Beginner with Cynthia
Clean and peaceful yoga studio. The Instructor, Cynthia was very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. I would come back
Beginner with Melanie
Perfect beginner class. I needed to take a few steps back and focus on proper form. Melanie was awesome!
Beginner with Cynthia
Cynthia's class was amazing! Her instructions were very helpful and informative and overall the class flowed well. I'll definitely be back!
Beginner with Cynthia
Very focused on helping you find the right positions for moves. Lots of tiny movements create a deeper stretch. Great for beginners and those with more experience who are looking to put more emphasis on each pose.
Beginner with Lyndsay
I think the instructor was great and the class was relaxing, just not what I was looking for personally. I needed more sweating and less relaxing!
Beginner with Cynthia
Cynthia is an amazing instructor. 5 stars!
Beginner with Dee
Calm, precise yoga. So good, and right for me since I don't have the poses clear in my mind yet. Will be back soon. Dee seems like a joy.

Beginner with Melanie
I had never been to the studio before but they were very welcoming, showing me around and explaining everything. The class was perfect for what I was looking for- slow, focused on building vocabulary and getting comfortable with the positions. Melanie was very kind and accommodating.

Melanie was a very helpful instructor. This class is good for a beginner and those looking to get deeper into stretches.

The class involved deep stretches and minuscule movements. Great core work. Cynthia is a blast!
Beginner with Cynthia
Went with my boyfriend who has been trying out yoga. Wonderful instructor. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Will definitely be back even though I'm not a beginner!
Beginner with Melanie
Definitely for beginners. I consider myself a little more intermediate, but I enjoyed the slower pace and deep stretching.
Beginner with Melanie
Melanie was awesome!
Beginner with Cynthia
Fun class, sometimes challenging for a beginner. Great explanations about what we should be doing and what variations there are for different levels. Cynthia walks around and helps you get in the right position.
Beginner with Caroline
Caroline, absolutely the best. Best instructor I have had thus far.
Beginner with Caroline
Caroline was great. It was my first yoga; the class is well balanced, thorough and felt great afterwards.
Beginner with Cynthia
Cynthia is wonderful!
Beginner with Dee
Dee and the "regulars" in the class were so supportive and welcoming! I've never been big into yoga - a little afraid to try - but the class was great! Informative, relaxing, just lovely. Highly recommend for newcomers to yoga like me!
Beginner with Cynthia
Great morning stretch and solid understanding of the fundamentals. Wonderful instructor.
