Urban Yoga's team of attentive instructors guide students through more than 40 yoga, barre, Nia, and meditation classes in a welcoming environment. The studio's robust schedule encourages seasoned yogis, newbies, and energetic sloths to find their footing. In Nia, barefoot practitioners adapt 52 movements to their own fitness level, taking cues from an instructor and ethereal music as they glide through the movements culled from various martial arts, healing, and dance traditions and sequenced to tightly tether body and mind. Therapeutic flow classes that encourage body awareness through carefully paced Vinyasa flows and a relaxing final wind down to help students build a safe and fulfilling practice. In Yin & Restorative Yoga, students hold poses for three to five minutes to stretch the connective tissues in the hips, pelvis, and spine, which can help lubricate tight joints. For a more dynamic workout, barre classes challenge muscles with a combination of Pilates core conditioning with ballet barre work to help pupils sculpt toned abdominals and lithe limbs, whereas Roots & Beyond sessions include informative discussions about yoga and 30 minutes of guided meditation.
