New Students


Our mission at The Yoga Effect of downtown Grayslake is to be EFFECTIVE in providing wellness for the body and mind in a safe and inspiring manner. We will offer students of all ages a comfortable place where they can find the resources they need to accomplish their wellness goals. A community setting where they can de-stress, regroup and contemplate the important choices we must make everyday, while escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We believe that a life led more skillfully will have enormous positive EFFECTS on the individual and the community as a whole. We promise to continue our education as students of yoga and to always be improving our own practice and teaching methods.

Please call 847-752-8699 or email Dina Ellington at with any questions you may have.
