About Us

You're always on the go. Us too.

We believe that yoga is for you - no matter where you are. We created Argosy Yoga as a way to share our practice with our constantly growing community. We can't be contained by four walls and we don't believe you should be either. Argosy isn't a studio. Rather, it's the way we strive to live our lives - free, open, & connected to each other as well as the natural beauty around us. Whoever you are and wherever you're from, you're welcome here. Come out of the box with us.

Paige Derouin

Early in her career as a high school biology teacher, Paige began trying yoga as a method of self-care and stress relief. She quickly realized how big of an impact a consistent yoga practice could have on overall wellness, and wanted to help others experience the immense benefits she was gaining from spending time on her mat. She completed her 200-hour teacher training in 2017 and has been sharing her yoga with the Raleigh community ever since. As an instructor, Paige loves that she is able to combine her passion for mindful movement with her knowledge of human biology and anatomy. Because everybody is unique, Paige strives to create classes that empower students of all ages to find shapes that build strength, create space, and feel great - regardless of how they look.

Noah Trimner

Early into Noah's journey for practicing Yoga, he knew he wanted to share this with others, especially athletes and Crossfitters who don't get enough mobility training. Noah completed his 200-hour training through 2020 while renovating Argosy with Paige. He is also the mastermind behind all of the cold brew concoctions on draft with Argosy and works with local businesses and roasters to bring truly unique drinks to Argosy's taps.

Outdoor Yoga? What should I know?
 

We are so excited you're joining us for class! If you're new to outdoor yoga or just yoga in general, here are some things that it might be helpful to know. Remember, the most important thing to bring is an open heart and mind. The rest is just suggestions!

The Basics

Our yoga classes are vinyasa-style flows. They range between 45 and 60 minutes and are designed to be a mixture of stretch and strength. Many options for poses are always offered, so you can enjoy your practice whether you're a beginner or an expert.

What to Bring

Bring a yoga mat! When practicing outside, it is also nice to place a towel or picnic blanket under your mat for any poses where you leave your mat a little bit. It can also be useful in keeping your mat dry. This is completely optional, but may enhance your experience.

What to Wear

It's most important to be comfy while you move. Check the weather before you leave home! In cooler months, layers are recommended as we do heat up quite a bit while moving. We also recommend wearing sunscreen whenever you practice outside.

Extras

We suggest bringing a full water bottle for breaks during class. You may also want a small hand towel with you on particularly warm days. We encourage you to bring any props you like to use while practicing - blocks, blankets, or anything that you know you love
