When they met in kindergarten more than 35 years ago, Tracey Lanham and Heather Lindemann sensed they were kindred spirits, forming a fast friendship and a lasting bond. Finding themselves ever more drawn to yoga with each passing year, they launched Mudra Yoga Studio (formerly Pearl Street Yoga), and set about building a space where anyone could come to experience the transformative power of the practice. The newly rechristened and remodeled Mudra Yoga Studio continues to offer a safe haven for body benders and a safe house for any exiled member of Gumby's gang. Experienced instructors lead a cornucopia of classes within the studio's friendly confines, ranging from traditional yoga to specialized classes for expectant mothers and those suffering from injuries.

Several of these instructors have more than 30 years of experience. Iyengar yoga focuses on precision in physical alignment in order to bring the body and mind into balance. To accommodate all levels of familiarity with yoga and the Iyengar style, the staff offers three levels of classes, as well as advanced specialty workshops such as Yoga for Back Care and How to Hustle Someone in a Game of Twister.
Boulder-based exercises of yesteryear help build broadsword-wielding strength, but they do little for shimmying into a cramped elevator or scurrying up palm trees at the mall.
