  • The Yoga Circle
    The Yoga Circle showcases the diverse practices that fall under yoga’s umbrella, earning it Best Yoga Studio in Birmingham by CityVoter in 2009. Their self-titled Circle class offers up a disciplinary Baedeker in all things yoga. Taught by a different member of the studio’s 15-instructor team each time, the course exposes students to styles such as Kundalini and Vinyasa. Alternatively, students can delve more deeply into individual modalities with sessions including Ashtanga, which hinges on the muscle-building plank position, or hot yoga, held in studios heated up to 105 degrees, or the temperature of the world’s most unlucky ice-cream cone.

  • The Yoga Circle
    Yoga Circle Downtown's instructors lead a diverse selection of athletically paced and calming yoga styles that cater to students of all skill levels. The studio?s schedule includes advanced and fundamental classes, such as Alignment & Form, where instructors demonstrate poses, emphasizing correct posture and positioning for each asana, instilling proper technique in beginning students and recently animated sculptures alike. Students in yoga flow sessions achieve a more vigorous workout by using strong breaths and athletic movements to transition from pose to pose, raising heart rates and bolstering stamina. During Kundalini yoga, instructors promote inner well-being by incorporating time for chants and calming meditation, which leaves students? minds as centered as a hula hoop snug around an overinflated beach ball. Students gather for classes in an airy practice space with lofty ceilings and intricately painted pillars that keep the floor from floating away during class, accessorizing the room's wooden flooring with either their own yoga mats or a rental from the studio ($1).

  • Spa Moksha
    Spa Moksha's staffers blend the benefits of medical care and spa treatments to create their method of mind-body medicine. They base it on scientific knowledge garnered by a cohort of doctors that includes Dr. Deepak Chopra. On one side of the coin, The Foundation for Mind-Body Medicine specializes in health services provided by experts in modern and integrated medicine. Based on each individual’s body chemistry, the experts design a personal treatment plan that can address maladies ranging from stress and chronic pain to diabetes, allergies, and cardiovascular disease. On the other side of this coin resides not Abe Lincoln, Ben Franklin, or the guy who makes more money than anyone—the machinist at the US Mint—but the spa portion of Spa Moksha, which approaches wellness with medical and nonmedical spa treatments. The expert technicians employ practices that range from Ayurvedic therapy and nutrition consultations to facials, skincare, mani-pedis, and hair removal via lasers or waxing. The spa staff can also eschew the typical clinical atmosphere to treat clients with massages on the rooftop gazebo, a private space that allows patients to enjoy a relaxing massage amid the warmth of the sun and the kiss of cool breezes.

Q&A with Marjorie Jean Anderson, Principle Instructor And Owner Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated? Regular practice with hands on adjustments will help give you the tools to combat your daily stresses. And just like life, the practice can be difficult some days and easier on other days. The practice helps get you through hard times in your personal-, business-, and family-life. So, it's not just a exercise it's a form of movement therapy. Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain?? Why or why not? Tapas is a word used in yoga which means to burn. We must burn old latent impressions, and in order to heal we have to feel. We as people tend to avoid the things that are difficult in our lives just like certain yoga postures, but the practice at a shala (yoga home) gives you support. What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student? A cardio workout, a restorative release, or both at the same time. It's a grounding, growing experiences. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? MJ yoga gives you the ability to feel like a kid again, while finding alignment with a exercise you can do your whole life.
