2017 BEST YOGA OR PILATES STUDIO: BLDG7 YOGA

Perhaps it’s their philosophy that visitors at Bldg. 7 Yoga love. “Yoga is not about ‘touching’ your toes – that’s what happens along the way, while uncovering yourself from the shield or persona we have all learned to hide behind. At Bldg. 7 Yoga your body will transform; you will change destructive patterns; your mind will be infused with life; your relationships will be truer, deeper, and more fulfilling,” explains owner Linda Zogas. Sign us up! Voters may tell you diversity and a holistic approach set Bldg. 7 apart. Clients can choose different yoga modalities on different days, depending on their mood. They can purchase monthly memberships and beyond or pay by the class. And Bldg. 7 goes beyond yoga too, offering massage therapy, energy healing, reflexology, meditation and other fitness class options, including rowing and trx. It’s no wonder they’ve won in their category for three years running.

BEST YOGA OR PILATES STUDIO: BLDG7 YOGA

“Comparison is the thief of joy,” says Linda Zogas, owner of Bldg. 7 Yoga. A non-competitive environment among the yogis (those who practice yoga), allowing visitors to practice freely, is the type of environment Bldg. 7 Yoga strives to offer. The studio staff wants to get to know and to connect with visitors because the more they know them, the luckier they feel. Yoga can help connect people and calm the mind more than your average workout. Restorative, aerial, vinyasa (constant movement with heat), and roof-top yoga are the most popular classes offered. Bldg. 7 Yoga is passionate about giving back and reaching out to the community. “Thanks to the community. We wouldn’t be celebrating our first birthday without their continued support,” says Melanie Brill, studio manager. Celebrating their second win for Best Yoga Studio isn’t too shabby either. — Mikaileigh S. Baker

“Where are abs made? IN THE KITCHEN! Intrigued? Come to Linda’s Power Yoga to find out more. Linda’s Power Yoga, which has expanded to what’s now known as Bldg. 7 Yoga, teaches those practicing it that yoga is not about losing weight and looking good, but is about feeling better about yourself. This community atmosphere strives to build close relationships. “Who your teachers are makes all the difference,” says Linda. “We are real people. We don’t pretend to be someone we’re not. All walks of life are here teaching.” With easily relatable teachers at hand, the Linda’s Power Yoga experience is based on comfort and creating a sense of inner piece within yourself. With three distinct rooms – the hot room, the earth room, and the indo row room – your yoga experience will never be the same.”
