Don't underestimate cleanliness – InnerStrength Yoga is the best! So clean and fresh smelling! I never realized how important the environment in which you practice truly is! I just returned from another studio . . . the yoga class was alright . . . no complaints about the instructor . . . . BUT the studio REEKED of Smelly Feet!!!!! It was horrible! How stupid of that studio to have wall to wall carpet througout the studio - not only in the lobby, but also in the studio where we practiced!
Inner Strength not only has the best instructors, the best studio, the best ambiance, but also the CLEANEST and most sweet smelling of all the studios I've been to.
Best Yoga in Metrowest – When I first moved to Boston I was trying all different yoga studios to find one that fit my needs. I lived in Boston at the time, but was trying studios all over the area. The first time I took a class at Inner Strength with Roman I knew this studio was different. The class not only challenged me physically, but mentally as well. I left feeling like I must come back again! The teachers here are top notch and each bring something different to their classes. The studio space is spacious, and I love having the ease of free parking! I recommend Inner Strength to all of my friends!
Finally, I found the BEST.... – The best Yoga, hands down throughout Boston and surrounding areas. I have been to many studios and have never encountered somewhere like Inner Strength. Roman, his teachers and trainers are all experienced, motivating and well versed about the practice of Yoga and the overall health of your body. Throughout the hour and half class I attend three times a week Roman targets every muscle in the body to make it a complete workout as well as relaxing and rejuvenating. I have seen a positive change in my mood, alertness and overall sense of well being since finding Inner Strength. Roman and teachers make each class enjoyable while offering a calming sense before or after your busy day. The schedules are very convenient with class times available through out the day, two studios and other services offered like massage, acupuncture, herbal medicine and personal training. I would highly recommend Inner Strength, whether experienced or a beginner, they have it all.
Depends on the teacher – I've been going to Inner Strength for about a year now, mostly because it's very convenient for me. Many of the teachers are wonderful but others are more style less substance. I've often felt like I'm in some wierd version of boot camp yoga. And I agree with the comments regarding egos - I've occasionally referred to the owner as the Used Car Salesman of Yoga.
It all depends what you want out of your yoga practice. If you want rock-hard abs and a bikini body, then most of the teachers here will be perfect for you. If you're looking to cultivate a meaningful practice on and off the mat that allows you to open to the grace of the universe, be selective about the classes you attend at IS.
A real yoga experience – Hands down, Roman and the instructors at Inner Strength guide students through the best Yoga class to be had in Boston. It's been several years since I attempted a posture, however, I attended my first class on Monday and have been back 4 out of the past 5 days this week. Roman obviously has been influenced by various Hatha styles, Ashtanga, Iyengar, etc. and brings a high degree of pragmatic, focused intensity and positive energy to the class room. Exertion levels are high, but the rewards are great and benefits are immediately apparent. I've had back pain for months and after three days of class, it's gone. I've practiced Yoga at various schools and ashrams, including an intensive teacher's training course. This is the real thing and will be a refreshing break from "gym" Yoga for those just getting into a practice. It is apparent to me that Roman and others at Inner Strength practice a yoga life-style and teach in a compassionate and caring manner, consequently, I have not felt burdened by anyone's ego there to date. If you don't finish your first class wanting to return the very next day, I'll be surprised.
A new studio in a great location! – I was so excited to find out that Inner Strength has opened a second location! I had been to the Watertown location a few times and loved the classes but it was a bit of a hike for me since I work downtown. I found out a couple of weeks ago that they had acquired a studio in West Roxbury which is much more convenient for me. I tried a class out last week and it was wonderful. Same great atmosphere, beautiful space, and the instructor, Lauren, was exceptional. I left pleasantly fatigued and relaxed at the same time. I cannot say enough about this great studio and would definitely encourage anyone to try it out.
Editorial Review – Acclaimed yoga studio offers classes in various styles, as well as massage and personal training services.
Won't go back – I think the atmosphere of the studio is wonderful, but that is about it. To own a yoga studio one should practice a yoga lifestyle. I don't think this is true of the owner. This studio has one too many egos for me to want to go there again.
Heaven on Earth! – This is a truly wonderful place! The classes are challenging, fun and will completely detoxify you. I have been practicing at Inner Strength for close to 2 years now and I love each and every class. The instructors are friendly, knowledgeable and have so much to offer. There are 2 studios available - both are beautiful - so classes are taught pretty much all day long. The cat is great, too. She is warm and friendly (much like the people at the studio) and her hair is hypo-allergenic. She's just another reason to come to the studio! Try it and you'll fall in love!
Inner Strength - Worthy of Best in Boston – The staff, and the studio itself, create a haven where optimum health, strength and serenity are possible. A warm and welcoming vibe is palpable. Truly accomodating every physical need, Inner Strength provides knowledgeable and professional staff, both personal training and excellent class variety, also frequent workshops that educate all in working towards mutual goals. And 'the cat' is a sweetheart, and to me, her presence, though often not even evident, is very calming; obviously it depends on one's feeling towards cats, but she is rarely visible.
