We believe that we are a diverse community, all coming together in a place that is so much more than just a studio or gym, for most it’s a sanctuary, that challenges, that laughs, that pushes us to adapt and improve.
Becuase you have no idea how good you are supposed to feel, in your body and in your life and a dedicated practice to this class can light the way. Things just get better, the more you practce, the more things shift, as if it’s magic.
Yin is wonderful! In contrast to the more “yang”, heated practises, Yin gives you an opportunity to slow down and completely release all the tension you’ve been carrying around. Done mostly on the floor, we hold postures from 3-5 minutes, with a focus on sinking into the body, creating space, lengthening the ligaments and the fascia. Soft music, guided breathing. The perfect stress-relieving and meditative experience!
Yes! Your body becomes more resilient. You will build strength, endurance and at the same time burn fat to create lean muscle mass.
Come Once a week, it’s a stretch
Come twice a week, it’s a workout
Come three times a week, things start to shift
Come four times a week, shit gets weird
Come five times a week, magic happens.
How often you practice dictates the time needed to achieve your desired benefits. The health benefits achieved through a committed practice are similar to compounding interest. For example, the more you save your money in the bank it begins to collect interest and then that interest begins to collect more interest, see what we mean there. The more you practice your benefits start to compound and build off each other. The question is not will you achieve your desired results, it’s how long will it take. Simply put, the more you come the less time it takes.
All you need to bring is appropriate yoga clothes and a water bottle. That’s it!
Take your time to acclimate yourself and make sure you are well hydrated. You may find that it takes you a few classes to adjust to the heat and humidity in the room. If you gave it your best shot, don’t worry – we also have non-heated classes! Join us for Yin.
Nope! Everyone and anyone can benefit from this yoga. If you are looking for increased flexibility and fitness you will find it in the yoga. No previous experience necessary.
“If you don’t make time for your wellness, you will be forced to make time for your illness.”
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
You can’t take care of those you love if you don’t take care of yourself.
You have no idea how good you are supposed to feel. Don’t accept, pain, physical, mental or otherwise as a life sentence. There is always a path to healing. We will help you find it.
Always consult your physician, but most women can practice 26/2 hot yoga when pregnant. A regular 26/2 hot yoga practice can make your pregnancy, labor, and post-partum easier than expected. Learning how to breathe in an uncomfortable position in the yoga studio can be invaluable in the labor room! In this practice, there is no impact on mother and child, and lower back pain often decreases while abdominal strength increases. If you’ve never tried Hot yoga, wait until the end of your first trimester to start. If you have a regular practice and a doctor’s approval, keep it up! There is no separate scheduled pregnancy class, but our teachers are trained to provide modifications and alternate poses for you during our beginners yoga class. We do recommend keeping your practice to 26/2 hatha yoga during this time. A great resource for you can be found here, Rajashree’s Pregnancy Yoga Guide
Maybe 😉 Coming soon.
But of course we do, we are Shangri-la! (although shower use is suspended during Phase 1 of reopening.)

We must do our best to provide openings for classes for all of our members. For the best experience for you, and for the other students, class starts on time and Jtown enforces a strict Late Arrival Policy.
You must cancel your reservation online only, we can not accept cancellations, via, text, phone, email etc.
Students will not be able to enter class once it has started.
People often ask us what plan is best for them. The first question we respond with is, “What are you looking to get out of a yoga practice?” With this answer, we can then guide you to the best place for your individual needs. If your intention is to heal pain or old injuries, lose weight, sleep better, and relieve stress, then the magic number of visits is 3-4 times per week. This puts most people on our Unlimited or Annual Plan. Occasionally someone knows that due to schedule limitations, perhaps once a week is all they can manage at this time. In this case, we recommend our Maintenance Plan or our 10 Pack.
The truth of the matter is that health, wellness, and fitness is a habit, and it only works if you commit. You will gain the most incredible life-changing benefits with regular practice. Often people dip their toes in and, over time, feel more open to practicing. However, within the first 30 days of a committed practice, you just know that this is something that will transform your life. All you have to do is step on your mat. This is why the Ultimate plan has you covered. As an added benefit, you can put it on hold or cancel it with 30 days’ notice. You feel confident knowing you have full control over your plan, schedule, and wallet.
