Sustainable and Green Yoga Center
The solar-powered, environmentally sustainable campus is one of the few in the country that was designed specifically for yoga from inception. Both buildings (each with two large yoga rooms) sit on a lushly landscaped campus of edible, aromatic, and native trees and plants, with the two buildings connected by a walkway. Bamboo floors and plenty of windows with southern exposure make for lovely spaces to experience our celebrated teacher trainings, classes, and workshops.
While designing the buildings, we considered both our environmental impact and the needs of a yoga studio. They are oriented on an East/West axis so there is plenty of natural light and a passive solar advantage is achieved. Day lighting is used throughout to reduce the need for electric lights and we placed the windows high in the yoga rooms so there would be plenty of room for working at the wall.
