on the downtown mall

small classes in a warm and welcoming environment


Chair Yoga - Tuesdays 11:45-1:00 

Seated stretching and modified yoga postures for students who find it difficult to get up and down on the floor, or for those who prefer a gentle approach. We will do some standing in addition to seated movements, but we will not lie down on the floor. Please note that my studio is on the second floor and there is no elevator, so students must be able to maneuver stairs.


Whether you are new to yoga, have been practicing for years, or are returning to the mat after a long hiatus, you will want to find an instructor and studio that meets your needs. We are very fortunate in Charlottesville to have an abundance of options, but that can make the decision process daunting. 

At simplyYOGA, your FIRST CLASS is FREE, which gives you an opportunity to try a class before making a commitment. New students must contact the studio before dropping into a class as space in each class is limited. If you're looking for something that is not offered at simplyYOGA, I will be happy to help guide you in another direction. 

Please feel free to contact the studio for more information.

simplyYOGA is located at the west end of the historic downtown mall, across from Main Street Arena and above the new Yearbook Mexican restaurant. The studio is three doors west of Mudhouse. Don't let the 223 W. Main Street address fool you. The downtown mall area was Main Street prior to the mid-70's when it was bricked in as a pedestrian mall.
