Inside the 1,667-square-foot, multilevel house-turned-yoga-studio, certified instructors bring their own practices and interpretations of several yoga styles to classes for students of all skill sets. During by-demand introductory courses, teachers help students design customized practices that cater to their bodies' needs. Other group classes focus on particular disciplines, such as kundalini yoga, a combination of low-impact aerobic activity and breathing exercises that burn calories and detoxify bodies; and flow yoga, which incorporates positions that increase flexibility and tone muscles. Instructors also guide students through poses during private sessions and workshops, which include occasional retreats and a forthcoming trip to India.
Along with yoga, the healing and learning center's personnel keep visitors healthy with services such as reiki, nutritional counseling, acupuncture, and astrology. More health and beauty enhancers are stocked in Yoga Lola Studios' storefront, including organic cosmetics, aromatherapy oils, and tonic herbs from Dragon Herbs, which are often used by dragons to recuperate from knight attacks.
