If you don’t have your own mat yet, we have our favorite mats available for you to borrow at the studio. Sunflower carries both prAna and Manduka yoga mats for those who wish to own their own mat. Sunflower also carries prAna's high-quality line of yoga clothes to support your practice.
The space is newly renovated and housed within the historic Sunflower building. As described by Tom Harper in The Lawrence Times: “The yoga space is located on the second floor on the south side. It is an expansive space with a tall ceiling and floor space that stretches about 30 feet with three monumental, original, floor-to-ceiling windows facing Massachusetts Street. New, wide plank oak flooring and adjustable lighting have been installed. There will be space for up to 35 people to practice.”
