The Yoga Loft's vetted instructors lead all levels of practitioners through Sattva and Ashtanga classes at its eco-friendly studio. Sattva classes explore Hatha yoga, flowing through postural sequences and breathing techniques that encourage the connection of mind and body.

The deep relaxation classes focus on longer holds, deeper postures, and slower paces, opening the hips, shoulders, and spine to enhance range of motion and to release stress to go follow its dream of working on an Alaskan crab boat. Sessions last 45–90 minutes and run all week, comprising a class schedule starting as early as 6:15 a.m. and ending as late as 9 p.m. Before most Sattva classes, the studio is open for self-guided meditation and mime monologue rehearsals.

Impurities can then exit through beads of sweat, making the body feel energized and refreshed.
