Things to Know When Coming to Class:
Be On Time– We lock the door at the start of our yoga classes so please be sure to be on time for class and if you’re ever running a few minutes behind, give us a call and we’ll be happy to wait the extra minute or two before starting class. Our studio phone number is 312-938-9642.
We Don’t Have a Buzzer- People often think we have a buzzer system because our neighbors do, but YFAB does not have a working buzzer. The downstairs door on Hoyne should always be unlocked at least 15 minutes prior to all class and workshop times. In the unlikely event that you arrive for a class and this door is locked, please give us a call at 312-938-9642.
We are on the Third Floor- Our studio is located atop a magnificent three-story building on Grand Ave and Hoyne Ave. Unfortunately there is no elevator, so the stairs are the only option. We like to think of this as a part of your warm up for class.
We Rent Mats & Towels for $2 each– We rent yoga mats and hand towels for $2. We also have mat cleaner for those that bring their own mats and like to spray them down afterwards. For our Monthly AutoPay Members, we offer mat storage where you can enjoy the added convenience of being able to leave your mat at the studio.
We Aren’t “Hot Yoga” But We Don’t Like to be Cold- At Yoga For All Beings, we like to keep our yoga space warm in cooler months. A touch of warmth during yoga practice not only feels nice when it’s cold outside, but the warmth also aids in the process of opening and stretching the body as well as adding a sense of comfort to a practice that asks a lot of us both physically and mentally.

Keep Fit, Be Flexible
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.
In the modern western world, the term “yoga” is typically associated with the physical practice or asana (the yoga postures). But yoga is not merely just a form of exercise. It is a way of living. A regular yoga practice promotes a balanced lifestyle. The more we practice the better we become- physically, mentally and emotionally. Here are just a few things that yoga can help with:
- Depression, anxiety, stress
- Fitness and stamina
- Weight loss
- Increasing bone density
- Improving flexibility and posture
- Releasing physical, mental and emotional stress/tension
YOGA IS 99% PRACTICE AND 1% KNOWLEDGE
