Have you ever been to a yoga class and felt like a complete outsider? Hated to take off your socks and wear shorts? Are you flexibility challenged and think yoga is not for you? Do some yoga studios feel like a boot camp or worse yet – like some solemn torture chamber where no one laughs or smiles?
We know how you feel. Which is why we created Firefly! Firefly Yoga offers a unique yoga experience with small classes and individualized attention for those who may not be comfortable in a large studio. We welcome everyone – no matter your size, shape or physical limitations. Our goal is to make yoga accessible, fun and doable for all!
We are two small personal studios, one in convenient downtown Olympia, the other in busy downtown Lacey. @Firefly, we believe you deserve teachers who see YOU and know YOU. Give us a try!

At Firefly, you will find no snobby attitudes, no pushy adjustments, no expectations – here you can be YOU. We will respect your limitations and will honor them. We don’t care if you wear socks, we don’t care what you eat, and we sure don’t care what your politics are – just get in here and get your stretch on in our friendly, low key and fun environment!
What Is Hatha Yoga?
Hatha Yoga, sanskrit for the union (yoga) of sun (ha) and the moon (tha), is the physical practice of yoga, which is designed to align body, mind and spirit.
In a hatha yoga class, postures (called asanas), breath control (pranayama) and meditation (dhyana) are used to purify the body and mind – bringing a state of bliss and health to the practitioner.
