Love this new West Town studio. Very community minded, friendly, accessible and comfortable.

Great group of instructors that are super welcoming to students of all skill levels.

Mark Wadley

I’m a beginner, who has tried yoga classes at other places in the past, but this is the first studio I’ve wanted to keep coming back to.

Lauren Meyer

All of the teachers are experienced, and they put together interesting progressive Hatha sequences that allow you to get deeper into the poses.

Rebecca Koppel

Student at BSY
Poses are broken down into accessible steps, and more challenging options are offered for those who are in the mood for a more intense practice.

Alice Su

Student and Instructor at BSY
Big shoulder is a vibrant studio with experienced instructors who truly love the practice and it shows in which they care for their students.

Where does BSY get its name?

The City of Big Shoulders

Big Shoulders Yoga gets its name from Carl Sandburg's poem 'Chicago'.

Hog Butcher for the World,
 Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat,
 Player with Railroads and the Nation's Freight Handler;
 Stormy, husky, brawling,
 City of the Big Shoulders
