Founded by a pediatrician, Yoga Moga focuses on overall wellness and healing for all ages through energizing classes. Mat movers can stretch their sinews by mixing and matching five classes, such as hot Vinyasa flow, set in a studio warmed to 85 degrees, which is designed to improve muscular elasticity and sweat out toxins in a fluid series of poses, or yoga quickie sessions, a 45-minute lunchtime dip for busy workers or impatient chakras.
Friendly, experienced instructors lead prenatal yoga, which grants mothers-to-be solace from the aches of pregnancy through safe, gentle postures, as well as children's yoga classes that introduce cherubs to the basics of yoga with animated imagery and games such as Pin the Tail on the Downward-Facing Dog.
Fledgling yogis at Yoga Moga get to practice proper alignment and hone breathing techniques upon sleek hardwood floors within a spacious studio. Check the class schedule for specific times and dates.
With a PhD in nursing from the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, registered nurse Carol Dean Baker understands that wellness involves more than getting a physical every year. That’s why, in addition to her nursing practice, she helms PureBalance, a yoga studio dedicated to building a health-oriented community.
The studio’s eclectic offerings range from Vinyasa sessions in an 85-degree room to basic Hatha classes focusing on breath work and meditation. Flexibility-enhancing sessions emphasize deep, slow stretches of major muscle groups, and condensed classes pack a full course’s punch into just 45 minutes without resorting to cheap time savers such as eliminating the exhalation portion of each breath.
