This is not your typical yoga in the city! Gabriel is an incredibly talented instructor who uses the appropriate amount of mantras, dharma, mudras, alignment adjustments, and a proper savasana. Leave your expectations at the door before you start class because Gabriel will surprise, inspire, and challenge you while you experience and appreciate each moment for what it is (and what it is not).
As the YC begins its 29th year, here is the skinny on the
family…Tara (21) is a senior at NYU and is headed to Broadway after

University in Indianapolis, pursuing early education as her major.
Margaret and Gabriel just celebrated their 22nd wedding anniversary
and are working to continue to fund the dream for their girls. The

Chicago community that has supported our oasis in the city for
nearly 3 decades.
The Yoga Cricle was voted the Best Traditional Yoga Studio in Chicago for 2013 by Chicago Magazine. This is what they had to say:
“Gabriel Halpern, a bit of a legend, in the Chicago yoga scene, started his Iyengar Yoga style studio nearly 30 years ago. Expect to go deep into the traditional form of yoga under the tutelage of Halpern and his experienced instructors. The master class is a replica of one taught at the Iyengar Institute in Pune, India.”
