The classes at Prana Power Yoga are going to wake you up and make you sweat. This is not a fluffy, relaxing class - this class is designed to get you moving and flowing. A tad on the spendy side - they do give a student discount of $12 per class, but no intro specials for us.
The free class pass from Sadhana fit perfectly into my budget. I discovered them online while the roomies and I were deciding where we were going to take classes this week. We wound up taking advantage of the free class trial with their Friday Night Flow class. It was a blast! It was also crowded! I'm glad we got there early to stake out our claim.
We took a Saturday class at the Brookline Yoga studio, which although it was fun, I thought they should extend more of a break to students. They had no student discounts, so we wound up paying the regular $13 per drop in fee. They did offer a class card for $11 per class if you purchased 6 classes.
The Blissful Monkey Yoga Studio offers a pretty good deal if you can swing yoga at lunch. That's not always possible with my class schedule, but usually at least once a week I can swing the class, have enough time to hose off and be at my next class on time. It's worth the $10.
You just can't beat the $6 community classes held once a month at the Roslindale Yoga Studio. We just attended one last week and thought it was pretty good. The class is taught by an instructor in training, so you're still getting a good workout and stretch. We enjoyed it lots and plan to be back for the next one in February.
Since we've been on the quest to keep somewhat healthy while away at school, the roomies and I have been pretty good at finding out all the local yoga spots that offer student discounts. I've become somewhat of a yoga addict because of them and how it makes me feel. I mentioned to one of them that my grandma should take yoga and they hooked me up to something specifically designed for the elderly called Elder Yoga. I found out more about this video through their distributor Well Streeet Station and ordered it for my grandma. She loves it! She was skeptical at first, but my mom convinced her it was a good thing. My grandma is in her mid 70's and can do most of the poses right from her chair. You don't need to be bendy to do it and still get the benefit.
The Belmont Yoga Studio is an intimate, small studio that limits its class sizes, which is a super plus in my book. We took a couple of thier Iyengar classes, which are my favorite. The instructor was friendly, calm and did a great job with us.
We had a great time taking our classes at the Soni Yoga center. Their hatha yoga was great for my spirit and something I desperately needed. Their student discount of 2 classes for $15 was a pretty good deal as well.
Because we're students (and poor), the roomies and I took the 4 days of yoga for $20 at the Yoga for You studio. I have to say, it was a great experience! The instructors were all so great with us and I felt very welcomed there. The classes are kick-butt, there's no two ways about it. I discovered I really like it when the studios are hot - it makes me sweat like a pig, but I feel so good afterwards. Great, great experience.
Not bad. Since the roomies and I have been hitting up every yoga studio in a 15 mile radius, I feel I can now objectively rate how they each stand up to one another. The Yoga Now studio wasn't a bad experience at all. The studio was clean, the instructors friendly - but - the class was way too crowded for my taste. They also didn't offer much of a special price to students. $13 per drop in is a little high for this starving student.
