Despite it's highly "commercial" flavor, Yoga Shelter is a convenient option for individuals staying in Southfield and Birmingham. The vibe here is trendy and evokes a sort of "see and be seen" energy, though it is far from pretentious. Each locker room features showers, basic toiletry items such as cotton swabs, body wash and lotion, and storage space for your belongings.
The studio is located 10 miles from our featured hotels in Birmingham and Southfield, on the corner of 11 Mile and Main Street. You'll find it on the 2nd floor, above Leos Coney. A single class is $20 and mat and towel rentals are available for an additional fee. Water and other refreshments are available for around $2-$4.
Call the studio or check their website for more detailed information and class times. Otherwise there are typically 4-6 classes offered each day with the earliest beginning at 6a and the latest at 8:30p.
ABOUT THE YOGA
Yoga Shelter offers a variety of classes for all levels and abilities. Specializing in vinyasa yoga, also known as "power yoga," the classes focus on strength, balance and connecting movements with breath. "Shelter Strong" is the signature class and the room is heated to approximately 87 degrees. "Shelter Synergy" is also heated (85) and is a fusion class blending vinyasa with longer hold poses. "Shelter Steady" (85F) is slower yet with a focus on endurance. The "Shelter Still" class is Yin Yoga and is not overly heated (73F). It's a gentle, slow moving, class. There are a few other class types offered. Visit the website to learn more.
