Big Bend Yoga CenterOur first center opened in 1994 in a tiny house in Maplewood to provide a serene and sacred space for students as dedicated to practicing yoga as the four teachers/partners were to teaching. In 1997, the Center moved to a spacious converted garage in Webster with a padded floor, quality props, and a garage door that elevates to let the outside in. Visit Big Bend Yoga today, and find a class that suits your needs or make an appointment with one of our certified massage therapists.

I just wanted to tell you how much I love Mike’s class in the mornings. It is so great to be back at BBC regularly. I am always amazed — yet again — at the quality of the instruction and the feel of the place. I have never been to a yoga class that didn’t do me some good. But what happens at BBC is really special.
Thank you so much to Kitty and Lyn!
