Yoga awakens the body and spirit, allowing yogis to forecast oncoming weather, traffic patterns, and unwinning lottery numbers, such as "four" and "peanut." Tune and tone your body with today's Groupon: for $25, you get five drop-in classes at The Yoga Studio of Shelby (a $60 value).
The Yoga Studio of Shelby's supportive instructors, including owner, founder, and former Dalai Lama–student Lisa Tokarz, help students silence clamoring neurons and better their holistic well-being. The studio’s schedule of accessible, meaningful classes includes sessions to enhance stamina, forge stable, flexible muscles, and develop concentration and mindfulness. Cool Blend Vinyasa yoga excites the senses with a brilliant, chocolate-and-peanut-butter level combination of chilled studio air and a rigorous, sweat-breaking sequence of poses intended to improve stamina. Basic Hatha yoga’s series of centering poses encourages students to focus on mindfulness, while controlled breathing and meditation refine patience for hide-and-seek marathons. Daily stresses flee their corporeal cage as evening-yoga sessions unwind knotted sinews. A slew of evening classes navigate busy workdays and yoga-mat rentals ($2) ensure that impromptu slumber parties want for nothing.
The Yoga Studio Downtown
While almost everything else that is five millennia old has fossilized, the ancient practice of yoga remains relevant. At The Yoga Studio Downtown, teachers with a minimum of 200 training hours teach students the age-old art, which builds strength, enhances flexibility, and aids with stress management. The studio’s classes range from hot Vinyasa, which is a flowing style taught in an 85-degree room, to Hatha, where meditations help to clear students’ minds without making them forget their Social Security numbers. Expectant mothers can stretch with low-impact poses in prenatal-yoga classes. Studio workshops on partner yoga, meditation, and other specialty topics round out the schedule.
