Shakti Power Yoga
Music Row’s Shakti Power Yoga studio is dedicated to empowering students both on and off the mat, and it does so through its simultaneously challenging and uplifting heated power yoga classes. The heated space and power flow aims to link body movement to breath in order to tap into each student’s inner ‘Shakti,’ or creative energy. Challenge yourself to an all-levels Shakti Power Flow class, or try one of the studio’s many other dynamic heated and unheated classes, which include Yin Yoga (in which students hold deep stretches for long periods of time), Meditate + Flow (which incorporates meditation practice) and even a donation-based Karma Yoga class, from which 100% of the proceeds go to a local non-profit dedicated to making yoga more accessible throughout the greater Nashville area.
