At Magnolia Yoga Studio we offer quality HOT yoga classes for beginners to advance practitioners all week long with a little variety to liven things up as your week unfolds! Check out our class offerings, duration of each class and recommendations.
We realize your schedule is dynamic often filled with many responsibilities to your family, work, friends & school. Therefore, we have designed classes with the same content & 26.2 method but delivered within various convenient time frames of 60 mins, 75 mins & 90 mins.
We encourage you to open up your schedule and pencil in the times that work for you from week to week!
An abbreviated 26.2 method class offered only once a day Monday – Friday at 12 noon. Good for the regular practitioner who is on the go that day but cannot & WILL NOT go without their yoga! Also good for folks who work close by who can come & take refuge in class during their lunch hour. We welcome artists, students and service industry workers as well who might have more time at 12 noon for their yoga life. And lastly the 12 noon 60min class could be a good introductory class for people who are very nervous about their first round of yoga classes!
A 26.2 method class very well rounded, offered once a day Monday-Friday, ideal for the beginner and the seasoned practitioner. Try our 75 min class Monday-Friday at 6:15am.
The original 26.2 class format and the most ideal amount of time to dedicate to your yoga practice for both beginners and advance practitioners, offered once a day Monday-Friday. Come try our 90 min class at 5:45pm and on Saturday at 10am and Sundays at 8am.
We all know Monday’s can be a big drag so for a bit of extra motivation all classes on Monday will have a music playlist to accompany your yoga practice!
On Fridays at 4:30pm & Sundays at 8am only we are offering an Ashtanga inspired Warm-Flow class with Ryan Stevens.
