The Breathing Room is a healing arts studio in the heart of Central Square, just upstairs from Life Alive and the 1369 Coffeehouse. We offer a variety of yoga and movement classes, massage and bodywork services, and reiki healing.
In October 2014, we launched a second space in Harvard Square, just across the street from Berryline, where we offer even more yoga and movement classes.
Classes in our Central Square location are usually just eight students or less, so you can have the intimacy of a small community and the attention of a dedicated teacher. Classes in our Harvard Square location can fit a couple dozen students without feeling cramped, so you can enjoy the energy of a larger group. Both experienced practitioners and complete newcomers are welcome.
Our class packs and memberships are valid in both locations. We also offer deep massage discounts to students.
Here’s how people describe us on Yelp:
“The Breathing Room is exactly that. A space that encourages you to truly breathe. You first walk in and take off your shoes to experience the Texture Garden of rugs, and if that isn’t enough to give you pause, the staff, instructors, and massage therapists consistently create a fabulously grounded, peaceful vibe. The size of the main yoga room is smaller than many studios, which means you always get a smaller class size (and the space is affordable for teachers who are just starting out). The yoga room has a full array of yoga props, including these aMAzing lavender eye pillows for your closing savasana.”
“The Breathing Room has that warm and fuzzy feeling once you walk in – literally! You are greeted by the warm and fuzzy Justin, the owner, and also massage therapist, whose massages make you feel like you have been nuzzled in bear paws. Also, check out their yoga classes – they are eclectic in variety and intimate in setting. Love love love The Breathing Room!”
“Walking into the Breathing Room makes you feel like you are walking into your home. There are fluffy carpets all over, and beautiful photographs of yogis in action. Justin is warm, outgoing, and overall wonderful. I can honestly say that I have never experienced such an amazing massage in my life – and I am VERY picky.”
“Having two parents who are 25+ year veterans of the massage therapy/structural bodywork field, I tend to be a very tough critic, so keep that in mind when I say that this massage was amazing — by far the best I’ve experienced in Boston.
