Their classes offered are minimal, beginner level and expensive. The teachers seem to not have a solid educational base and I am afraid I am going to hurt myself in some of their classes due to their lack of knowledge and focus. While some teachers are completely satisfactory, I am extremely disappointed in this studio and will not be gong back-- or even finishing up my membership. This area is dense with yoga studios.. go anywhere else. seriously.

I most often take the intermediate-level ""CoreFlow"" class designed and taught by Ruth Anne. It is a physically demanding class where we safely work with (or often in my case, towards) arm balances, advanced backbends, and inversions. Ruth Anne has a seemingly encyclopedic knowledge of anatomy and yoga from her decades of practice. She offers precise and helpful guidance at both beginner and more advanced levels. I also like the mat Pilates and early-morning, before-work yoga classes.
The teachers at this studio are down-to-earth and welcoming. The classes are designed and paced well, allowing me to deeply relax after my workout. I also like the warm feel of the studio. I appreciate that the ""deeper"" practices of yoga, such as meditation and breathing practices, are presented in a low-key way, as a natural part of the classes.

I know this studio is really popular, but I was really disappointed. This is sort of ""yoga light."" The classes aren't very long or difficult, and I ended up feeling sort of bored. Plus, the classes are more expensive than longer ones at other studios. If you are new to yoga, maybe you'll enjoy a shorter, ""lighter"" class, but eventually, I suggest trying some of the other studios in town.
