Most Pretentious Non-Yoga Classes Ever!.
From the unfriendly atmosphere to the stench of both old and new sweat, this place offers the most non-yoga classes ever. Firstly, the place stinks and there is a thick air of moisture and sweat in the studio. It is unclear which side of the room faces forward as we wait for the instructor. Students chat and others show off their acrobatic skills. The teacher has a thick Boston accent, and a rough way of speaking to boot. The class starts and there is no focus on the breath. Students are rushed through poses all while getting a sermon from this harsh-voice the moves about the room forcing students into tight positions. Students moan loudly, making any meditation in motion impossible. The room gets hotter and sweat is dripping everywhere. The teacher continues his monologue. Students are moaning and dripping while others break from the mold proudly doing headstands and such. I try to move with the rhythm of my breathing but the teacher quickly reminded me that "I was in the front of the room and everybody's watching (me)". I would recommend this class, not if you are looking to develop a yoga practice but if you like showing off, smelling like mildew and being talked at all the while. Enjoy!
