After a horrible start to a bad Monday. Where my car wouldn't start, a stressful day at work and
countless of other stressors on this day. Missing yoga was the icing on the cake and I felt miserable. Instead of doing what I would have done a few months ago and spreading my vibes to my mom, who's pretty much my go to on everything and drowning my sorrows in a tub of Ben and Jerrys, I decided to do some yoga. While even that scenario wasn't perfect, leaving my mat in my dead car, having a small space to practice in, having a curious cat in my face,I wasn't going to let that stop me. I turned down the lights in my apartment, put lavender oil in my diffuser and found a wonderful calm mediation station on my pandora and started. I went through the whole series, breathing, finding my center, letting go of all the stress and tension. Did countless down dogs and puppy poses. I went through the whole Monday night course. Even practicing my dolphin pose after throughly stretching my shoulders. I could hear your voice guiding me through each breath, into each pose and every transition. It was like I never missed class. I just wanted to thank you for giving me the tools to change my life and being able to practice everyday for many years to come. Yoga and you are truly inspiring. Thank you for helping gain my strength back both physically and internally.
Thank you for having such a beautiful, peaceful & welcoming Yoga Studio! I can always count on a great class at Ageless. It does not matter what type of day I am having, when I attend a class here, my day becomes zen perfect! Kitty has a kind spirit and it shows with how much she cares about every student. She is engaged with her classes; taking the time to walk around making adjustments. Kitty also does Reiki. Her sessions have always made such a positive difference in how I feel. :) Thank you Kitty for having a studio which is welcoming to all types of students in their yoga journey! I have a student of Ageless since 9/15/2015. Whether someone is brand new or has years of experience, your studio certainly offers a wealth of diverse classes. Definitely give this studio a try, you wont be disappointed! Namaste,
Seriously such an amazing workout! Stop spending endless hours on an elliptical and try this out!!
I've wondered about yoga for a while, but could never find a class that started as basically as "This is a yoga mat." Then I saw the absolute Beginning Yoga classes offered at Ageless Studios. The price was right and included a mat and eye pillow. I also worried about those stories of friends who were injured at a yoga class, but Kitty paid close attention to my form so that worry was reduced.
Each class built on the last and by the end of six weeks, I had a grasp of what this Yoga thing is all about. Kitty stresses that Yoga is my own personal journey and the pose, the strength, the flexibility is about what _I_ can do. I am 66 years old. I do run and cross train but I'm hardly an athlete. Grace and flexibility? Ha! But at the end of each session, I feel relaxed and strong.
Kitty makes each class feel like she planned it just for me. The studio is clean and serene. And the best part is that I begin each class knowing that when I leave I will feel better than I have since I left the last class.

Kitty understands coming back from serious injuries, and the painstaking process involved in learning yoga...this is not a short learning curve with instant results; it IS a process that will benefit your life, if you are patient and committed. Kitty's encouragement is the true star here, and I know that I wouldn't have lasted the new member month if I hadn't talked with her first, because here's the thing: I heard about this studio from a friend who knows I ride horses and told me that there is a class for equestrians at Ageless Yoga on Tuesday nights. I was very excited about this class, and was ready to sign up. Kitty evaluated my level of strength and suggested that I hold off on the equestrian class until my strength improves by attending a more fundamental class. I'm so glad I listened, because I would have been out of my depth and quickly discouraged if I had jumped right in to the equestrian class. Now, my goal is not just to attend that class, but to know enough and have enough strength to be able to get something out of it, and not just keep up. I'm almost through with my new member month, and I will keep coming back because I'm already experiencing some terrific benefits from my practice. Namaste :-)

I have started and stopped countless yoga classes over the years...classes that were too crowded, too fast, too hot, and too intimidating (Headstands? Not happening!). I had pretty much decided that yoga wasn't for me...until I attended a class at Ageless Yoga. From the first email communication with Kitty to the class itself, I felt like I had found the perfect place to really practice yoga, for the first time in my life. Kitty took the time to learn about my experiences and my goals for my practice. The classes are small, and Kitty takes the time to walk around and make adjustments in her students' positions. I find her voice to be very soothing, and though I really work up a sweat in the classes I always leave with the feeling that I can look forward to a relaxing night of sleep.
This is a wonderful, professional and peaceful place to learn yoga. Shortly after I began I discovered I had a serious medical condition and the diversity of classes allowed me to continue yoga as part of my complete restoration to health. I also did many Reiki sessions with Kitty to enhance my recovery. I am very grateful to this special place, recommend it to anyone of any age, ability and health status.
A few months ago, I started looking for a yoga studio that catered to Military Veterans. I am a Former Marine that has a lot of lower back, knee and neck pain do to my time in the Corps. I contacted Kitty and she told me about Connected Warriors, a free program for veterans that she has implemented at Ageless Yoga. I had never tried yoga before but I have always heard great things about it. At our first few classes, it was just the two of us. She took the time to get to know me as a person and what ails me. Kitty showed me how to do the various poses and gently corrected them as needed. Patience is a strong attribute of her that I observed during those first few class together. She provides all the equipment that is needed. The class is held on Sunday's from 1:30-2:30. I look forward to seeing new faces as well as old. Thank you Kitty and Semper Fi.

I had my first Beginners Class tonight at Ageless Yoga and absolutely loved it! I can't wait to go back, I really think this is one of the best decisions that I have ever made!

I researched quite a few yoga studios before I decided upon Ageless. Kitty is a wonderful instructor! She takes the time to work with you to make sure you get the most out of your yoga practice. I highly recommend the yin yoga and restorative yoga class!

Absolutely the best studio in Lexington! I've tried almost all of them at one point or another but after I found Ageless I knew I found home. I've been with them for 4 years and plan to stay as long as I'm in Lex. All of the teachers are great, and they offer tons of different types of classes (yin, vinyasa, hot, aerial). The practice is very scientifically based and safe; any one looking for a studio to cater to old injuries or sensitivities needs to come here
Best yoga studio in Lexington. Teachers are incredible, atmosphere is welcoming, and there's a variety of classes and times so you can switch it up and find exactly what it is you are looking for through yoga. Definitely recommend it!
This was my first time to Ageless Yoga, and I'm a fan. This is a topnotch studio with great energy. I liked the aroma
therapy a lot. I'm 55, and although I have many years of past yoga experience, I haven't been to a yoga class in over a
year. It was a challenge to make myself get started again, but I'm so glad I did. I came away from this evenings Yin class
feeling great. My muscles feel lengthened and strengthened and I have no worries about a stressed back or sciatica
twinges. I'm relaxed and happy. Kitty is a pro, and kept the class challenged while she kept an eye on me, offering props
and listening to me to make sure I had options that my tight muscles could handle. I think I'll give her Intro to Hot Yoga
class a try for some deep relief from old sport and work related injuries.
I've been going to the beginner's classes for a little over 2 weeks now and I'm absolutely in love!!! Kitty is an amazing instructor and has the kindest spirit. I've tried yoga before (via DVD) but it is incomparable to having the peaceful environment at Ageless and an instructor who is caring, attentive & extremely helpful. If you've wanted to try yoga she offers an awesome $30 beginner's pass, for 30 days of unlimited yoga! Go for it, you will NOT be disappointed!

Ageless Yoga studio is simply that—Ageless. The studio itself sets the mood—your journey begins walking up the steps, and then, you can sense you are in for a special time—no matter your mood when you enter. This atmosphere is complemented by the amazing yoga instructors—each providing a unique session guaranteed to leave you better than when you entered—whether that is a better mood, renewed energy, increased flexibility, increased strength, or renewed peacefulness within yourself.
I have practiced yoga for a few years, and also work as a Physical Therapist (with good anatomical knowledge and a love for being a PT)). What I truly love about Ageless Yoga is the yoga instructors have a mindful eye when it comes to correcting postures/techniques of clients to further improve their technique, which results in injury prevention and increased self-awareness (thus helping us challenge ourselves safely). In addition, the instructors demonstrate/explain poses with different modifications/levels of challenge enabling us students to do poses at our level of ability—which further improves our mood—because we are all able to participate fully in our yoga journey.
I personally have found yoga to be inspiring and introspective, enabling me to continue evolving as an individual on her own yoga journey through life. Ageless Yoga has helped me realize practicing yoga IS a continual journey—not just to work on one pose, or building/improving flexibility and strength, but to address also “inner soul searching and strengthening.” I am always “evolving and growing, blooming wherever I am planted”; I am forever grateful to Kitty (and Karen) at Ageless Yoga, and the other instructors I have been blessed to take classes with—-all of you have been a key part in helping me grow. Thank you so very much!
Thanks again, Kitty!
Love and blessings,
Karen's Thai Yoga is amazing – she has changed my life by helping to restore my physical body from decades of overuse and neglect. And her healing touch provides a deep relaxation experience that releases negative emotional blockages. We discover something new each time.
Cara genuinely cares for and provides individual attention to each of her students. Her on-going narrative relates each asana to one or more of the five elements. Her classes are just challenging enough for me at this point in my life. She gives me hope that diligence in my practice will bear fruit in the long run.
Kitty, I am so glad I discovered your studio.
I haven't tried a class that I didn't love!! Beautiful studio & wonderful instructors!
