The Fifth Dimension
What to expect at a Yoga class at “The Fifth Dimension”.
Please read carefully. This may not be the studio for you, but if it is… I can’t wait to see you on your mat!
My name is Haris Harini Lender. I have been teaching Hatha Yoga for 23 years. I’m a certified Integral Yoga teacher at the 500-hr level and also certified in Prenatal, Children, Raja and Stress Management. I have also been an international yoga trainer for the last 12 years.
But seriously… who cares about all of that anymore? Let’s just do this thing!
Studio photos coming soon

Class will be held at Yurtananda in a newly built studio designed for this purpose.
The address is: 108 Comfort lane, Buckingham, VA
The gate will be open. Carpool if you can.
Turn left immediately after the gate and park on the gravel.
There is room for 12-14 folks to join so to guarantee a space our first preference is that you go to the FB group to RSVP or if you don’t use FB text me. 727-420-1671 I’ll add your name to the list.
If you reserved a space via FB or text and you can’t make it, please text to cancel.
This is not a standard Integral Yoga class and it might be different from your typical hatha yoga experience,but it’s how we’re gonna roll. It has a nice flow to it and my goal is that you will float out the door. This is my fifth Yoga studio, so I feel confident I know what I’m doing, but I’ll be honest- I’m 60 plus years old and this time… I’m doing it my way.
(Spark up the Frank Sinatra) VERY grass roots, low key.
OTHER DETAILS to determine if this is a good fit for you:
Must be 13 or older, or old enough to remain in silence for 75 min and follow instruction.
Classes are all 75 min and start right on time. Feel free to arrive up to 30 minutes early and stay one hour late to extend your practice time or to enjoy a bagged lunch by the river or with friends at the picnic tables in front of the studio.
Classes are held in silence. Do yourself a favor and try to begin the silence from the time you leave your car. After you put your phone away!
The door to the studio WILL be locked two minutes before start time. I.E. if you want to make it to class and be on time I suggest you arrive ON YOUR MAT no later than 5 minutes before class. Sooo…pulling into the driveway 10-15 minutes before is a good idea. You don’t want to disturb someone else’s peace or be out of breath and frantic when we OM in… right? Please do not knock or try to come in after start time. We’ll see ya next time. Leave as many belongings as you can outside on the porch in the cubbies. Let’s leave the studio and our minds clutter free.
Some folks LOVE music during class. Others not so much.
Music will sometimes be played during class. Depending on the teacher. Check the class descriptions when they are available. Uplifting, soothing, spiritually oriented yogi style or instrumental to help open your heart. Possibly even a popular song or two designed to make you melt on the inside. Silence during meditation or VERY soft Instrumental music.
No perfume please. Essential oils might be used during class to help create a sense of calm.
No phones allowed in the building.
Please bring your own mat and full water bottle. We have no running water
For now the potty is inside our RV. No bathroom or running water in the studio.
No masks in class… we do a lot of deep breathing. It’s just not healthy.
Out of courtesy to everyone in class, I would be so happy if you would consider refraining from attending if you have had any medical shots in the last three weeks. Tequila shots are another story. But don’t have too many because they aren’t good for you either!
The space is open for up to one hour after class to encourage communal gathering. Picnic tables are outside if you want to meet a friend and bring a bagged lunch!
You ARE more than welcome to take the 8 min walk down to the river after class to eat or enjoy the stellar vibe and The Mighty James River. There are picnic tables and hammocks. While you are here for Yoga class please do not walk around our property, past the fence, up near the yurt near our personal living space.
We will shut and lock the gate 75 minutes after class… so plan accordingly
Must love dogs. I have dogs. They will not be IN class but they will
make their presence known. That said, please leave your own pups at home.
Please do not bring “stuff”. We don’t have ANY room for tchotchkies and things, nothing- not even little statues for an altar. Your presence is all we ask for.
This is a pay what you can studio =)
Pay-what-you-can is equity pricing. It acknowledges that there is an imbalance in our systems, which have precluded traditionally marginalized communities from upward mobility and access to wellness care.
We live in one of the poorest counties in VA soooo… If you have a bit more, pay more, which funds partial scholarships for those who have less. Sliding-scale pricing has been largely missing from the yoga community, which is why it has remained an exclusive practice. Let’s do our part to help bring yoga to every BODY. This is what being a yogi looks like!
If you are attending a class with Haris Harini she accepts cash, venmo or zelle.
Haris also LOVES to barter! Wanna feed the dogs one day while I’m in town? Or spend the night sometime if I go away? Write your IOU on a sticky note and put it in the jar.
I will find you!
If you are attending a class with another teacher use the jar for payment or any other system your teacher uses.
See you on your mat!
