Welcome to the BUDDHIO TM, a gathering place to nourish Spokane's creative arts community. It is also home to South Perry Yoga and other entities, whose collective mission supports your journey toward a healthy lifestyle. We endeavor to foster your unique strengths and potential as you build a strong yet resilient foundation upon which to navigate the waters of life experience. (For more about the ongoing preservation of this historical space, please see our "Events" page)
Here you will find instructors with a broad knowledge base to teachings, having completed 200-500 hours of training in accordance with Yoga Alliance standards. (Read bios by clicking "instructors" tab.) Many have studied with teachers certified in the Iyengar and Anusara traditions of Hatha Yoga. With principles grounded in safe structural alignment, whether a novice or seasoned practitioner, you will find classes tailored for the 'Yoga Newbie' and beyond. Our dynamic classes bring a breath of eclectic creativity from various yoga styles and movement arts, while deep rest and renewal are supported through gentler offerings including Restorative Yoga, Yin, i-Rest Yoga NidraR and guided meditation. NIA, Soul Motion and Ecstatic Dance offer empowering movement, infused with soul-stirring music. (See class details via"class descriptions" tab)
Therapeutic Yoga* & Thai Yoga Therapy* (*disclaimer: credentials non-Yoga Alliance supported) sessions are available privately with licensed, board certified health professionals, bringing an integration of medical training to their yoga care plans. Since 2013, UW/WSU Medicine has partnered with South Perry Yoga as a non-clinical selective site for 1st & 2nd year medical students to further understanding of yoga and meditation as personal wellness strategies and therapeutic modalities. Inquiries regarding CEU supported medical conference presentations and corporate wellness programs are welcome.
Acupuncture and physical therapy services are also available on site with licensed professionals. Acupuncturist Jessica Sleight, LAc, M.OM, Dipl.Ac. (see jessicasleight.com)

Our studio home, fondly known as the BUDDHIO TM, is located mid-way within the 9th & Perry block, nestled amid the vibrant tree lined streets of the historic South Perry District.
Heading west: I-90 exit 2nd avenue, turn left on Arthur, left on Newark which becomes Perry St. You may also take the Altamont exit, head south, wind up the hill to 9th, then west to Perry Street. The BUDDHIO is on the east side of Perry, directly across from the Shop & Title Nine.
Heading east: I-90 exit at Division St, continue east along 4th Ave approximately 1 mile, then turn right on Arthur, and follow the curve east on Newark into the Perry District.
There is plenty of free, well lit street parking and a large parking area at 10th & Perry next to Grant Park and Title Nine.
Mats, props, and changing facilities are available, although we encourage you to bring along your own mat. We also offer a variety of Manduka Mats, props and BUDDHIO TM t-shirts for purchase.
Dress in clothing which allows some stretch and ease of movement. Shoes and personal belongings may be stored in visibly secure areas within the studio.
Our studio is a comfortable 70-72F~ a bit warmer in the summer, and for our Vinyasa Flow classes.
Please arrive 10 minutes early, with a 'not-so-full stomach' and an open, curious mind. We ask that you complete a brief, confidential waiver which alerts our teachers to any specific health concerns.
If you are late, we respectfully ask that you wait in the entry until we have finished our opening meditation.
