Yoga, the Practice.
Yoga is one of the oldest holistic healthcare systems in existence, with roots dating back almost 5,000 years. Founded in India, the Sanskrit word 'yoga' literally means 'union'. The intent of yoga is to form a vibrant connection between body, mind and spirit, creating a lasting, integrative wellness program that one can cultivate for a lifetime. Today, yoga, in forms both classical and contemporary, has been embraced worldwide for its unparalleled health and healing benefits, available to people of all ages, sizes and levels of fitness.
A yoga practice consists of physical postures called asanas, breathing exercises called pranayama, and elements of meditation. Dynamically incorporated into a whole, yoga combines a compelling physical workout, improving strength, flexibility, balance and endurance, with a profound mental wellness component that conveys focus, clarity, and composure long after practice has ended.
Yoga, at HYP.
Our Wellesley yoga space is filled with soft, ambient lighting and joint-friendly, anti-microbial sprung flooring. It is heated by a custom designed, state-of-the-art system, uniquely developed to the specifications of the particular environmental space, that provides the perfect blend of heat, humidity and fresh airflow.
While foundationally based in hot flow yoga, all of HYP's yoga teachers are enthusiastically encouraged to bring a distinctive sense of inventiveness to class, drawing from their own life experience and unique approach to practice. As a result, each class is an original, constantly re-created to be safe, informative, fun and vigorously enjoyed in the moment.
We offer a full schedule of morning, evening and weekend classes, with challenging, yet accessible instruction for students new to yoga, those who have been cultivating their practice for years and every manner of inspired mover in between. Classes include our dynamic vinyasa-based Flow (heated to 90-95 degrees), Flow, Strength + Sculpt, an athletic, strength-based practice that incorporates light weights, Restorative Flow, a gentle flow sequence followed by replenishing poses supported by blocks, bolsters and blankets and ongoing, seasonally-based Flow Fundamentals introductory 5 week series.
Set a clear intention to come to your mat as often as possible, and you will strengthen your body, center your mind and unfold in ways you might never have thought possible!

Pilates, the Practice.
Gymnast. Bodybuilder. Boxer. Circus performer. Brilliant movement pioneer and innovator. Joseph (Joe) H. Pilates, and the enduringly masterful work named after him, remains all that and so much more!
Developed in the 1920s, this pioneering method combines the best of Eastern and Western practices and philosophies, creating a system focused on building controlled flexibility and strength for the entire body, without building bulk or stressing the joints. Pilates conditioning develops core abdominal and back strength through a series of comprehensive exercises executed on a mat or on highly specialized equipment, while closely supervised and adjusted by a certified trainer. With an emphasis on breath, posture and body awareness and balance, each exercise is performed with total focus on accurate form and quality of movement. Due to the personalized, form-intensive nature of Pilates, apparatus-based training is always conducted in small group classes of no more than six participants, or in one-on-one, standing private, duet or trio sessions.
