The lobby has a nice feeling with many interesting books, big windows, high ceilings. Our class was in a large room with a nice wooded floor. I most treasure classes that help me... More

We were in town and just hiked 26 miles over two days. We really needed a good yoga class and found many options at Yoga Soup. We decided on a restorative class which is just what we needed after our miles of hiking. They had mats to use, but no towels, so you might want to bring your own.

My daughter and I were visiting from out of the country and really wanted to take a yoga class together. We chanced upon this wonderful place and fell in love with it. We took a level 2 90 minutes class which was great. The staff were very warm and welcoming. I only wish I could go here every day!

The class size on this particuliar day was small - just 3 other students and the teacher did a great job with adjustments throughout class. Easy access from State Street. I... More

Great studio for yoga and not just exercise. Sunday morning class by owner Eddie Elner was real yoga. Yes we did basic asanas and I did get my heart rate up. But the words he said, the focus on the breath, and the balance between asana and philosophy was a rare experience in yoga studios. They have many teachers that... More

Every class in this studio is top notch. Super clean, super friendly and super professionals. They offer free oatmeal on the weekends. The staff is the friendliest gang around. Recommended teachers are Jenni Rawlings, Yoni Berk, Brett Land, Bonnie Crotzer and of course owner Eddie Elner. Amazing place.

Thank rogerad
