Leave Your Ego at the Door, Join the Artemis Yoga Community

At Artemis Yoga, you will find Vinyasa and Iyengar style classes. Both disciplines focus on the principles of alignment, but also use movement and breathing techniques to energize the body. In Vinyasa yoga for example, sun salutations and flows are dominant while in Iyengar, sequencing and precise posture are critical. There are four types of classes at Artemis: basic, level 1, level 2, and restorative. Each class in turn can be tailored to fit your preferred pace and level of difficulty.

The airy and vibrant space hosts two practice studios and offers more than 40 classes, seven days per week led by over 20 part-time instructors and staff. There are classes for adults, kids, teens, and seniors.

"The east end of Watertown is a great neighborhood with so much energy," owner Liz Padula said. "The opportunity to make a difference for so many students is very rewarding and it is a wonderful experience to provide a community space for [them] to be able to leave distractions at the door and be 'present' on and off their mat."

Both Vinyasa and Iyengar classes provide self-paced and detailed alignment-based instruction coupled with the use of props such as blocks or blankets to help you achieve the correct postures. Artemis Yoga offers a very conducive learning environment for those who have just dipped their toes in yoga practice but also for experience yogis. Their newcomer pass offers 30 days of unlimited lessons for only $29, a great incentive to try them out.

Many of the instructors at Artemis are former college varsity athletes hailing from soccer, basketball, and track. A lot of the students at the studio rely on yoga as a complement to their other fitness passions such as triathlons, road racing, trail running, and rowing among others.

"We hope you find that all [of] our classes are a safe place to build strength of body and calmness of mind," Padula said. "Today's professional world has stretched working hours into the evening and weekends, and more stresses arise when one seeks to balance a high-performance work environment, family, and friends with a commitment to physical fitness."

In addition to improving flexibility, balance, and core strength, yoga helps students improve focus and mindfulness. Padula's ultimate goal is to improve both physical and mental agility so that students feel refreshed, steady, and ready to face the day. Yoga can help those who value work-life balance and want to gain the benefits of cross-training while honing their mindfulness practice. As with any new endeavor, it is important to choose a level or style of yoga that is right for you.

Artemis Yoga has earned a reputation as an inviting, friendly, and tranquil training community where students are encouraged to learn, relax, and challenge themselves at their own pace.
