Revolution Yoga shows advanced yogis how to flow like pros while helping beginners—including babies, kids, and teens—cultivate strength, flexibility, and focus. Through a series of Vinyasa poses that fuse breath and motion, students morph into peaceful trees, graceful dolphins, and majestic locusts. Arm balances, inverted positions, and hip-opening moves challenge bodies and inspire minds in the intermediate class, and all-levels open sessions builds lean and limber muscles through a series of customizable postures. Mommy and Me sessions team toddlers with a parent, grandparent, or life-size Gumby doll for 45 minutes of barking-downward-dogs, hissing-cobras, and fluttering-butterflies poses. Youngins can also take their own classes, learning to chant mantras between jump-rope rhymes and nana-nana-boo-boos. Alternatively, props and gentle movements guide the Yoga Nidra class, melting away stress and its telltale signs, from tension headaches to mysteriously twitching eyebrows.

When they're not leading group classes, the studio's veteran instructors set the pace during customized one-on-one sessions. One–two-hour private instruction in the studio helps beginners thrive by teaching them how to align each pose and adapt it to their specific needs. Advanced students also benefit from one–two hours of tailored guidance, learning how to build sturdy bridge poses with their bodies and beautiful birdhouses in their souls.
Revolution Yoga’s crew of yogis espouses the virtues of self-exploration through movement and meditation, a feat accomplished in 17 different types of yoga classes held seven days a week. Classes are held in full-sized classrooms or a space set aside exclusively for families and kids. Unlike many yogis, the teachers look beyond yoga and napping inside armoires to fully explore the scope of self, turning to community and arts to supplement their teachings.
Behind the studio stands Revolution Gallery, which has hosted paintings, mixed media design shows, films, literature, and musical performances. The staff also runs an artisan boutique, which is full of clothing, herbal supplements, and yoga gear—all manufactured from fair-trade products that provide jobs to unemployed trees and shrubs.
