StudiOMango's trio of certified yoga instructors invites students of all experience levels to unite their minds and bodies in invigorating Vinyasa-flow-based classes. The studio's ample natural light, blond hardwood flooring, and moniker-reinforcing mango-hued walls conjure the inviting atmosphere of one's living room, only instead of catnapping on the couch with Bob Barker infiltrating their dreams, guests move from one strengthening and lengthening pose to the next, pausing to regain slow, even breaths in downward-facing dog. In beginner-friendly classes, the instructors initiate newbies by covering the basics and helping them establish a foundation for the practice with sun salutations, balancing poses, and backbends. More advanced sessions lead yogis in working up a sweat with a continuous series of postures and more challenging poses, but all poses can be modified to accommodate any skill level. Music gently motivates students during every class, helping them channel their focus and steer their minds from daily responsibilities or embarrassment over accidentally calling the instructor mom.
