Cincinnati Yoga School’s students work through classes to challenge and develop bodies’ stamina and flexibility, but the studio’s instructors push students further by helping to hone their self-awareness and inner well-being. Led by program director William Brashear, a veteran yogi with experience practicing in India, the school’s instructors cater to students of all experience levels with classes that vary in intensity. During power-yoga classes, students learn to channel each breath into the seamlessly flowing postures that comprise Ashtanga’s alignment-focused Primary Series. Yin yoga leads attendees through passively sustained stretches, which gently loosen the joints’ connective tissues and leave minds as focused as a laser shot through a monocle. Mixed-levels sessions appeal to moderately experienced students with a faster-paced sequence of asanas that can include more challenging poses, such as inversions, backbends, and pirouettes. In addition to the current location, Cincinnati Yoga School will be offering classes at the Wyoming Fine Arts Center at 322 Wyoming Avenue in Cincinnati starting in March.

About Cincinnati Yoga School
To program director William Brashear and his team of teachers, yoga is a spiritual journey that begins within while a person is creating a bond with humanity. They inspire students of all ability levels to seek this inner peace in their classes, which cover a variety of styles. Options range from Mysore—a meditation-focused discipline—to power yoga—a vigorous Vinyasa-based course—to gentle yoga—a slower-paced rehabilitative class. To zero in on students' specific areas of concern, they lead one-on-one sessions, helping them master their techniques and learn Sanskrit words such as, "asana" which means "pose," or more commonly, "Can you please help me? My leg is stuck behind my head."
In addition to yoga, the school provides healing services, including Ayurvedic Thai yoga massage, in which a trained practitioner gently pulls arms and legs and twists torsos and shoulders in an effort to loosen the muscles and release stress. It also hosts yoga- and meditation-centric events and organizes calming retreats to locales such as Leeland Valley.
