The instructors at All Life is Yoga take their studio's title seriously. They teach Purna Yoga, a discipline that encompasses not just movement, but an entire lifestyle. This holistic approach combines classes with meditation, philosophy, and even diet—there are Indian cooking classes and cleanse programs that coincide with the teachings in the studio.
Yoga sessions accommodate all skill levels with Level 1 and All-Levels classes. There are also themed classes such as Wake Up, an energizing morning class, and Unwind, an evening class that prepares students to go to sleep more effectively than sprinkling sand in their eyes while they're in child's pose. Additionally, instructor Rutu Chaudhar administers yoga therapy to clients with injuries or ailments, ranging from hip replacements to Fibromyalgia.
At Agni Power Yoga, instructors test the physical limits of experienced practitioners and beginners alike. During classes, teachers weave postures and breathing exercises into a seamless yet rigorous practice. According to the website, students should "expect to sweat."

Under the tutelage of Stillwater's expert instructors, fledgling yogis begin to master the basics of Iyengar yoga in group sessions that bolster flexibility, balance, and overall well-being. On a mat-covered wooden floor populated by up to a dozen classmates, pupils learn critical yoga techniques such as proper breathing, maintaining correct posture, and ignoring the annoying calls of telemarketers yelling through the windows. Early training involves a preponderance of standing asanas (poses) that hone muscles as well as toe-touching skills, and all Iyengar movements stress the importance of bodily alignment. During sessions, sutra squires also put to use yoga props—an innovation unique to Iyengar yoga—such as blankets, blocks, straps, and pillows.
