General Studio Information
20 Years and Still Breathing.
We begin in 2001, in a tiny sublet space in Victoria Park. Karen G was the only teacher and became known for her accessible Ashtanga Vinyasa classes. One year later, we moved across the street. We added more teachers and Yoga styles, workshops and Teacher Trainings. expanding in 2009 to the entire top floor. 2017 we moved to Flagler Village and started the HIVE. In November of 2019 we were invited into in a unique, tranquil garden setting in Wilton Manors, at the Wilton Yard. That is where you will find us now. We love keeping it small, boutique and intimate. This allows us to give YOU lots of attention; It is what we do best.
“Authentic”, “Grounded”, “The Real Deal” “Friendly and Welcoming” : that is what some of our students say about Red Pearl.
Ground floor location. Non Heated. Doors are opened 15 minutes before class begins so we can get our space ready for you. Get more mat time by signing up in advance on the MINDBODY app. Pay on app too!
We believe in Yoga for Everyone.

New to Yoga? Seasoned Yogi? Which Class for You?
We are a family of skilled and unique instructors who create a welcoming, nurturing Yoga experience for all. Our weekly schedule features a variety of classes for all levels. We invite modifications and challenges in all classes, therefore we do not have “class levels”. Our classes offer challenge in the way of pace and/or intensity. So for you Beginners or those working with injuries or healing from surgeries, etc, we suggest our slower classes to start: Gentle and Yin. From there you can move to a faster paced Vinyasa or Ashtanga. All are welcome in all classes – Work as hard as you want or reel it in; The most advanced Yogis know when to chill out.
Please see our “Classes” page for descriptions of our classes.
We do not heat our classes.
The studio warms up fast -it’s FLORIDA! So you will get a good sweat. We do have some climate control and use it when necessary-but it won’t be cold-promise! It’s more about relieving some of that intense humidity from outside and filtering the air that you are breathing.
We love to support artists in our community. Stock up on locally made jewelry, snacks,ceramics, soaps, oils, and candles. We also sell quality yoga mats, blocks and other yoga accessories.
