“peaceful place to practice”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

The physical place is lovely, wood floors, carved door, shiva and ganesha. But what makes it truly wonderful is the energy and the teachers. Ellen leads a vinyasa calss that is as powerful as you want it to be. She encourages strength and focus but also rest if that is what you need.
Michael is knowledgeable of the traditional ashtanga practice and blends in his soft instructions with a gentle and personal touch. He gave me several careful and spot on adjustments.
Everyone from the girls at reception to the yogis who came to practice were happy.
There are mats and towels to rent, bathrooms and showers to use and treats to eat.
I will return here again and again.
Om shanti

“Amazing Yoga”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Yogaloft is a premier yoga studio that is known throughout the world thanks to its lead Yogi, Michael Gannon. The classes are respectful, yet demanding. It is a great place to begin -- and a super place to grow -- your yoga practice.
