Evan + Kelly

Yoga is a gift, and we believe it offers something for everyone.

Founders Evan and Kelly Harris have studied yoga traditions since 2002. Inspired after our first trip to India in 2008, we founded tapas yoga shala with the sole intention of providing a studio space and community for the traditional practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. We are committed to uncovering and sharing the remarkable physical potential and piercing insight and awareness available through this practice.

We have traveled far and wide to practice under today’s best instructors. Among these, we consider Matthew Sweeney of Byron Bay, Australia to be our teacher and have studied intensively under his guidance since 2009. Aiming to preserve tradition while welcoming intelligent innovation, we maintain the standard of instruction at tapas. Our instruction stays true to the vision of a yoga studio dedicated to truly deep, yet powerfully modern yoga instruction, accessing the contemplative nature of the yoga tradition through the physical practice.
