Being sore from my previous adventures from bouncing at Sky Zone, then climbing at Hangar18 and ending my evening with a HIIT session at Beastie, I woke up the next morning sore and in need of some stretching and relaxation. I looked up on ClassPass and saw Haute Yogi MB was available at 830am. I’ve taken several classes previously at Haute Yogi and have enjoyed seeing how the studio has transformed since it first opened up. It’s a beautiful studio by the beach that has several amazing instructors. They offer traditional Bikram style yoga classes to Vinyasa flow, sculpt classes and now high intensity interval training which I still haven’t been able to attend as of yet. First thing I love about Haute Yogi is that the studio is small, giving it a more personalized and intimate environment. Smaller classes allow the instructor to give more individualized attention to each student, helping to improve your own practice. Second, I love that their classes are slightly to extremely heated, which gives your muscles warmth and every opportunity to advance into a deeper stretch. And Third, I love the personalities all the instructors exude. They all have different styles and levels in their teachings, all are encouraging, friendly and personable. The one thing that deters me from coming to Haute Yogi more frequently is the parking. However the instructors are so inspiring that I give myself plenty of time to find parking so I can make it to their classes. This past week I decided to take Erika’s class. Her practice focuses more on handstands and arm balances, which is something that I’ve been trying to incorporate more into my practice the past couple of years. I believe by taking her class more often, I can achieve this goal. Haute Yogi is a great studio for both beginners and advanced practitioners wanting to further their study in yoga. Hopefully within the next year I will be able to hold a handstand for longer than one second, but as for now I’m going to appreciate my current yoga practice and enjoy the journey.
