Iyengar Yoga Source’s limber tutors tap their extensive knowledge to deliver effective, hands-on instruction to elucidate for students the mentally invigorating asanas of Iyengar yoga. The studio’s schedule boasts sessions that complement students of various skill level and experience, with Level 1 classes building beginners a safe platform for Iyengar yoga practice by perfecting standing poses, shoulder stands, and breakdancing skills. Level 2 students enhance their experience by adding to their honed flexibility and endurance as they tackle forward extensions, back bends, and headstands while solving long-division problems without a calculator. As attendees progress, increased concentration on breath and posture alignment allows them to develop a deeper self-awareness. The new studio location boasts an expansive practice space lined with dark red walls and anchored by a pair of pillars that have mastered the supported shoulder stand.
Bikram yoga was founded by Bikram Choudhury, founder of the worldwide Yoga College of India who first devised and researched the idea of performing poses from traditional Hatha yoga in a heated environment in the early 1970s. Sessions generally last 90 minutes, incorporating 26 poses and two breathing exercises. Owner, Derek, and his fellow teachers lead students through these poses during classes that take place inside an eco-conscious studio with a sky-lit yoga room covered in Flotex antimicrobial floor covering. The heated studio also keeps the air moving, which prevents it from becoming stagnant or making lungs feel socially awkward. After class, students can rinse off their hard-earned sweat in the showers, browse the athletic boutique, or relax in the lounge.
The instructors at Providence Power Yoga won't take "I don't know how" for an answer.

The heat in the studio reaches 95 degrees to enhance muscle elasticity as guests bend through the fluid, strengthening sequences.
Even outside of classes, PPY devotes itself to helping others discover yoga. A work-study program allows participants to practice yoga in exchange for manning the front desk or tidying the space.
