Center Studio in the heart of White Center (between West Seattle & Burien) is an inclusive space where our community can connect. We offer All Levels of Yoga classes as well as Prenatal, Kids & Family Yoga, Workshops, and more! Our group and private mat Pilates classes will strengthen your inner core all while giving you peace of mind. To round out your fitness routine, Above the Barre combines ballet, yoga, pilates, and strength training to work your mind and body. Our fitness dance drop-in class complements your mat practice, with increased stamina, better footwork and greater flexibility – Zumba is dance ramped up for a cardio workout. If having someone else work out the kinks for you or to just simply relax, we have you covered, with two massage therapists onsite. Join us on the mat in White Center, or as some of us call it – Rat City.

About the Owner
Lonjina Verdugo (pronounced Lo-hee-na) never anticipated that yoga would become part of her daily life. In fact, exercise was a once or twice a week deal if she was lucky. A New Mexico girl raised on green chili and sunny skies, she moved to Seattle with opportunistic dreams of life as a young Graphic Design professional. She occasionally turned to yoga and pilates only as an experimental stress reliever of her new city life. Since then she has realized that with regular exercise, on and off the mat, mindful movement and its underlying lessons can change you from the inside out, as well as from the outside in.
After years of her family enjoying quality time in White Center, Lonjina realized that she could provide what all of us need so close to home – a one stop shop for our bodies craving strength, sweat, and stretch, and for our stressed, anxious, occasionally overwhelmed minds. In the Spring 2012, Lonjina launched precisely that, Center Studio in Rat City based on mindful movement, art, and community.
