Urban Yoga's knowledgeable, passionate instructors bestow wisdom and individualized attention upon students of all skill levels during an eclectic mix of classes held seven days a week. The Slow Flow class helps beginners and overexcited river rapids hone their technique with basic Vinyasa poses that focus on alignment and breathing. More advanced yogis can harness the soothing power of soft lighting and music to relax during Yin Yang classes. Like a rigorous seminar in the Village People's "YMCA" dance, the Ashtanga class challenges students to perform a predetermined sequence of poses, beginning with 10 sun salutations before moving on to one of six main series and a finishing resting pose. Blossoming body benders can splay themselves out on their own yoga mats or rent one for an additional $2.
Two studios populate Urban Yoga's 4,000-square-foot space, replete with locker rooms and a retail boutique. Exposed cement-block walls support 20-foot-tall ceilings towering above glossy wooden floors in one studio, while the other room's deep green walls cultivate an atmosphere more intimate than getting a palm reading from your own shadow. After arriving from the nearby Osborn light-rail stop or navigating vehicles through the free parking garage, clients can head to the complimentary tea bar for pre-workout hydration.
