Core Power Yoga Review Snapshot: Kory’s Review

First Impression: Being a yoga teacher, I always enjoy taking other classes, especially at different studios with different teachers. I have studied and taught many styles of yoga, and have always enjoyed classes that are heated, particularly ones that flow and focus on strength. At the Uptown Corepower Yoga studio in Chicago, we participated in a C2 Heated Power Yoga Class, heated to 102 degrees and it felt awesome!

As I walked in, I couldn’t help but be in awe of the beauty and size of the facility. A blazing fireplace, 2 large yoga studios, a stunning locker room, a free towel and mat upon my first visit. It was all good! The class itself flowed nicely, incorporating some basic postures with more demanding headstands and abdominal work. I found that a down dog every now and then was a nice break from the taxing heat which left me a bit winded. There is something about a heated class that feels so cleansing and exhausting and relaxing all at the same time. As I left the studio and stepped outside into the cold and rainy Chicago afternoon, all I wanted to do was take a nice hot shower and a long nap. My body felt rejuvenated and my mind was clear. It was a wonderful experience and I would love to take other classes that are offered at this studio, or at any of the 60+ studios around the United States!

New to Yoga? I would recommend trying an Intro class which is offered at all Corepower Yoga studios. We attended a level 2 class, and even though you are encouraged to do your best, and rest when needed, a more beginner yoga class will teach you the fundamentals and form of the postures, insuring that you won’t injure yourself on your yoga journey.
