A fleet of yoga classes welcomes practitioners ranging from beginner to advanced. During a Hatha class, all levels benefit from the classical yoga form that combines asana––or poses––with deep breathing to boost relaxation and build muscle tone. The Maa Flow class incorporates continuous flowing poses and rhythmic breathing to create a challenging session for more advanced students, and the Hot Maa class envelops students of various levels in a heated room, helping them gain more flexibility while detoxifying and releasing stress. Hatha Restorative classes aim to calm and balance the mind, body, and spirit in soothing sessions. The 10-class option must be used up by December 1, 2012, and the one-month unlimited option must be activated by December 1, 2012. Check the schedule for class times.
It only took one yoga class for Farhad Khan to realize that the ancient practice would become his life’s passion. That passion led him on travels to Africa, India, and Southeast Asia, where he fully immersed himself in the spirituality of yoga before opening Maa Yoga as a place to share his discoveries with other students. The studio borrows its name from the Hindi word for mother, reflecting Khan’s philosophy that yoga should be a nurturing practice that helps others to love themselves and extend that love outward to others.
Inside the welcoming, nonjudgmental confines, Khan and his staff create a blend of different yoga styles including Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin, during which students hold poses for up to five minutes or until someone says “green light.” The 2,500-square-foot facility curates its peaceful atmosphere with help from eco-solar hot water and heating systems, sustainable bamboo flooring, and an air-purifying HEPA filtration system, and it also houses a tea lounge where practitioners can unwind postpose.
