Frequently, I have interested people call and inquire about Tranquility Yoga Studio in Owasso.  I love visiting with everyone who inquires about our yoga practice, prices, location, and schedule! Yoga is my passion and I believe that it benefits every body at every age.  Your flexibility or strength level  (or lack of it) are not reasons to refrain from practicing.

Here are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions.

  • What is your class schedule?  Currently (as of September, 2012), our schedule of classes is as follows:  However, we do update our schedule regularly depending on our clients' desires and attendance.

    1. Sundays at 4:00 p.m.

    3. Tuesdays at 5:30 a.m., 10:00 a.m., and 6:00 p.m.

  • How much do you charge?
    1. $10.00 Drop-in charge
    2. $5.62 each class when you purchase a $45.00 punch card for 8 classes with a 6 month expiration date (non-transferable and non-refundable)
    3. $5.50 each class when you purchase a $110.00 punch card for 20 classes with a 6 month expiration date  (non-transferable and non-refundable)
    4. Approximately $3.00 or less per class when you purchase an Unlimited package.   (non-transferable and non-refundable)

      • Unlimited for one month (19 classes per week for options) $80.00 (19 x 4 weeks = 76 or more classes each month) Each class provided you attended all of them would be a little over $1.00.
      • Unlimited for six months (76 or more classes each month x 6 = 456 class options) $432.00  Each class would be less than $1.00 (about 95 cents per class).
      • Unlimited for one year (456 x 2 = 912 class options) $864.00 If you attended them all, each class would cost about 95 cents or less). 
      • May friends punch off of other friend's cards?  Cards are not transferable; however, you may punch twice off of your friend's card if you are a first time attendee.
  • What forms of payment do you take?   We accept cash, checks, and credit cards.
    • Checks should be made out to "Tranquility Yoga in Owasso."
    • Credit or debit cards are charged a courtesy fee of 2.75% as we use the "Square."

    • We are working on adding "EFT" to our fees where you auto draft your payment each month from your checking account. 
    •  Where are you located?
      • While our address is technically listed as 11644 N. 101st East Avenue, Collinsville, OK 74021, we are actually in Owasso.
      • Our studio is located in a residential section because it is in our home.  We believe it is to your advantage, due to the fact that
        • the cost of classes is low due to overhead expenses 
        • the cleanliness of the studio
        • the peacefulness and quiet nature of our practice
        • it is part of my dream to have my studio in my home.
      • Conveniently located off 116th Street North in Owasso between Garnett and 97th Street (Mingo), follow these directions:
        • From Highway 169 north, take the Highway 20/116th Street N. exit.  Turn left at the light as soon as you exit onto 116th Street N going west.  You will drive approximately 2 and 3/4 mile.  Pass the Reasor's complex, pass the German Corner, pass the Sports Complex, pass the Funtastic Island Children's playground, go over the railroad tracks, and immediately turn right.  You will see a Jehovah's Witness Meeting Hall at the corner of 101st East Avenue.  Our home studio is the second on the left or west side of the street.  It is white brick with grey siding.  There is plenty of parking.
        • From Highway 75 north, turn at the flashing lights for 116th Street North traveling east.  Go approximately 3 and 1/4 miles.  Just as you pass the storage units on 97th Street, slow down and turn left at 101st East Avenue.  Second house on the left, big grey barn in back, and this is a dead end street.  We are not part of Country Estates.
        • Call 918-371-3841 if you get lost.  We will be happy to give you more information.

    • What if I am a "beginner" to yoga?  What classes would be appropriate for me?
      1. Any of our classes are modifiable for beginners.  As the instructor, I give many variations of the yoga postures to either help enhance the movement, build strength in the poses, or to prevent injuries in sensitive areas.
      2. Some of our classes move more quickly than others.  You may find that a beginner friendly class would have more direction and a slower pace.  Good class options for beginners include the following:
        • Sunday at 4:00 p.m.
        • Monday at Noon.
        • Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
        • Wednesday at 10:00 a.m.
        • Thursday at 10:00 a.m., 4:00 p.m., and 6:00 p.m.
        • Friday at Noon.
        • Saturday at 9:00 a.m.








    • What should I wear?  While we do offer some yoga clothes here at the studio, I suggest something comfortable without being too blousy or bulky as this type of clothing will restrict movement.  I personally wear Champion brand yoga clothes.  Yoga is practiced barefoot - no socks, no shoes.




    • What do I need to bring with me?  Yes, you need to bring a yoga mat; however, I have mats that you may purchase that I sell for a friend in Tulsa.  I also have blocks, blankets, and straps for sell or borrow.  We rent mats for 50 cents.

    • What time should I arrive?  To be early is to be on time for yoga; to be on time is to be late.  Please arrive at least 15 minutes before class for your first time to fill out the necessary paperwork and arrange payment for the class.  Thank you.


    • May I bring my children with me?  We have one class on Sunday afternoons at 4:00 p.m. where children may practice with the parent if they are 10 years old or older.  However, we do not provide babysitting services and ask that you do not bring them unless it is a special Children's Yoga class.  Children's classes are frequently held in the summer for ages 3 - 9.

    • Do you offer advertisement or daily updates for classes?  
      • Yes, I post on Facebook under "Tranquility Yoga in Owasso" every day.  If you "like" our page, you will receive our postings on your account.  
      • I also post on Twitter under the same name.  I send out a newsletter once each week and an update on the weekend with yoga tips and a current schedule for that week.  
      • To receive the newsletter, please contact me at tranquilityyogastudio@gmail.com or call 918-371-3841.
                        • Are you a personal trainer?  Yes, I am a certified personal trainer at Cooper Institute in Dallas, I am an ERYT with Yoga Alliance, certified Pilates Instructor, and have several other endorsements.  
                        Personal training packages are available for ten personal lessons, and the eleventh lesson is free of charge.  Personal packages are not refundable after the tenth day of purchase.  Less than a 24 hour notice of cancellation would cause the trainee to lose one lesson in the package.

    • Are you a college graduate?  Yes, I have two undergraduate degrees from Northeastern State University in Speech Pathology/Audiology, Elementary Education, and a master's degree from Oral Roberts University.  I am currently a student at Oklahoma State University adding on a Reading Specialist certification.  My yoga certification is from Yoga Spirit Academy, a vocational school certified in the state of Oklahoma and through other yoga workshops for continuing education.  I am an ERYT200 classification with Yoga Alliance.

    • Are workshops available at your studio?  Yes, we have several workshops in the fall of 2012 and enjoy teaching on a variety of subjects.  Our workshops are also available to teach at other locations.
      • September 29:  Dharana:  The Yoga of Concentration and Balancing at 1:30 - 3:45 p.m.
      • Cost of each workshop:  $15 (nonrefundable) reservation fee; $30 for the afternoon teaching and practice.
    Upcoming Workshops include:


        • Chakra Work Part I, II, and II:  October 13, November 17, and December 15 (all Saturday afternoons from 1:30 - 3:45 p.m.)

    • Do you teach at other locations?  Yes, I sub at the Tulsa YMCA's and am an adjunct yoga professor at Rogers State University in addition to my home studio classes.  I am also available for businesses and corporate classes upon request.  Please contact me for more information.  
    • Do you teach all of the classes at the studio?  Yes, with the exception of one class.  Micah Davis, whom I mentored, teaches a Thursday evening class at 6:00 p.m.  She also teaches at the Owasso YMCA.
    • Do you offer gift certificates?  Yes, please contact me for more information.
    • Do you host special events, like birthday parties or get togethers?  Yes, I do, and they have been very successful.
    • Join us for our fourth anniversary party on November 9th as we celebrate 2008 - 2012 as a yoga studio.  We have come a long way, and our dream studio is soon to be built!
