Yoga Inlet’s highly skilled instructors, all of whom are professionally certified and one of whom is a physical therapist, aim to help their students spark vitality and short-circuit stress. The studio’s specialty style is Svaroopa, a gentle type of Hatha that focuses on alignment and uses support over the course of up to 14 poses per class. Yoga+Plus, a more classic Hatha style, focuses on the relationship between movement and breath while increasing students’ strength, flexibility, and ability to catch butterflies in jars.

At Bikram Yoga West Reading, instructors promote deep, detoxifying stretches during their 90-minute hot yoga classes.
