Discover the tried and true pillars that set us apart.
Body By Yoga has already worked with tens of thousands of men and women, and now it’s your turn to discover yoga’s amazing benefits.
Created for the inflexible.
Every class provides modifications for anyone who can’t touch their toes. Great for those who are brand new to fitness as well as anyone who works out and has tight muscles.
Mindfulness matters. It can help improve your focus, your game, and your inner calm. We just don’t add that to any of our classes. We focus on the physical benefits of yoga to help you move better, feel better, and perform better.
STRAIGHT TO THE POINT INSTRUCTION.
We are honored to carry yoga’s torch and to recognize it’s traditions. But instead of phrases like “melt your heart,” or “root yourself to the earth,” we’ll share specific tips like which muscles to engage and where you should (and shouldn’t) be feeling each exercise.
Part workout, part physical therapy session, and part educational experience.
Our classes are a workout first and foremost, no matter the level, but you’ll also learn the benefits of every pose while you practice. You’ll never wonder if you’re doing a pose correctly, or why you’re doing it in the first place.
Teaching vs Preaching
Sometimes an early morning stretch is just that: a great way to to open up your hips, alleviate back pain, and improve your mobility for the day. We do not add themes like gratitude, balance, or unity to our classes. We like those ideas. We support those ideas. We just don’t think they need to be a part of your workout.
Targeted Routines For Every Goal
Instead of a one size fits all approach to yoga, we have different classes for specific goals. Need yoga for back pain? Check. Looking for a short morning workout? Check. Yoga for running? For weight loss? For recovering in between workouts? Yep, we have those too. Select the yoga class that matches your goals and level of fitness.
Our unique style of yoga.
We’ve created a unique style of yoga called Slow Burn Power Yoga which combines Hatha, Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Power Yoga with bodyweight exercises and physical therapy.
Typical yoga classes use fast moving flows to add a “cardio” element to yoga. With less time for cues in between poses, most yoga classes tend to focus almost exclusively on the breath, which is great for stress relief and improving breathing, but has little application to proper muscle engagement. Instead, we recognize that most of our students can get better cardio from walking, running, and sports.
That’s why our classes move a little slower and emphasize proper technique above all else in order to give you the time to open up your muscles, find the right modifications and adjustments, and work deeper into challenging poses.
The result is a low impact bodyweight training program that is going to push you. If you weren’t sure you could sweat from yoga then you better think again!
