Atma Center's classes reflect the techniques of Satyananda yoga, a combination of classic yoga traditions adroitly adapted to accommodate the needs of modern and futuristic persons, no matter their age or fitness level. It is also a teacher-training program, so you can be sure Atma's highly trained instructors have accumulated many a hour of individualized in-class wisdom and successfully squeezed through the awfully tight yoga-instructor rites of passage (pass-throughable by only the nimblest and most compassionate of bodies).
As one of Cleveland's first Vinyasa yoga studios, Evolution Yoga Studios & Boutique promotes a personal yoga experience in an eco-conscious studio setting. Founder and director Sandy Gross embraces mindfulness and meditation in each of the studio's array of sinew-stretching classes. Beginners nurture alignment during introductory technique and practice sessions, advancing to heated Vinyasa classes that expel sweat. Bodies build pristine core muscles during 50-minute Pilates sessions, and restorative yoga focuses on the breath in tandem with subtle bends and twists. The studio's schedule hosts multiple sessions daily for all skill levels.
Inspiral Motion offers mat classes in yoga, Pilates, and GYROKINESIS, with instructors from the top schools in the country. The center's yoga mat classes are rooted in the Vinyasa yoga discipline, a flowing style with asanas, or postures, linked together by verbal cues. Pilates students just starting out are introduced to the fundamentals of breathing, flexibility, and pelvis stability in their quests to become top Pelvis impersonators, while advanced practitioners of the Pilatic arts can discover how to Boomerang, Jackknife, and Shoulder Bridge with the best. In GYROKINESIS, students will stir their senses through a dry-scrubbing body massage, jumpstart the body’s energies through a series of movements, and further invigorate the body with mat exercises.
