For more than 15 years, seasoned yoga instructor and teacher trainer Katherine Austin has been educating others on how to incorporate yoga and its many benefits into their daily lives. She’s joined by a team of skilled instructors, who imbue their knowledge of Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Kundalini methods onto students of any age and ability. Daily classes range from gentle yoga for beginners and senior citizens to more advanced sessions that challenge students to go deeper into their postures. Prenatal classes also aim to lower stress and increase flexibility for moms-to-be, and the classes have been showcased on Fox 2 News. Along with teaching students the benefits of yoga, Karma Yoga's staff helps their community thrive by donating a percentage of each class rate to Detroit's Urban Farming.

At Yoga Shelter, you won't hear esoteric chants echoing through the halls or meditation music reverberating from rock-shaped speakers. That's because founder Eric Paskel wants to make yoga accessible for all students, whether they're searching for inner peace or a more toned bod. Hip hop, dance, soul, chill, contemporary, and classic music accompanies all classes, ranging from Yoga Rocks, which focuses on sequenced postures, to Fusion, a blend of faster- and slower-moving classes. There is no hierarchy of classes; each 60- to 75-minute session is open to all skill levels. As Paskel himself puts it on his about page, ?What's different about us is that we admit we have issues, we know we have work to do?if you can relate to that, you'll love this place.?

A team of nationally certified trainers, which collectively boasts backgrounds in personal training, fitness, and the military, challenges students to set goals and strive to achieve them during one-on-one sessions and group classes. Within a 3,500-square-foot facility lined with rows of free weights, exercise balls, and chin-up bars, they’ll motivate students in boot camp, self-defense courses, or group-training sessions with a back-and-forth dialogue not unlike those in scenes from Rocky and Ernest Goes to the UFC Championship. The trainers can also map out programs to address and strengthen specific muscle groups for personal training or can engineer sports-focused regimens that improve power and coordination in games such as soccer, basketball, and golf. Exercises that incorporate Bosu-ball work and heavy-rope training prepare clients for police and fire exams by improving mental focus and techniques for unwrinkling uniforms, such as dropping grand pianos on them.
