Invoke Studio's owner, Amy Peddycord, and her crew of upbeat instructors boost energy and solidify cores with a flexible lineup of Vinyasa yoga and Pilates mat classes. Aspiring yogis can vogue through a series of fast-paced postures in basic Vinyasa classes, employing focused breathing exercises to enhance poses and extinguish trick birthday candles with ease. To amp up the vigorous sweat session, the balmy studio boasts temperatures of up to 95 degrees during a 60-minute heated Vinyasa yoga class, which helps to loosen tense limbs, burn calories, and eliminate harmful toxins in conveniently perspirable liquid form. Additionally, one-hour Pilates mat classes tighten torsos and boost balance by toning muscles with resistance bands, balls, and weights, helping pupils to fortify their body's structural powerhouse more effectively than donning a girdle reinforced with flying buttresses.
Invoke Yoga and Pilates Studio
With more than 75 classes each week and an expert squad of certified instructors, it makes sense that Nuvo magazine named Invoke Studio the best source for yoga and Pilates seven years in a row. At the downtown location, students strengthen cores in studios bathed in muted hues and accented by exposed ducts and gleaming hardwood floors. Meanwhile, on the north side, a 3,000 square-foot oasis plays host to yoga and Pilates classes, which help to increase range of motion with exercises performed on simple sticky mats. A ballet barre stretches across the wall of a large practice room, where students perform dance-inspired moves. The space glows with new bamboo floors while a two-sided fireplace creates a cozy sense of calm in both the yoga room and entryway.
