Tranquility unravels itself around practitioners as they enter Two Hearts Yoga, where students come from all around the city to practice alongside founder and 12-year teaching veteran Georgina O’Farrill within her family-inclusive practice. Georgina leads parents and their children through an accommodating schedule of Anusara-based classes designed to strengthen both body and mind, such as pre- and postnatal classes, which provide modified sessions that diminish stress and prepare the body for battling storks when the big day comes. Children can tag along during Baby and Me classes, and older sets of little ones can learn to breathe easier during kids' sessions. The studio's large walls and open hardwood floors further give moms the space to stretch freely and babies the room to practice their favorite dance moves.
