  • You and the Mat
    Sometimes, it's impossible to keep all of the peacefulness in one place. Such was the case for the yoga instructors behind You and the Mat / Piedmont School of Yoga, which recently expanded their harmonious empire to include a brand new studio in Oakland's East Bay. Their expansion also helped preserve a local legacy, rescuing some of the most distinguished instructors of the venerable Piedmont Yoga Studio from disbandment. These include Piedmont co-founder Richard Rosen, who joins senior instructors including Leslie Howard, JoAnn Lyons, and Yoko Yoshikawa on a team sporting multiple decades of shared experience. Here, inside two 1,200 square foot practice rooms, these seasoned instructors lead students through yoga and meditation classes calibrated for every experience and ability level. Whether they're relaxing in the flickering glow of Candlelight Yoga, developing awareness and attention to detail with Annie Carpenter's SmartFLOW yoga, increasing range of motion during Yoga For Flexibility, or recentering with Mindfulness Meditation, students practice their craft in a studio built around education and openness. The studio's positive qualities don't end there; designed for maximum eco-responsibility, the space lets people improve themselves while simultaneously improving the environment around them. In addition to classes, the space also hosts a fine arts gallery dedicated to yoga-inspired art.

  • YogaLove Oakland
    Nestled in the center of West Oakland, YogaLove Oakland is a community-centered yoga studio that believes in small class sizes and personalized attention. Its certified instructors offer everything from classes teaching the basics of yoga to sessions for moms-to-be and advanced students. Owner and director Treina Alexander, an RYT-500 instructor, leads a team of RYT-200 and RYT-500 teachers whose styles focus on different aspects of yoga such as flow, meditation, heart opening, gentle movement, and energy flow. In a Level 2 class, yogis practice more challenging poses and breathing skills, while in Level 3 classes, they gain strength and flexibility with a focus on breathing and visualizing themselves as a rubber band. Everything students need for class is provided, including filtered water, yoga mats, and a hand towel, and YogaLove Oakland is only three blocks from the West Oakland BART station.

  • FLEX
    Getting a workout can mean different things to different people. FLEX hopes to accommodate all of them by offering a broad range of workout choices and opportunities to get in shape. Inside the gym, separate areas stocked with cardio equipment, free weights, and strength-training machines allow members to exercise at their own pace. For those seeking a bit more professional guidance, the gym's supportive personal trainers design fitness regimens tailored to individual needs and goals. Even more variety is available in the form of group classes. Spinning sessions get pulses racing, brows sweating, and brains calculating the circumference of a bike wheel. Zumba and Bollywood-inspired classes turn simple, dance-based choreography into engaging cardio workouts. And, for those who prefer a calming, core-stabilizing workout, the instructors even lead mat Pilates sessions in addition to Hatha and Vinyasa yoga classes.

  • Fitness SF
    With five locations throughout the Bay Area, including three in San Francisco, Fitness SF caters to the needs of fitness enthusiasts and casual exercisers from Marin to Oakland. Each center brims with muscle-toning and pulse-raising equipment, allowing visitors a wide choice of activities, from pumping free weights to using ellipticals equipped with personal viewing screens. Although personal trainers are on hand to help refine technique and design individualized exercise regimens, the gyms' classes encourage guests to work out in a more communal setting. Yoga and Zumba appear on every class schedule, but instructors at each location incorporate their own additional sessions, such as cardio kickboxing, Bollywood dance, and Pilates mat. Many of the locations stay open until as late as midnight on select weekdays, which leaves plenty of time for a post-workout cooldown in the locker rooms.
