WHAT IS THE SOLAR YOGA CENTER OF ST. LOUIS?

The Solar Yoga Center is a non-profit, educational, non-discriminating institution established in 1970. All yoga instructors donate their time without financial compensation.

Solar Yoga Center has held Hatha yoga classes continuously since 1969.  SYC was the first yoga studio in St. Louis, Missouri, and was originally named Yoga Center of St. Louis.

From the beginning, the teachers agreed on the good karma practice to not be paid for teaching at Solar Yoga.  The charge to students for classes was kept at a minimum – enough to pay for utilities and basic building upkeep. This tradition continues today.

Over the last 49 years some of our practices changed. Classes were shortened from 2 hours to 90 minutes.  We no longer take cold showers before the calming asanas and Guided Meditation.  The classic Solar teaching practice – including beginning every class with psycho-physicals – has expanded to a number of diverse practices today.
