I’ve always enjoyed yoga. When I found Moksha Yoga, a studio dedicated to yoga, I was excited. I had taken classes at the gym, but it is not the same as taking a class from a yogi who has been trained specifically in this art. Plus, the entire studio at Moksha Yoga is peaceful, relaxing and ‘green’. The facility is energy efficient, uses green cleaning products and makes use of many recycled materials.
It is very different than walking off the weight room floor, or cardio theater, into a tiled exercise room to do yoga to new age music with strains of gym music in the background. Attending a class at Moksha Yoga is a peaceful and rejuvenating experience from the moment you walk in the door and take off your shoes, to the final ‘Savasana’ of your practice.
According to Moksha Yoga Northern Kentucky, hot Moksha yoga “stretches, strengthens and tones the muscles while detoxifying the body and calming the mind.”
I started with a class once a week and even that 75 minutes left my mind feeling calmer through out the week and my body leaner. Trust me. I have three crazy kids. That yoga class helped keep me sane! The hot class is also fantastic for your skin. Moksha Yoga also offers classes for kids and expectant mothers.
Speaking of kids, my younger two (ages 6 and 4) loved the kids class. They learned basic poses while I attended an hour long yoga class in the next room. My 6 year old even stopped in the parking lot after to lay on the sidewalk and show me his favorite pose. The Northern Kentucky location offers classes for younger kids, while older ones may take classes at the Cincinnati studio.
The two locations, Northern Kentucky at 2428 High Street off Buttermilk Pike, and Cincinnati at 3527 Columbia Parkway, offer a variety of classes, some of which include:
- glow in the dark yoga
- hot yoga
- prenatal yoga
- yoga with music
- kids yoga
- non-heated yoga
And, in less than a week, Moksha Yoga opens their third location in Clifton!
