Under the banner of the Greek word pneuma, which means "breath of God," the instructors at Pneuma Yoga/Movement Studio put a Christian spin on the ancient Hindu practice. Through muslin drapes, gauzy sunlight diffuses throughout the homey studio, alighting on beginners as they meditate through gentle flow yoga's relaxed poses and breath work or advanced practitioners as they scrimmage with their limitations in power yoga's muscle-building exercises. Guests can pop in during their lunch hour for Lunch Bunch sessions, and younger patrons aged 12–18 acquaint themselves with the benefits of the limb-limbering art during Prakasha yoga. Instructors keep class sizes intimate, giving each aspiring yogi enough room to move through mountain poses, sun salutations, and lindy-hop routines.
