Body Nourishing, Soul Satisfying, Sanity Supporting Yoga

"Classes are taught by insightful, talented, and bio-mechanically astute teachers providing the perfect balance of physical intensity, intellectual inquiry, and spiritual nourishment." Student Laura J

Welcome to Seattle Yoga Arts!

You are worth caring for. 

We offer good old-fashioned yoga in a thriving community of dedicated faculty and practitioners. Our yoga is an alignment based, heart infused practice that is body nourishing, soul satisfying and sanity supporting.  Our classes flow, but not too fast. The room is warm, but not too hot. We emphasize alignment, but not without losing the flow. Just right!

Our methodology and offerings are time tested, guided by Denise Benitez, who founded the studio in 1990.  Under the guidance of our skilled teachers, find space and strength that you didn’t know you had using alignment principles that release tension, create strength, and allow freedom of expression.

We know yoga doesn’t contain everything, so we are also dedicated to the study of innovative and effective biomechanics and somatic research and inquiry into meditation and consciousness streams from every tradition.

Everyone is welcome here!
