About

The team at just yoga lead classes for all levels, including back to basics classes that focus on building a firm yoga foundation. They also lead Hatha classes that focus on breathing and slow-moving postures, Kundalini classes that combine meditation with energetic poses to strengthen abs and immune systems, and Restorative yoga classes that help students overcome stress-related disorders through supported poses. In fact, the focus overall is on a more relaxed form of yoga than one might find at other studios. Part of the reason for that might be the team of instructors, who draw on backgrounds in a range of healing techniques.

That laid-back spirit might also emanate from the quirky studio itself, which has a gleaming floor made from ten different kinds of wood as well as two bathrooms finished in bright red and blue respectively. The space also provides views of the North Shore Mountains, and it's warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Interaction there is not focused solely on yoga, though, as the staff likes to get to know their patrons, going so far as to chat over tea after classes. That same sensibility pervades the on-site shop, which stocks not only eco-friendly yoga mats, but lamps, organic products, teas, and gifts.
