Prana Yoga's team of trained instructors expertly guide students through a variety of body-bending classes seven days a week, earning themselves a glowing feature in News 10 NBC. The gentle yoga class focuses on unearthing your inner chi, imparting the fundamentals of yoga movement to the rhythmic current of inspiring music. During Prana flow sessions, these pliable pros lead students through a tapestry of invigorating poses that aim to synchronize the breath with movement to improve circulation, expunge toxins, and increase chances of victory in pretzel imitation competitions. The serene studio's tall windows allow natural light to cascade over pupils as they balance their bodies and soak up the motivational quotes scribed upon the taupe-colored walls. Peruse Prana's schedule to plan for a class that fits into a calendar square filled with household chores, family obligations, and executive-level food fights.
Patrons can also explore the adjoining boutique where apparel and accessories fill the deep, wooden shelves. Atop the auburn tiled floors and beneath an effulgent chandelier, visitors can purchase such body adornments as the Blue Life departure top ($60), the Natalie B bracelet ($47), or the scoop swimmers tank ($51). The boutique's inviting interiors cultivate a comfortable environment to discover trendy tidbits or master the ancient art of "om" yodeling.
At Prana Yoga, students gather beneath the wings of swans, which float across the studio's wall toward the inspirational quote "Let the beauty of what you love be what you do." Here, such wisdom surfaces from within as minds clear and muscles strengthen. During the signature Vinyasa flow class, the temperature rises to loosen tight muscles and oust squatting toxins. Students match deep, relaxing breaths with a series of ancient poses as teachers, such as studio cofounder Carrie Herscovici, circulate the room, lighting candles and gently adjusting bodily alignment. Drawing from her training with power-yoga superstar Baron Baptiste and Indian sage Senthil Kumar, Carrie inspires her students to surmount both physical challenges and mental unrest, strengthening the body while bringing peace to the mind. In addition to leading classes, she donates 10% of the studio's profits to charity and operates a clothing boutique that helps shoppers integrate yoga into their everyday lives and bow-tie collections.
