In 2006 Grace Tappin opened the first yoga studio in the Clinton Hill/Fort Greene area of her hometown Brooklyn. Previously, Grace was a graduate of the Spence School and an alumni of Cornell University School of Arts & Sciences. She was a former all season athlete and dancer trained in ballet, jazz, modern and musical theatre. Her journey to teaching yoga began as an apprentice to Amma Wilson a Brooklyn yogi then year later she was certified by Yoga skills Kemetic Yoga school, Equinox Institute Pilates and Barre Intensity. Grace has been teaching yoga, meditation & awareness based practices to NYC youth and adults since 2006. Our first location at Myrtle and Washington was a humble DIY space with offerings of yoga, pilates, dance, fitness and space rental for artists and fitness entrepreneurs in need of commercial space. The business quickly grew to be known as a space that was welcoming to blossoming yoga teachers and a true community space for all ages, body types and levels of yoga experience. At the time many studios were focused on intense power vinyasa classes, so we made sure to have offerings of beginner's classes, gentle, meditation and classes for seniors. In 2006 Grace also introduced her signature class Flow & Restore™ now a popular class for yogis of all levels that combines slow vinyasa flow & restorative yoga in one class. Our juice bar located just across from the studio is curated by Grace as well. Grace's journey to healthy eating began in high school when her brother introduced her to a vegan lifestyle, ital foods and martial arts. As a yoga student she found a network of Brooklyn based holistic wellness teachers already on the path of healthy living which gave her the tools to study and practice raw food eating and juice fasting. At the time we learned about healthy eating through books & teachers!
