    The AYR difference

    The AYR difference

    We’re a school, not a gym, and the only Yoga school in Chicago to teach the Ashtanga method exclusively. If you’re seeking fitness, you’ll find it here — but you won’t find weights. Or music. Or super-heated rooms. With nothing more than you and your breath, our mission is nothing less than to dramatically and permanently improve your quality of experience in your own body and mind. Other studios expect you to fit into a cookie-cutter class. We teach directly to you and your needs.

    Yours Truly

    We're avid students of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, anatomy, biomechanics, and philosophy, and we're always learning. We're serious. Now we're at your service.
