About Us

Brown Dog Yoga is located in the heart of Huntington, West Virginia in the historic Heritage Station Village and provides yoga instruction to those seeking peace and well-being on every level. We embrace the essence of hatha yoga, an “eclectic” style of yoga, meaning that the postures or “asanas” are a large part of the class. Students will also learn breathing and meditation techniques, as well as lifestyle practices to aid in stress management.

BDY also offers 45-minute barre fitness and cardio sculpt classes incorporating HIIT (high intensity interval training) and resistance training.

Our goal at BDY is to help busy individuals find inner peace and balance—to be less about human "having" and human "doing," and more about human being.

Brown Dog Yoga FAQ

I'm not flexible enough to do yoga! Where do I start?
Yoga is much more than a stretching class. Yoga classes emphasize the importance of breathing and moving into postures that honor your body. Props are available to help with alignment and there is a significant strengthening component to the practice as well.

I've been looking for a non-impact way to get into shape. What are my options?
Both of our studios emphasize non-impact fitness. Tailwind Indoor Cycling is a high-energy, non-impact 45-minute class that combines indoor cycling with weight work. We always set an intention at the beginning of class and ride in the spirit of community. Our yoga, sculpt and barre classes are als non impact ways to move your body without excessive stress on the joints. While barre are set to high-energy music, our yoga flow classes provide physical as well as spiritual benefits.

Will yoga help me with stress?
Evidence shows that any form of exercise will help with stress, but yoga in particular with its emphasis on breathing and meditation, is a wonderful avenue for stress reduction.

Will someone help me figure out a plan once I join?
Our staff is there to serve our students, and we are dedicated to helping people achieve their goals and live with intention. Our studios and classes are designed to provide a variety of choices so that one may come every day and get what they need, whether it be a gentle yoga class or a cycling class, or a strength training class like BDY Sculpt.

How do I sign up?
We have a special for our new students- 30 days for $30, and $45 for both studios. We offer 10% off all passes and memberships if you sign up during your intro offer. There is no long-term commitment, and we offer 3 guest passes to members to share with friends.

What Can I Expect?

At Brown Dog Yoga, we believe that yoga is for “every body.”  There are a variety of styles, techniques, and yoga traditions, and our classes will vary depending on the instructor and their class style.  You won’t see an “intermediate” or “advanced” descriptor on our classes because we believe that your yoga is YOUR yoga.  Each and every day, we are all “beginning” and with any luck we are all on a journey to a greater awareness of ourselves.

All of this said, there are some common elements to many yoga classes:

Centering and Intention:  We usually begin class with a centering practice, such as focusing on the breath or setting of an intention.  The intention is personal and is used to guide you through your practice.  It may be as simple as “may I breath easy during my practice.”  The setting of an intention is very personal, and if it is your choice, optional.

Warm up:  Most yoga classes begin with gentle movement, leading into more active movement, typically involving “sun salutations.”  There are many different versions of sun salutations, but in a nutshell a sun salutation is a series of postures that are repeated in the same order a few times.  Think of a sun salutation as a little wake up for the body to prepare it for your yoga journey.

Ending with final relaxation:  Classes start in many different ways, but most yoga classes end with “savasana” or corpse pose.  All you have to do is lie down, close your eyes, slow your mind and relax your body.  Savasana helps you clear your mind and settle down.  Think of savasana as a “cleaning out” process and a vehicle to aid you in self-realization.
