Holding a yoga pose builds strength, discipline, and immunity to motion-sensor devices. Strike a deceptive pose with today's Groupon: for $30, you get five yoga classes at Rishi's Crossing Yoga Studio on South Wadsworth Boulevard (a $70 value).
Rishi's skilled instructors help students stretch out their bodies and minds and mold them into fitter, more tranquil forms. The schedule boasts a selection of 32 classes each week—including gentle yoga and varying levels of flow, power flow, and vinyasa—ensuring a rewarding experience for both yoga veterans malleable as warm wax and neophytes unable to touch their toes. In Rishi's clean, well-lighted place for yoga, pliable yogis practice poses, flowing from one posture into another like waves into a sinking hovercraft. Students of the stretch are welcome to arrive early and make themselves at home with a calming cup of tea while perusing Rishi's enriching library or chatting with fellow elastic apprentices.
Rishi's Community Yoga
The instructors at Rishi's Community Yoga share an ambitious goal: to meaningfully improve the lives of everyone who walks through their door. Yoga, of course, is their primary tool with which to do so, and they lead classes in a variety of styles and for all levels of ability. Gentle, active, and vigorous classes are held throughout the week, covering everything from meditation to core basics, the latter incorporating elements of Pilates to build muscles that support a healthy spine. Each month, the studio also hosts special events that focus on sound healing, essential oils, and holistic health.
