I love Downtown Yoga! I go there four times a week, and it has done wonders for my body! The teachers are amazing - kind and knowledgeable. Yoga has simultaneously strengthened and stretched my muscles, and it's calming to my mind.

I could not agree with Jodi more! I go twice a week and it has made a big difference in my life. Love the teachers and the downtown location.

I am very grateful for my 6am class with Jim during any weekday. I have been to a few workshops there also, and just love the energy of the studio. Thanks for bringing to us this wonderful community. :)

I am so glad I found Downtown Yoga - I've only been doing yoga for about 8 months - started in Kate's Intro class. I will continue to go for classes there for as long as they have them!

Great article! And I can attest first hand that Downtown Yoga is an amazing studio. Kate & Jim are my gurus, only without the attitude.

I can not say enough good things about Downtown Yoga. Jim and Kate as well as the rest of the instructors will embrace you with their warmth and support from the moment you step in the door. It's a wonderful door to step through!

I was an enthusiastic participant in yoga sessions until repeated encounters with bad odors that seemed to form a tide that enveloped me to the point of nausea. What is wrong with people? As people are forced to pay increasing taxes because of swelling unsustainables, they must eat more fast food and canned products (e.g. Beans). This is no idle claim, as I have spent much time calculating the actuarial likelihood of such an eventuality. Upshot: yoga classes will succumb to the rising tides of unpleasant odors produced by those in one's vicinity.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
