Arlene De Massa

I was drawn to yoga because it purifies and integrates body, mind, and spirit. In my classes, I emphasize on the breath, balance and rounding as a foundation of Asana and begin to introduce yoga into daily life. In 1991, I trained in Denver to be certified as a Callanetics instructor. I taught Callanetics for two year in West Bloomfield. I have been practicing yoga since 1999. Yoga has changed my life. My passion for yoga has led me to open Yoga Now in 2003. I hold an RYT teaching certificate from Richard Rahn at Yoga Now. I enjoy travel, cooking and decorating in any spare time.

  • Better Backs
  • This class works on developing core strength and stretches for the back and hips, as well as deep breathing - 3 main causes of back pain.


  • Gentle Yoga
  • This class is a mild practice that is entirely appropriate for true beginners, more experienced students looking for a gentle stretch, or even persons with minor injuries or physical limitations.

  • Slow Flow
  • This class links together a series of postures, flowing from one to the next, moving quickly, building heat and strength. Practice in a heated room.

  • Better Backs
  • The wall creates a unique yoga session that’s both fun and enlightening.
