YogaWorks' expert instructors open the door to litheness with a variety of yoga stretching, flowing, and strengthening classes for pupils of all levels. Harnessing a minimum of 500 hours of Yoga Alliance training, each instructor focuses on the needs of the students as they develop their posing prowess and bullet-catching skills. Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow classes feature a dynamic series of postures to create traditional yoga workouts that hone alignment, concentration, and body awareness. More exotic stretching sessions include therapeutic Iyengar yoga—a prop-based style ideal for students recovering from injuries or those in chronic pain—and the more advanced Kundalini yoga, which repeats motions over and over in time with breathing exercises to sharpen concentration and perfect complicated group high-fives. Pilates mat classes allow exercisers to strengthen the core and improve their posture.
