Led by founder Sandy Adler, certified Anusara instructor, Freedom Yoga's instructors lead classes throughout the week for both beginners and more advanced students. Instructors tap into their experience, skill, and dedication to help students develop a safe and meaningful yoga practice, searching within themselves and their pupils to align spiritual centers, increase strength, and boost flexibility. Rather than using intense exercises or giant marionette strings to affect the mind and body from the outside, Anusara's poses originate from within the body, using deliberate breath and movement as a form of meditation to hone the mind while helping the body increase its strength and balance.
At Sweaty Ganesh Yoga studio, yoga serves as a transformative journey for every person who enters. All students, no matter their experience or skill level, are recognized for their current ability and empowered to test limitations of strength and flexibility. Along with beginners’ hot yoga classes, held throughout the week, the studio also holds classes for kids 6–12. Workshops help students perfect bow poses, backward bends, forward folds, and stretching postures. The fundamental approach teaches strength and flexibility while the postures test balance.
Eugene Yoga's team of yoga instructors builds a community of holistic wellness-seekers with a robust and diverse lineup of 61 Hatha-based yoga classes, which take place in two rooms. Inexperienced students can take sticky mats for a test drive during Gentle yoga 1 classes that walk them through fundamental poses while emphasizing deep-breathing techniques that hone concentration. More advanced students can try Power Flow, which features a strengthening flow of postures designed to build muscle and coordination. Women can hone their practice during ladies-only sessions that promote strong bodies and self-confidence in a noncompetitive atmosphere. In addition to focusing on safe and sustainable yoga for all members of the community, yogis also sell premium mats and props, as well as clothing and gifts from local vendors.
At Everyday People Yoga, students unroll their mats onto bamboo floors in a spacious and tranquil studio. Skilled instructors lead a variety of classes, ranging from Vinyasa and zen yoga to gentle yoga, meditation, and Ashtanga yoga. While the classes work to boost strength and flexibility, they can also help students build self-awareness with the body, both internally and externally.
Kipsters Gymnastics, Dance & Fitness keeps all 11,000 square feet of its facility humming with activity. In Gym A, older kids and adults bounce on eight personal trampolines and tumble across gymnastic beams and mats, while younger gymnasts practice on the pintsized trampoline and rings in Gym B. Safety-minded instructors guide dancers of all abilities through ballet, jazz, and hip-hop classes amid two dance rooms. A toy-filled playroom keeps siblings entertained as their brothers and sisters participate in tumbling, cheer, gymnastics, and trampoline classes in the main gym. The playroom's two viewing windows also let parents keep an eye on all their kids at once, eliminating the need for stuffed animal informants.
Kipsters' year-round classes and spacious facility aren't just for kids; parents can hook into the center's free WiFi or enjoy an adult beginning ballet and hip-hop classes for students 15 years and older. As the ultimate gift to caretakers, Kipsters presents weekly Parents' Survival Nights, which free up four hours of uninterrupted date time on Friday nights.
