About Us

Melanie Landgraf opened Tosa Yoga in Wauwatosa, WI, in 2006 and spent 7 years growing her classes and creating an amazingly welcome yoga space. Over the summer and fall of 2012, Melanie and her husband, Guy, completed an extensive remodel at our new location just a few blocks away and opened the doors at this new location in December of 2012. They poured their hearts and souls, (a little blood, sweat, and tears, as well!) into creating a beautiful new studio where Tosa Yoga Center would continue to grow and welcome even more students.

Tosa Yoga Center is conveniently located in Wauwatosa’s “East Tosa” on the northeast corner of the intersection of 68th Street and North Avenue. Our extensively remodeled studio is warm and cheerful, with an earthy and reclaimed, yet elegant design and atmosphere. We offer over 20 classes per week, as well as workshops and guest teachers/presenters. We have two yoga rooms, and both are equipped with yoga props (blocks, blankets, bolsters, and straps).

Within the “new” Tosa Yoga Center, our sense of community continues to grow and expand outside of the studio walls.

Our Mission

“At Tosa Yoga Center, we believe in providing an open, warm and welcoming environment for the practice of yoga and other healing activities through balanced routines taught with compassion, dedication and a little laughter. Our intention is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for practice and self-healing. We believe in supporting each individual student in his or her journey toward happiness, well-being, and the union of body, mind and spirit.”

But that’s just a small piece of it. We’re seriously passionate about our students and community—and we want you to be part of it. We strongly believe in supporting our local community, work to promote other local small businesses and charitable organizations, and believe in creating a strong sense of community within our space. Our belief is that the positive community we have within Tosa Yoga Center strongly affects the community around us.

Our top priority is creating a space where you feel comfortable and welcome, so we invite you to experience our yoga classes, workshops and events, feel that positive “vibe,” and add to it with your presence.
