I had spent a lot of time researching different yoga studios throughout Portland and have attended a few classes here and there. None of them had the right feel for me. I was looking for a yoga community that exuded warmth and welcome. I was also looking for a studio that had a range of ages and skill levels, with an added bonus if there were men and women participating. I found Escape to Yoga originally when I was considering signing up for ClassPass, but decided I wanted to focus on my yoga practice and try the $30 for 30 Days trial instead. I'm so glad I did. I love the space. The three instructors I've taken classes with so far, have had very different approaches and attitudes to their classes, and I've really enjoyed getting to know different styles and faces of yoga practice. I feel challenged in the classes, but also well supported and empowered to make choices that are best for my body throughout class. I also like the flexibility in schedule, with evening and weekend classes.- Whitney J.
I have taken a variety of classes with several different instructors. All of them are friendly, knowledgeable and unique in their teaching delivery of yoga practices. The studio is a warm and inviting place filled with special people. Thank you for inspiring me! - Julie N.
I like the building and the warm feeling that radiates when I walk in. I also like the diversity of the teaching staff. Everyone is a little different and offers something personal. I can choose which style of teaching I like and go to those classes. I also like that some teachers not only offer the physical part of yoga, but the spiritual as well. My past 3 years at Escape as broadened my outlook on life. - Joan R.
Escape to Yoga is my happy place. The studio is beautiful and peaceful, street parking is free and easy, and I love the variety of classes offered. Also, in my opinion, the monthly unlimited membership is a steal. I have been a member for four months and have yet to take a class with every teacher at the studio. However, all of the teachers I have taken classes with have been excellent. They each have their own style of teaching and bring something special to their classes. Escape to Yoga is just a really positive, welcoming environment. Whether you're new to yoga or have years of experience, I highly recommend checking it out! - Heidi S.
A beautiful setting upstairs with windows and hard wood floors and high ceilings and lots of space in an old building. Love the artwork of the tree. Great group of teachers each with a unique take on Yoga. Nice variety of classes to choose from depending on my mood. Oh, and there is easy free parking. - Dick W.
The instructors are all very experienced and helpful. I think anyone could feel welcome in your classes due to the kindness and attention of the instructors. Also, I appreciate the attention to detail in the decor of the studio, it's very peaceful. - Alaina W.
We appreciate the senior discount and that you have gentle yoga classes. I like classes that move slow and a hold poses. I do not like flow yoga or extreme physical challenge. I do appreciate that you provide a variety of classes for all levels! - Janie S.
I am so glad to have found Escape to Yoga! What a wonderful place to practice yoga. The facility is lovely with natural light and clean hardwood floors. There’s a great variety of classes to choose from. All the teachers are accomplished, professional, helpful and so friendly. I love how the teachers are all different and bring something of their own to each class. You can tell they really prepare in order to make sure the classes are varied and interesting. The price is so reasonable!!! Try the 30 days for $30 to get a good sample of as many classes as you want. I think you’ll find it’s just what you’ve been looking for, I certainly have. Thank you to all those at Escape to Yoga. - Gigi S.
I love the kind, welcoming, supportive and relaxing atmosphere of Escape. I love the variety of teaching styles and the class times offered. I also LOVE the shala, with its beautiful tree mural, lovely hardwood floors, and amazing natural light. I purchased the 30 day new client pass and have been to 11 classes in 9 days and am feeling totally blissed out. THANK YOU! I have been talking about the studio to many of my friends, family and coworkers and have nothing but the best things to say. I'm grateful for finding Escape and look forward to many more practices. Namaste. - Ahsamon A.
Yoga, compassion, availability, patience, affordability, beauty and comfort. - Bruce D.
I have been overly pleased with this studio and a steady yoga practice is one of the best things to happen to me physically, and mentally. Escape offers a wonderful assortment of instructors. They all bring their own styles, and there's never a dull experience. I have been struck by the intensity of Natasha's classes as they are extreme, and I sometimes choose to do a double. I am also enthralled with the spirituality each teacher brings, such as Ela's Yin Yang. - James W.
