary Series With Christa - Wednesdays at 7am
This class is a Modified Primary Series (MPS) of the Ashtanga system, as taught in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. The Primary Series is a set sequence of postures designed to bring strength, flexibility, and endurance to the body. Practicing the sequence consistently purifies the body through breath, movement, and concentration to invoke a stillness of the mind. Benefits derived from Ashtanga Vinyasa include increased body-breath awareness, a building of strength and stamina as well as flexibility and balance. This class will allow development of personal practice that can be taken outside the yoga studio into daily life. An understanding of the Ashtanga and Ashtanga Vinyasa lifestyle can be applied to all types of yoga.
This class is not heated and is donation based only. All proceeds will benefit the Missouri River Relief river clean up events.
PLEASE BRING CASH OR CHECK - NO CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR THIS WEEKLY DONATION CLASS.
As long as you're breathing calmly, you're practicing correctly.
At Sumits we are one big family - staff, teachers and students. We are so proud of all our students and their growth through their individual yoga journeys. We spotlight one student each month and share their journey in Student Spotlights.
Congrats to our current student of the month!
Current Student of the Month: Angela
"I took my first class at Sumits about 3 years ago with some friends. Having always been interested in different ways to work out and stay in shape, the rewarding, sweaty workout is what initially got me hooked. I loved the heated aspect and how it allowed me to go deeper into each pose."
"I didn't realize it in the beginning, but this practice would change my life."
