Ra Yoga is a one-stop shop for all of your yoga needs. What sets Ra apart from other yoga studios is that it offers both heated and non-heated classes. If you are looking for a class that stays away from the heat, try a Restorative class or Yin Stretch. Both of these classes go at a slower pace and will help guide your practice and make you feel more relaxed than ever before. Or turn up the heat and check out Hot Ra 1, a class that will introduce you to the heat. There also classes for the more advanced which include Vinyasa, Yogalates and Ra’s most challenging class, Ra Strength. A great addition to Ra Yoga is that they also offer yoga classes for children and childcare.
