Filled with vibrant colors, hand-painted murals, and Eastern sculptures, the Pleasure Point Yoga studio exemplifies the way the space is often thought of by its staff, which is "your local, everyday retreat." Instructors encourage guests to use yoga and breath as a way to connect with themselves, their neighborhoods, and the global yoga community. As they lead classes held every day of the week, instructors guide practitioners of all levels through Vinyasa Flow classes and workshops that are offered monthly. Guests are encouraged to bring their own mats or shag carpets, but can also borrow mats from the studio when necessary. Helpful props intended to take poses to different levels are also available, such as straps, blocks, and supportive blankets.
