When M'ai Vox discovered yoga, she found peace, stillness, and a new life purpose. As the owner of Stellar Yoga—a Vinyasa-style studio—she teaches classes with diverse, flowing sequences and emphasizes the enrichment yoga brings individuals. True to Vinyasa style, the instructor cruises through poses at a relatively fast pace. This helps students build internal heat, which enhances flexibility and facilitates solidarity with coal-burning stoves.
M'ai helps students focus on yogic foundations such as proper alignment and breathing. Stellar Yoga's lineup also includes weekly deep stretch and PiYo, Pilates-yoga blend, classes. Additionally, the first Friday evening of each month, the studio holds an UnBlok party free to the public, sponsored by Manduka.
