Embrace Yoga's team of instructors offer a series of classes aimed at transforming beginner and intermediate yogis into adroit practitioners of the bendy arts. Classes are offered in a body of styles such as Flow Yoga, which employs a steady stream of poses to build strength while shedding pounds like superfluous baby teeth. Beginners can take advantage of the soothing stretches and relaxation focus in Kripalu Hatha classes. Each session is capped at 16 students to ensure astronomical levels of student-instructor interaction, and daily availability of yoga classes requires minimal bending of inflexible schedules.
Those looking to stretch minds into supple brain bends can opt for 45-minute meditation classes, which teach the art of slowing the breath, focusing the mind, and tuning out the distraction of nagging police queries. Meditation classes take place every Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
Embrace Yoga Center
At Embrace Yoga Center, the instructors focus first on helping folks find self-acceptance. Rather than forcing people into traditional molds, yogis help everyone find their comfort level. That means offering classes that range from calm meditation to intensive vinyasa, or leading holistic counseling sessions. Along with yoga classes, the center offers massage therapy and hypnotherapy that helps participants overcome everything from nicotine addiction to a deep-rooted fear of swinging watches.
