Namaste from the desert.
Yoga + Joshua Tree = Nirvana
The sweeping Joshua Tree desert landscape offers the mind and body a unique and mystical stillness not found anywhere else in the world. It's astonishing what the expansive desert can do for your yoga practice. The fresh High Desert air, the endless blue skies and abundant starry nights, the unusual plant and animal life all inspire a yoga session like you've never experienced.
Words are inadequate for what is an indescribable feeling of yoga in Joshua Tree. Experience it for yourself. And bring a refreshed practice and perspective back home with you.
Namaste is a Sanskrit word meaning “I bow to you." It’s the idea that there is an eternal light within every being. The word Namaste is used to acknowledge that the light in me honors the light in you.
Our Yoga Philosophy
Yoga means "union." Its purpose is to unite. You could say that's our goal at Desert Reset: To unite like-minded seekers who would become lifelong friends, to join you with the magestic desert for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and to blend you with your own highest self. Our desire is to create unions of all kind. Yoga is one of the powerful ways we do that.
We believe in the potentiality of yoga to faciliate union and awakening. We begin each day with Morning Mindful Hatha Yoga to awaken the mind/body connection, and we have a relaxing evening Yoga Nidra, as well.
Our teachers are highly trained and very experienced with a vast knowledge of yoga and anatomy, providing precise instruction, as well as modifications for a safe, comfortable experience at any level.
All yoga is done at your own pace.

Breathwork is a therapeutic modality that utilizes conscious control of breathing. It is meant to influence your mental, emotional and/or physical state, often by removing blockages of painful memories or experiences. Breathwork can be a powerful tool of self-exploration and healing. There is much to be gained in a breathwork class as controlled breathing has been shown to reduce stress, increase alertness and boost your immune system. Let’s get to breathing!
Evening Yoga Nidra
THURSDAY @ 8:30PM • 60 MINUTES
The desert environment, in and of itself, lends itself to deep restful sleep, add Yoga Nidra to that and you’re bound to sleep like a yogi. Also known as dynamic sleep, Yoga Nidra guides the body to relax deeply while the mind remains inwardly alert. Yoga Nidra pioneer, Swami Satyananda Saraswati, refers to it as “reaching the border between waking and sleeping states.” It is very similar to the hypnotic state, and it’s the perfect modality for the close of the day to lead you into a deep yogi night's sleep.
We do reserve the right to change the type of yoga class offered and the teacher, due to circumstances beyond our control. Thank you for understanding.
