Hapa Yoga takes its name from a Hawaiian term for a blend of Asian and European heritage, fitting for a studio that prides itself on an all-inclusive embrace of multiple yoga traditions performed in the welcoming aloha spirit. The team of certified instructors arrived at its yoga mastery from many paths, from dealing with the stresses of military life and conditioning for amateur boxing matches to healing from serious injuries. The instructors now help their students work toward self-set wellness goals, including toning muscles through mat Pilates, Zumba, and TRX classes, sweating away unwanted fat during heated power-yoga sessions, preparing bodies for child-birth with prenatal yoga, or strengthening core groups with Vinyasa flow.
In addition to adult yogis, kids master breathing exercises, tumbling feats, and new ways to reach countertop cookie jars during children’s yoga classes, or play with toys and read books at the onsite childcare facility. No matter their age, visitors feel the 2,700-square-foot space’s welcoming vibes as soon as they see the glittering lights bouncing off the studio’s cool greens and grays.
