Tapas is a thriving, friendly community of yoga students of all stripes. Our expert instructors offer unique sequencing, diverse styles and always positive energy! At our two locations, tapas yoga shala (Rock Island, Illinois) and tapas hot yoga (Bettendorf, Iowa) we offer options for everyone including hot yoga, all-level vinyasa classes, beginner yoga, Zen Barre, Yin Yoga & Reiki, and the only Guided Self Practice program in the Quad Cities area, teaching Ashtanga & Vinyasa Krama style yoga.

The sustained practice of yoga yields new vistas of physical health, emotional stability, and mental calm. The practice eventually provides us the opportunity to see through the workings of our own minds, to root our experience in the present moment and to simply observe, with clarity and compassion, the life process.

Why Tapas?

“I love Tapas! Evan and Kelly are wonderful teachers. At Tapas, from your first visit, you become a part of the community. Everyone is so friendly. I had no idea what Ashtanga Yoga was when I first came, but I’ve been hooked since my first class!”

Why Tapas?

I love hot yoga here! I have been coming for years now and it never gets boring because each instructor is unique.
