In 1998, Studio 206 opened with a mission: to educate the public in a new understanding of fitness. Charlottesville’s first mind-body fitness center, Studio 206 was founded by Chris Friedman, a Black Belt Nia instructor and Alexander Technique teacher. The studio’s sprung maple floor, high ceiling, and natural light create a beautiful setting for Nia, yoga, and other mind-body practices. The atmosphere is personal and welcoming. Located in downtown Charlottesville, Studio 206 offers Nia, yoga for adults and children, and dance classes seven days a week at a wide variety of times. Workshops are scheduled regularly with resident teachers and visiting teacher/trainers. Individual sessions in Alexander Technique, and private Nia and Yoga are available by appointment. Studio 206 has a staff of well-trained and gifted teachers and practitioners, they are all dedicated to helping you create health and well-being for today as well as for the future.
