Simon Says Yoga’s attentive yoga instructors lead a collection of varied class styles designed to accommodate yogis of all ages and experience levels. The studio’s weekly schedule takes place amid gleaming hardwood floors and ample sprawl space for packs of downward dogs to stretch out. Students flow through a continuous sequence of strengthening poses linked with mindful breathing exercises during Vinyasa classes, or center fidgety spirit animals during guided meditation sessions. With the help of exercise balls and rubber bands, Pilates’ efficient floor moves help tone limbs with long, lean muscle and develop tough cores capable of fending off the most intense tickle attacks. Kids-centric classes instill 2- to 17-year-old bodies with flexibility, stamina, and inner peace, modifying poses into animal impressions for toddlers and letting teenage practitioners paint their yoga mats black.
