We focus on Yoga for Real People!
A community-focused yoga studio in Seattle's Phinney/Greenwood neighborhood. All classes at our studio are taught in the vininyoga tradition. Our goal is to make yoga available and accessible to all people. We focus on yoga as a way to serve an individual's unique physical condition and lifestyle, not as a means of achieving the "perfect" body or posture. Join us and find a place to unwind, an opportunity to develop your mind and body, and a community of support for healing and growth. Ask about our private yoga therapy and yoga teacher training programs!
LOVE their "Yoga for Round Bodies" series! The instructor is very body-positive, and generous with reminders to be gentle with our bodies. There's no weight-loss talk, or body-shaming, and she reminds us that those of us who carry a lot of weight on our frames are STRONG because, well, we're CARRYING a lot of weight with us every day. She suggests pose/posture modifications in a way that doesn't feel like a "modification," so much as it feels like respecting the way your body works, and what is is currently capable of. Lots of focus on not injuring yourself. LOVE LOVE LOVE this class. :)
