From the moment students walk through Barefoot Yoga Studio's french doors and into its expansive practice space, they find themselves immersed in serenity owed to soft lighting, gleaming hardwood floors, and the noncompetitive attitude fostered by owner Jenn Kasper. Along with her team of fellow certified yoga instructors, Jenn leads inclusive yoga classes suitable for all experience levels and grounded in the Vinyasa and hatha yoga traditions. Beginners are encouraged to build a solid foundation for practice in Level 1 root classes or further their practice at their own pace in open-level classes that offer variations on classic poses. Savvier stretchers attempt challenging backbends and arm balances in intermediate Level 2 classes.
In addition to yoga, Barefoot also offers instruction in American Tribal Style belly dance. Offered in six-week sessions, the classes lead dancers through the belly-swaying basics, including lessons on posture, group maneuvers, and where to find office-appropriate crop tops.
