TruHarmony Yoga, voted Chicago’s #1 hot yoga studio in Chicago by Time Out Chicago Magazine in January 2011, is downtown Chicago’s home for hot and powerful yoga! Our River North yoga studio overlooks the city and is conveniently located near the Chicago Brown Line stop – there is plenty of street parking near the yoga studio, as well. Our 5th floor studio is heated to 95 degrees, which raises body temperature, leads to increased flexibility, and allows the body to cleanse itself of toxins, heal and purify. We offer a variety of group yoga classes seven days a week, as well as the option for private instruction. Our Chicago yoga classes are highly influenced by the Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga methodology, focusing on energetic and integrated combinations of rigorous vinyasa, pranayama, and contemporized yogic principles. This philosophy is designed to invite and guide yogis into a courageous journey into their physical and personal power. Come prepared to stretch and strengthen your body, break away from restricting physical and emotional barriers, and work up a good ‘ole fashioned sweat! TruHarmony is open to everyone, regardless of experience, flexibility, or background – we offer a viariety of beginners yoga classes.
TruHarmony Yoga began as Harmony Yoga in early 2009, where Megan Chappell, fresh from teacher training with Baron Baptiste in New York, was teaching two vinyasa flow classes a week. As a four year yogi and brand new instructor at the time, she was able to share her love for the practice with a brand new community of yogis in downtown Chicago. She instantly found adoration in both the inner and aesthetic beauty of Harmony Yoga – leading advanced and beginners yoga classes full of students eager to deepen their practice and to share their affinity for yoga while overlooking the vast skyline of the city of Chicago. But she was even more inspired by the depth and the hunger of Harmony Yoga’s community that continued to come to her Chicago yoga classes week after week. So much so, that in May of 2010, she became the best River North yoga studio ‘s owner, newly named TruHarmony Yoga. She is now living her dream of sharing the gift of yoga and teaching with an ever growing yoga community powered by a team of eleven instructors and key community partnerships, including lululemon athletica, Urban Fit Club, and Crossfit, to name just a few.
