Baltimore Mangazine’s Best of Baltimore – Best place to do yoga
“With six studios stretching from Severna Park to Pikesville, it’s our favorite place to say “Namaste.” Classes are offered almost every hour, and the dedicated staff (special shout outs to CJ, Edith, and Camille) manages to kick our butts (but with love). CCY also offers a wide variety of interesting workshops from the Yoga of Running to Yoga After Dark (featuring a live DJ).”

Baltimore Magazine, Best of Baltimore, 2012
“When it comes to yoga in Baltimore, there’s not a mat we haven’t done downward dog on, so believe us when we say that this place is the gold standard of studios.”

“Charm City Yoga provides a wide variety of choices in styles and intensity, all the way from gentle beginner and Hatha style through vigorous Ashtanga and mind-blowing sweaty-hot Vinyasa workouts, led by committed and caring instructors who don’t want you to hurt yourself if you’re a newbie.”

City Paper, Best of Baltimore, 2009
“You don’t have to believe in chakras or reincarnation or anything, really, except the idea that periodically you need to give your body and mind a little attention. The place we like to do that is Charm City Yoga, where beginners can find a class that’s just the right speed, from slow and gentle to fast and furious.”

City Paper, Best of Baltimore, 2008
“The teachers are engaging, top quality, and harbor a holistic approach to the practice.”

City Paper, Best of Baltimore, 2007
“If you are not up for the heat, Charm City offers a variety of other classes, including ashtanga, vinyasa flow, prenatal, and rock ‘n’ roll, from beginner’s level to superadvanced, floating-above-the-ground yogi-style.

City Paper, Best of Baltimore, 2006
“The studio’s signature hot vinyasa is the perfect combination of stretching and strengthening to clear your mind and energize your body. And don’t let a skinny wallet hold you back–community yoga classes cost only $6.”

Baltimore Magazine, Best of Baltimore, 2006
” [...] owner Kim Manfredi, who studied yoga in India, brings a peaceful, communal vibe to her centers that we find very conducive to our downward-facing dog.”

City Paper, Best of Baltimore, 2005
“Every athletic club in town now offers yoga classes, so what’s so special about Midtown Yoga? Close to two dozen different instructors during the week, with classes both before and after work hours, that’s what.”

City Paper, Best of Baltimore, 2004
“The diminutive Manfredi—who boasts what appears to be less than 1 percent body fat—fills her hearth of a studio with her an infectious jovial spirit while working every joint and muscle in your body with a relentless series of postures—most performed twice. Manfredi tests your will—are you laughing because it’s funny?—while finding the equilibrium between balance, strength, and flexibility, reciting the bon mot, ‘No one is born with all three.’”
