  • Yoga at Change
    Where as many people prefer to chat with others during lunchtime, patrons of Yoga at Change look forward to quieting their minds. These 30-minute meditation sessions occur three times a week, and like the rest of the non-profit's curriculum, strive to inject some introspection into otherwise bustling days. Though "yoga" is in the studio's title, meditation figures heavily in many of its class and workshop offerings—Slow Flow yoga mixes it with Hatha poses, and Integral lessons combine chanting, meditation, and restful movements. Mothers can also channel meditative energy during Mom Baby Yoga and Yoga with Babysitting, specialty classes that allow them to engage in relaxing postures and meditation while staying connected to their little ones, who spend the sessions stretching out with their parent, sleeping, or playing. The holistic philosophy of Yoga at Change is that all people have the right to spiritual insight, a healthy body, and a peaceful mind. The instructors strive to accomplish this through a blend of self-reflection, breath, and physical balance. The staff believes that there are several roads to wellness, and that all of them should be accessible, regardless of the client's skill level. They schedule several discounted or free demonstrations, and also offer a scholarship program to fund yoga practice for those in need of financial aid. Students attend classes based on their desired intensity—gentle, moderate, or vigorous. They can also register for workshops that address a slew of alternative health topics, which in the past have included treating lower back pain.

  • Bikram Yoga San Mateo
    Besides a love of yoga, the 16 instructors at Bikram Hot Yoga San Mateo all share one thing in common: high-level Bikram certification. Upon completing intensive training to learn the 26-posture sequence, the studio's yogis now lead students through it in a 105-degree room. The heat flushes toxins and stretches the body so practitioners can perform poses like the half-moon and the tree, which is intended to be held until families of birds roost on their heads. Instructors assess and help improve each pupil's posing so their bodies reap the most benefits possible, from toning muscles to burning calories. The studio hosts classes every day of the week, with no fewer than four sessions per day.
