World Peace Yoga thrives on a sense of community. Through the movements performed in each class, instructors aim to create a feeling of connection. They believe that yoga allows its practitioners to tap into reservoirs of love and empathy and that by healing oneself, each individual is closer to healing the world. This philosophy seeps into every aspect of the studio. It starts in the studio’s roots—a diverse band of instructors who infuse their certified teaching methods with rich, varied personal experiences—and branches out to each student with sundry class offerings such as spirit-energizing Laughter Yoga and body-toning Pilates mat classes. World Peace Yoga is a part of World Peace Earth, a foundation dedicated to creating change both on a global scale and within individual habits and mindsets. The foundation aims to foster a more peaceful world through small actions such as sustainable eating habits and larger gestures such as creating a sanctuary for exploited horses.
The experienced team of instructors lead both novices and seasoned yogis through sequences of poses in Hot 60 or 75-minute sessions or creative Yoga Flow with Music courses. In addition to yoga, the studio hosts Pilates, Cycle Alive, and BarreAlive workouts. The studio holds 51 classes per week, 15 of which are for beginners.
Students gather in Clear Wellness's practice spaces in small groups, focusing all attention on their instructor, who bends and curves limbs gracefully while demonstrating exercises with enormous muscle-toning potential, enhancing every gesture with directions to guide attendees' movements. Each workout blends elements from different disciplines, including Vinyasa- and Iyengar-style yoga, Pilates, TRX suspension training, and reiki, creating hybrid workouts demanding vigorous physical exertion and sharp mental focus. By limiting each class's attendance to four students, instructors can monitor every individual's form and posture, providing slight hands-on adjustments to correct any missteps. Outside of the practice room, staff members stock the shelves with TZone skincare products, which help to reverse the signs of aging with antioxidant-rich balms, collagen-building formulas, and millions of microscopic babies to fill pores.
Though the contraction "it's" was originally invented by disheveled British men to herald the arrival of flying circuses, today's deal uses it to herald something completely different. For $25, new clients get five yoga classes at It's Yoga (a $55 value). Bring your Groupon to the studio above the Ludlow Garage on Ludlow Avenue and attain the same limber happiness that runs through the branches of your happiest miniature bonsai trees.

Modo Yoga's signature 40-posture hot-yoga series blends standing poses with prone poses—such as corpse pose—on the studio's cork floors. That doesn't mean the classes are all identical, though. Some encourage a meditative silence, while others focus on flowing transitions between postures. Each instructor brings a personal flair to teaching, too, often setting a session-specific goal, such as building students' awareness of their breath or strengthening their core muscles.
At You Do Yoga, students of all levels execute elasticizing endeavors under green plants, colorful artwork, and the guidance of skilled instructors who preside over more than 10 classes. Shimmy into Core Yoga's uptempo ab-sculpting spree on Wednesday evenings, or twist away Friday mornings during Early Bird Vinyasa, which focuses on yogic philosophies about change. Each class lasts 60–90 minutes and includes mats, standard equipment, and bottomless karma.
