Elements Yoga’s team of experienced yoga instructors invite yogis to hone healthy bodies and peaceful minds. The studio’s schedule of classes accommodates students of all skill levels with classes such as the 75-minute Still Waters class, where students support longer-held postures with props such as blocks, straps, and La-Z-Boy reclining mats, while teachers provide pose modifications to accommodate seasoned stretching veterans and newbie yogis. Wind Power classes feature the challenging Vinyasa flow style, where a sequence of continuous postures links together with deep, mindful breaths and empowering poses to build strength, flexibility, and endurance. A combination of the physical yoga practice and calming meditation work, Solar and Lunar Mantra sessions help reduce stress and anxiety and release energy from pent-up spirit animals.
When searching for a name that encompassed the principles of her studio, founder Erika Cooper turned to the five elements—earth, air, fire, water, and ether—and their relation to the five senses for inspiration. She settled on Elements Yoga, which was perfect, as the bedrock of her philosophy is to continuously learn, grow, and remain aware of the world around us. Hence, she ensures each session at Elements is a communal and multisensory experience—in addition to traditional yoga postures, she has students chant, sing, and dance in a friendly and engaging environment that encourages laughter and very slow, purposeful high-fives. Cooper also believes in the power of education, which is why many of her classes include readings and lessons on the history of yoga and Sanskrit. She extends those teachings to regular workshops, as well as to the studio’s certification program.
In an effort to give back to the community through the practice of yoga, Elements hosts weeklong donation-only classes five times a year with 80% of the proceeds passed on to local charities.
