Owner and dedicated yogini Mary Frances guides students of all skill levels through heated power Vinyasa classes inspired by the teachings of Baron Baptiste. The 45- to 90-minute sessions walk attendees through a series of poses based on Hatha, Iyengar, and Bikram yoga techniques. Students move from one pose to the next with balance challenging movements, using measured inhalations and exhalations to hone focus and link poses together with the grace of Madame Butterfly translated into semaphore. During classes, 85- to 90-degree temperatures allow students to safely sink into deep stretches while perspiring away any bodily toxins. Although the studio rents yoga mats ($2) and towels ($1) to students as needed, it advises students to bring their own to ensure proper yogi-equipment bonding. See the class schedule here.
Divine Power Yoga
Divine Power Yoga is helmed by founder Mary Frances, who parlayed her ten-year stint of practicing yoga and her studies with famed yogi Baron Baptiste into the birth of her own studio. The soothing confines envelop students of all experience levels as they undulate through power Vinyasa yoga poses in rooms heated up to 90 degrees, building flexibility and endurance while introducing their minds, bodies, and spirits to each other through firm chakra handshakes. A smattering of classes stretch across each week, while intermittent events such as a Yoga for Two workshop or an all-day yoga boot camp help participants enhance their regular practices.
