Under the direction of owner Michele Paiva, a registered instructor with the Yoga Alliance, the team at Paiva Ayurveda Yoga Spa helps clients slim their bodies and trim their mental stresses. A schedule of more than 15 yoga classes caters to visitors of diverse backgrounds and interests. The attentive guidance and slower pace of Basics classes teach novices common poses and techniques, such as folding your mat into a pocket-sized scroll. Vinyasa flow courses teach methods for aligning fluid movements with breathing, and power yoga uses the same motions in faster-paced, more athletic sessions. Michele and the team also lead pintsize serenity seekers through children’s and teen yoga. Along with their unbalanced chi, participants are encouraged to bring their own mats, towels, and water, but rentals are available for a fee ($4 for a yoga mat, $4 for a towel and water).
