About Leavenworth Yoga Co-op
We are a community-minded, love-filled yoga studio that embraces your freedom, your growth and your joy.
Located in the heart of downtown Leavenworth, KS, Leavenworth Yoga Co-op is devoted to enhancing the lives of all. We do this by offering a beautiful historic studio space for classes, workshops, massage therapy, teacher training, private lessons, or other wellness activities.
We believe in the necessity of a flexible wellness studio that will meet you wherever you are in your practice. That is why we have never required long-term contracts to practice with us, and we never will.
The studio is designed with everyone in mind. We want to break down the barriers, strip away any preconceived notions about yoga, and create a safe and solid practice for everyone. The LYC is truly for every shape, every size, every age, and every person – a non-judgmental space for all.
Our teachers and wellness practitioners are our greatest strength. We have specifically welcomed and partnered with instructors and massage therapists who are positive, attentive, available, and experts in their field. Each one of them brings something unique and powerful to the studio. We are a cooperative business. LYC gives instructors the platform to create their own programs, teach what they love, share their authentic voice, and do all of this without the restrictions of a studio’s format or dogma.
It doesn’t matter where you are in life or how your body is feeling, we are here to serve you. Join us as you move your body, breathe mindfully, and open yourself to unlimited possibilities within a community focused on enhancing life through the practice yoga.
A note of thanks
The LYC recently turned seven years old as of this June. Seven years is a testament to our small-but-mighty community. I’m inspired by everyone who walks through our doors. In the three years I’ve been the Co-op’s business owner, I’ve learned so much and every person that is part of the LYC has helped me to personally grow. I’m usually taking care of the business operations outside of the class schedule but am occasionally lucky enough to see our yogis walking down the sidewalk carrying their yoga mats to come through our doors and feed their souls. I am always overwhelmed with gratitude when I look back at the wisdom of our studio’s founder, the students and teachers that built the loving community we all enjoy today, and journey that led me here. Thank you.
I’m proud to say that we’ve stayed true to our core tenants and values that we started with back in 2010. In short, our philosophy can be distilled to this: Wellness is a practice, a journey. It is not meant to be perfected and it is not a competition. The reasons we come to our mat differ for us all. This is your space and your time and we are here to guide and support you.
If you haven’t been in, I know how hard it is to take those first steps through the door, especially if you are brand new to yoga, tai chi, meditation, or any of the other classes we offer. Intimidation has no place in this yoga studio and I hope you will come and see for yourself. Our clients are truly the best and they make LYC such a special place to be.
If there is every anything that I can do to make the LYC better for you, please let me know.
Deepest gratitude to you all and thanks for your support,
