Ananda Shala

Over her 15 years as a fitness instructor, Ananda Shala's owner, Aimee Firor McBride developed a special passion for yoga and Pilates. Her love of the practice led her to India, and into the studios of renowned teachers such as Shiva Rea during her more than 500 hours of teacher studies. She draws upon this experience as she helms a coterie of certified instructors who lead groups through classes and workshops. On hardwood floors flooded with natural sunlight, instructors guide students through Prana Flow Vinyasa yoga for all levels, hot yoga in an 80- to 90-degree room, and meditation classes.

In addition to yoga, instructors also teach Pilates, including mat classes, sessions that integrate weights and strength training, and machines that help lengthen and strengthen muscles. During private sessions they help students work on individual needs or master a specific technique such as folding laundry with their feet. Corporate workshops help business people soothe their minds during stressful situation, and special events such as yoga parties and classes for kids and teens explore yoga in a fun environment.

Customer Reviews

Shala offers a wide variety of classes (e.g. Tai Chi "light", several yoga disciplines, and Pilates), taught in intimate settings by expert, passionate instructors. Unlike many studios, Shala provides yoga mats free of charge, and offers complimentary water and tea. The staff is friendly and very helpful, the location (right downtown!) is walkable, and they offer training opportunities too!

It's a small studio, which sometimes gets crowded but all the instructors are fantastic in their own way, bringing their own style to their classes, and the owners are lovely human beings.
