Our Center is the oldest active yoga studio in South Florida. The Yoga Center in Deerfield began 35 years ago by a young yogini, Gail Teichmann. Dotty Zevin, RYT, became the Director 20 years ago. Today the Yoga Center is a place teeming with different kinds of yoga classes for every day of the week. Day and night classes include Hatha Yoga, Flow Yoga, Restorative / Therapeutic, Stress Reduction, Gentle, Beginners, Yoga for Balance and Strength, Jivamukti and Feldenkrais.
Our teachers come from all different backgrounds of yoga. All are Registered Yoga Teachers with Yoga Alliance. The touchstone of the Yoga Center is the Teacher Training Program. JoAnn Evans, RYT (500 hours) has been the Director of Teacher Training since 1988. The program begins every September.
As stated in the June 2004 Enlightened Practice by staff writer, Silvana Soleri: The Yoga Center of Deerfield Beach is more than a yoga studio - it is a historical landmark of our South Florida yoga community. It is a treasure trove of experience, devotion, and integrity in the life and practice of the yogic path.
Our 200-hour certification course resumes September 2017. This in depth, comprehensive course by certified teachers provides hands on training, instructional materials, individual guidance and exploration of all aspects of Yoga.
Classes are offered every day of the week. Newcomers are welcome to attend any class. We encourage you to try different classes to find the one that works best for your needs.

"Thank you for the timely directory (“Yoga Resources,” Jan/Feb ’05). I recently visited my mother in Florida and checked the issue for a yoga studio nearby. I was so fortunate to find the Yoga Center of Deerfield Beach. The studio was pleasant, the teachers warm, the atmosphere welcoming, and the classes personalized. I would never have found this great place otherwise.” As written to The Yoga Journal (June, 2005) by Martha Roth, New York, NY
