The Confluence Approach
Confluence is an indoor cycling and yoga studio in Cleveland Heights in the heart of Coventry Village.
As experienced cyclists, “We bring the outdoors inside.” Taught differently from a typical spin class, our aim is to encourage and develop strong and proper form on a bicycle. We ride with intensity and authenticity in our indoor cycling classes to create strength and endurance. Similarly, our certified yoga instructors strive to bring optimal alignment to the mat for a safe, eye-opening experience.
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The confluence of an energetic indoor cycle ride with an introspective yoga practice creates a synergistic bliss not achieved by a single activity.
Now let’s get ready to move!
A few of the many different classes we offer
Confluence: Where activities meet. We begin these combination classes with an inspired and intense bike ride that conjures images and efforts similar to outdoor bike riding, finishing with a mindful yoga practice. The confluence of indoor cycling and yoga creates a rejuvenating mind/body awareness.
Confluence Pilates: Another concept for your whole body. Ride like the wind for 45 minutes on the bike before your 30-minute mat-based Pilates workout. The combination will improve your hear, flexibility and agility. Discover a sleek and toned body after this class!
Slow Burn Vinyasa Flow: This light-hearted and fun 60-minute vinyasa-based class is designed to challenge, yet give you room to explore and have fun as you journey through your yoga practice. All levels welcome!
Intro to Indoor Cycling OR Yoga: Join us for a basic and instructional introduction to indoor cycling OR yoga. Learn the most important and fundamental aspects of either activity to ensure you are optimizing your experience. Offered the third Saturday of each month.
Gift Cards are available in specific class pack pricing, or any custom amount.
Need a reset? Join us for Yoga Nidra, sometimes called yogic sleep. First, we’ll learn about the background and benefits of this ancient art. Then it’s time to unwind, rest, and restore!

Yoga in the Wild
Let’s explore the wonders of nature off trail, in the wild. We’ll meet at a trail head approximately 30 miles away, hike about 40 minutes and enjoy our practice in a peaceful wooded area bordered by a picturesque stream and waterfall. After, we’ll dig enjoy a small picnic. Participants should be prepared with a good set of shoes for trail walking, water, and their mat. We’ll cover the rest.
In order to maintain as much solitude as possible, the directions to the trail head for this event will be provided upon registration.
$35, lunch included
