Welcome to Absolute Yoga


ABSOLUTE YOGA offers a refuge from the daily challenges of life. Located in Woodbury, Long Island, our two beautiful, peaceful studios provide the perfect environment for the ultimate union of body and soul.

We have over 50 classes per week in a variety of yoga styles and levels from beginner yoga to an energetic, strengthening warm vinyasa yoga. We also offer kid’s, pre- and post-natal yoga (yogi baby), restorative yoga, yoga for MS, as well as mat pilates and barre classes. Our yoga instructors are all certified in different styles and schools of yoga, including Vinyasa, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Anusara™ and Prana Flow. They are committed to offering you expert guidance as you experience the benefits that yoga can bring to your every day life.

Our mission at ABSOLUTE YOGA is to make yoga readily accessible to every body, regardless of age, level or fitness ability. It is not necessary to be flexible or strong to begin a yoga practice; an open mind and a willingness to explore your experience is all that’s required. Yoga is an amazing journey of self-discovery. We encourage everyone to come and experience some of the incredible benefits of this 5,000 year old practice.

We also have a full service yoga boutique with a large selection of yoga clothing (including Be Present, Beyond Yoga, Soybu, Colosseum, Prism Sport, Rese, Jois and Alo), jewelry, mats and props, mat carriers, Ayurvedic products, and an array of books and music.

- Testimonials -

Outstanding, experienced instructors. I especially like the spirituality in many of the classes. I also like the serene and spa-like atmosphere of the studio. Being able to purchase a package of individual classes suits my hectic schedule and limited budget. There are many different classes offered at many different times by different instructors. Very important for my unpredictable schedule. The variety will keep me challenged and engaged.

-Kathleen B.-

I felt welcome the moment I walked in. The soft lighting, candles, music and scent of the studio was very peaceful - exactly what I needed at the end of my day. It was my first yoga class and although there were many skill levels represented in class, [the instructor] made me feel at ease immediately. She encouraged me along the way, praised me, corrected my postures, and remembered my name! I was made aware of your free week trial from my sister, and after this first class, I purchased a [series] for 15 more classes! Thank you!

-Breanne R.-

I originally purchased the Groupon online and have found through my search and attendance at many different yoga studios that Absolute yoga is my favorite! I feel very comfortable in the studio, the teachers are amazing, and feel that I have obtained an amazing, concentrated workout.
