Spirit Rising, which took second place in CityVoters' Best Yoga Studio 2010, serves daily morning and evening classes in flavors including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin, and Meditation. A classic Ashtanga class focuses on synchronized breathing with a progressive series of postures to detoxify and improve circulation while an innovative option, such as healthy backs yoga, adapts different forms of yoga to help heal backs damaged from botched backyard wrestling moves.

Yoga stretches stressed folks into a state of relaxedness so sublime they no longer spend weekends shouting at seagulls. Spirit Rising's dedicated instructors teach each class with plenty of personal attention and a healing philosophy. The studio is clean and comfortable, and yoga mats are available for the tragically mat-less masses.

All you hope in a class. And such a wonderful, beautiful atmosphere! – Lindsay B.
Spirit Rising Yoga & Healing
At Spirit Rising Yoga & Healing, the 2011 and 2013 winner of CityVoter's Best Yoga Studio award, yogic poses double as medicine for the body, mind, and soul. Owners Stacey and Jeff Coffey help their students find a peaceful way to navigate the tension and obstacles present in everyday life. Stress melts and muscles strengthen during private yoga instruction and expert-led classes, which range from athletic Ashtanga sessions to gentle Yin routines that bolster connective tissue in the hips and spine. Complimentary mats, pillows, blocks, and belts may be borrowed to assist students' practice or Rube Goldberg machines. In addition to leading yoga, vinyasas, and meditation classes, the studio specializes in alternative healing techniques, such as reiki, massage therapy, and auricular acupuncture, that retune the body's natural energy flow.
