"We are constantly being told how welcoming our studio is," say instructors at Ho-Ho-Kus Yoga, and their pride in this statement informs their entire approach. All the classes are designed to accommodate all levels. Whether the class is Yoga For Every(body) or Yoga Boot Camp, it's clear the focus is on improving one's own practice, rather than competing with others or lugging a treadmill into the studio from home. There are yoga classes for children, whole families, and expectant moms, as well as specialty classes such as Iyengar and candlelight yoga.
