Hilton Head

Jiva Yoga Center

Jiva Yoga Center is Hilton Head’s premier yoga studio and massage center. Jiva was born of a desire to create community and sanctuary for the folks of and visiting Hilton Head Island and the surrounding area.

Jiva has been a yoga fixture on Hilton Head for many years and expanded into their new facility late in 2010. This fantastic space includes two beautiful studios, four exquisite private massage rooms, two clean, contemporary restrooms (one with full shower facility), and one well stocked boutique

and store featuring all of your favorite yoga goodies.

Clearly, owners Jean & Ken Rioux dedicated much love and attention to the establishment of this great yoga studio. All of the art, paint colors, carpet, lighting and furniture have been carefully selected to enhance the experience of every yogi (or yogini) who enters. Even the cubbies were lovingly designed and hand crafted  by Ken Rioux! Visiting this studio makes me happy and it will make you happy also.

The instructors at Jiva are all very experienced and completely dedicated to their practice. This dedication is evidenced by the fact that even weekday morning classes are often at capacity! There is a subtle sense of quiet confidence and a beautiful welcoming energy at Jiva Yoga Center. If you live in the Hilton Head area you are probably already aware of this local gem. However, if you are new to yoga or are visiting Hilton Head, please do yourself a favor and visit Jiva soon! You will leave refreshed, renewed and feeling great.
