About The Yoga Loft

52485 SW First St.

Scappoose, OR,  97056

Currently, due to Covid19, The Yoga Loft is a virtual yoga studio, only offering classes online via "Zoom."   Chris's classes will be presented from her home studio and Gary's from the Yoga Loft in Scappoose.

Since Fall of 1989 yoga classes were taught in the space we now call The Yoga Loft.  Gary Domby, D.C., began teaching yoga to some of his Chiropractic patients one evening per week in the room above Scappoose Chiropractic Clinic.  In Spring of 1993 Chris Eisenschmidt began teaching with some beginner's classes.  Now classes in Yoga and MELT Method are offered each week.


Our yoga classes have never been advertised, only promoted through word of mouth and by virtue of happy yogis and yoginis.  Our classroom is small, accommodating up to 10 students comfortably, and well equipped with props - mats, blankets, blocks, straps and bolsters.  We like to think that our atmosphere is friendly, supportive and inspiring.

Style:   The Yoga Loft does not feature one particular style of yoga, rather an eclectic blend of Hatha Yoga, as the result of the varied studies of the instructors.  We have been influenced by Iyengar Yoga, Tri-Yoga, Ashtanga, Svaroopa, and others.  MELT Method is a self treatment developed by Sue Hitzmann.
