Breathing Room Yoga & Movement Studio's dedicated practitioners foster a holistically healing environment with personal attention in 25 yoga classes each week. During Flow for All classes, yogis of all levels twist limbs through a Vinyasa-themed sequence of sun salutations and standing poses, which instructors will personalize to accommodate each student's pace. Yin Yoga loosens connective tissue with mindful asana poses, which, unlike a caffeinated kitten, may be held for up to five minutes, and jazzier Flow Yoga Jam motivates pupils with a soundtrack of pulse-pounding reggae, rock, and hip-hop to awaken fatigued joints. Alternatively, expectant mothers gather in Yoga Mama (Prenatal) lessons to shift through calming postures as retired storks share helpful advice about motherhood. To accommodate students with busy itineraries, Breathing Room's class schedule includes evening, weekend, and lunchtime classes.
Natural light filters through sheer drapes onto Breathing Room’s sleek hardwood floors as students stretch atop provided mats and a Buddha statue grins approvingly. Before or after class, yogis can sip complimentary hot tea, freshen up with organic face wipes, or tame tresses with provided hair ties, which allow Rapunzel to master the mountain pose unencumbered.
Breathing Room Yoga & Movement Studio
When registered yoga teacher Carissa Ciuca discovered the ancient art, she was searching for a physical activity that would free her from the restraints of her daily routine. She found that the mental and spiritual breakthroughs it inspired were what truly liberated her and helped to center her life. After training under Seane Corn—an internationally celebrated yoga teacher—among others, she realized her dream of opening her own yoga studio, then closing it once in a while so she could go home and sleep. Now, Carissa and her large, highly trained team of registered instructors strive to create a sanctuary where students of all abilities can achieve individual growth, celebrate community, and foster self-awareness.
The staff helps students unite mind, body, and spirit through the flows and postures of Vinyasa, gentle yin, and postnatal classes. They created this curriculum to help students let yoga’s lessons stir change in their current lives and not in their past, for which time travel yoga is notorious. When they are not immersed in their own practice, these motivating instructors empower students to reshape their lives with a comprehensive teacher certification program, which emphasizes the Vinyasa style.
