ASCEND Point Breeze's yoga studio is GORGEOUS, and is arguably our favorite space in the whole facility, which is saying a lot because the rope area is also quite lovely. Its 18' ceilings allow for maximum acro play, and alongside the giant, elevated windows, provides an openness that any yogi will want to soak in. We have all the props you'll need for class, but feel free to bring your own.
