We offer both hot yoga and unheated yoga classes.
Our yoga classes are for all levels of students - we teach to all bodies and abilities.
The physical benefits of yoga classes are numerous - mobility, strength, flexibility, better breathing, lower blood pressure. The mental benefits are deeply important as well - stress reduction, a clear head, focused thoughts, lower anxiety. Our classes give you chance and the space to regroup, and give your mind a chance to take in just one thing at a time. It's a moment, or an hour, to be mentally still.

What is Power Yoga?
Power yoga is a term that refers to a physically and mentally challenging style of yoga. In our style of yoga, poses run together in a smooth way without halt between movements. Importantly, in our hot power yoga classes, the teacher will synchronize the class together, and match each movement to an inhale or exhale. This synchronization helps to create ease in each pose, and helps each individual's yoga practice be uplifted and held by the breath of the class around them.
The "power" in power yoga - and especially hot power yoga - does not only refer to physical demand. Power yoga asks students to find within themselves the agency to make their own choices about their movement and practice.

What our students are saying...
I highly recommend Create Power Yoga! The prices are affordable compared to other yoga studios in the area. Vinyasa is their most popular class and it is a great workout. The staff is always helpful and welcoming, especially for beginners who are hesitant to try a class.
I am a senior and have been going here since 2015. It is amazing how good you feel after class and there is no judging by the instructors or your classmates. Everyone should try at least once. You leave relaxed and limber. And in this stressful environment, you leave with a peaceful and hopeful mind.
Petra and the team of yoga instructors at CPY are warm and welcoming to all and make the new and experienced yogi's comfortable. Love the studio, it has a calming atmosphere for the body/mind practice. So happy to have found CPY!!
My favorite place in the whole wide world. Its the only place I can go and truly feel at peace. I love the new "pop-up classes" and the owner is always going above and beyond to create new adventures for their members. The staff is so super awesome and genuinely caring about your well being. I'm a big fan!
I have been taking classes at Create Power Yoga for a few weeks now and I absolutely love it. The heated classes are the perfect balance of stretch and strength. Breath is emphasized in class. I've never heard so many yogis ujjayi breathing in one place, it is beautiful. I would definitely recommend this studio to anyone looking for some heat and a challenge.
Create Power Yoga studio is a MUST for anyone with an interest in yoga. Petra and her staff are helpful, welcoming and committed to making everyone's yoga experience a great one.
I have practiced yoga in the hot studio for the past year and am thrilled with the move to Newport Ave (within walking distance). At the age of 63 with very mixed abilities, i have been warmly welcomed, encouraged, and guided. Yoga has been very beneficial to me and I am sure you could benefit, too!
I had never taken a yoga class before I tried CPY, but now I don't know why I went so long without trying. It's so relaxing it's hard to believe you're working out! The yoga instructors focus on your breathing, so you are relaxed the entire time! I'm hooked. The instructors at CPY clearly very passionate about what they are teaching and care about how everyone is doing in the class. I can't imagine going to another yoga studio. CPY is perfect for all ages and experience! You have to come check out this studio. It'll change the way you see yoga (I know it did for me).
I've practiced in a lot of different studios, and I've rarely found one as warm and welcoming as Create Power Yoga.
The owners are wonderfully nice and there's always someone who remembers you and says hello. The teachers are fantastic and really interested in creating a good experience for you. The heated studio/hot yoga is perfect for feeling like you are really getting a workout (and it's a great respite from the cold during the winter). It's takes a lot to convince me to go to the gym, but I look forward to coming to this studio to do yoga a few times a week! Also, I would highly recommend this place to someone who is less comfortable with their skill level- there is a great mix of people and the teachers are great about helping (but not pushing too hard), so even I feel comfortable, even though my inverted-something-twisting-pose isn't exactly fitness model worthy.
