Welcome to Eden Yoga!

We have two locations, both designed to be a friendly, supportive environment for you to discover the many benefits of yoga or deepen your practice.

Our Concord studio is a bright, spacious, fully-equipped Iyengar yoga studio with ample room for 8-12 students. Keeping the classes small enables us to offer individual attention for greater safety and deeper learning. New students typically begin with a Fundamentals Series but are welcome to drop in on any class.

Our Exeter studio is a cozy, private space perfect for one-on-one or small group instruction. Here we offer individualized yoga programs.  New students begin with a Wellness Consultation so that we can design a program to support your unique needs and goals.

Questions? See the FAQ’s below and contact Kim at or 978-621-5542.

Frequently Asked Questions

~Exeter studio directions and parking info

Q: What do I wear to yoga? 
A: Comfortable clothing that does not inhibit movement. Any workout-type clothing is fine. Shorts or leggings are best (not sweatpants). They make it easier for the teacher to see your alignment.

Q: Do I need a yoga mat or other equipment?
A: No. We have everything you need here. If you have a mat or other props you like to use, feel free to bring them.

Q: Food and water…
A: It is not comfortable to practice on a full stomach. Give yourself an hour or two between mealtime and class. Come hydrated. You may bring your water bottle into class, but it is best not to drink much, as we might go upside down at any time.

Q: Are there bathrooms, changing rooms, or showers?
A: Neither studio has a shower and there are no separate changing rooms.
In Concord, there are Women’s and Men’s bathrooms on the first floor and one unisex bathroom on the second floor near the studio.
In Exeter, there is one unisex bathroom.

Q: Is this hot yoga?
A: No. Studio temperatures hover around 70°-75°. It is best to wear layers in colder weather.

Q: What if I have an injury or physical concern?
A: This practice is open to all people and all abilities. Unfortunately, neither studio is handicap accessible.  Please let your instructor know about your concerns before class starts.  If you are menstruating, pregnant or not feeling well, please let us know.  Certain poses are contraindicated and other poses will help in these situations – we will show you.  That said, yoga may not be appropriate for certain acute injuries or illnesses. If you are not sure about your specific condition, ask your doctor and email us at

Some students prefer to take a private yoga lesson prior to starting group classes. Other students enjoy pairing occasional private lessons with attending regular group classes. Private lessons will help you develop confidence and learn yoga that fits your needs. To schedule a private lesson, please e-mail us.

Please note that if you are ill with a cold or flu, it is best to stay at home. While we can offer you a sequence if you are recovering from illness, it is best to not attend class when you may be contagious.
