Traverse City Attractions: Yen Yoga and Fitness won first place in our Red Hot Best Yoga/Pilates Studio of Northern Michigan 2011 for a reason. Conveniently located in downtown Traverse City, Yen Yoga and Fitness is the perfect place to improve your mental and physical health while easing stress and having fun—free from judgment or intimidation. Whether you’re in Traverse City for a weekend, a month or a lifetime, the studio is worth checking out.
What sets this studio apart from other yoga centers and health clubs? Its philosophy which is reflected by the kind and knowledgeable staff as well as by the clean, nondenominational design of the studio itself (They don’t preach any religion, only respect for one’s body!). “Yen Yoga and Fitness sees itself as a part of the Traverse City community and that its main goal is to inspire students to improve themselves and leave feeling rejuvenated and ready to spread that positivity to the greater Traverse City community,” says studio director Sara Harding. Anyone who has taken one of the high-energy spinning classes at Yen Yoga and Fitness knows this powerfully good endorphin high and most likely left wanting more.
However, Yen Yoga and Fitness isn’t just for the health nuts and hard-core yogis. Harding points out that Yen Yoga and Fitness is a great option for those who may be new to yoga, Pilates or cycling, those who have been intimidated by such classes in the past or those who simply aren’t used to exercise. She explains, “Our staff makes fitness accessible to people of all skill levels and health backgrounds.” Teachers adapt each class to the needs of the students, rather than the other way around, so that everyone can have a fulfilling experience. She encourages newcomers to try out as many of the 100+ classes the studio offers per week as they’d like, in order to find what fits best for them.
You’ll see Yen Yoga and Fitness all over Traverse City this summer as it fulfills its community integrated philosophy by participating in events such as Smart Commute week and the Traverse City Film Festival. Come celebrate the studio’s one-year anniversary with a week of unlimited free classes from Monday, June 13th to Sunday, June 19th—the perfect time to jump start a summer of health and well-being in downtown Traverse City!
