CorePower Yoga

The Right Fit

Accessibility is the name of the game at Denver-based CorePower Yoga, which offers a wide range of classes designed for beginners, plus plenty of advanced classes for yogis to grow into. Yoga purists who prefer to hear their poses spoken in Sanskrit might be turned off by the peppy sound tracks, bicycle-style situps and free weights that come into play in CorePower classes. But for the skeptical or uninitiated, this is a great place to try getting your namaste on.
