Karma Yogi Spotlight: Ali Patton ✨

Ali joined our Karma Yogi program last year and is currently a student at the University of Florida. Ali also is about to graduate from our Yin Teacher Training this coming Sunday!

We asked Ali about her yoga journey and this is what she said 😍: "I started practicing yoga on and off about four years ago, but it wasn’t until I tried out the $30 for 30 in may of 2019 that I was hooked!
After the thirty days of trying out all Yoga Pod has to offer, I knew I wanted to continue to be part of this wonderful community and deepen my practice.
I became a karma yogi in July of 2019 and still continue to serve as one!
The relationships I have made and soul searching i have accomplished the last eight months through yoga has been life-changing. I am so extremely grateful to be apart of the yoga pod team and will be forever thankful that I started my yoga journey here."

We love you Ali and are so thankful for all your hard work at the studio!

Teacher Training Graduate Spotlight: Ashley Ward 💫

Ashley recently graduated from our 200 Hour Teacher Training and is a UF medical student! She is now currently a membership consultant and a FLOW1 teacher 🤩 We asked Ashley what her favorite pose was and this is what she said: "One of my favorite balancing poses is dancer's pose. I love that it is a hip opener AND a shoulder opener. Its also great because there is always a way you can take it a step further – whether leveling through your hips more, lifting your leg higher, or breathing more deeply!"

Yoga Pod Gainesville SW

Yoga Pod is the hottest yoga studio in Gainesville! We also won the Gainesville Sun’s “best of the best” yoga studio in 2019. Come experience the benefits of yoga pod at our 1st location in Gainesville.

We believe our yoga studio is exactly what Gainesville needs right now. You may be asking yourself why three yogis from Boulder, Colorado, brought their studio to North Central Florida.

Owner Alex Jarboe shares the story about how he and the other owners decided to expand the Yoga Pod community in Gainesville.


To create a vibrant yoga community where you can transform your body, elevate your mind, and open your heart.


We redefine fitness and forge a sustainable, intentional yoga practice through breath, strength, and sweat.


Breathe First, Cultivate Discipline, Create Community, Honor Nature, Do the Right Thing.

Class Styles

Our schedule of classes includes a little something for everyone. From never stepping on a yoga mat to being an instructor-in-training, to loving the powerful flow and feeling the fitness burn, Yoga Pod has a class to suit your needs. Most of our classes are one hour, but we have some filtered into our schedule that give students some additional time on the mat or in an express format when demanded.

Beginners can start in podBASICS (less challenging), podFLOW 1, or podFIT and podHOT.



podFLOW 1 is ideal for all yogis who are ready to start their yoga journey. It is a great class that focuses on setting an intention and then working through postures and sequences that increase flexibility and build strength all while challenging you along the way.


focuses on four types of movements that occur regularly throughout our more advanced classes in podFLOW 1 or podFLOW 2. podBASICS builds the foundation with forward folds, back bends, hip openers, and twists. Through these movements, students explore alignment and breathing patterns at a slow pace. This is a great class if podFLOW 1 is too challenging or for advanced students looking to refine their practice.



podFLOW 2 is a more intermediate- or advanced-level yoga class that builds on the sequence initiated in podFLOW 1. We kick it up a notch by adding some heat, humidity, and challenge. The detoxification element of podFLOW 2 is unbeatable and the movement into flow provides a deep sense of presence.




Maybe you can’t get enough of the Florida heat and humidity, so you want to find a more direct route to sweat. We love sweat and highly encourage it during podHOT. This is another class for students of all levels and beginners. The room temperature is set to 105 degrees with 60 percent humidity! It’s hot. It’s humid. It’s yoga. It’s what we love and crave. Don’t forget your towel and water — you’ll definitely need them.


If you’re ready to switch up your routine and support your life with more fitness, you can kick up your practice a notch with a podFIT class. Engage your core and use all muscle groups as you move through cardio and bodyweight exercises mixed with resistance training. This class doesn’t involve yoga, but that’s why we like it! It mixes up your routine to energize your body, build strength, and increase core stability… three things that will help accelerate change in your body. podFIT is definitely a fitness-focused class. So if you’re ready for a more laid-back yogic atmosphere, check out the next class…


Do you have the flow, love music, and love to have fun? We love the flow, the music, and the fun in yoga, it’s what makes the movements come alive. One way we encourage students to feel the flow is through Sweat. Heat. Beatz. It’s a class that focuses more on flowing through the poses yet to decidedly “unyogic” music. Other classes help perfect alignment, but Sweat. Heat. Beatz. brings together all levels in a room where people can move to their own beat. We pump the heat and the music, take it back a notch on the cues and the verbiage, and let students zone in on their own meditative flow through the class.


Finally, students may be interested in a more relaxing class that helps increase joint mobility and improve flexibility. YIN classes offer just that for students of all levels. This class is relaxing, but the results are achieved through moderate intensity through long holds. Our teachers guide students to hold postures passively for 2-5 minutes in order to give the body time to ease into the new areas of flexibility and mobility; this gently stresses connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, and fascia). Your body will work hard, so we set the room at a comfortable 80 degrees, keep the music soft, and the lights down low.

If there’s anything you take away from these class descriptions, let it be that we LOVE beginners and provide a platform for all students, from first time to advanced!

We invite anyone and everyone to come by the studio to experience Yoga Pod. That’s the best way to see what we’re all about.
