Heartspace Yoga & Healing Arts

Welcome to Heartspace!

Heartspace is a community-oriented studio that offers yoga and healing arts from a range of traditions.  Located in the Capital Region, we have two studios near Washington Park in Albany and on Monument Square in downtown Troy.  We seek to provide a safe, supportive and tranquil setting with excellent instruction to help improve overall health, reduce stress, and invite a peaceful and calm mind through the practice of yoga. We offer instruction for all levels from beginners to advanced with daily drop-in yoga and pilates classes, workshops, special events, yoga teacher training, and several community classes per week, which are offered by donation.

with gratitude,

Elizabeth and Andrew,  Heartspace Owners and Managers
