Attentive yoga instructor, Meena Puri, taps her 500 hours of teacher training to guide students through challenging yoga classes for all skill levels. The studio's 75-minute sessions run six days a week, giving pupils ample opportunity to engage in meaningful yoga-mat bonding. Fledgling flexers can absorb the fundamentals in beginners' classes, where deep breathing and relaxation techniques help to ease into gentle, restorative poses. A sequence of flowing postures linked together with conscious breathing creates muscle-manipulating heat and an invigorating aerobic workout, and yoga-fundamentals sessions stress proper alignment to help mat mavens to achieve a greater range of motion and build mathematically sound human triangles. Endurance, strength, and flexibility classes use a combination of sun salutations, balance poses, and inversions to build strong limbs capable of reciprocating hugs with overzealous spirit bears.
