Convenient PDX Location

Convenient PDX Location

Firelight Yoga is conveniently located in North Portland just west of I-5, (on the corner of N. Killingsworth St. and N. Interstate Ave.) The MAX train and the bus both stop right outside our front door! Parking is all free, street parking in the neighborhood. If you are driving, please allow yourself plenty of time to navigate traffic and find your parking spot so that you can arrive to class on time. Bike racks are available in front of, and at the rear of, our building.

The Portland Metro area rests on traditional village sites of the Multnomah, Wasco, Cowlitz, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Bands of Chinook, Tualatin, Kalapuya, Molalla, and many other tribes who made their homes along the Columbia River creating communities and summer encampments to harvest and use the plentiful natural resources of the area” (Portland Indian Leaders Roundtable, 2018). We want to acknowledge the land upon which our studio occupies and thank the original caretakers of this land.

What People are Saying

Firelight yoga has made such a profound difference in my life since I first found them when they opened over 5 years ago.

I signed up for my first class when I was injured from running and needed something to keep me active. Since then, yoga has gone from a random thing I tried to something I need in my daily routine. I’ve become more confident, grounded, and subsequently also have arm muscles for the first time in my life. I’ve since tried studios in many different cities throughout the world yet still love the feeling and comfort of returning to Firelight. EVERY teacher and staff member here is welcoming, friendly, and caring. There is absolutely no judgement. The way they’ve handled Covid makes me feel proud to be a member here. So thankful for this space and all the good vibes they’ve put out into the world!
