Prairie Yoga's expert instructors encourage anxious bodies to improve strength, focus, and relaxation through a variety of classes held inside their spacious studio seven days a week. Standard yoga classes are offered in beginner, continuing, and intermediate sessions, allowing students of all skill levels to glean fundamentals, refine foundations, and channel their inner Buddhas. The hot Forrest-yoga-inspired class takes place in an 80–85 degree room, the scorching colloquium dedicated to the synchronicity of breath, core-strengthening poses, and instilling visions of dancing chili peppers in pupils' heads. Students can also dedicate the mind to Zen-like focus while practicing simple physical postures in the Yoga and Mediation class. Students should bring their own yoga mat and towel. A full list of classes can be viewed at Prairie Yoga's online schedule.

Upon entering the studio, the first thing students sense is the warmth. Power Yoga on Main's team of extensively trained yoga instructors leads heated Vinyasa flow classes using the Baptiste Method. The studio?s robust schedule of classes takes place inside the 90-degree studio, which helps students detoxify with cleansing sweat and bodies melt into stretches like unbaked gingerbread people. During class sessions, students of all experience levels?including those with no experience at all?flow through a continuous series of postures. Mindful breathing exercises link each posture in the series, creating a challenging workout that can confer both cardiovascular and strength-training benefits. Invigorating posture transitions hone focus, and students sculpt lean physiques with muscle-strengthening arm balances, inversions, and steel sticky-mat folding.
Inside the spacious practice room, serene shades of lavender combine with energizing plum tones and soft lighting to create a warm, inviting space for yogis to hone their mind-body practice. Abhyaasa Yoga's four certified yoga instructors bring an eclectic mix of experience and expertise to their classes, combining meditative techniques with powerful yoga postures to create a mindful, flowing style of yoga that fosters strong, flexible bodies and peaceful minds. To cater to practitioners of all experience and fitness levels, Abhyaasa Yoga hosts introductory classes in which beginners become acquainted with the basic poses, breathing techniques, and playing cards while doing a headstand, in addition to more challenging sessions such as the Rock Your Asana! Vinyasa class that gets students sweating with vigorous posture sequences set to upbeat, motivating music.
Divine Power Yoga is helmed by founder Mary Frances, who parlayed her ten-year stint of practicing yoga and her studies with famed yogi Baron Baptiste into the birth of her own studio. The soothing confines envelop students of all experience levels as they undulate through power Vinyasa yoga poses in rooms heated up to 90 degrees, building flexibility and endurance while introducing their minds, bodies, and spirits to each other through firm chakra handshakes. A smattering of classes stretch across each week, while intermittent events such as a Yoga for Two workshop or an all-day yoga boot camp help participants enhance their regular practices.
Anchored by owner and certified personal trainer Damon Burrell, Heaven and Hell Bootcamp's staff of workout wonks help clients conquer fitness goals in group boot-camp classes. With a regimen of 44 classes lasting 40?45 minutes, Heaven and Hell keeps chests heaving, heart rates thumping, and sequined leotards shimmering. The high-octane group workouts change each day, but typically feature agility training, calisthenics, cardio exercise, and core strengthening achieved by hoisting dumbbells, jumping rope, and stealing medicine balls from the nests of predatory birds of flight.
