We are passionate about growing the yoga community in Tucson, and we can’t wait to welcome you to your mat in our yoga studio!

Get to Know Your Tucson Yoga Studio

We strive to do more than just yoga at Yoga Pod Tucson. We are committed to making you stronger, more flexible, and challenging you in your practice. However, our number one intention is to help you make a commitment to being happy. We do this with our classes, which will help you meet your fitness goals. Welcome to a community of yogis who practice at all different levels and are welcoming of everyone.

At Yoga Pod Tucson, we strive to live by Breath. Strength. Sweat. By setting these intentions at the beginning of your practice, you’ll flow your breath to your movement, commit to your strength, and purify your mind and body. We strive to lead our practice with three intentions: stress management, flexibility, and healthy living. By focusing on these three intentions in each of our yoga classes, you’ll be able to feel more comfortable in your practice and make it (and you) stronger.

Our Tucson location welcomes any type of yogi who wants to create a practice that will leave them feeling rejuvenated and healthy. From the novice to the advanced yogi, you’ll find a class for every type of practice. Yoga Pod Tucson is more than a yoga studio; we are a community of individuals who want to strengthen the body and the mind through our practice.

The Classes at Yoga Pod Tucson

We believe in a comprehensive yoga practice, incorporating traditional yoga and strength-building exercises. Each of the classes we offer is different, yet they each provide a challenge to help you consistently advance your yoga practice. Whether you’re wanting to relax and unwind after a stressful day or you’re wanting to increase your flexibility and build muscle strength, we have a yoga class that offers what you’re looking for. Take a look at our class descriptions to learn more and sign up for one today!

podBASICS: Are you new to yoga? Are you searching for “yoga for beginners”? Do you feel a little lost when you enter a yoga studio? As a novice to yoga, you’ll want to start from the ground up when it comes to your practice. This means that sometimes you’ll need to learn to walk before you can run and that’s exactly what podBASICS is to your practice. This yoga class will help you understand the fundamental basics of yoga. We will explore a slower paced class by building a solid foundation, proper alignment, and a knowledge of postures. Each class will be different, but it will be centered around the sequences as well as the specific postures that will help propel you toward podFLOW classes.


podFLOW and podFLOW-HOT: podFLOW  is an excellent way to really cement your practice and take what you learned in podBASICS and apply it to more difficult challenges. This dynamic, challenging, and enjoyable class will help to progress your practice to something you feel more comfortable with. In addition, the heated version of this class is set to 95 degrees with 40% humidity. The yoga instructors who teach the podFLOW classes will bring a little more of a creative element and will make the sequence a little more diversified.


podSHIVA 90:


podShiva, the dance of bliss, is a 90 minute silent instructional class set to a beautiful playlist of music. It is a set series, made up of primarily Ghosh tradition inspired postures and vinyasa flow, and is designed to celebrate the light and joys of daily life.

podHOT: If you’d like to do some detoxifying, then podHOT is the right class to sign up to take. podHOT is a great class because of the strength you’ll build and the balance that you implement in your practice. This hatha yoga class also helps with flexibility. Due to the heat in the room, which is about 105 degrees with 60% humidity, you’ll notice that your body reacts a lot differently than it normally would in cooler temperatures.


podFIT: If you’re looking for a fun and challenging fitness-based class, then podFIT is the right one for you. podFIT is done to high-energy and fun music that will keep you moving during the entire class. It is a full-body focused class that is very active. It will engage your core and work all of your major muscle groups to strengthen your body and increase stability. The class will begin with a warm-up and will end with some gentle stretching and a cool down.


Sweat.Heat.Beatz.: This is a yoga class set to decidedly unyogic music. Anything goes in this class playlist. We flow hard, pump the beats, and have fun! If you thought yoga was not for you, then this class will prove you wrong. Come in and practice according to your own skill level. Rock those more challenging poses, or just kick back, modify, and enjoy the flow of your practice. We pump the heat and the music and scale back on the cues. Make Sweat, Heat, & Beatz your new Happy Hour! It’s all your favorite yoga exercises and yoga poses — set to your favorite music.


YINyoga: Yin yoga is a slower pace of yoga that is centered around holding the positions for longer than you normally would. While it sounds a little difficult, this type of restorative yoga puts an emphasis on the connective tissue in the body as well as increasing the circulation in your body through your joints. It will also improve your flexibility and bring more yoga meditation to your practice.

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

podBASICS: Are you new to yoga? Do you feel a little lost when you enter a yoga studio? As a novice to yoga, you’ll want to start from the ground up when it comes to your practice. This means that sometimes you’ll need to learn to walk before you can run and that’s exactly what podBASICS is to your practice. This class will help you understand the fundamental basics of yoga. We will explore a slower paced class by building a solid foundation, alignment, and a knowledge of postures. Each class will be different, but it will be centered around the sequences as well as specific postures that will help propel you toward podFLOW 1 and 2.


 

 


podFLOW 1:
 After you feel more comfortable in podBASICS, you’ll want to move up to podFLOW 1. podFLOW 1 builds on the yoga practice that you started to create in podBASICS. This class is centered around the traditional vinyasa yoga. You will learn how to synchronize your movement to your breath while tranquil music plays during the class. This class can be a physical challenge for some, which makes it a great class for any type of yogi to take. If you want to go back to basics and focus on building on simpler poses, then this class will provide you with a sequence that will leave you feeling in tune with your body.


 

podFLOW 2: Once you’ve moved on from podFLOW 1, you’ll want to take our level 2 class. podFLOW 2 is an excellent way to really cement your practice and take what you learned in podBASICS and podFLOW 1 and apply it to more difficult challenges. This dynamic, challenging, and enjoyable class will help to progress your practice to something you feel more comfortable with. In addition, this class is heated at 95 degrees with 40 percent humidity. The teachers who teach the podFLOW 2 classes will bring a little more of a creative element and will make the sequence a little more diversified.


 

 

 

 

YIN yoga may not be something you’re very familiar with because not all yoga studios incorporate it into the schedule. Yin yoga is a slower pace of yoga that is centered around holding the positions for longer than you’d normally hold it. While it sounds a little difficult, this type of yoga puts an emphasis on the connective tissue in the body as well as increasing the circulation in your body through your joints. It will also improve your flexibility and takes a more meditative approach to your practice.


 

 

Sweat.Heat.Beatz. is a yoga class set to decidedly unyogic music. Anything goes in this class playlist. We flow hard, pump the beats, and have fun! If you thought yoga was not for you, this class will prove you wrong. Come in and practice according to your own skill level. Rock those more challenging poses, or just kick back, modify and enjoy the flow of your practice. We pump the heat and the music and scale back on the cues. Make Sweat, Heat, & Beatz your new Happy Hour!


 

 

podHOT: If you’d like to do some detoxifying, then podHOT is the right class to sign up to take. podHOT is a great class because of the strength you’ll build and the balance that you implement in your practice. This class also help with flexibility. Due to the heat in the room, which is about 105 degrees with 60 percent humidity, you’ll notice that your body reacts a lot differently than it normally would in cooler temperatures.


 

 

podFIT: If you’re looking for a fun and a difficult fitness-based class, then podFIT is the right regimen for you. podFIT is done to high-energy and fun music that will keep you moving during the entire class. It is a full body focused class that is very active. It will engage your core and work all of your major muscle groups to strengthen your body and increase stability. If you want some cardio in your workout, then podFIT will focus on that as well as resistance training and body weight. The class will begin with a warm up and the end of the class will have gentle stretching and a cool down.

The Advantages Of A Regular Yoga Practice

Yoga isn’t just about relaxing your mind after a stressful day or beginning your morning off right with an energizing sequence. Yoga has many advantages, especially when you participate in it regularly. Not only will you tone your muscles and bring peace of mind to quiet the daily stresses in your life, it can also help with weight loss, breathing better, increased flexibility, and more.

In addition, if you’re new to yoga, practice will help you perfect your poses. If you go to one class and you feel like you’re not getting that much out of it for fitness, then don’t give up! Continue going because you’re not going to see changes in just a few classes. Getting fit and seeing positive changes takes time.

Yoga will also help to improve your overall posture. Sitting at a desk all day can damage your posture or even standing for long hours can cause discomfort. By participating in yoga regularly, you’ll loosen up your shoulders and your neck. It will also help to align and straighten your body, so you don’t feel so tight and uncomfortable while sitting or standing all day.

What Yoga Can Do For Your Body

A regular yoga practice in your life will do a lot for your body, spirit, and mind. Overall, it will help to keep sicknesses away, enhance your health, and it will heal any aches and pains through your body. It also helps with motivation because you’re holding poses for several breathes and pushing yourself to your most challenging point both physically and mentally.

What’s neat about yoga is that it transpires into your personal life as well. When you have a particularly difficult work assignment or something is going on in your personal life, you can remind yourself that yoga will help to keep you centered and you can get through those difficult moments because you’ve gotten through those difficult poses.

What Yoga Can Do For Your Mind

Yoga can affect the mind by helping with anxiety and depression. Taking care of your mental health is very important. If you don’t address the stress in your life or the general dissatisfaction, then you could begin to see physical effects on your health such as a lowered immune system or stomachaches. Yoga is a great way to help stabilize your anxiety and depression. Yoga will improve the overall mental health as well as your psychological well-being. When those negative feelings or overthinking begins to rear its head, yoga can help to set aside those unwanted feelings and focus on more positive attributes.

What Yoga Can Do For Your Spirit

When it comes to the spirit, yoga can improve moods, find inner peace, and allow us to cope with the hardships in a positive way. Life is hard. There’s no doubt about it, but when you have a means to cope with your most difficult moments, then you’ll feel much more calm for whatever life throws at you. Learning to cope with hardships by staying calm and remembering to enjoy the present moment will help you to find an inner peace that will help your spirit.
