The variety of classes and times offered, the quality of the staff and their ability and intent to adapt practice as needed for individuals in each class and the friendly, welcoming atmosphere that doesn’t put pressure on anyone to perform perfectly are just some of the reasons that I love this studio and never hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
I love the small classes. I love that all of the instructors are friendly and approachable. The entire facility is warm and friendly.
I like the fact that there is much history in the old mill building
I took the Strength, Stretch and Flow class with Liz yesterday morning. She was kind and responsive to our practice offering alignment reminders to ensure we got the most out of our practice. I am sore all over today from all the work we did yesterday! Just what my body needed.
I love the yoga teachers I have met over the past year, the ability to work at ones own pace. Breathing Time is most definitely a place for any person from someone who is a beginner to an experienced yogi!
This was my first visit to the location and I was unable to find it. I walked around the building for 10 minutes looking for signs and finally found someone who knew where the studio was. I suggest more signage near the parking lot. Then when I arrived for class (now right at the start of class time), I discovered that mats needed to be rented for $2 and had to spend more time on that transaction. Belongings were to be left out in the lobby unsecured, but I didn’t know that until someone stopped me as I was entering the class. When I entered the class, the room was packed and the instructor made a (what felt like to me) big deal about moving her mat so I had a spot and then spent 3 or 4 minutes shuffled around supplies while talking about how the class was oversold. This made me feel on the spot, uncomfortable and unwelcomed. The class was good and included some very helpful poses I had not tried before, while the wood floor was unfortunate rather hard and harsh on my back. I probably would’ve grabbed a second mat, but didn’t as they cost money to rent and I didn’t want to draw any more attention to myself than was already drawn. All in all, the location is far for me, the vibe was exclusive and it’s not the easy going friendly studio I am looking for so I tend to think I wouldn’t recommend it.
All of the teachers here are great! They teach in a way that makes yoga easy and understandable for anyone. The pace of the classes, the breakdown of the poses...it is very helpful especially for beginners!!
The yoga was very inactive. I found all the current yoga offered to be nicely meditative but I feel it is un-involving the body part of the mind and body experience.
In previous years I attended more of the "power yoga" due to my schedule but I felt there was a balance where I could choose what I needed or wanted. The current curriculum feels one sided.
However, I did recommend BTY to an older woman recently that seemed to have a negative view of yoga because they thought it was all like pilates or power yoga.
