Yoga in Motion helps students of all skill levels and body types to forge limber joints with heat-generating yoga classes. The studio’s Vinyasa-style yoga classes teach attendees to synchronize breath with movement during powerfully flowing pose transitions. Intro to Gentle Yoga Flow sessions begin with floor-based stretches, after which the studio's instructors lead attendees through a slow-paced series of foundational poses while emphasizing proper alignment and seamlessly flowing movement. Intermediate Flow classes challenge students with deeper stretches and a more vigorous sequence of asanas that, much like the legal definition of a vegetable, changes daily. Core Focus sessions strengthen the abdominal muscles and rebar frame that support the body's posture. Students can spread their yoga mats atop the practice space's timbered expanse of wood flooring and use the mirror-lined walls to practice their staring-contest skills.
Yoga in Motion
It's true that practicing yoga can result in a stronger core, improved posture, and other physical benefits. But at Yoga in Motion, those benefits are just the tip of the iceberg. The studio's teachers also work to give students effective tools to de-stress the mind, helping them find emotional peace even during stressful times like finals week at school or shouting week at work. There are welcoming classes for people at every step of the journey to wellness—the gentle postures of beginner classes bring stress relief and loosen tight joints, while more advanced classes such as power yoga take students deeper into their yoga practice.
Yoga isn't the only type of healing that goes on in this peaceful space, which is lined with blond wood floors and walls the color of mahogany. The studio also hosts dance therapy and sacred chanting sessions. A holistic healer named Maria conducts Pranic healing sessions, working to optimize the body's energies through touch-free energy work.
