The Yoga Space
The Yoga Space's instructors believe that all bodies, despite age and fitness level, can benefit from practicing yoga, inspiring aspiring yogis to bolster their minds and bodies with tranquility and strength. The instructors hold integrated yoga classes in which beginners and advanced students work side by side, bending and stretching into modified poses to suit their abilities. Class styles range from eclectic blends of several modalities to athletic Vinyasa sessions that focus on linking controlled breaths with a series of flowing postures. The studio's practice room fosters peaceful relaxation with calming earth tones and plenty of soft, natural light. An ethereal mural of a tree spans the room with curling branches dotted in blossoms, providing students with a soothing point of focus. The Yoga Space supplies mats for yogis without them, as well as any other necessary props, and students are welcome to bring a blanket to keep warm during extended periods of meditation or to build a blanket fort.
