CT Yoga Center is Moving!

While the build out of our brand new 2500 square foot yoga and wellness studio is being completed, we will share space with Middletown’s first yoga studio – Yoga in Middletown. Located on the corner of Main Street and Washington Street, at 438 Main Street, we are now walkable to your favorite downtown restaurants, shops and local business as well as the CT River and Wesleyan campus. Parking is free on Pearl Street and above always. Metered parking is available on Main Street and behind the building in the Melilli Lot. Parking is free on Sundays and after 6pm on weekdays in most metered areas.

CT Yoga Center offers our deepest gratitude for the opportunity to share Yoga in Middletown. Owner Sandra Kopel opened this fully equipped, sunlit studio in 1991, making YIM Middletown’s first yoga studio. She continues to study and teach the alignment based yoga system created by B.K.S. Iyengar and currently offers: All Levels – Beginners through Advanced, Back Care, Scoliosis, Wall Ropes, Restorative, Prenatal and Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Credits.

We are fully equipped with Yoga mats, luxury Yoga blankets, straps, blocks, and eye pillows for your comfort and enjoyment while in classes and private sessions. Most Yoga students bring their own Yoga mats and eye pillows, but feel free to borrow ours at no cost.

At CT Yoga Center you will experience:

  • Quality group & private instruction by caring teachers
  • Spacious, well lit & comfortable atmosphere free from judgement and competition
  • All ages, conditions & levels welcome
  • Friendly teachers who know your name


An Empowering Experience

The intention of Connecticut Yoga Center is for you to have an empowering and healthy experience while you are here. If there is anything we can do to better serve your needs, please let us know. You can speak to your Yoga instructor individually before or after class or call or text the studio at 860.986.2017. We welcome your feedback and look forward to learning from you, too.

  • Room temperatures may vary. We do our best to keep Connecticut Yoga Center on the warm side as this is the safest for your body. However, this is not a “hot yoga” studio. Most students wear light, comfortable clothing that can be layered.
  • An empty stomach or near empty stomach is usually the most comfortable way to practice Yoga and is recommended. You may bring water with you and drink anytime during class. We also have bottles for $1 in case you forget.
  • Whenever possible, please do not use perfumes of colognes as a courtesy to our Yoga instructors and other Yoga students who may be sensitive or allergic.
  • There are no cell phones in Connecticut Yoga Center! This is for your benefit. If you absolutely must have your cell phone because of an emergency, please be super respectful and have it on silent, not vibrate.
