Yoga is particularly appealing for people who use suspension trainers.
The commonalities between both of these practices should come as no surprise.
Yoga can give you the opportunity to:
- Workout inside or outside
- Stretch and reduce injuries
- Improve athletic performance.
However, unlike Suspension Training – Yoga is an ancient practice with a history extending back thousands of years from villages in India.
Yoga can help achieve a positive view on life and create inner peace and serenity.
There are many places to start Yoga, but we wanted to note a few places you should visit before you finish.
Here is our list of the of 8 Yoga Studios that should be on your bucket list.

Peace through Yoga has become a vibrant center for personal growth and exploration. The teachers at Peace through Yoga are able to guide students who seek peace with excellent tuition from credentialed teachers towards real life goals.
The owner, Mindi, initially used Yoga to improve her sports performance. Overtime she realized the full potential of yoga and became committed to using yoga to promoting self-acceptance.
This is a studio that focuses just as much on the mental aspects of yoga as the physical elements.
Yobaba uses yoga as on of a variety of relaxation and meditation methods in their retreats. They also have several retreat spots available for this year. We would definitely consider buying a flight.
The retreat is located in Chalabre, a medieval village in the foothills of the mediterranean Pyrenees in the very south of France. This is a simply stunning region with amazing views and an extraordinary history.
Yobaba is run by Gertrud who is a retired international fencing athlete with skills extending from massage therapy to a mindfulness practice called Embodied Meditation, which she teaches herself. The practice incorporates use of Ujjayi breath, mindful movement, and uses sound and visualisations to facilitate a deep state of meditation and awareness of inner space.

They also offer a Friday Night Happy Yoga for $5. So if you are in Louisville, makes sure you don’t miss them.
Formentera Yoga is on a beautiful island 11 miles south of Ibiza. This is a laid back studio which can provide you the yoga retreat you may be after. Formentera is a place that is particularly good for those who are looking for a boost in nutrition and building up their energy.
