Villa Pilates & Yoga
Students at Villa Pilates & Yoga sweat in an earth- and body-safe studio furnished with sustainable bamboo floors and bathed in nothing but nontoxic paint and natural light. Owner Carly Farmer and her staff carefully cultivate the noncompetitive atmosphere at what the OC Metro called a “little gem” by teaching a seven-days-a-week schedule of classes that welcomes all skill levels—from beginners seeking a comfortable environment to begin their practice to experienced yogis looking to perfect advanced moves in a private or semiprivate class. Steadily transitioning poses form the basis of Vinyasa-style yoga flow classes, whereas music yoga classes rely on melodies and rhythms to help move yogis through a choreographed sequence. Reformer Pilates offers a change of pace from the studio’s yoga sessions by putting students through a more intense, calorie-burning session than either yoga or traditional Pilates. Students in need of a mat can rent one for a dollar or visit the studio’s boutique store to shop for accessories such as yoga mats and water bottles, as well as exercise clothing for those who forgot to dress their shadow before class.
