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.

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.

-Elizabeth S.-


The studio is very clean and the energy is very good.  The instructor that I had was very knowledgeable and gave me good guidance.  I was delighted...my Endorphins were flying!!

-Helene K.-


I love the studio-the ambiance, the music, the eye pillows and when the instructors come around with the quick aromatic massages-sensational. The classes are well paced, the instructor's voices very soothing; in short, the best yoga place to which I've been. Absolutely love the trance dances!

-Marilyn F.-


Dependability, consistently excellent teaching, well-organized and maintained studio, organized business practices and the SPIRIT (mentioned last but certainly not least!)

-Sarah H.-


I like everything about your services. The studio is warm and inviting. Your staff is completely considerate, educated  and welcoming.  Every time I leave the studio, I feel centered and focused.  Absolute yoga has truly changed my life.

Every Kid's Yoga Teacher Training - Creating Inclusive Yoga Classes for Children with Varied Abilities & Needs with Craig Hanauer on Friday, October 16 -Sunday, October 18. Don’t we all have “special needs”? The meaning of the word yoga is “to yoke”, which speaks to the fact that yoga is all about the integration of mind, body and spirit. In accordance with this definition and intention, Every Kid’s Yoga approaches the art of teaching yoga to groups of children as an integrated process that views them along a continuum in terms of ability and need. Because we are likely to encounter those identified as “typically developing” alongside those identified as having “special needs”, yoga teachers must have the ability to quickly assess group and individual needs and to respond accordingly. Therefore in this training you will learn how to teach yoga to groups of children with varied abilities and needs. Invest in yourself to teach children, register today.

Discover the many ways that yoga can promote the healthy development of children, ages 4-12. In addition to learning all you need to know about creating a children’s yoga class, you will learn how the practice of yoga addresses difficulties with attention, self-regulation,
speech and language, learning, and high and low muscle tone.

This experiential training will address how to work with children exhibiting the following “special needs” in a group setting:

-Those who are easily over-stimulated, potentially impulsive and/or distractible
-Those who exhibit poor social skills and boundaries
-Those who are learning disabled/with an emphasis on speech and language based learning disabilities
-Those who are potentially oppositional and/or disruptive
-Those who present with high or low muscle tone
