Great studios, I could see myself getting along with the amenities that this place has, great instructors and very comfortable pads, they also have gears if you forgot to bring some.

I practiced my bikram Yoga during a couple business trips at this studio and although I enjoyed a few classes (without being screamed at): Unfortunately I encountered a couple quite mean teachers who seem to be really enjoying screaming at

I have tried several different hot yoga studios around Atlanta, and this is the very best experience by far. There is a strong impression of familiarity and intimacy without sacrificing a warm welcome to newcomers. If you know someone who already goes there, then they even have a referral program where you and your friend can actually get a free class. Even though their styles vary, I have gotten valuable prompting and direction from each of the instructors. They all seem to be paying careful attention to students as much as possible within the constraints of time and the number of students in the class. Each instructor has always offered participants modifications based on flexibility, balance, strength, and any other known limitations. Likewise, they can often tell if you are ready to push your edge just a little further and offer encouragement physically or with prompting, never forcing you beyond your point of safety. The facility is cozy and clean. The changing room and showers have never left anything to be desired, and the restrooms are impeccable. I have been attending for about 4 months and intend to remain a regular for as long as I live here. I'm 29, and had average flexibility and strength when I started with this studio. I was a 2-3x/week runner, but had to stop for way too long while saving up for a new pair of Vibram shoes. I was getting lumpy! Yoga at DY&P has sculpted my body into better shape than when I kept up with my cardio alone, plus I've gained the benefits of true unity between mind and body. It's a moving meditation.

I highly recommend trying this place out, talking with your instructor before or after about your challenges, fears, concerns, or goals and then diving in. It is WELL worth it.

Hmmmm, I started coming to this studio 3 months ago after being a regular at one of the Bikram studios mentioned below. I'll admit this studio's Bikram isn't as hardcore as a true Bikram studio but if you've truly practiced Bikram, it won't matter. You either know the yoga or you don't, the instructor shouldn't matter.

The other styles of yoga are wonderful and a great compliment to a Bikram practice. I have found the instructors to be very safety-focused and they do a great job of thoroughly demonstrating the more difficult poses prior to having the class move in to them. If I don't know a pose and they're not demonstrating, I've simply asked and they come right over.

I also found practicing at a Bikram studio was actually giving me repetitive stress injuries. Since widening my yoga style focus, the numbness I was experiencing has left. I purposefully take the Bikram classes at DYP because their instructors aren't militant about you following the instruction to a tee.

The changing room could be a big larger but oh well. I'm enjoying how friendly everyone is and how few egos I've encountered. People talk to you and there's a real community. A huge change that will keep me coming back. Plus, I'm loving the strength I'm building from the new styles I'm being exposed too. All in all yoga is a personal journey and this studio does a great job guiding you to find what's best for your body vs. what fits their 'dialogue'.

This studio offers substandard instruction and facility. The quality of hot yoga instruction is substandard compared to nearby Bikram yoga studios such as Bikram Yoga Decatur or Bikram Yoga Marietta.

Furthermore, restroom is small and dirty, and the studio is not well maintained.

On top of that, people who run the studios are crooks. I paid $150 on August 10 for unlimited one month pass, to expire on September 10, 2010(written on the receipt). On August 22, 2010(12 days later), I was told that my pass had expired and that I had not paid for the classes, LOL.

If this was not all the problems with this studio, that would be OK. However, on top of that, instructors at this studio SUCK BIG TIME and quality of the instruction is substandard, to say the least.

I lost track time of the time instructors at this studio told me that I'm able to do this or that advanced pose with ease because of natural flexibility. I happen to be a relative beginner suffering from severe back and knee injury, as well as chronic illness. I used to be super stiff before beginning yoga and is able to do advanced pose with ease due to superior yoga instruction I received elsewhere.

If I had to depend on the instructors at this studio to learn how to do advanced poses, I would suck big time, LOL!

If you want your yoga to SUCK BIG TIME unless you are naturally flexible and also be billed twice, try out this studio. Otherwise, go somewhere else.

Both the quality of instruction and condition of facility at Decatur Yoga & Pilates is third rate. On top of that, their billing process is crooked and this business deserve to be driven into bankruptcy.

My sincere hope and prayer is that Decatur Yoga & Pilates go out of business soon, driven by more ethical and well managed competitors. Namaste.

The previous reviewer obviously had a bad experience with a yoga instructor who was at Decatur Yoga and Pilates for a short time and is no longer there. The encounter happened outside of the studio.
That said, the yoga and Pilates instructors at DYP are all highly trained and hold a minimum of 200 hour certification--most have surpassed this--and continue their learning with workshops and other continuing education. Decatur Yoga and Pilates is a great place to practice, learn, and grow as a yoga and/or Pilates practitioner and as a person. The studio offers four types of Hot Yoga: Bikram, Hot Core Power, Hot Vinyasa, and Hot Pranakriya, four types of not-hot Yoga: Pranakriya, Restorative, Anusara-Inspired, and Prenatal, and Pilates, including Yogalates.
The previous reviewer is also mistaken--"Lotus Yoga and Pilates" does not exist. There is a Studio Lotus, and they offer Pilates, but not yoga.
Please disregard the previous reviewer's comments. They are in no way a representation of the studio as a whole or the vast majority of people's experiences there.

Pros: Qualified teachers, great variety of classes

Decatur Yoga and Pilates has an amazing staff, excellent class structure, and of course, the wonderful wet towel dipped in lavendar oil that is placed over your forehead after your hard work in the hot room. I have been to many yoga studios around the metro area, and I immediately felt at home here. ALL, and I mean, ALL of the instructors are approachable, knowledgeable, and humble all at the same time. I am completely hooked on this studio...and not to mention, because of how I feel about the studio, I go no less than 4 times per week..yoga and DYP has changed my body and my life.

Atlanta is blessed to have some great yoga studios and this one is the best of the best. The studio is tucked away in Decatur down in an underground hidey hole--like a diamond in a mine. After years of trying Bikram off and on, I love the Hot Core Power classes which are flow classes with breath and bodywork to music--very inspirational. The attitude at Decatur Yoga and Pilates is nurturing and positive--Bikram for true yogis (no competition, no judgment, listen to your body, go at your own pace) rather than Bikram by negative slave drivers (too many rules.) I was a cardio-funk/step aerobics instructor and personal trainer for 7 years and can tell you that this studio delivers a challenging workout. Get ready to sweat! You will get out of it what you put into it. If you are a beginner come early because out of consideration for everyone they lock the door once the class has started. The teachers are well educated. I have been 20-40 lbs overweight and I have never been intimidated to practice here. The lavender soaked towel at the end of class is worth the price of the drop in fee. I feel great every time I leave, having done the work I was meant to do. You will, too.
-Free parking
-Clean bathrooms
-Wish they had an 8:00 or 8:30 AM class before work--this is the only drawback
-Because it's hot, sometimes there is a smelly funk when I walk in the door to the hot room. Air freshener, candles and incense, please --laugh!
-Great books to read in the waiting area
-Peaceful atmosphere

I love the pilates sessions. Pilates is just good for toning and getting into the best shape. Pilates is one of the best exercising methods I know. Pilates is the exercise of the millennium!

I'm a 5-year veteran of Decatur Hot Yoga, a lovely studio conveniently located near downtown Decatur. At 59, I feel more fit, calmer, and more confident than ever before. Teachers at DHY are professional and knowledgeable; classes are small and flexible enough that teachers can give individual help and guidance where needed. They make an effort to get to know you and what your body needs. DHY offers a wide variety of classes, both hot and non-hot (Pilates included!), and you're invited to sample in order to find the right fit for you. You can be as challenged or relaxed as you like. GIve DHY a try; like I was, you'll be hooked!

I've been practicing yoga off and on since I was a teen in three or four cities, and this is by far the best studio I've tried!

The instructors are so warm and friendly, and you can definitely get a GREAT workout there without feeling intimidated. They let you work at your own level, and they don't push you to go further than you're ready for. There's no pressure, just opportunity. Classes allow you to build both your body and your spirit, and have given me a much deeper appreciation of yoga.

The facility is very clean and ambient. They do a wonderful job of creating a very zen atmosphere right when you walk through the door. They also have a wide offering of boutique-style yoga wear and yoga mats and accessories. It's really a one-stop shop for all of your yoga needs.

Pricing for classes is also very competitive, and the discounts for students, teachers, seniors, and military service persons are generous. With the wide variety of classes - yoga AND Pilates from 6:00 AM until 7:30 PM - available, there's really something for everyone at this studio. I can't imagine being anywhere else!

I have nothing but positive comments for Decatur Hot Yoga. It is a soothing haven of relaxation. Every teacher that I have studied with was positive and helpful. It caters to every level of experience. I always leave feeling as though I can conquer my day. The hot yoga is a wonderful experience. Being from Texas, it always reminds me of home.

Pros: Ambience, Service, Instrutors

Cons: The only possible "con" is that it is a bit busy during peak times - you can always call and ask for help picking a less-busy class.

I found that I could not get a good workout at this studio except in hot yoga, and that's just because of the nature of hot yoga, even it varied per instructor in level of intensity. The pilates and the non-hot yoga classes were more about feel-good fellowship with the regulars and the instructors. But, I can see that some folks really like it that way. Don't get me wrong, everybody is pretty friendly and it's definitely not bad, but just don't go there if you think you're doing it strictly for the exercise. The hot yoga is still something I enjoy but for conditioning pilates or yoga, look elsewhere.

I took my first yoga class at Decatur Yoga and Pilates about a year ago, and I fell in love. I especially enjoy the hot core power classes. They give you a real work out (you will be sore the next day), yet are relaxing at the same time.

This is such a warm open studio. The moment you walk in the doors you feel like part of the family. I highly recommend this studio to anyone from beginners to experts.

I have been a practicing since Debbie opened her doors five years ago. Each time I attend a class, I walk away with such a great feeling. The teachers are incredible and so experienced. The entire environment is warm and cozy. I am so happy to see how much the studio has grown. It is truly the best yoga studio. In this fast paced world, it's so nice to find a relaxing spot to find yourself!

This place is so cool! The staff is friendly, the website is super easy to use and the teachers know what they are doing. It also has a very peaceful, safe feel to it. I think it is pretty cool that they offer both hot and not hot classes, as well as pilates and other types of workshops if you want some variety evey now and then.

This is what a yoga studio should be --- welcoming, accepting, challenging and diverse. There are lots of different classes to choose from and different instructors. The variety ensures you are never bored. Also, taking classes with different instructors allows things to "click" in a different way. One instructor may explain something in a way that doesn't really gel for me but another will explain or demonstrate it in a way that it suddenly makes sense. After a hard day at work I want to work out hard and de-stress. The instructors understand that and try to meet each student where they are that day. As the owner said in my first class, "Wherever you are today, that's your yoga." Whatever expression of the posture works for your body and mind is welcome; there's no pressure to do things you're not comfortable with.

The hot classes are great. They are really hot and humid so you sweat a lot. There are 90 minute classes for the hot yoga traditionalists and the newer 60 minute Hot Power Fusion classes that emphasize more core work and upper body strengthening. For those interested in non-hot classes, there's pilates, ashtanga, iyengar and vinyasa. It's a friendly studio with relaxed classes, trained instructors and supportive staff and students.
