WTF IS A YOYO? 


 

Decades ago, this disco-dancin’, big hair-wearin’, rock-singin’ action duo met under the Hollywood sign, tied the knot, made a family and lived life up, and upside down- just like a yoyo!  Leavin’ the glitter, they headed north and found too much “success” in the corporate world - a world that did not fit these nature-lovin’, globe trottin’, music-makin’ free spirits. That’s when YOGA made it’s grand entrance to their soul-searchin’ lives; bringin’ peace, love and happiness to these suit-wearin’, briefcase-slingin’ souls. 

Soon they became deep-breathin’, mat-carryin’, book-readin’ students learning from the unsung givers who showed them the way...and they felt their path unfold.  “What if?” they asked...and like a vision they knew. Off they went...100 Yoga Studios in 100 Days - from Seattle to San Diego. They chronicled their epic adventure for all their fellow zen-lovin’, bandana wearin’ brethren on their #1 yoga blog.

Sad were they when the journey came to a close, but happy to be slingin’ a heart full of inspiration from the “best of the West” teachers and from shiny, happy yogis everywhere. “Now What?” they asked on Day 101. ”Where to?”  Armed with the schoolin’ that yoga was a hell of a lot more than just a good sweat, they knew they’d bring their “most excellent” adventure to life! 

Soooo, here, in the “chosen land” of Portland, Or, they’d be openin’ their “bricks and mortar” studio and offer mind-bendin’, body stretchin’, peace providin’ yoga... to one and all.

At YoYo, our yoga family is our family — period.

So come on in, kick off your shoes, and unroll your mat. You’re home. Just the way you are.

We believe in FUN. We’re all about beer and burritos, hikin’ and recyclin’, wine-sippin’ and carb-loadin’, coffee-gulpin’ and mountain-climbin’. Our heart’s in the breakthroughs and breakdowns, the falling on our faces and getting back up again, with a whole lotta laughter in between.

Who are the folks who walk in and out of these doors, who tramp barefoot up and down those stairs, who sweat and laugh and grow together? They’re our heart and soul. They’re the reason we’re here. And they’re what keeps us truckin’.

All life is yoga, right? The way you move on the mat is the way you do your job, the way you raise your kids, the way you move through the world. If nothing else, yoga should make you take yourself a little less seriously. So let our practice lighten you up.

Our beautiful, spacious home in the heart of Portland’s historic Pearl District buzzes with laughter, conversation, and a whole lotta sweat. Walk into our living room and find a flurry of dogs and hugs amidst the glowing hellos and goodbyes. You can’t help but keep it real when you’re surrounded by a bunch of cool cats who just wanna get their butts kicked and live well while doing it. Join our one-of-a-kind community and jump into a variety of classes to match anything you’re craving.

Our top-notch teachers care about you. You’re not just a number here. You’re you — and we want you to come as you are, whether you’re a microbrew-lovin’, tattoo-sportin’ frat bro or a church-goin’, briefcase-slingin’ empty nester.

Laugh well. Live well. We’ve got your back.

Mad love.
