Our studio door is open 15 minutes before every class. There is no buzzer system outside so just come on up when you’re here. We are on the 3rd floor and, yes, stairs are the only option- we like to think of that as a part of your warm up before class. ☺
Yoga For All Beings is fortunate enough to occupy a very beautiful, open space at the top of a historic building in the Ukrainian Village. Situated on the third floor with tons of windows throughout, our studio greets students with lots of natural light and positive vibes. We are not a hot yoga studio but we do like to keep our space warm during colder weather. During cold weather, classes are heated to around 78-82 degrees F. On warmer days classes will not be heated. We have plenty of props for your comfort and convenience including blocks, bolsters, blankets and straps.
Yoga For All Beings sells organic granola bars ($2.00), bottled water ($2) and Yoga for All Beings branded water bottles, tanks and tees. We also rent mats and hand towels for $1.00 each. As a special treat for our students, YFAB offers complimentary hot tea. Often time, our own YFAB students and teachers will contribute to our selection of teas. If you’re inspired to give, we welcome you to join in the sharing. We also have a spacious lounge where you can relax for a few minutes before or after class.

One of the goals of yoga is supreme consciousness, being at one with yourself and at one with the Universe around you. In order to achieve this state of perfect balance and inner peace, one must first quiet the mind. Hence, quieting the mind is not only another goal of the practice, but also a requirement for the practice in and of itself. Yoga is about self-realization and living life in the present moment, at the most profound level. Yoga is about opening up, diving within and experiencing a deep connection with your true self. Yoga is about feeling that interconnectedness with all things and beings. And this is no small task.
Perhaps, one of the best definitions of yoga, as described by Patanjali in his authoritative text, The Yoga Sutra, is a complete stillness of the mind.
Yoga is a union. It is a yoking of all the powers of the mind, the body and the soul with that of a universal power or as some prefer to think of it: the yoking of the individual with it’s true self or true nature.
Yoga is what brings calm amidst a storm. It is skill in action. From the words of famous yogi, B.K.S. Iyengar, “When the restlessness of the mind, intellect and self is stilled through the practice of Yoga, the yogi by the grace of the spirit within himself finds fulfillment.”
Hatha Yoga is the physical practice of yoga that involves creating poses with the body. These physical postures are referred to as asana. Yoga is an eight limb practice, where asana is the third limb and, in the West, perhaps the most commonly known aspect of yoga. A hatha yoga practice not only challenges the body and promotes physical health but it is also a means to calm the mind, create a greater sense of self-awareness and help the practitioner move towards an inner essence of being.
According to the yogis, true happiness, liberation and enlightenment comes from union with the divine consciousness known as Brahman, or with Atman, the transcendent Self. The various yoga practices are a methodology for reaching that goal.
In hatha yoga, for example, postures and breathing exercises help purify the mind, body and spirit so the yogi can attain union.
The short answer is that yoga makes you feel better. Practicing the postures, breathing exercises and meditation makes you healthier in body, mind and spirit. Yoga lets you tune in, chill out, shape up — all at the same time.
