Chicago School of Yoga
Chicago School of Yoga isn't just a place where students come to study the marriage of mind and body; it's a place where disciples can begin their journey down the path toward becoming a yoga teacher themselves. The school's program encompasses a yogi's entire education, leading trainees from introductory courses designed for the beginning practitioner to full 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher certification. The 17 on-staff trainers fill up the weeks with dozens of classes to create a calendar's worth of sessions capable of accommodating any schedule. Beyond the teachings of the regular staff, the school also hosts special workshops and conventions, such as the We Love Yoga convention that gathers Chicago's most renowned yogis in a single venue for three days in September of mind-blowing body bending.
With two hardwood-floored spaces lined with mirrors and painted bright green and red, the facility capably hosts two classes at once. Dark tile and cherry-stained woods insulate the lobby and other communal areas from the city's stressful sounds, banishing the honks of taxi horns and undercover policemen attempting to infiltrate gangs of geese.
