19 Jan The Right Fit
As we delve into a new year, we often have ambitious goals – especially when it comes to our health and exercise regimen. If there’s one workout I suggest you try or revisit in 2014, it’s yoga. Not only are the physical benefits amazing, but also the mental and spiritual aspects of the practice can truly change your life! The greatest part of yoga is that every person can benefit – age, skill level or ailments are not limiting factors. You just have to find the right class. In Brentwood alone, there are over 250 classes offered each week, so let’s explore what our neighborhood has to offer!
If you are looking for variety…try Corepower Yoga. From intro to advanced, to heated classes and yoga with weights, Corepower offers a multitude of class types and times to cater to most every person. In addition to 2 spacious yoga rooms, the studio offers full locker room amenities for those on the go. A great perk for new students is a complimentary week pass to experience as many classes and instructors as they want!
