In 1999 we opened one of the first yoga studios in Richmond with the simple belief that yoga is for everyone. That has always been our guiding principle. Glenmore has expanded three times and our current space occupies 4,800 square feet in Glen Eagles Shopping Center with two large, carpeted yoga studios, three massage treatment rooms, a lounge with a library, and a gift shop offering products to support your yoga and meditation practice as well as jewelry and gift certificates. Yoga is for every body and we offer a wide variety of 30 ongoing classes to meet your needs each week. Annually, we offer our 200- and 300-hour teacher training programs.
