We opened the first Mighty Yoga studio in August 2009 in Ithaca, NY with the vision to create a welcoming, fun, and
supportive space where people can discover, explore, and expand their yoga practice. What started out as one person’s dream has turned into a wonderful community, built by our teachers, team and students. Our studio has blossomed into a haven where yoga practitioners of all levels and backgrounds can be curious, playful, and adventurous—on and off their mats.
Mighty Yoga offers an uplifting space for you to begin, maintain, or deepen your yoga practice. We blend compassion and love with fun and laughs to cultivate an environment where people discover the amazing power of yoga. We welcome people from all walks of life, tall and short, fit and flexible, or not. If you want to try yoga, but feel a little intimidated, then try Mighty Yoga!
We also believe it is important to contribute to our community. We offer donation-based workshops and classes regularly that give to local, national, and international charities. When we join together for a common, worthy cause, our community becomes that much more powerful!
We offer Power Yoga classes for all levels in the mornings, afternoons and evenings, seven days a week, so you can experience the power of Mighty Yoga on your schedule. All you need is a mat, a towel, and most importantly, your smile. This has been a wonderful journey, and we hope you’ll join us on the mat!

relaxation, inviting life energy (prana) to flow more freely through us. Music and guided imagery supports the practice. The result is increased strength, stamina, flexibility, balance, focus, and a sense of overall well-being--a total conditioning of body, mind and spirit.
