The Body Electric Yoga Company was founded in 2013. Our mission is to improve the health and happiness of St. Petians by providing accessible, high-quality instruction in supportive, beautiful environments. The studio now serves more than 1,000 clients a week with a staff of 40, welcomes presenters from around the world, and partners with the City, and myriad local businesses and non-profits to bring yoga to the people.
The BE is a welcoming community. In our approaches and philosophies we strive to be inclusive, outward-looking, non-intimidating, and non-dogmatic. We believe in the personal and cultural benefits of yoga practices and mindful physical fitness and draw from many modes and lineages. Our goal is to uplift the entire region by improving the well-being of every individual we reach, and to reach as many individuals as possible.
