I used to be a regular here for three years but will never go back after today. I was already starting to have a problem with many of the instructors moving to other yoga studios and how overcrowded the classes had become, and then today I had to pay a drop in class rate ($17!) because my class card expired YESTERDAY. They refused to honor it, were not apologetic, instead gave me a 'told you so' talk.

I have since discovered a really amazing new yoga studio called Greenhouse Holistic, which has two locations (one on Driggs, one on Roebling), tons of class options, great teachers, many of whom left Go Yoga to teach there, free mats, and community classes daily for $7.

Cons: Snobby staff, small class selection

This was my first introduction to yoga and I love it! The teachers are patient and very knowledgeable. Although I had never taken a yoga class before, I was able to do all the poses in a basic class. But basic does not mean easy, especially in Nicole's class. Be prepared for a workout. Everyone at Go Yoga is friendly. Prices are comparable to other studios and lately the unlimited passes have been the best prices I've seen in the area ($99 unlimited for January is a great price). Mats are available for rent at the session. Work study is also available for people who cannot afford to pay for classes; spend time behind the desk or cleaning the studio and your classes will be taken care of.

My friend does work study here and invited me to the beginner class last week. There were a lot of more advanced people there, too, and by the end most of us were soaked with sweat. It was definitely a workout. It was my first class and I'm in okay shape, and afterward I felt like I had worked out, but I was not in any pain. Nicole was the instructor and is very friendly. She was very helpful and constructive about correcting people's posture and form without making anyone feel stupid for not getting it right. It was a bit of a spiritual practice (we opened Sanskrit chants about enlightenment and ended with reflection on the practice), but I didn't feel pressured to believe anything, nor is it a cult-like atmosphere. With my first class I got my second one free, and I'll be going back this week. It was a little bit tight in the room because this place is so popular. I'd recommend it to anyone!

Pros: Great for beginners, 2nd class free, close to train

Cons: Room was packed because it's a great studio

they have some great teachers (michael and julia for starters; i haven't tried them all), classes are often accompanied by good music, and their intermediate/advanced classes are actually significantly more challenging than their open classes, unlike in many yoga places. the only thing i don't like is that the byzantine system of fees and fee-based rules gives the place an uptight and money-oriented feel, which i don't find very becoming in a yoga studio. (e.g., different fee schedules for different types of classes, short expiration periods on cards, $2 mat rentals and even so you have to clean the mat yourself [yes, of course you can bring your own mat, i'm just giving examples], you have to pay for a new card if you lose yours [i mean pay for the card itself, not just the classes on it], etc.) but still recommended.
