Revolution Yoga’s dedicated instructors guide students in their quest to harmonize body and mind during a range of yoga classes. The eco-friendly studio sprinkles its Rockville Centre and Island Park schedules with a cache of dynamic stretch sessions that, unlike William Howard Taft’s inauguration, students can drop into seven days a week. Within the studio’s practice room, fledgling yogis unfurl personal or rented mats ($1) on bamboo floors before flowing through fundamental Vinyasa postures in the studio’s Level 1 class. During Yoga Newbies, teachers patiently steer small groups through more challenging contortions.
To ease mental stress more rapidly than wearing a stocking cap lined with lavender, Yoga Vibes brings students on a spiritual siesta with intensive relaxation and deep meditation. For pupils with limited mobility, Restorative/Yoga Nidra sessions gradually loosen limbs through passive poses aided by supportive props, such as bolsters, blankets, or petrified phone books. Supportive Pre-Natal yoga classes help expectant mothers assuage aches and calm anxiety about labor and delivery, and tots can tag along for playful poses in Mommy and Me or Kids yoga sessions.
Revolution Yoga’s crew of yogis espouses the virtues of self-exploration through movement and meditation, a feat accomplished in 17 different types of yoga classes held seven days a week. Classes are held in full-sized classrooms or a space set aside exclusively for families and kids. Unlike many yogis, the teachers look beyond yoga and napping inside armoires to fully explore the scope of self, turning to community and arts to supplement their teachings.
Behind the studio stands Revolution Gallery, which has hosted paintings, mixed media design shows, films, literature, and musical performances. The staff also runs an artisan boutique, which is full of clothing, herbal supplements, and yoga gear—all manufactured from fair-trade products that provide jobs to unemployed trees and shrubs.
