“The Driftless Yoga Center opens on the backbone of love as a verb. At DYC you’ll find a place to practice actionable love for your body, each other, and the welfare of the community as a whole. A spot where we get stronger, simply by uplifting one another. Where what matters is the size of your heart, not the size of your waist. Quite literally, a movement space reimagined.”

The Driftless Yoga Center holds three values at its core:
1) Equity-Driven
A pay by the class model that offers participants flexibility and removes the financial barrier to access movement
2) Radically-Compassionate
A belief that movement, yoga, and fitness belong to everyone. Creating a brave space free of judgement, gossip, and diet culture
3) Justice-Supporting
Donating to organizations that uplift the liberation of all people
