"What a beautiful studio! There is so much light coming in from the big windows. The space is clean, spacious and it has a relaxing vibe. Yva has such a beautiful,m energy. You should definitely try one of their classes!"
"This is a wonderful place where Yoga has a meaning. Peaceful and beautiful space, great teachers that combine asanas with introspection."
"Loving this yoga studio! Initially signed up for the 2weeks membership and was very satisfied! Just today I signed up for full membership and couldn’t be happier. Wishing Yva and the team continued success!"
"l joined Yva yoga a few months ago and go 2 or 3 times a week to the beginners class. Yva, the owner, teaches the class, and she's quite wonderful. They also have meditation sessions after the class which is a huge plus. And l love the space. It's the entire floor of a brownstone with great light."
"I love this place! Friendly teachers, beautiful space, lots of fun and interesting use of props, and (at least so far) small and personal class sizes."
"The atmosphere is incredibly clean, open and peaceful.
Yva is a very enthusiastic teacher, attentive to improve the physical condition of her students. Definitely recommend her class. A great way to begin your day :) "
"When I had to switch from the gym to Zoom, I was not an early adapter - not even remotely (pun intended...). I immediately gained 10 pounds on my 160 pound frame - it was not muscle. Once I landed on Yva Yoga, however, I returned to Zoom with the enthusiasm of a fresh convert..."
"I always wanted to start my Yoga practice, and am very happy to have found YvaYoga ! Thank you for 5+ years practicing with you all, it has changed my life."
"Working remotely taught me how to use Zoom. Once I learned that YvaYoga had remote classes, I gave it a try. I set up my apartment for the beginners class. I’m 64 so it was important that I could clearly see and hear the instructor from the computer. Cassie gives clear instructions that I can follow which helps me create a sacred space and time for mind/body connection. I have enjoyed in-person classes at YvaYoga for about 2yrs. and continue to learn and enjoy classes on Zoom."
"I loved the mental, physical, and emotional recharge and community connection that I got from Yva Yoga when she held classes in person, and that has certainly translated to the virtual classes which are prepared with such care by the instructors. Looming forward to when the location opens again, but am so glad to have virtual Yva Yoga to get me through the pandemic!"
"Yva is so welcoming and wonderful. Highly recommended."
"Love it! Yva and Adam offer a great and knowledgeable workout. It is hard but manageable, I’m sore afterwards but it means I worked hard!"
"I really enjoyed Cassie's class. I appreciate that she provides a playlist but instructs in silence. Her voice is clear and easy to follow and she has a beautifully calm but energetic vibe. Just the pace I was looking for in a morning class. I took the Thursday 10am class and hope to check out some of her others as well."
" Yva Yoga Studio is such a gift. I have been attending for several years now and I hope to keep them in my life for as long as I am in the hood, and beyond, because the virtual sessions means I can join them from anywhere. Every instructor I have experienced over the years always give their very best, they all have different styles and all have something in common: they care for what they do and hold no judgment, no matter what is your level in the practice. Yva Yoga is a welcoming place, affordable, professional and caring. I feel really lucky that I found Yva, and Paula, and really the entire team."
"So thrilled that Yva Yoga has reopened for both in person and virtual classes! Yva Yoga is what Brooklyn and the world need at this moment: Kindness, compassion, community, and expert, creative teaching that nurtures the mind, body and spirit of yogis at any level of experience. Yva and her teachers' approach supports students in weathering these troubled times with strength, grace, and resilience. The studio is housed in a gorgeous 19th century space with elegant architectural details, warm wood flooring and high ceilings. The beauty of the space enhances a transcendent yoga experience even further. Thank you Yva! Your Restorative Vinyasa class this evening was a balm to my weary spirit.."
" Yva Yoga is one of my favorite neighborhood studios. Set in a gorgeous historic church, YVA’s classes are inclusive (beginners, advanced, all ages, genders, & sometimes bilingual in Spanish). There is a calm, non-competitive energy and no 2 classes are alike. I always love taking classes here & am so glad she’s reopened the studio for small, in person classes!"
"I found Yva Yoga through a family member who teaches there. Though I live in Boston, I’m able to join the virtual classes which work out perfectly with my schedule. I had been missing my yoga practice since the beginning of the pandemic, and what a wonderful homecoming this has been! The small class sizes mixed with the perfect pace of the classes and variation of styles has been truly motivating and fun! Special shout-out to Cassie who is fantastic. Thank you for helping me feel like myself again through movement!"
" I enjoy Yva Yoga's Yin Yoga class. It has flow and then rest. Perfect to release and unwind from the day."
"A wonderful online class . Great instruction and pace of the yoga . I was thrilled to be part of this community and with online I can continue even thought I am in Virginia."
" Yva Yoga is my favorite studio in Bedstuy-Clinton Hill area. Very friendly, clean & nice environment.
Its been two weeks I've been attending classes and hope to keep it as long as possible."
"I just completed my first class in person at YvaYoga, and it was fantastic. I took the barre class and I loved how it was challenging but not too difficult. I felt like I was getting a good workout but everything was manageable. The instructor was super clear and helpful and kind. Also I appreciate the smaller class size of only four people currently. There were also lots of health and safety measures including a temperature check, disinfecting stations before and after use, and social distancing with masks. I'll definitely be going back. I almost didn't want to write a review because I feel like it's my hidden gem! The studio's building is attached to a church, and the inside is so gorgeous with old fireplaces and molding, like a classic brownstone. Definitely a relaxing place to work out! Thank you for the amazing class! I'll definitely be back."
"Today was my first time attending a YvaYoga outdoor yoga class with the lovely instructor Paula. She was very patient, she gave us simple instructions to follow and had such good energy. It was such an amazing experience with the sun shining down on us ,the spring breeze hitting us while releasing stress and negative energy. I definitely would recommend!! Thank you Paula and YvaYoga for hosting this much needed community yoga in my beautiful neighborhood."
" Easily one of the best classes I've ever taken. What a fantastic instructor! I am an older client. At age 63, I can easily follow and do these moves. And now I feel so much better!"
