Living Yoga helps students of all skill levels foster development of mind and body with expert instruction and a number of different class styles. The charming, nearly century-old multiroom studio is an ideal space for casting off the worries of the day with invigorating exercises and healthy breathing techniques. Its diverse schedule accommodates morning benders, afternoon mat masters, and evening exercisers who spend all morning and afternoon hunting for prizes in boxes of breakfast cereal.
Classes include the 45-minute lunch Vinyasa course, which gives nine-to-fivers a stretchy escape from workday stress, and a 90-minute hot-yoga course, which uses 105-degree heat to replicate the conditions of yoga's traditional homeland, Venus. Students should bring water, a yoga mat, and a towel and should avoid eating two hours before sessions.
