This Kripalu-affiliated studio focuses on the small details of yoga movement, alignment, and core strength in a variety of classes. Gentle yoga classes encourage antsy pupils to slow down and flex into foundational postures, and Vinyasa yoga centres around the rhythm of the breath and rhyme of the air conditioner. The experienced instructors take a holistic approach to yoga, welcoming students of all experience levels.
Trinity Yoga Centre rolls out the red velvet yoga mat to practitioners who opt for an annual membership. Yogis can flex their way through a free class on their birthday, and claim another if they bring in a friend to purchase a punch card. Additional benefits include early notice of upcoming studio events, discounts on unlimited class passes, and 10% off cooking classes and studio equipment.
In Classic Yoga mythology, the Tandava is "the dance of life." It's a fitting namesake for Tandava Yoga. While yoga isn't mythical, it's as rooted in age-old traditions as many myths; while yoga isn't dance, it's as flowing and expressive as many dances—at least the way it's practiced in the studio's classes.
The eclectic mix of classes ranges from gentle yoga and meditation sessions to a core-strengthening workout infused with cardio. Regardless of the specific class, though, the instructors hew to a holistic philosophy, one that encourages conscious breathing, mindfulness, and feeling present.
