Making yoga accessible to all

At OIC, we strive to make yoga accessible to everyone. We keep our class sizes small so we can offer the best instruction and the safest environment. Our mission is to honor and share the ancient traditions of the practice. Our program is unique to the Omaha area, teaching yoga within our integrative environment gives us the ability to offer several healing modalities under one roof.
