Under the direction of owner Michele Paiva, who has logged more than 500 hours of Yoga Alliance training, Paiva Ayurveda Yoga Spa slims bodies and relaxes minds with a weekly schedule of group classes. Exchange coffee for early Rise & Shine classes, where participants—who can request a wake-up call—stretch in sync with nature's morning rhythms and gain a tranquil mindset that allows them to sense the secret thoughts of passing clouds. The attentive guidance and slower pace of Basics classes teach novices common yoga principles, 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. 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).
