Blog_post_yoga_style_louisville-1Finding a yoga class used to be quite simple: grab a mat and jump into any local studio for a little “om.” Lucky for you, there are a plethora of yoga class options nowadays – including right here at Baptiste Milestone. 

Whether you’re looking for a little relaxation, muscle tone or stretching, we’ve got the right yoga class (or classes) for you. Take our quiz to find out which yoga class best fits your personality and lifestyle.

On a Saturday afternoon, you prefer to:

A. Go on a walk. Your body is feeling tight from a long week, you need to stretch out and get some exercise.
B. Do some housework, take a nap and maybe go on a walk. A little bit of everything goes a long way.
C. Find a trail and burn some energy. Tired or not, exerting some energy is a much-needed break from reality.
D. Do absolutely nothing. Maybe some light reading, but you need to mentally unwind.

A perfect vacation looks like a:

A. Spa weekend with friends full of relaxation, massages and good conversation.
B. Beach vacation with your significant other balancing good food and a calm atmosphere.
C. Backpacking trip to a new location you’ve never visited before full of adventure.
D. Weekend away by yourself at your absolute favorite location in the world.

Your ideal yoga-inspired group fitness class is one that:

A. Helps to release layers of muscle tension, relieving aches and pains.
B. Promotes balance, flexibility, strength and relaxation.
C. Challenges your inner yogi. You’ve done this a time or two and need something a little more advanced.
D. Encourages full body relaxation and a deep meditative state.

If you chose mostly A’s, you should try Deep Release Yoga class – a class that opens your body gently yet deeply, releasing layers of muscle tension in the back, hips, shoulders and core, an excellent cross training class for athletes and those looking for relief from the aches and pains of daily living. 

If you chose mostly B’s, you should try Gentle Yoga class – a class based on forms of movement that promote balance, flexibility, strength and relaxation through various postures and techniques. 

If you chose mostly C’s, you should try Vinyasa Yoga class – a class that links yoga poses together in a sequence and flow along with your breath, requiring prior yoga experience.

If you chose mostly D’s, you should try Nidra Yoga/Relaxation Yoga class – a class guided by a relaxation and meditation technique intended to induce full body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness.

And all A’s, B’s, C’s and D’s should take an Intro to Yoga class – a class that teaches the fundamentals of yoga practice. 

Take a look at the group exercise calendar to find a yoga class that fits into your lifestyle and schedule, and join us for some yoga-inspired stretching, relaxation and exercise. Namaste.
