Yoga For All Beings is a yoga studio located in Chicago’s Ukrainian Village neighborhood. Yoga For All Beings offers a variety of classes including: vinyasa, vin-yin, beginners yoga, restorative yoga and yoga nidra. Our studio occupies a large, open loft space on the 3rd floor at 508 N Hoyne Ave, across the street from the vegan cafe, Upton’s Breakroom. With numerous windows providing natural light and exposed brick walls, Yoga For All Beings is often called a “hidden gem” by students. It’s not just about our look, but about what we do inside of the yoga walls that really matters. All YFAB teachers are not just well- trained and certified instructors, but they’re wonderful human beings who are eager to create the best experience possible for their students. We understand that not all beings are built the same and that every individual body is different, requiring different adaptations for certain poses. We’ve got tons of props at the studio, including bolsters, blocks, blankets, straps and sandbags. At Yoga For All Beings, we believe that anyone can practice yoga. With infinite possibilities there’s so much that you can do on a yoga mat, whether you’re wanting to take things up a notch or down a notch. Child’s pose is always there for you, no matter what anyone on the mat next to you might be doing. Yoga For All Beings is a judgment-free zone… we welcome you with open arms, happy hearts and smiling faces. For new students, please take advantage of our intro special: $20/1 week of unlimited yoga.
Angie shares the gifts of yoga through creative, challenging and accessible vinyasa flow. Her teaching style is heavily influenced by her primary teachers Alyson D’Souza, Daren Friesen, Sara Strother and Danielle Dickinson.
As a very fortunate 15 year old, Angie was required to take a yoga course to fulfill a physical education requirement – little did she know that this requirement would quickly become a lifelong practice that cultivated fitness for her in body, mind and spirit.
Ten years later, in early 2012, Angie had an epiphany: she held the key to her own happiness and yoga was that key. She felt the call to teach others how to unlock happiness through their own yoga practice. She completed her 200hr teacher training with Daren Friesen at Moksha Yoga Center and continues to study at Moksha. She has been honored to study with master teachers Sadie Nardini, Kathryn Budig, Jason Crandell, Tias Little, Aadil Palkhivala and Seane Corn.
Through intelligent sequencing, each of Angie’s classes aims to honor a specific intention – like opening the heart or opening the hamstrings. Angie’s classes focus on utilizing the physical tools we are given by yoga asana – movement and breath – to unlock the mental and spiritual gifts that the yoga tradition offers. No matter the initial intention of a class, the outcome is always the same – you leave feeling stronger, lighter and happier!
During the first class he took in 2001, Morgan noticed that there was an intrinsic challenge to the practice of yoga. Not yet ready to shift his attention to practicing yoga full time, his path began as an on-again, off-again student. But as Morgan steadily increased his practice to two and three times a week, he realized that the more time he spent on the mat, the more yoga helped to focus his mind – and with this focus, he found he could accomplish the goals he set for himself. With his devotion to yoga, Morgan wanted to share the knowledge and joy that yoga had given him, so he began teaching in 2008. With his down-to-earth approach and sense of humor, Morgan makes the practice of yoga accessible to all students by sharing and exploring the gifts of breath and physical movement. Now practicing and teaching yoga on a daily basis, Morgan takes the lessons he learns on the mat and applies them to his life, proving that yoga is both an exercise of the mind and body as well as a way of life.
