The Yoga Institute of Champaign-Urbana is a premiere yoga center in Illinois, recognized as a top program at home and abroad. Students can expect safe, methodical, insightful instruction in the hands of the most skilled teachers in Champaign-Urbana.

Our classes present the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. His approach develops self-awareness through precision in movement and attention to the subtleties of body, breath, and mind.

Iyengar Yoga is a tradition of practice that is readily adapted to accommodate students of all ages, body types, capacities, and medical histories. No one is too old, too stiff, too fat, or too thin—all that is required is a willingness to learn and to face your challenges, one step at a time.
