Jennifer Venditti, an instructor at Lilananda Yoga, thinks of yoga more as her best friend than a form of exercise. "Whether you've never practiced before, if you haven't been on your mat in a very long time, or if you practice every day," she says, "your practice is always there for you." She herself has been developing her own relationship with yoga for more than nine years. Whenever she leads a class, she incorporates a little of everything she's learned in that time: breathing exercises, asana sequences, meditation, and pure relaxation. She likes to make her classes easy for anyone to step in to, and she offers modifications for any exercise a student finds too difficult.

While E Studio Hot Yoga may never reach the size of General Electric—one of the companies for which owner Emily has led corporate fitness efforts—it's still an ambitious undertaking. A team of instructors leads the center's classes, which range from ballet-barre workouts set to upbeat music to power-yoga sessions held in a 90-degree studio. Like a crutch with a manufacturing error, the schedules at both the Clifton Park and Latham locations are flexible; classes take place seven days a week, with a variety of morning and evening classes held throughout the week.

Besides developing rhythm and coordination, classes can also help students improve their strength, muscle tone, and flexibility.
