It's natural to feel a bit intimidated the first time you enter a yoga studio, even at here at Purple Blossom Yoga Studio. Remember everyone in the studio also had a “first class," including your instructor! At Purple Blossom Yoga, we do everything we can to make your first class experience positive. All you have to do is show up and breathe. We are not concerned with a perfect pose. You don’t have to be flexible, in "great shape", or have the right clothes. Everyone is welcome and we believe everyone who shows up will benefit.
Yoga is a mind-body exercise that originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. While there are many styles of yoga, in general, every style includes postures (asanas), meditation, and breathing techniques (pranayama). With regular practice, yoga builds physical strength and flexibility while reducing stress and improving the mind-body connection.
Yoga health benefits include reduced blood pressure, increased focus, a deeper spiritual mind/body connection, more energy, and better sleep at night. Many elements of yogic philosophy, such as loving kindness, compassion and non-judgment, may also influence an individual lifestyle as they adopt healthier habits and make more positive, life-affirming choices.

If you are new to yoga, you may be wondering what class to take. Hatha yoga is a gentle style with introductory poses that are accessible to individuals with all body types and athletic abilities. If you have never practiced yoga before, a hatha class is a good place to build a strong foundation before progressing to more athletic styles such as Vinyasa or Ashtanga. At Purple Blossom Yoga Studio, we are happy to work with all new students to find just the right beginner yoga class for you. We will never push you to enter a class that makes you uncomfortable or won't help you meet your goals. We have two Beginner Yoga classes on our schedule; Mondays at 5:30pm & Wednesdays at 4:00pm. Feel free to come in and join a class anytime. We also encourage you to join our Gentle yoga class as well on Wednesday at 5:30pm and of course Sam's class on Friday mornings at 8:30am. We hope that you'll find something you'll love here!
Finding the right instructor is another important part of beginning yoga. Our Greenville teachers are registered with Yoga Alliance have completed either 200 or 500 hours of training at an approved studio. You can practice with confidence knowing that our teachers are specifically trained to not only help you progress in your practice, but also to help prevent your body from being injured. While some instructors may lead classes in a brief chant, "OM", or share philosophy, don't let these experiences scare you as they are meant to bring you peace and good will. Stay focused on your breath and your mind will stay calm. The spiritual part of Yoga is entirely up to you!
With a variety of classes at our Greenville studio, you are sure to find a class and instructor at Purple Blossom Yoga Studio that can help you grow in your yoga mastery.
I have been a member of Purple Blossom for almost 3 years. I came to the studio not knowing a single pose or much about the philosophy and yet after each class I felt drawn more and more to yoga and the atmosphere at PB. I consider myself very fortunate to be able to learn and practice yoga in a beautiful environment with great teachers. Their experience has helped me advance my practice and achieve many goals. Thanks to Purple Blossom yoga has become a part of me. Every day I look forward to take a class at the studio.
Like home Absolutely love Purple Blossom! As a newbie in town, I felt welcomed. My relationship with the studio has concluded one year. I cannot find the words to express my immense gratitude. There is love, care, and competence in every single inch and in every single person in this studio. Go, enjoy and discover your yoga self.
