The yoga instructor was so welcoming and the level one yoga really helped me relax after a busy day. In addition, the studio was both spacious and clean! I look forward to using my other classes!

I've only taken the yoga 1 class, which was quite a beginner class, as the teacher warned me over the phone. It was, as many reviewers have already mentioned, a quiet and slow stretch class with the focus on breath. I loved it. I've been trying for years to begin a yoga practice, but the so-called beginner classes always stressed me out a bit. They are, to my mind, too much for beginners (since when are headstands a beginner move?), and too long, with not enough focus on breathing. There are plenty of classes with the focus on a good workout; I also need stress relief, a more spiritually focused practice, and I want to look forward to the class. So keep up the good work!

It is a wonderful place, but neither the company website nor the write-up mentions that these yoga classes differ from the rest by being primarily about stretching - not sun salutations or holding yoga poses to build flexibility and strength. I've been to two classes that have been 45-minute or 90-minute guided stretches alongside guided breathing and meditation exercises. The classes are relaxing and the staff are all friendly and supportive, but the classes are not what I expected.

About The Peace School


A nonprofit educational organization, The Peace School promotes tranquility of mind, body, and spirit through yoga, tae kwon do, and meditation courses that welcome students of all ages. Originally established in 1972 by Grand Master Myungsu Y.S. Kim, the school has been recognized by the United Nations, developed senior and nursing-home programs, and helped establish Peace Day, an annual Chicago celebration of peace and cultural institutions.

At the school, a coalition of experienced instructors—all of whom have trained for at least 10 years—leads students in three levels of yoga, traditional tae kwon do, and other exercises. Group practice, discussion, and lectures divulge the fundamentals of peace breathing meditation, while a hands-on self-defense for women class opens up discussion of attitude, confidence, and safety issues. Massage classes emphasize acupressure technique and deep breathing, while courses in infant massage can help babies sleep better.
