The studio offers classes such as Restorative Yoga which aims to promote deep relaxation while holding the poses for longer periods of time, with the help of props; HIIT the Mat that’s a combination of barre, yoga, kickboxing, and strength/HIIT exercises; and Mobility Flow that incorporates blocks, balls, straps, and even the wall to help release tightness in muscles and connective tissues, restoring circulation and mobility throughout the body.
Iris Yoga is notably popular for its kids and family yoga classes. “The secret is playfulness, keeping your child motivated, excited, and moving. This is not your typical yoga class, we will get children singing, dancing, skipping, marching, jogging, shaking, laughing, hopping, limbo-ing, and storytelling ALL while practicing yoga,” it states on the website.
