Feel Your Best, Live Your Best

Welcome to Center of Gravity: Lexington, Virginia’s Yoga & Pilates Studio

Our offerings include the holistic practice of Yoga, the empowering strength of Pilates, and the healing energy of Tai Chi. Some classes are more of a physical workout while others are more focused on mental and physical relaxation, yet all of our teachers are dedicated to helping you find your inherent health and wholeness in a safe and fun environment. Whether you are a curious beginner, a seasoned yogi, or an athlete looking for either a vigorous cross-training or a gentle recovery, there is something for you.

After responding to questions and having temperature taken, enter the studio space through the office door and set up your station on an X, feel free to clean props and mat before use, then go wash hands before class.

Clients can bring their own mats or use ours.

At the end of class: clients should use a clean washcloth to wipe down props and then put the used washcloth in the basket by the door.  We have a disinfectant spray in 3 places to avoid congestion.

Wash hands at the end of class and exit studio.
