Purpose Yoga’s instructors know how difficult it can be to find time during a busy day for yoga’s quiet and concentration. During lunchtime three days a week, they host a 45-minute session where visitors can recharge their batteries and enjoy lunch options such as veggie or tuna wraps. At their other weekly sessions, the teaching team leads up to 60 students of all levels through power, Hatha, and hot yoga. Classes range from slow-paced beginner Hatha sessions to sunrise yoga and one-hour full-body workouts with the studio’s temperature cranked between 90 and 95 degrees.
When they aren’t deepening their visitors’ meditative states, the instructors prep the next generation of yoga gurus during a nine-month teacher-training program that explores 71 yoga poses, the Sanskrit language, anatomy, and more. After sessions, co-owner and licensed massage therapist Jessica Hardisky further relaxes muscles with massage styles such as Thai yoga, prenatal, and hot stone.
At its core, each pose assumed by a yoga practitioner has a function?whether it's elongating the back, strengthening the shoulders, or simply restoring a sense of peace. Inside Purpose Yoga's studio, a team of patient, experienced instructors teaches classes that focus on these sometimes overlooked purposes of yoga. With Purpose Yoga's diverse class schedule, students can improve their practice through Hatha, Power, and even Chair Yoga.
