- Testimonials -

Outstanding, experienced instructors. I especially like the spirituality in many of the classes. I also like the serene and spa-like atmosphere of the studio. Being able to purchase a package of individual classes suits my hectic schedule and limited budget. There are many different classes offered at many different times by different instructors. Very important for my unpredictable schedule. The variety will keep me challenged and engaged.

-Kathleen B.-

I felt welcome the moment I walked in. The soft lighting, candles, music and scent of the studio was very peaceful - exactly what I needed at the end of my day. It was my first yoga class and although there were many skill levels represented in class, [the instructor] made me feel at ease immediately. She encouraged me along the way, praised me, corrected my postures, and remembered my name! I was made aware of your free week trial from my sister, and after this first class, I purchased a [series] for 15 more classes! Thank you!

-Breanne R.-

I originally purchased the Groupon online and have found through my search and attendance at many different yoga studios that Absolute yoga is my favorite! I feel very comfortable in the studio, the teachers are amazing, and feel that I have obtained an amazing, concentrated workout.

Music can be an integral part of a yoga class, creating a mood, feeling state, and energy that can inspire both you and your students. However a playlist that doesn’t quite fit with the asana and sequences of your class can alternatively cause cacophony for both you and your students. Join Elyce as you explore ways to create appropriate playlists, whether your classes are energetic or gentle, and everything in between. Attendees should have Spotify or iTunes on a Smart Phone, iPad, or laptop. Bring your device with you to this workshop.

It also serves as a beneficial tool to help guide them in opening up to their innate and natural creativity. Join us for an afternoon of yoga and creative fun. In this workshop, children will learn yoga poses inspired by the autumn season. We will then have fun creating with crafts designed to foster and develop their focusing skills.
