Welcome to Sellwood Yoga. We are located in Inner Southeast Portland in historic Sellwood. We are a family owned and operated yoga and wellness studio offering the practice of yoga, mindfulness and other classes, workshops and special events relating to wellness and a healthy lifestyle to everyone.

Sister and Brother, Savonn and Bill opened Sellwood Yoga in 2009

Siblings, Savonn and Bill, opened the studio in 2009. They along with their families live within blocks of the studio and love the neighborhood. Savonn and Bill’s first studio, Bernal Yoga (located in Bernal Heights, San Francisco, CA) opened in 2002. Savonn and Bill have extensive experience both teaching yoga and running successful businesses.

Sellwood Yoga instructors are non dogmatic with their teachings. The instructors are passionate about sharing their excitement and love for the many benefits of yoga and healthy living. Benefits that include: decreasing stress, feeling better, gaining flexibility, building strength, clearing your mind and connecting to your best self.

We believe based on our many years of experience teaching yoga that there are various ways to practice and learn. As such, we offer a complete and diverse schedule that is welcoming to new students, inspiring to current ones and challenging to the more experienced.

Our focus is on the practice of yoga and mindfulness and providing a welcoming, relaxing, clean and beautiful place to learn, relax and enjoy. Our goal is that students leave a class feeling better than when they arrived.

We also believe in the importance of supporting local artists and the environment. At the studio, the front desk, benches and storage accessories were custom made from a fallen maple tree by a neighborhood artisan. We display rotating exhibits of artwork throughout the space.

We are excited to offer our passion for yoga and our talented, down to earth teaching staff to Portland. We hope you to see you evolve or begin your practice at Sellwood Yoga.

I came to Sellwood Yoga simply to join a friend for a class, and signed up for the two week pass. I have to tell you, Sellwood Yoga is the best studio I have visited in Portland. I have not been able to maintain a regular yoga practice since I moved here years ago, because I could not find anything that matched the experience I was used to: a small, clean, comfortable studio, with excellent instructors who really care to check and correct postures. Coming to Sellwood yoga felt like coming home. I just signed up for the 15 class pass, and look forward to developing a more regular practice. Thank you for creating such a lovely yoga experience. - Kathy

I was just in town as a maid of honor for an awesomely DIY wedding and am now back in NYC, my home.  Sellwood yoga was such a life-saver while I was in Portland.  I was able to practice yoga or pilates almost every day, and it was so lovely to clear my mind and recharge so I could help the bride find her way down the aisle. - Rebekah
