The 2,500-square-foot space includes two spacious practice rooms, plus a lounge with a couch, candles, and rugs that create a homey vibe. But while it might be tempting to Zen out on the cushions, yoga classes await: from a four-week Introduction to Yoga course to SUP Yoga (stand-up paddleboarding), vinyasa flow, kids' yoga, and more. The studio also hosts events and special workshops with visiting instructors, giving students more ways to grow in their practice.

Native Yoga Center's founders, Todd and Tamara McLaughlin, have shown young yogis how to reap the benefits of bending and balancing in four countries: the United States, Australia, Thailand, and India. Their diverse international experiences inform each of the studio's challenging classes, which are scheduled every day of the week, except for days of the new moon or full moon or when the moon has to stay home and wait for the Internet guy. Stretchers of any skill level can attend 60-minute Vinyasa sessions, which highlight gentle movements, meditative breathing, and proper alignment, or 90-minute Ashtanga classes, which aim to increase muscular strength and balance. Native yoga classes take place in a warmed room to promote greater focus, encourage detoxification through sweating, and help students locate the frozen-fish-stick burglar based on escalating aromatics.
As its name suggests, Barefoot Yoga Studio takes a laid-back approach to yoga, a traditionally laid-back mode of physical expression. Even students without extra funds are welcome to attend classes, and are asked to just place whatever they can in the donation box. The studio wants to ensure that no one misses out on a Hatha or flow class at the studio, or a beach yoga session on the shoreline.
On the "Our Story" page of Twin Power Yoga's website, owners Ann and Ali express their belief that "by sharing yoga, we share ourselves." They know something about sharing—they're twins, after all, which they believe connects them spiritually as much as it does physically. At their West Palm Beach location, these siblings and their fellow instructors help participants of all experience levels explore their own physical and spiritual relationships to the world around them through Twin Power's style of power yoga. In heated studios with colorful walls and hardwood floors, instructors lead postural sequences that build both strength and cardio conditioning. Between flows, they emphasize meditation, helping practitioners let go of the competitive demands of daily life and pet beagles they already regret teaching to talk. This alternation between highly physical postures and awareness of breath encourages students to listen to their bodies. Classes always end in meditation, giving participants time to sit with whatever feelings their practice awakened.
Bikram Yoga on the Island's founders, Suzanne and Joe Elliott, draw inspiration from their students' physical progress and development each week, ensuring that each session addresses the needs of first-day students, casual practitioners, and lifelong yogis. Ten years of experience fuel Suzanne and Joe's work as instructors, with each tapping his or her encyclopedic knowledge to guide pupils through two breathing exercises and 26 poses. Along with a staff of instructors, the two founders demonstrate and describe the proper execution of each posture with the authority of an Olympic Twister medalist.
As students fold and unfold limbs, each movement helps promote healthy organ function by pushing freshly oxygenated blood throughout their entire bodies. Meanwhile, the studio's heating system helps them safely sink into each stretch and sweat out toxins by raising the temperature to 105 degrees with 40% humidity. After class, attendees can freshen up with the studio's indoor and outdoor shower facilities.
