$39 for 10 Yoga and Fitness Classes ($150 Value)
Students of all skill levels can find a suitable class amid the center’s 12 styles of yoga. A fundamentals course covers basic poses while hatha classes move through asanas to slowly and evenly work the muscles. Power Flow suspends advanced students in poses for long periods of time. A separate strength-training studio houses traditional fitness classes such as AB-Domination, a 30-minute workout that stimulates the back and abdominals to strengthen and stretch the core. During the Kettlebell Fundamental Skills class, exercisers throw themselves into arm swings, squats, and presses that tone muscles. See the full class schedule here.
Stroga Strength and Yoga
Stroga Strength and Yoga is the perfect name for Doug Jefferies’ fitness studio, as his goal is to help clients reach optimal levels of wellness through a combination of strength conditioning and yoga. They offer numerous classes for all skill levels, from fundamental and hatha yoga to fitness classes such as group strength training, TRX, cycling, Zumba, and kickboxing.
The studio sprawls out within the L'Aiglon building, an early 20th-century construction accented by stained-glass windows and extensive woodwork. Inside the immense yoga space, ivory chandeliers drip from an intricately carved ceiling of the same hue, and periwinkle walls alternate with floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe up to 100 yogis in natural light. An azure ceiling painted with puffy white clouds tops the open-concept fitness area, which accommodates group classes for up to 20 students or up to one massively over-stuffed teddy bear.
