ABOUT motion center yoga + OUR MISSION
We are a collective of independent instructors, teaching in a beautiful, renovated mill, 84 Fountain Street, minutes from the East Side of Providence. While our styles vary, we all offer skilled, individualized instruction that honors the deeper aspects of yoga. Classes are dynamic, inspiring, deeply relaxing, and centering. We offer a wide range of classes including Iyengar Yoga, Kundalini, Anusara, Slow Flow, Hatha Yoga, Kids and Family Yoga. Our Intro to Yoga and Beginner Yoga will give you a firm foundation for any style you may choose to practice. We are currently offering the only ongoing Feldenkrais class (Awareness Through Movement) in RI. As a collective, each yoga teacher is "running her own business" and sharing in the upkeep of the studio. This model allows for both affordable classes as well as gives the teachers the opportunity to earn a living wage. It fosters learning and community by honoring both the student and teacher.
WE are in our new space!
Our new space is 84 Fountain St, Pawtucket, right off Exit 29. Its a storefront so you can enter from Fountain Street. Lots of street Parking and 2 lots.
We will be expanding our offerings so check back for more classes and workshops.
