Since the ladies of Wellington Group Marketing & PR love all things fitness, we never miss an opportunity to check out a new workout class around town. Our latest review comes from our Marketing & PR Guru Rachel and her totally zen experience at Hyde Park Yoga Company.
I’ve been practicing yoga on and off for about 3 years, so when I first moved to the Hyde Park area and discovered Hyde Park Yoga Company, I literally geeked out. From the moment you walk through the door, all of the day’s worries instantly disappear. The quaint space is ideal for a yoga class and gives off such an incredible vibe – it’s almost as if you’re practicing yoga in your own living room (minus the obnoxious couches and chairs that are always in your way).
I signed up for the Vin-Yin class, which is combination of Vinyasa and Yin Yoga and was seriously “Yogi Heaven,” as their website describes. The first half of the class focuses on practicing a steady sequence of your typical yoga poses that are meant to get your heart rate pounding. The room is warm and you’ll definitely be breaking into a sweat. But as the class goes on, you eventually enter into a deep stretch and meditation sequence that instantly cools your body down. It was a total zen moment and I can’t wait to go back to experience it again.
In addition to the Vin-Yin class, Hyde Park Yoga Company also offers classes that teach Gentle, Hatha Flow, Vinyasa and even Yoga 101 for beginners. My next venture will be the Yoga For Runners class, which includes a group morning run lead by trainers from Team Spiridon followed by special yoga class, specifically designed for runners, that focuses on strength, flexibility and core work. How awesome is that?
