Kindness Yoga owner Patrick Harrington is dedicated to establishing a thriving yogic community at both of his studio locations, where yoga practitioners of all skill levels flock to achieve physical invigoration and mental centering. Kindness Yoga’s dozens of instructors share their limb-stretching expertise and breathing techniques with visitors during classes that focus on a wide array of styles, such as gentle Hatha, challenging Vinyasa, and sweat-inducing Kinda-Hot, which is practiced in a heated room. The veteran yogis also host extended workshops that thoroughly discuss themes including prenatal yoga and hoop dancing.
In the sunlight that streams in through the floor-to-ceiling windows at pH7 Pilates, students bend and fold into challenging positions, all for the health of their body. Expert instructors meander through the group, adjusting postures and doling out encouragement as the students feel their core muscles working. These students are practicing a classic form of Pilates, using their body weight, Reformer machines, or giant pet parrots as resistance. The classes offer challenges for all skill levels, and include mat Pilates classes, yoga classes, and jump board cardio classes.
Within iLiv Yoga’s heated studio, expert instructors lead students of all levels through six sweat-filled varieties of yoga classes.
