Welcome to Rubber Soul Yoga, a community-based, teacher-run donation yoga space in Athens, GA. It is our mission to create a safe and welcoming environment where individuals, regardless of finances, age, weight, religion, race, education, experience, or flexibility can learn and maintain a yoga practice in the company of others and with the support of dedicated and community-spirited teachers.
Our instructors volunteer their time in the spirit of Karma Yoga, serving for the benefit of others. Through shared goals and experience, we strive to create a greater sense of connection within ourselves and throughout our city.
Our classes are all drop-in format, with no pre-registration or contracts required. Our payments are scaled, so that price isn’t a barrier to attendance. We request a $10 donation per class, which maintains our space and covers our operating expenses, however, we will accept whatever amount you are able to give within the context of your personal financial situation. In addition, we offer a $35-$75 sliding scale monthly membership for unlimited yoga.
Our schedule includes classes for whatever you are hoping to find, from vigorous flow, to alignment-based offerings, to deep restorative classes. Our instructors are well versed in educating new students as well as challenging and renewing students with a regular practice. So whether it is your first class or your 500th, our instructors will provide you with a meaningful, modern sequence.
Our studio provides plentiful props, mats, and equipment to enrich your yoga practice and our classes are taught in a beautiful studio space with high ceilings and natural light.
All are welcome at Rubber Soul, and our yogis are made up of a diverse group of folks from many different walks of life, backgrounds and orientations.
