Part of yoga’s beauty lies in its adaptability. Whether performed by an experienced practitioner or a first-time student, the postures can be modified to become simpler or more complicated. For students looking for an added level of impact, another variable awaits: heat. During sessions at Body Yoga, instructors lead students of any age or ability level through a series of 26 postures and two breathing exercises in rooms infused with sultry waves of super-heated air. Deep breath work awakens the body with a refreshing jolt of oxygen before muscles, ligaments, and joints shed stress and stiffness. A final series of postures closes classes, as students push the limits of their concentration, patience, and flexibility.
Illuminated with natural light coursing in through a wall of large windows, Body Yoga’s studio is lined with a sweat-proof and antimicrobial Flotex floor. Guests are invited to converse with peers either before or after sessions in a community lounge, and enjoy a refreshing cool down in spacious steam showers.
