branches yoga studio

For a Healthy Mind, Body and Spirit.

Branches Yoga Studio will be forever grateful for the wonderful community that has become family to us.  Regrettably, in October of 2022, our sacred space was sold to a new owner and we were forced to close our doors permanently.

what our clients says

Every time I’m heading to classes at this studio my heart smiles. I love everything about it: teachers, location, community. It is a charging station, place to start, and a place to rest. It seems that teachers always know the right thing to say, aiming right at the heart through the breath and body awareness. I love you, Branches, and I’m very excited to see you evolve

Anastasia Client

The owners took over the prior space of Yogasmith in downtown Portsmouth, above Tuscan Market. Great location and they have made some fantastic changes already. Same instructors but cleaner, neater and apparently more good things coming. Love the early morning classes!

R. Gunner Client

I practice yoga regularly. Moving back home in a pandemic, my practice changed and I had to work through an injury. Branches has filled the void I was missing. Branches Yoga, formerly known as Yogasmith, is located in downtown Portsmouth. Branches is an inviting all levels studio. Props and blocks available; Covid safe. Morning and evening classes! Check them out!

Mike Client

Branches Yoga Studio is home to me. This past summer, I made a commitment to practice weekly yoga in this space now known as Branches Yoga Studio. I was delighted to know that a fellow practitioner invested in maintaining this unique, and sacred space within downtown Portsmouth. The membership rates support accessibility. Instructors are experienced, and offer something more than just exercise. My favorite phrase as a practitioner is to “take your yoga of the matt and out into the world”. In other words, practicing yoga is a commitment to self, the community, and the greater good. Branches Yoga Studio is the embodiment of that philosophy. And, that is why I recommend you to become a part of this inclusive community.
