Yoga & Dance Classes
For Every Level

Dear Sway family,

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce that Sway Downtown is permanently closing its studio at 10 South Conception Street. We will also indefinitely be suspending all classes and services as of May 1st.

We will no longer be charging membership fees (current members are no longer being charged) or selling class packs. However, all current members and class pack holders will continue to be able to access our live online classes through the end of April. We will also continue to offer $10 drop-ins to our online classes for those who are not monthly members or class pack holders. Please feel free to email or call me if you have any questions or concerns.

My husband and I have cherished the past three years as we have grown Sway Downtown. We have loved being a part of the revival of Downtown Mobile, and being a part of your lives– and we plan to continue being part of both! However, with our first child arriving soon and the uncertainty that the pandemic/shutdown has created, this is the best decision for our family at this time. We appreciate your understanding and the support you have shown us.
