Soul Yoga is a fusion hot power yoga studio that sits right on the Swamp Rabbit Trail. If you haven’t done hot yoga before the class is conducted in a 95 degree room and sweat is a guarantee. Soul Yoga also has a class called Sculpt that blends yoga with weights which help build strength.
First off, this studio is N-I-C-E. Although it sits right on the Swamp Rabbit Trail if you need to drive over it’s a tiny bit removed from the main hustle and bustle of downtown. It’s in a rectangular brick building that is shared with other businesses and you may think to yourself “am I really about to get zen in there?” The answer is yes.
When you walk in you walk through a boutique area – just remain focused because you’ll want to buy a lot of things! That leads you to the front desk. A running water feature immediately ups the ambiance in the check in area. Lastly, the amenities like large locker rooms, complementary towels, private showers and lavender infused water for spraying your mat really make this studio stand out to me and make getting ready before and after class easy.
There are two studios, one is smaller than the other and since I typically take class in the middle of the day I’ve only been in the smaller one (it fits about 20 people or so). The classes are called “power flow” and I love the pace. To be honest, I almost gave up on yoga because I never felt challenged and often left class feeling like I didn’t exercise. This is different. The flow is quick, seamless and set to music. In the classes I have taken there have been no clunky transitions and you’re not sitting in any one pose for long amounts of time. The next day, I’m definitely sore and feeling like I really used my muscles.
The studio has a wide variety of class options: an express 45 minute class, 60-75 minute classes, sculpt, unique workshops, $5 class options on Friday’s and tons of special events. So it’s likely you’ll find something that interests you. They also offer options for multiple price points, from $5 classes all the way up to unlimited monthly plans. PS, there also right next to Swamp Rabbit Crossfit and the co-work marketing space called The Wheelhouse. So go ahead check out their full site here!
Until next time!
