We would like to welcome you to St. Petersburg Yoga to experience the area’s highest level of Authentic Yoga Instructors. We specialize in transformational mind and body Yoga in all of its varied techniques. We are passionate about showcasing how the power of Yoga arises when the ancient techniques are used to balance the whole human being.
We believe that mindfulness practices including Yoga and Meditation have the power to create profound positive transformations in our body, mind, and life. It’s our passion to bring uncompromising, authentic instruction to the community; helping our students learn how to use these practices as tools for creating balance and well-being in their own lives.
The studio was founded over 25 years ago by Chris Acosta, and has grown from a one-instructor studio to one of the area’s largest and most trusted centers for Yoga & Wellness. Our center offers over 70 group classes each week as well as weekly Mind-Body-Life Workshops on topics ranging from Back Pain to Anxiety. We also provide Private Yoga Sessions, and run 200 & 500 Hour Teacher Training programs. All instructors at the studio are highly trained and certified at the 500 RYT level with the Yoga Alliance.
Addressing Individual Needs
Our instructors are trained in many different styles of Yoga, from Hatha to Ashtanga, but our studio is much less concerned with the particular “style” of Yoga as we are with addressing the individual needs of the person in front of us. Our studio specializes in helping students discover what the best practices are for their unique body/mind, because we know that Yoga is not one-size-fits-all. This is something we see missing from much of the way modern Yoga is taught, and find that without this important consideration, seemingly helpful practices in Yoga can actually be harmful and imbalancing. It’s our aim to use this understanding to help our students get the most out of Yoga, while avoiding the risks!
