Chicago’s best Hatha yoga studio
Big Shoulders Yoga (BSY) is a community of yoga instructors offering Hatha based classes in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood. Classes at BSY each have a theme (backbends, hip openers, twists, etc.) and are designed to help students reach a peak pose by appropriately stretching and warming up the body. We encourage our students to both listen to their body—taking breaks when needed—and also to experiment and be playful with their practice! Our classes tend to have a “workshop” feeling because teachers take time to breakdown more advanced poses, and students are given time to practice the peak poses multiple times during class. Our teachers offer verbal cues, modifications, and hands-on adjustments throughout class to help students get the most out of their practice.
