Ames Yoga Center

Ames Yoga Center specializes in individual therapies including Integrative Yoga Therapy, Restorative Energy Therapy, and Flower Essence Therapy. We offer group classes in Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Mindful Meditation, and unique special events. We have provided wellness support to the Ames community for over 22 years.

Individual integrative therapy sessions are designed specifically for the clients needs. Ruthann meets the client where they are and develops a program which inspires healing and transformation into patterns that support the clients highest intentions.

The therapeutic yoga classes incorporate gentle asanas and breath work to melt away stress and increase well being and promotes healing from within. The meditation classes utilize proven mind-body techniques to reduce stress, support balance and well being in body and mind.


Surrounded by live plants and inspiring art work, our studio provides a nurturing space for meditation and yoga practice. Our studio is located in the historic Main Street District of downtown Ames, Iowa.
