Kathleen Kastner Mortenson, owner of Maya Yoga, stretches yogis' abilities with a schedule that fills the warm studio with offerings for students of all levels. Uplifting music provides a soothing aural backdrop for introductory courses, in which teachers guide burgeoning yogis into basic poses and explain how to approach the mat without startling it. In more advanced Vinyasa sessions, instructors ease practitioners through each tranquil breath to cultivate flexibility and core strength. Meditation classes focus the mind through repeated mantras, leading the psyche down soothing mental paths with a carrot dangled before its third eye. The earth-tone walls of Maya’s studio are lined with vibrant hangings, statues, and inscriptions, and they shelter relaxation like a bulletproof beach umbrella. Rental mats are available at the studio for $1.
Though Maya Yoga sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon represents the best deal available.
Sunlight spills through Maya Yoga’s glass-block windows, quietly illuminating students as they meditatively make their way through a series of poses amongst tapestries of Hindu deities. Here, teachers shepherd students of all levels through flowing Vinyasa sequences and the ancient poses of the Ashtanga tradition. To help loosen tight muscles and oust toxins, teachers heat up the studio to a limb-limbering 80 degrees. They also play tranquil music to help the group breathe deeply as they commune with their inner selves and train their third eyes to not wink at every attractive stranger who passes by.
