Walden is one of only two North American instructors to hold an advanced senior certificate in Iyengar yoga, a slow, methodical style that emphasizes proper alignment. If you think you have the chops to join her intensive weekly class series, you’ll need to be patient. Each one of her exclusive workshops is currently sold out, and existing students get first dibs when new sessions begin. Word to the wise: Get on the waiting list now.
Sensing stress in their student body, the management and faculty at Down Under School of Yoga brainstormed ways they could acknowledge the current political climate while maintaining the principles of yoga.

Boston was asked to vote for the fitness teachers that move them most and Kate made the list.

From Beachwood Canyon to Brookline, Massachusetts
In 1996, while hiking the northern section of the Hollywood Hills, Natasha Rizopoulos had a “moment.” In that reflection, in the balm of Beachwood Canyon, she experienced a bit of a homecoming.

Yes, entering the world of motherhood is beautiful, but it's also overwhelming and at times, isolating. Finding places to connect with your mom community is imperative to a happy first year and beyond. Whether you meet up for a cup of coffee at the library or strike up conversation while getting your sweat on at the gym, surrounding yourself with moms who are going through a similar experience will only help make parenthood more enjoyable.
LOCAL INSTRUCTORS ARE PUSHING FOR A MORE INCLUSIVE AND DIVERSE YOGA COMMUNITY.
In studios, community centers, churches, and schools around Boston, yoga is changing.
A small but determined group of local teachers are challenging ideas of who a yoga student is, and what a yoga body looks like. They’re guiding yoga away from stereotypes, and toward a future of acceptance, inclusivity, and diversity—toward some of the ideals preached by the practice itself.
