“My first experience with Yoga was in a large studio where the instructor was not able to give individual instruction, and I was unsure if I was practicing correctly. I tried another studio, but was disappointed again. After those experiences, I lost interest in Yoga — until I found Sound Yoga 9 years ago! What an amazing difference. Sound Yoga’s atmosphere is warm and welcoming to students of all abilities. The studio is small and offers a comfortable, intimate space in which to practice. The class sizes are limited, allowing the instructors to provide individual attention to each student to ensure they are practicing Yoga correctly and benefiting from the practice. Sound Yoga offers a variety of classes and instruction style, so that students can accommodate their daily schedules and learn from different instructors. I always come away from class feeling uplifted and focused — what a great way to start the day!”

“So glad that you were still here when I came home to West Seattle after 10 years. Still as wonderful, as when I first discovered your studio in 2005, after my cancer surgery…and fell in love with Yoga.

More so today, since now I need additional accommodations (with aging) to keep Yoga in my life. Thanks to your Gentle Yoga Classes, seniors as well as folks with temporary injuries can continue to stay active, mobile and safe. Fully participating weekly in Yoga without fear of injury or even strain. I am so grateful!”
