The Yoga Shack is a Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga, and Meditation Sanctuary serving clients from our location in downtown Sarasota. We love yoga and are so happy to have a wonderful space to share with our community. Our goal is to continue to offer quality Yoga classes that embody the full essence of yoga in an oasis of fun, healing, and good energy. We offer a mixed level of classes including Yoga Foundation, All Levels Vinyasa Yoga, and Power Vinyasa as well as Yin Yoga. We also offer donation classes in our beautiful outdoor courtyard and workshops on a variety of topics. All of our classes include pranayama (breath technique), asana (postures), dhyana (meditation), and relaxation.
The original Yoga Shack opened in 2012 inside a small, unused loggia of a downtown fitness studio. As the popularity of this grassroots project grew, so did its floor space and enclosing structure. Later, when owner/operator Courtenay spotted the business card of a particular new yogi in town, she felt an immediate pull to meet her.
The two became fast friends and subsequent business partners – the yin to the other’s yang. As business partners, they soon realized they had more energy and excitement for their passion of bringing yoga to others than what the walls of the Yoga Shack could hold. Thus, began the expansion efforts of The Yoga Shack (TYS).
The environment of TYS Sarasota will remind you of a trip to Costa Rica – or the trip you want to take.
TYS Sarasota has a rustic feel, from the natural bamboo flooring, to the corrugated aluminum roof and walls, and strings of festive lights. Located in Downtown Sarasota, it offers a hide-away atmosphere with professional, experienced, and welcoming teachers.
It’s a place where people of all shapes, sizes, and lifestyles can practice their poses in the natural, organic, heat (although we do make minor temperature adjustments for health benefits, when the organic temperature is too extreme).
