The instructors at The Practice Yoga & Wellness come from diverse backgrounds: one is a classically trained symphony flutist, another is a massage therapist, and still another is a public-relations professional. But all of them are united by a common passion for yoga. On the hardwood floors of their spacious studio, the highly trained yogis guide students of all skill levels through a curriculum of classes including Vinyasa flow, hot yoga, and restorative yoga. During their yoga/core fusion classes, the teachers combine yoga asanas with functional training to strengthen core muscles and generate inner calm and balance. Outside the classroom, the studio's onsite shop stocks yoga essentials ranging from professional mats and clothing to soothing audio recordings of Gandhi reading from his book, My Favorite Whale Sounds.
