Mission Yoga also offers aerial silk classes as a three-week series and Lyra classes as a four-week series.

Steamtown Hot Yoga & Barre

523 Bogart Place, Scranton

Steamtown Hot Yoga (SHY) focuses on wellness and community in equal parts. The studio operates with the belief that yoga is more powerful when practiced as a group, and therefore it works hard to create a supportive community environment for all practitioners.
