Welcome to Urban Yoga Chicago!

Looking for increased productivity, clarity, response-ability, core strength and sustained energy? We focus on a technology that takes you there fast: kundalini yoga & meditation. We also offer lifestyle components (like vegetarian cooking) and opportunities to delve deeper: privates, mentorships, workshops and continuing education. We're about sharing how to incorporate these tools into our lives. Because yoga is not about what cool thing we can do on the mat. It's about how it can serve us off the mat.  Sign up for our newsletter
