About Storrs Yoga Center


Yoga can be a little intimidating at first thought. You may not know what to expect or perhaps you doubt your flexibility. We understand what that is like, because we here at SYC were in your shoes at one time, too!


Yoga is an on going practice, and the most important thing you need is an open mind. Everyone is welcome here. We have hot classes if you are familiar with heated yoga and like to sweat, gentle classes designed to relax your mind and stretch your body, and all levels classes to encompass almost everyone. However, we encourage you to try anything, even if it is new to you, as our teachers are certified and trained to offer modifications and adjustments. 



ALL of our Yoga Instructors are certified through Yoga Alliance. This means that each once of us has had a minimum of 200 hours of yoga training instruction, with some of us continuing our study beyond the required minimum.  

Why is this important? One of our main philosophies at SYC is that our studio space is a place where you can come to explore your own personal boundaries. At the same time, we want you to do that safely. Yoga Alliance is an association that promotes standards for yoga training and practice. Our training includes yoga techniques, teaching methodology, yoga philosophy and ethics, and anatomy a physiology. When you practice yoga, you feel the posture in your body, while the instructor sees it. A trained instructor can assist you in finding a balance in the pose, help to deepen a pose and also prevent a potential injury.
