Where to begin.. where to begin..Original recommendation
I started practicing here around the new year (2017) as a way to reconnect with yoga and myself. I didn't know what I was getting into, but I was happily surprised by Nilo and Laura (the owners and teachers), the location, and environment of studio. First, the location is right in my neighborhood, making walking a breeze. There are also bus stops nearby for those who live a little further (and metered+residential parking). The studio itself is quaint, clean, and peaceful. It is not overly done and has just what you need to succeed: blanket, blocks, belts, hot/cold/room temp water, clean restroom, 'locker' rooms with cubbies for belongings, and towels. ...
Excellent studio! I literally signed up for Yelp so that I could review Excelsior Yoga. Laura and Nilo are amazing people and instructors. I go to yoga multiple times per week now and love it. I always get a really good work-out and really feel like I'm building strength. ...Original recommendation
My whole family loves Excelsior Yoga! This is a great studio in our neighborhood. Every class is a little different, and you can practice to your level.Original recommendation
You should also check out the Kapale self defense class and Jujitsu on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They make self defense fun. We don't live in the safest city, do yourself a favor, learn some self defense and get a great work out at the same time.
Laura and Danilo have really helped me work toward my health goals. I'm stronger and more flexible than when I started.
