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.

Meet the Founders of FLY
Firelight Yoga was founded by best friends, Holly Bussmus and Jessica Bartley, and first opened in January of 2015. We are grateful for the opportunity to own and operate our independent, small-business while providing our community with a beautiful and safe space to practice yoga and fitness classes together. We look forward to welcoming you into our FLY family and to be able to practice alongside you. We could not do this without you all and without the support from our amazing team of employees!
We offer classes in a variety of styles and intensities led by teachers from different training backgrounds, with each instructor contributing to a collective energy that makes Firelight Yoga unique.
We work directly with you to understand your company’s specific goals and curate an individualized program tailored to the needs of you and your team members.
I did the two week intro and signed up right away for a monthly membership. I’ve been telling all of my friends about FLY.
Firelight blew all that out of the water; they make everyone feel welcome and safe to practice where they are at with no pretension. Their zoom classes have been life savers during lockdown. I have to give special shout outs to Chelsea, Wendy and Haley M, who all have such different styles, but make you feel as if you are in such safe hands, and that you can do more than you ever thought you could.
The atmosphere, the people, and the great community has made all the difference between a so-so experience and an exceptional one. During Covid, things have obviously changed but because of their commitment to adapting to the current situation, I have been able to maintain a great practice. Their livestream classes have saved my sanity; trying to homeschool a 10 year old and deal with all the stresses isn’t easy! I’m so happy to recommend Firelight to anyone wanting to practice yoga.
