The sagacious instructors at Dahn Yoga New Mexico facilitate the betterment of flexibility, strength, and the elusive mind-body connection during morning and evening classes. Dahn-style yoga melds the ancient wisdom of ki-energy training with modern breathing postures to unlock inner peace and sweep up brain clutter caused by the daily stress of always having to find Waldo. Warm-up maneuvers awaken muscles before 30–40 minutes of breathing, stretching, core practice, and meditation—including a signature brain-wave vibration technique that calibrates mental and physical energies. Cool-down exercises ease the body back into quotidian functionality, and a 10-minute teatime invites socialization among participants while bolstering pinkie endurance.
Chronic pain in her neck and lower back brought Melanie St. Georges into her first yoga class. She walked in stressed, tired, and afraid to fail. Despite that fear, she dove into her first class, and as she continued to practice daily, not only did she find herself pain-free, but she felt much more relaxed and balanced.
Today, Melanie leads her own team of dedicated instructors in the hopes of making yoga accessible so that others may discover its healing powers. Utilizing the Barkan Method of hot yoga—a variant of Hatha yoga—their classes aim to strengthen and stretch the entire muscular system while relieving mental stress. The Barkan Method is just one of several different styles of yoga Blissful Spirit teaches. Heated air helps the body flush out toxins while deepening stretches and staving off injuries caused by a recent move into Aladdin’s lamp. When they’re not teaching yoga, instructors help clients boost their core strength with Pilates sessions that take place in a moderately heated environment. Blissful Spirits also offers daily donation-based daycare services during select hours.
Twenty-six poses. 90 minutes. 105 degrees. This is what yogis can expect from a hot—or Bikram—yoga class at Bikram Yoga of Albuquerque, a studio that follows the teachings of the practice’s founder, Bikram Choudhury. They keep the studio to such a high temperature in order to help students sweat out toxins and to further their flexibility. As for yoga itself, it helps practitioners achieve a sense of mental and physical well-being that is said to strengthen determination, self-control, faith, concentration, and patience. In addition to the east-side location, which has been around for ten years, Bikram Yoga of Albuquerque invites yogis to its second location on the west side.
Owner and instructor Julia Mozley spent more than a decade investigating anti-aging methods, natural healing, and movement of energy through the body before discovering the marriage of all three in yoga. Investigating yoga resulted in a new passion, which prompted her to open Yoga by Julia, enabling her to share yoga with others.
Julia and her staff of six yoga and one Zumba instructor fill the week with a variety of levels of yoga class, from beginner to advanced, some sessions tailored to specific goals. The friendly teachers are knowledgeable, supportive, have undergone advanced training, and strive to make all classes fun and approachable. They supplement their schedule with the core-reforming regimens of Pilates and Zumba, a cardio-based dance exercise program that's safer than tangoing with a barbell. All classes take place within their hardwood-floored studio, amid the sparkling light of sunshine and the bright glow of paper lanterns.
