Ayurveda (आयुवेद’) is one of the oldest natural healing systems in the planet, with roots on the Indian subcontinent.

“I’ve been going to Baltimore Yoga Village for a some years now and think it is a seriously helpful place. They have a wonderful cross section of ages and abilities. I started as a newcomer and am now able to find classes that are satisfying and challenging”.
“I personally love BYV. I’ve been going there on and off for maybe 5 years now and every teacher I have experienced has been very good or excellent… The owner takes the practice of yoga, its history, the intention, and spirit behind it very honestly.”
“This is my favorite yoga studio. From the moment you step inside, whether it is the Mount Washington or Hampden location, you feel a sense of calm and peace”.
“A wonderful Sunday morning yoga class in a beautiful space! I can’t wait to go back.”

I don’t mean just competent, passable, skilled, technically proficient, and able to communicate yoga philosophy and inspiration.

It’s hard to imagine the orchestration that must go into scheduling and delivering the variety of events from meditation to yoga, Kirtan chanting, teacher training, dance medicine, special guest workshops, community potlucks, and more – that Baltimore Yoga Village offers at two locations, but somehow the staff pulls it off seamlessly.
Baltimore Yoga Village is the best yoga studio in town… Every thing offered is centered around wellness, community, and joy.
