The body sculptors at Ananda Yoga mold pliable clients into muscle-stretching poses with a weekly schedule of 16 yoga classes designed for all experience levels. Thermostats creep north of 85 degrees during hot Vinyasa sessions that link advanced postures with a connection between breath and movement that’s stronger than a human-powered helicopter. Accommodating instructors cater to yoga neophytes with a more down-tempo beginner class built on foundations of proper technique and focus. Intro to Vinyasa bridges the gap between beginner and advanced levels with broken-down sequences interspersed with select hot Vinyasa flows, such as sun salutations, moon salutations, and blown kisses at cloud.
Rust-colored walls and warm wood floors welcome yogis to the studio’s serene atmosphere. The remodeled main room sports a maize complexion doused in the light of sun, peeking in to respond individually to each salutation.
Though Ananda Yoga sometimes offers a discounted rate online, this Groupon still presents the best deal available.
