St. Pete’s Center for Transformative Yoga, Meditation, and Mindfulness Practices

At St. Petersburg Yoga we believe that mindfulness practices including Yoga and Meditation have the power to create profound positive transformation in our body, mind, and life. It’s our passion to bring uncompromising, authentic instruction to the community; helping our students learn how to use these practices as tools for creating balance and well-being in their own lives.

Trusted for 30 Years

The studio was founded over 30 years ago by Chris Acosta, and has grown from a one-instructor studio to one of the area’s most trusted centers for Yoga & Wellness. Our center offers over 70 group classes each week as well as weekly Mind-Body-Life Workshops on topics ranging from Back Pain to Anxiety. We also provide Private Yoga Sessions, and run 200 & 500 Hour Teacher Training programs. All instructors at the studio are highly trained and certified with the Yoga Alliance.

A Holistic Approach to Wellness

Though Yoga today is often misunderstood as a strictly physical enterprise, Yoga was originally intended to be a system of bringing balance to the whole human being – not limited to the body. In addition to our many physical based classes, you’ll find Weekly Workshops that empower students to explore topics that help us address pain and cultivate wellness in our minds and lives off the mat. Yoga & Meditation encompass powerful tools for the body, but also for the challenges that arise in the mind and life; and you’ll find many opportunities to explore these at St. Petersburg Yoga.

Addressing Individual Needs

Our instructors are trained in many different styles of Yoga, from Hatha to Ashtanga, but our studio is much less concerned with the particular “style” of Yoga as we are with addressing the individual needs of the person in front of us. Our studio specializes in helping students discover what the best practices are for their unique body/mind, because we know that Yoga is not one-size-fits-all. This is something we see missing from much of the way modern Yoga is taught, and find that without this important consideration, seemingly helpful practices in Yoga can actually be harmful and imbalancing.  It’s our aim to use this understanding to help our students get the most out of Yoga, while avoiding the risks!
