Now let’s get down to it. With so many class offerings, awesome instructors and relaxing environments – how do you choose the best studio for you? Now, it can be a daunting task and sometimes going to a new studio can be intimidating.
Luckily, we’ve done all the hard work for you (downward dog and all) and searched all of the yoga studios in and around Shadyside to bring you a list of the 5 best yoga studios.
From class offers, instructor difficulties, and package costs, we’ve got it all covered! As a disclosure, we loved all these studios so much that they are in no special order – all 5 are equally great (in their own ways) in our eyes.

Yoga Love Pittsburgh makes our top 5 list for multiple reasons.
First and foremost, the instructors at this location are always switching it up and keeping the classes fresh. They read the room at the beginning of every class to determine what the needs of each student are.
They also offer a variety of class options. So, if one day you feel like you need to be rejuvenated, there is a yoga heal class for you. But, if you’re trying to push yourself to new limits, try the yoga strong class instead! Whatever you’re looking for, they have you covered.
One of the worst parts about working on in the city is dealing with parking, am I right? The good thing about this studio is if you don’t want to pay for street parking, there is parking in walking distance! You’ll add a few more steps to your workout and save a few dollars, that’s a win-win in our book.
Another bonus is you can try this studio out for 30 days for just $30 dollars -- if that isn’t a deal then we don’t know what is! After the first month, your package prices will range from $65 to $200, with student and monthly discounts available as well.
A positive environment for yogis of all expertise levels.
