Inside its serene studio, Essential Yoga guides groups toward health and wellness with more than 10 different yoga classes, including multiple threads of Vinyasa and an intro to Ashtanga. The facility's roster of passionate instructors acts as a source of constant encouragement, and a flexible schedule of daily classes bends to accomodate students of all experience levels. To kick workout routines up a notch, Essential Yoga also offers energized sessions of Zumba.
Body of Work Yoga offers classes that combine the meditative powers of controlled breathing with the body-sculpting, posture-straightening flow of classic yoga poses. A month of eclectic yoga classes selected from the flexible schedule can help stretch out and sooth even the stiffest of unoiled joints. Each session is lead by a dedicated instructor who brings years of experience and nuggets of bendable wisdom to each class, guiding the harmonious trifecta of your body, mind, and spirit animal.
After years of teaching and practicing a variety of yoga styles, Sumit Banerjee founded Sumits Yoga. The sequences and styles students learn in his classes reflect his extensive background in Bikram and Vinyasa yoga. More important, though, he works to share yoga's incredible benefits?a toned, flexible body; a relaxed state of mind; and improved overall well-being. Sumits Yoga's classes all take place in a heated environment, so students can enjoy the added benefits that heat brings?including detoxification and increased blood flow?without standing next to a volcano.
Though the instructors and music selections rotate at My Hot Yoga, guests can bank on a steady temperature of 105 degrees Fahrenheit. This warmth is less cloying than it is liberating, loosening muscles so that students can ease into more pronounced poses during class. It also encourages a cleansing sweat, clears the mind, and boosts heart rates, providing a more focused substitute for traditional cardio workouts such as running or blinking very fast. Sessions range from the Vinyasa flow sequences of Hot 60 to the long holds of Deep Stretch, and they?re suited for all ages and fitness levels. This flexibility is what fuels the staff's overarching mission: to turn a hobby into a personalized lifestyle choice. Instructors further promote a comfortable, custom atmosphere by modifying poses and even allowing guests to submit song requests.
SoulFit Training founder Amanda couldn't find contentment with a single fitness regimen. She tackled marathons, boot camps, and mountain biking before turning to CrossFit, and earned her Level 1 CrossFit training certification. Though the high-intensity routines inspired her to keep building strength, she still sought balance—and that's where yoga came into the picture.
At SoulFit Training, Amanda combines cross-training style weight-resistance and cardio circuits with calming poses. Recurrent breath work and meditation boost mental clarity, and the fast-paced workouts in between sculpt lean muscles. Though the 50-minute classes begin and end with relaxation, their techniques vary each day, staving off boredom in students and nausea in overly swung kettlebells. Amanda also leads private sessions, Gentle Yoga classes, and Gentle SoulFit Training classes, which adjust their maneuvers to accommodate recovering and senior guests.
Having benefited personally from her experiences with yoga, head instructor Lin Horsch hopes to share, heal, and fortify at Ageless Yoga. Rooted in the belief that yoga should be accessible to people of all ages and abilities, Horsch and her staff of yogis lead five types of yoga classes, but emphasize the fact that yoga can and should be used to heal the body?just as Horsch experienced.
