Welcome to: 
Organic Yoga Company,  
Studio & School, 
Sioux Fall, South Dakota!

   We welcome all to drop-in for a class to experience what makes OYC unique. What you will discover is this: while OYC teachers always offer a good workout, the way we teach yoga gives much more. All of our classes teach biomechanics (how the body functions) and basic anatomy along side the yoga practice. We have found that this helps our students feel & understand their body more which, in turn, enables them to progress in their practice! Additionally, OYC classes teach the eight limbs of traditional ashtanga yoga (not just the physical poses), which include the spiritual practices of concentration & meditation. With a focus on the whole person, the skilled & knowledgeable teachers at OYC will help develop each practitioner of yoga in a way that will be deep, endlessly interesting, natural, sustainable, and unique to each individual!

Nancy Hong, E-RYT 500 Owner 



OYC recently finished our fourth consecutive teacher training this May (2015).  Having successfully completed their training, the students saw in themselves--and each other--how much they learned, experienced and were transformed.  This included the physical part of yoga but it also included the mind and the spirit!  

Yoga is a path to your Self, your deepest Self, and it feels like coming home!  Consider taking this journey with us in our next teacher training.


What Do You Want? Try a Pose-Focused or a Functioning-Focused Private Session with Nancy Hong E-RYT 500!

When someone books a private yoga session, I'm able to work with them in two different ways.  The first is a pose-focused approach.  This approach is for you if you're looking to understand poses and how to enter and exit poses with skill and proper technique.  For example, I've worked with people on their downward-facing dog, seated twists, lotus pose, headstand and triangle as well as pranayama (breathing techniques).  

The second approach I use in the functioning-focused approach.  With this approach I work with people to increase their mobility, stability and strength while reducing their pain, strain & stress.  I personalize each client's sessions to address their needs and goals.  I've worked with clients dealing with illness, breathing hindrances, age-related issues, injuries from car accidents, headaches, chronic stress, back pain and other issues.  

In other words, I've done hundreds of private sessions helping people like you execute their practice with more skill and/or function better in order to live better!  

 Some people use private sessions as their gateway to a traditional yoga class, while others use their private sessions to improve their day-to-day activities.

Either way, if you'd like to book a private session call: 605-366-9405
