The mission is simple at Omaha Power Yoga. It isn’t about being flexible or a certain size; it’s about taking care of yourself, empowering yourself and feeling healthy.

One Tree Yoga started as a Bikram studio back in 2000, but has since expanded to incorporate many different styles of teaching, including restorative yoga, corporate yoga, yoga for athletes, and private yoga instruction alongside a wide variety of classes. With two locations (East and West Omaha) and classes on every day of the week, you’re sure to find an option to suit your preference and skill level.

This donation-based yoga studio believes that yoga should be available to everyone, which is why the teachers ask you to pay what you can upon entering. The studio offers a variety of classes that are sure to work up a sweat, but also encourages students to practice what they learn (including mindful breath and intention) off the mat.
Pure Om Yoga is perfect for those looking for a more personal yoga experience. The instructors keep classes small, and will even teach one-on-one classes if you prefer. Regardless, they will be sure to take your preferences and skill level into account, and offer adjustments to give you the best practice possible. Classes are by appointment only, so fill out the contact form to find out if Pure Om is right for you.

Yoga Now kicked off the yoga movement in Omaha in 1983 as the first established studio in the area. The studio is steeped in Himalayan tradition, and remains one of the most respected and popular studios in the Midwest. Enjoy a wide range of classes for all skill levels, all led by experts in their craft.
Whether you’re looking to challenge yourself physically or mentally, The Omaha Yoga Path hosts a variety of yoga classes for all levels. Learn the art of stillness in a meditation class, practice your handstands in an upper level class, or simply drop in and learn some yoga foundations. Regardless of where you are in your practice, the teachers are friendly, welcoming and eager to help you learn.
Bhadra Yoga was founded by two Omaha natives in 2007. The studio prides itself on inclusiveness and personal instruction in four different styles, including hatha, vinyasa, yin and restorative yoga. The aim is for students to focus on their breath and strength, so there are no mirrors in the studio. But have no fear — an experienced teacher will correct you if your form is off.
