Walking into The Yoga Factory, we could tell this wasn’t your typical yoga studio. It was warm and brightly colored, like walking into a different world!Β They are a Baptiste affiliate studio that focuses on physical practice, meditation and self inquiry to transform your body and mind. Baptiste YogaΒ encourages those who practice to reclaim their full potential, discover creativity, awaken passion, and create authenticity, confidence and new possibilities.

Grab your mat and get ready for a fast-paced yoga practice! The room has a concrete floor taped off to help organize larger classes. If you prefer to watch yourself and check your poses, head to the front of the class! There are large mirrors at the front of each row. Instructors will also walk around and make adjustments as necessary.

We jumped right into class and get ready to sweat! Move quickly through the sun salutations with many familiar poses – mountain, chair, the warriors, extended side angle, half moon, extended hand-to-toe, crow, lord of the dance. There were also many opportunities for more experienced yogis to practice their side crows or head stands. All levels were welcome!Β Although it helped being familiar with some of the names of the poses. After several core strengthening poses and exercises at the end of class, it was time for savasana. During this resting pose, the instructor passed out cold, peppermint scented towels to place over your forehead or face to help relax and reset the body.

The studio shares a space withΒ Shepherd Chiropractic, offering many different techniques, therapies and homeopathic prescriptions. It’s like a one-stop shop for health and wellness!

The Yoga Factory also offers introductory courses. It’s a four week program with two classes a week to assist beginners into their practice. If you’re interested in becoming a teacher, stop by the studio or the website to learn more.
