No matter how different their students’ lives may be, Yoga Six’s teachers tease out common threads and knit them into a sense of community. Registered by the Yoga Alliance, they pursue goals such as freedom and intelligence while guiding yogis of all levels toward physical and emotional well-being. Whether leading group classes or private sessions, instructors impart pose modifications and gently adjust body alignment to promote safety and personal growth.
Students bend and balance inside a pair of classrooms filled with warm, indirect light and tatami-mat flooring made from recycled, nontoxic materials. Instead of distracting classes with a rousing air-horn concert, the heating system quietly cultivates 102-degree temperatures for hot yoga routines. In addition to making muscles extra pliable, the heat helps bodies to sweat out toxins. Room-temperature classes range from slow and mellow restorative sessions to Y6 Barre workouts, which pair basic yoga poses with ballet-inspired isometrics and interval-training techniques. After class, students can socialize in a cozy lounge, unwind in private showers, or browse a boutique filled with yoga apparel, coconut water, and BPA-free water bottles.
