Welcome to yogaROCKS, Lahti's premier destination for climbing and yoga since 2010!
We have two locations in Lahti. At our main location, Saksalankatu 26, 15100 Lahti , we offer indoor bouldering and daily yoga classes. We're just 1.4 km from the city center (15 min. walk). There is plenty of free parking at Saksalankatu and buses 32H, 7 and 2 stop at a bus stop (Saksalankatu 104069) right in front of yogaROCKS.
Our second location is yoga only -- a gorgeous boutique studio with retail shop located right in the heart of Lahti at Aleksanterinkatu 1, in the first courtyard at the lake end of the main street. (scroll down for more yoga info below)
We have a good sized indoor bouldering area with about 400m2 of climbing walls, filled with routes that are continually updated to challenge climbers of all skill levels. Bouldering it's a fun and addictive style of climbing with routes that go about 4-5 meters high. The floors are padded and no other equipment is used other than shoes (which we rent). We also have a functional fitness area, moonboard and number of training elements. Welcome to drop in and climb any time during opening hours. No reservation is required to climb, unless you plan to come with a large group or want to book a climbing guide. Even if you're brand new to bouldering, most people find it easy to start climbing without extra guidance. Our front desk person will give you little orientation. From September through May, opening hours for climbing are Mon-Friday 13:00-21:00, Saturday 9:00-17, Sunday 12-17. Summer hours may vary (please check the blog on our website or facebook page).
CLIMBING PRICES: Adult, 10€, Student/Child 8€, shoe rental 3€. We also have a special intro offer that gives you a month of unlimited climbing with free shoe rental and an hour long climbing lesson with our instructor for 49,90€.
There is no time limit for climbing. Children from about 6 years old are usually big enough to reach the holds and will enjoy climbing. Children under 14 need to be with an adult supervising.
What else? We also run a popular children's climbing school and do awesome climbing birthday parties. We host corporate events and offer outdoor/rope climbing instruction and ice climbing instruction as weather allows.
We offer daily classes in many styles ... everything from cleansing hot yoga, to powerful vinyasa flow, meditative hatha, soothing yin yoga, and some fun stuff including aerial yoga, barre and kettlebell classes. Our yoga teachers are some of the top teachers in the area. If you're looking for classes taught in English (with a little Finnish sprinkled in ;-)) find classes by yogaROCKS founder Leta LaVigne. But all the teachers understand and speak English.

Which classes are good for beginners? Hot Yoga 1 will be a strong/challenging/hot practice that will build familiarity with many postures and grow your strength and stamina. Yin yoga is another favorite - totally different - it will consist of long, passive stretches done mostly sitting for a very deep and restorative result. Yin and Yang and Hatha yoga are also good for beginners. Yin and Yang combines more active practice with some of the longer asanas. Hatha is simple and profound with more emphasis on breathing exercises and meditation.
