Located on the third floor of an 1890's brick warehouse, Global Breath Studio offers a unique urban chic environment. Large windows allow the light to illuminate the beautiful pine floors, and the various wood, glass, metal and concrete textures of the space.

Meticulously renovated by Bart, the studio incorporates many reclaimed and sustainable materials. Movable birch walls allow multiple configurations for the space, creating a large yoga studio, an open kitchen, and multiple seating areas. You are invited to hang around before, during or after class to have some coffee or tea, to work on your laptop (there is free WiFi), or to enjoy one of our many books.

Our small shop offers bracelets, jewelry and purses made by the women & men of Matopeni, eco-friendly yoga mats and props, handmade soaps, yoga clothing designed and created by local couturier Mindy Reaves, Burt's Bees gift sets, and pottery by Nina Be. Visit our merch page to order our products on-line. 

Please go to our contact page for more information about location & parking.
