"This place is great! I attended a free yoga session and couldn't get over how welcoming people were. No one looked down on anyone and people are friendly.

Shanell is very patient, responsive and joyful person to learn yoga from.

If you ever want to try Hatha yoga and NOT feel intimidated, this is the place and you will keep coming back."
