Traditional Hot Teacher Training

Traditional Hot Yoga Teacher Training

"It's quickly become my favorite studio! Great variety of classes, I really love the instructors, the whole place is beautiful, clean and calming. Very grateful to have found YBD"

- Cliff R

"My first two classes have been great! Sculpt was killer with just the right amount of yoga thrown in. Vinyasa was perfect. The instructors are spot on!"

- Heather R

"This place is beyond fabulous. Great instructors, clean studios, and a friendly environment. I had never taken a yoga class before in my life, so I was a tad anxious to try it. After being welcomed and told that I could go at my own pace, I felt a bit more comfortable. After taking the first class, I was hooked. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be and the instructor was willing to answer any questions I had without making me feel like I was asking silly questions."
