bCalm Power Yoga
Lesley Reilly knew something was amiss. After immersing herself in sports to fight the stress of her corporate career, she found herself on the operating table. Two knee surgeries later, she discovered yoga's power to bolster her muscles without rattling her joints. Today, she shares this story at her own studio, bCalm Power Yoga, where students build strength with hatha-inspired poses. Here, certified instructors draw upon the teachings of Baron Baptiste, which emphasize athleticism rather than mysticism. During Power Vinyasa, the studio's signature class, deep breaths weave arm stands and backbends into routines as lively as a puppy-filled bounce castle. Pose modifications help beginners ease into the workout, and hot temperatures promote litheness, relaxation, and toxin release. The studio also offers restorative yoga, barre, and Pilates classes.
