Welcome to Ocala Yoga Center
Ocala Yoga Center was founded with a vision to create a community that is conscious, connected, loving and playful. Our mission at OYC is to introduce our students to the essential teachings of yoga and to empower them with an accessible, challenging yoga asana practice.
We offer a wide variety of yoga classes to support a full range of students; from the beginner who is just looking to dip their toe in the water, to the seasoned yogi who has been practicing for years, we have a class and schedule to fit you.
OYC = a studio where all are welcome!
Flexibility is not a pre-requisite. A willing spirit is.
A Few Tips
Preparing For Your First Class
Please arrive at least 10 minutes before class begins to complete new student paperwork and to receive a proper welcoming to our community. Please understand you may not be allowed into class if you are late.
What to Bring
Bring a yoga mat, towel and water to stay hydrated. If you don’t have your own mat we offer mat rental for $1 per class. For warm classes you will want to use your towel to wipe down your mat (and yourself) after class.
Wear Comfortable Clothes
Wear loose or stretchy clothing that will not restrict movement. Layers are best, as your body temperature changes throughout your practice. Yoga is practiced in bare feet, so be prepare to remove your shoes and socks.
Practice on an Empty Stomach
Avoid practicing with a full stomach. Depending on the class, refrain from eating 2 hours – 30 minutes before class. Drink plenty of water before class to remain hydrated throughout your practice.
Turn off Your Cell Phone
Your practice is a great time to disconnect and take time for yourself. To minimize distractions, please silence your cell phone or leave it in the car when you arrive to the studio.
Deciding to begin a yoga practice is a choice to change your life.
Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to do yoga if I have an injury or medical condition?
In most cases the answer to that question is yes. In fact, yoga is excellent way to support the body in its healing process. However, you will want to inform your doctor or health care provider before you begin your practice, and be sure to let your teacher know what is going on so they can address your specific needs.
