The Movement Center’s yoga studio offers classes to suit a broad range of levels and interests. The quality of the program has been recognized in the Portland community, and the Movement Center yoga studio has won best of  awards from CitySearch as well as Natural Awakenings readers.

Our facility is in a garden setting, with abundant natural light, and features sprung hardwood floors, which are a perfect surface for asana practice. 

The core yoga curriculum provides a deep practice where asana, breath, awareness, and meditation are equally important. Classes are geared for every kind of body, fitness level, and age. Beginners and continuing students alike can count on a deeply healing blend of breath-centric asanas that will increase strength, vitality, and connection with spirit. Careful alignment and the ability to adjust and adapt asanas keep classes safe and interesting.

The Movement Center is recognized for its comprehensive and authentic yoga studies and teacher training program. Instructors hail from a variety of backgrounds, bringing a rich and mature practice to their teaching.

The main benefit of asana practice is that you will be able to experience the movement of the energy within your body. Having experienced the energy movement within your body, you’ll understand that you no longer are a victim of whatever mental state it is that you fall into in any moment in time. You can shift your own mental state at any time simply by becoming aware of your breath. Then, that recognition, that clarity becomes the basis by which you can develop all your finer qualities.
