To join a class at Urban Breath Yoga is to join a family of fellow students and encouraging mentors. The studio's blog tells you just how tight-knit the community is: birth announcements alternate with featured member bios, and the vibe is always congratulatory. And, far from being isolated, the group seeks out new practitioners with lessons that cater to yoga beginners. There's a yoga basics class that covers the fundamentals of hatha poses, a beginner series that meets for four weeks, and even a free two-hour intro session.
From these classes, students can progress to more advanced hatha and vinyasa techniques, such as inversions and folding your mat into an origami swan. The studio also hosts specialty workshops on prenatal yoga, as well as teacher-training classes, children's classes, and immersive yoga weekends.
