“The community here is absolutely amazing. I started practicing here in January and felt at home immediately, even though I had never step foot into a yoga studio. Every teacher and staff member is warm and inviting. During classes, teachers are really great about giving modifications to help you do what’s best do your body that day with no judgment. I also love the variety of classes offered. They welcome and embrace beginners in all classes. I recommend this studio to everyone and anyone!”
