Stretch your body, stretch your mind.
Yoga has been proven to be an excellent stress reducer and a wonderful exercise for mind, body, and soul. A regular yoga practice helps to increase blood flow throughout the body, improve flexibility and muscle strength, and help with balance and overall body awareness, all while boosting your mood! Whether you are new to yoga or a beginning practitioner, our yoga classes provide a variety of styles, so unroll your mat today. Many of our yoga classes are available through the FitPass.

We are excited to launch a 200-hour Yoga Alliance (RYS) Yoga Teacher Training program in Fall 2019 – Spring 2020. The program is open to Boston University students and the community.

The course includes techniques, training, and practice; teaching methodology; anatomy and physiology; yoga philosophy, ethics, and lifestyle; and practice both as an assistant and as a lead instructor. Integrating various stretching techniques, strength training, breath work, meditation, and mindfulness practices, the training will be led by Daniel Orlansky and Jennifer Yarro, who together have over 35 years’ experience training yoga teachers. Boston University students may register for this two-part course and receive academic credit by registering on the Student link for PDP MB 401 in the Fall 2019 and PDP MB 402 in Spring 2020.
