The instructors at Experience Yoga Studios further the studio's mission to unite mind and body through signature yoga coursework. Yoga is taught alongside Pilates and cycling classes and holistic-wellness-boosting massage services. Students attend Pilates and yoga classes in a peaceful practice space where natural light streams in the windows onto burnished wood floors. Beginner-level classes cater to newbies, and instructors can modify moves to help students to work through poses at their own pace. Cycling classes meet in their own maroon-colored studio, where they recreate tough road conditions by adding resistance to mimic hills, speed for sprints, and duck crossings to test each bike’s brakes. The studio’s seven-day schedule includes morning, afternoon, and evening classes.
