The Yoga Room is all about inclusivity. The studio hosts classes for beginners, intermediates, experts, and even expectant mothers. This fits nicely into the studio’s stated philosophy that "yoga is a personal practice, not a competitive or comparative one."

Aside from the full schedule of yoga, fitness, and dance classes, special events such as an Ayurveda workshop encourage students to stretch their minds as well as their bodies.
