Yoga From The Heart

“Yoga From The Heart was created by the realization that yoga heals! Yoga builds strength and balance, reduces stress and cultivates mindfulness. Yoga creates community, friendships and opportunities for your health and wellness. YFTH believes everyone should experience these benefits.”

Experiencing first hand the life changing gifts of yoga, Diane Couture embarked on a journey to bring those gifts to others by opening Yoga From the Heart in West Hartford Center in March of 2018. After a Studio flood September 2021, we relocated “over the mountain” to a beautiful sunlit space in Avon Village! Owned and managed by Diane and filled with instructors who teach from their authentic journeys, YFTH has become a community based studio for health and wellness, offering a range of classes designed for every BODY and every JOURNEY. If you like an athletic approach to yoga, try our heated power vinyasa and Yoga Sculpt classes. Just beginning your yoga journey, we offer all levels flow classes and Intro to Yoga Series classes. And when you need a moment to restore, meditate and deeply stretch, try our gentle and restorative. Using a combination of asanas, heat, music, candlelight, and aromatherapy the “flow” of every class will allow you to explore your edge and get in touch with your heart and soul.

Our certified teachers have diverse training backgrounds comprised of Kripalu, West Hartford Power Yoga, Samadhi Yoga, Hot Hatha Sculpt, Forrest, Journey of Yoga, Balanced Body Barre, Total Barre, Holistic Health, Reiki, Medicinal Aromatherapy, Guided Imagery, and Crystal Healing.

Diane’s vision for Yoga From the Heart was realized and put into motion after completing her 200 RYT training at West Hartford Yoga and Advanced Teacher Training with Ana Forrest. Her personal well being was fueled by over 20 years practicing on her mat, but the realization that “yoga can heal” body, mind and spirit, emerged during her trainings, at the time of great loss in her life. She found her practice gave her balance in her life and deepened her connection to compassion, allowing space to give more to family and others. Living only blocks from the studio, she is immersed in the West Hartford community and is heartfelt every time a student walks or rides their bike to practice, every time she can partner with a fellow business, every time she can lend an ear in a time of struggle and every free Community Class she can offer!

“A community based Boutique Yoga Studio as a peaceful sanctuary to bring your body, mind, and heart into harmony…is all I could have ever dreamed!”
