The Yoga Project - Yoga at its finest

Serving Sellwood and beyond since 2004

About Us

We have been located in the heart of Sellwood since 2004, just around the corner from Grand Central Bakery at the corner of 13th and Nehalem. At the top of the stairs you will find a warm, inviting space ideal for yoga classes and workshops.

As of August 1, 2013, this yoga space is now CONNIYOGA under the direction of Christina Bernunzio. We wish Cristina the best of luck with the studio, and between now and the spring of next year TYP will be conducting a limited number of classes and workshops in the studio on Sundays and Mondays.


Vilma Zaleskaite, director.

Vilma, who holds a RYT 500 certificate, began her yoga in the Iyengar style and today counts Angela Farmer, Victor Van Kooten, Mary Paffard and Rodney Yee among her most formative influences. Her distinctive spirit and meditative style often provoke her students to complain that she leaves them "too relaxed to get up and leave."

Bill Walters.

Bill has been teaching in the Portland area and elsewhere since 1994. He practices and teaches in the Iyengar tradition and has benefited over the years from studying with many fine teachers. He especially appreciates that for the past 15 years he has enjoyed the guidance and friendship of his principal teacher, Rodney Yee.
