OM My God!! – I guess having to pay for Montague Street rents, an absentee owner, a studio manager and several front desk employees leaves little revenue to pay the actual yoga instructors.
As a result, many classes are taught by rather inexperienced teachers, similar to the ones typically found at fitness clubs.
Given the small studio space, the musty staircase one needs to climb to get there, and the less then welcoming staff, popping a yoga CD into your computer seems like the better (and way cheaper) option.
Nice Studio, Friendly Staff, Good Neighbourhood – This studio was very nice. The front desk staff are friendly and welcoming. The women's dressing room is spacious. I enjoyed the instructors at this studio. The neighbourhood is great too - you're right downtown in Brooklyn! Fun!
Beautiful studio, Beautiful teachers – Wow, I have had a truly different experience from the past 2 reviewers!! I have been going to this studio since September. Before I began I had NEVER taken a vinyasa style class and had only dabbled in Hatha and Bikram. I started with basic classes and tried as many different teachers as I possibly could before settling on my favorites, but I can honestly say that each and every teacher has been supportive, humble, super educated, and has had something unique and special to offer to my practice. I now take some of the most challenging classes they provide and continue to learn and grow during every class. I can not possibly imagine who those two critics could be refering to, but please don't let them stop you from trying out this studio. I for one have found a very happy home there!!
beautiful studio but hollow heart – I'm sorry, I tried this place three times, and to put it bluntly, the teachers are unbearable.
It is so taken for granted that they are beautiful, smart, lovely, enlightened people that they forget how they come off to the rest of us. They are condescending even when you ask innocent questions. It is like they hate new people. The last time, I said No way, I'm not coming back. There is a male teacher who is unbelievably vain, and a female teacher who needs some ego reduction surgery. Note: There may be some good teachers here that I didn't have but that's a risk that I'll have to take.
I am generally critical of Bikram classes, but you know what? At least they serve the masses.
thanks but NO THANKS – Unbelievably terrible vibe from the teachers. Acceptable yoga instruction but certainly nothing great. Definitely not worth it. Practice at home.
My experience in three words:
Rude. Arrogant. Competent.
Great Yoga Studio in Bklyn or anywhere – Being a guy I am always a little apprehensive about new yoga studios. However this place was very welcoming . I first called the place on Saturday to get a better feel of the studio and left a message. I received a call back the next day where this very friendly and funny person help put my feelings at ease. She understood where I was coming for as a Guy and my concerns and assured me that the place was friendly. When I arrived everyone was out going - the owner came of and introduced herself and talked about the different classes. The instructed was very helpful and the class was challenging. A definite return
Yoga People in Brooklyn Heights – In the three years that I have had a yoga practice Yoga People has been the nicest and most enjoyable studio for me to visit regularly.
The studio has wonderful instructors and the class size is small enough that you will get personal attention. The studio offers a great selection of yoga classes from beginner classes to advanced levels. Yoga People also has a good schedule of classes to take both during the day and at night.
Overall I would hole-heartedly recommend Yoga People to anyone interested in either starting to learn about Yoga or for individuals continuing in their current practice. The Brooklyn Heights studio is beautiful and the relaxed atmosphere is a perfect place to take classes and meet other nice people.
The friendly owner is more than happy to help in anyway she can in fitting your yoga interests to classes that are available. Yoga People will make your yoga practice stress-free while making it a personal experience.
Best studio in Brooklyn! – Yoga People is an amazing studio! Their new space is intimate without feeling crowded, with huge windows that let in tons of natural light and gorgeous wooden floors. THeire mom-and-baby classes are terrific, and their prenatal teachers are incredible. In fact, all the insturctors are wonderful, tremendously supportive and encouraging despite your skill level. It's the best studio I've been to in Brooklyn!
Great studio! – I love this studio. Warm, welcoming, with a beautiful room. I have been so impressed with every instructor here--high caliber across the board! I am so happy to have found a wonderful yoga studio in Brooklyn.
Best Place to Catch Your Breath! – I just moved to Brooklyn and am so relieved to have found a studio I love just as much as my studio back home! The studio at Yoga People is beautiful with high ceilings and big windows, and I love that they let me use their mats for free so I don't have to haul my own with me. I took a particularly wonderful Jivamukti class with Jen, and have yet to take a class from someone I did not like. Everyone I've encountered there has been lovely, staff and other students alike. Yoga People has quickly become a part of my routine, my new home away from home!
