Welcome To Authentic Yoga Studio | Serving Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Nampa, Kuna


“Don’t have to be perfect, just be YOU.” is our motto at Authentic Yoga Studio. Specializing in Baptiste Yoga principles we are more than Yoga classes. We are a community supporting each other, offering a program with a wide variety of classes accessible to students that are willing to try. But much more than that… amazing people that support you along the way. We opened our yoga studios doors in September 2018. It has been an amazing journey and a new beginning to an amazing Boise, Meridian community that has built itself with the beautiful humans that walk in the door.

Authentic Yoga exists because of the students who we consider friends that walk in the doors for each and every class. Thank you all for taking a chance on yourself, on our community, and our caring and loving teachers, for doing the hard work, for believing in you, and showing up for yourself. That’s what makes the community what it is. I can’t wait for what the future holds as we grow. We remain focused on whole-body wellness, not just a yoga workout or teacher training program. You are always welcome to come just for the workout, but don’t be surprised when you leave with so much more.

At AYS we welcome everyone into our class practices. We take pride in being a non-judgemental place where all students of all walks of life can practice in our class and feel the love our teachers have for training and educating students at all various levels. We acknowledge how hard it can be to take that first step into doing something you are entirely new or not very good at. We take pride in being understanding and not judging the great students that come through our doors. We want you to feel welcome and enjoy being a part of our great yoga history. Like anything in life practice, training, and sticking to a program can help in all areas of one life.

Authentic Yoga Studio’s History

yoga pose with authentic yoga studio logo in backgroundI first stepped onto my yoga mat, really?… to get in shape more than anything or so I told myself. I talked a big game about trying hot yoga for a long time, and truly I walked into my first class, filled out the form, signed up. Here I go! When the teacher stood up to ask me if I was staying to take class, my reply was “I’m coming back to the later class.” I had gotten scared and decided to make up an excuse to get out.

That “later” class was most certain “later”…4 months later. I didn’t know how much I actually needed yoga at the time. I thought I was just going to get back in shape and sweat a lot. I gathered my courage and tucked away my shame for leaving the first time, only to walk right back in the same doors, to the same teacher. I know she didn’t recognize me, but I knew our first interaction. I made it past her, into the changing room, and finally into the heated room. What was about to happen, I didn’t know. I had tried to take an All Levels Yoga class at a smaller key entry gym a couple months prior to returning back for my first hot yoga class, thinking I needed to know what I would be doing. Boring AF!!! Not even going to lie. Not saying I wouldn’t now have an appreciation for the class now, I most certainly do and all practice of yoga, but we all have the types of yoga we prefer and the classes we do because we need to. That class was just not my class, that day. I am certainly glad I took a chance to walk back into that heated studio, I don’t think I would have continued to practice yoga at all.
