David Turner founded Yoga Eight with three goals in mind: accessible classes, a comfortable environment, and a student-focused practice. The result is a welcoming studio where experienced instructors with more than 200 hours of training each take their time to help students develop a meaningful practice, regardless of skill level. Yoga Eight's jam-packed schedule mixes challenging Ashtanga and athletic Vinyasa styles for a diverse regimen to challenge seasoned yogis and give beginners the building blocks of a serious yoga practice.
The first time Amanda Uphoff attended a yoga class, her clothing still bore hints of her infant son's spittle. As she down-dogged her way to yoga mastery, she found a peaceful clarity that balanced her hectic life as a parent. Troubled by the growing rates of childhood obesity and youth eating disorders, Amanda decided to open her own family-focused studio. Blackbird Family Yoga offers classes for every age group, from freshly hatched infants to the parents that incubated them. Popular classes include family yoga and postnatal sessions, in which mothers find peace in their child's pose and infants grapple with life's complexity in adults’ poses. The studio supplies childcare to accommodate parents who need a break from child wrangling.
