Yoga at Exhale Pittsburgh


Even as the snow’s flying, you can get in a new workout at one of the new, innovative gyms in the area. A few options: Pittsburgh Fit in Point Breeze, a community-based gym with a “just do it” approach. There’s also the CrossFit-turned-warehouse-workout-spot Arsenal Strength in Upper Lawrenceville, and 3Minute Fitness, a functional interval training studio on the South Side.


Yoga studios are now ubiquitous around the ‘Burgh, and we’re all breathing easier as a result. Stop in the one nearest your neighborhood, or say “Namaste” to one of these: Schoolhouse Yoga (Squirrel Hill, East Liberty and the North Hills) teaches traditional ashtanga yoga, Yin Yoga, prenatal yoga and much more. Amazing Yoga (Wexford, Shadyside and South Side) leads power flow classes and has the Amazing Café (South Side location only), where you can grab GMO-free fare, smoothies and juices after a sweat session. If your furnace goes out (or even if it doesn’t), get heated up to the max at Bikram Yoga Pittsburgh, the city’s original hot yoga studio, in Lawrenceville. Yoga Flow (various locations around Pittsburgh) also offers heated vinyasa flow classes.
