Owned by Anusara-inspired teacher Dianne Bondy, Eastside Yoga Studio nurtures students of all skill levels with a vast, accessible range of yoga classes performed in a caring, compassionate environment. Today’s Groupon provides apprentice yogis with the secret password to all classes, ensuring a comprehensive yoga experience. Increase flexibility and well-being with a Gentle Yoga class, ideal for beginners, or learn the basics of postures, breathwork, and meditation in the Yoga Basics class. For a more strength-oriented option, the studio’s signature power class, Fusion, offers extra attention to both nuclear and anatomical cores. After mastering the basics, Eastside’s Follow the Yogini class gives students an opportunity to create their own unique rhythms, fashioning a chorus line of synchronized movement and breath. All classes at Eastside Yoga Studio are intended to help individuals work towards their greatest potential, and provide the fundamentals for developing strength, both of muscle, mind, and spleen.
At Yoga Shelter, you won't hear esoteric chants echoing through the halls or meditation music reverberating from rock-shaped speakers. That's because founder Eric Paskel wants to make yoga accessible for all students, whether they're searching for inner peace or a more toned bod. Hip hop, dance, soul, chill, contemporary, and classic music accompanies all classes, ranging from Yoga Rocks, which focuses on sequenced postures, to Fusion, a blend of faster- and slower-moving classes. There is no hierarchy of classes; each 60- to 75-minute session is open to all skill levels. As Paskel himself puts it on his about page, ?What's different about us is that we admit we have issues, we know we have work to do?if you can relate to that, you'll love this place.?
