Good evening yoga classes?

people doing yoga@sozepiggytails asks via the Twitter:

Say, can I get a recommendation for best yoga? Live in Albany, work in Schdy, has to be after 5pm. Gracias!

A similar question came up about a year ago, but things change.

Got a suggestion? Please share!

Heartspace in Albany has a great selection of evening classes (6:30 and 7pm)! I've been to a bunch of different ones, they're all great. And some are community classes, which are by donation. I love the studio. Its on Madison Avenue next to Washington Park.

There are great sessions at Key 2 Joy in Shaker Pine Plaza (in Colonie, near Niskayuna); Shannon and Thomas are amazing practitioners! Check 'em out: http://www.key2joy.net/

Heartspace Holistic. I reviewed it on yelp.com
It is the best yoga studio in the area and the least expensive.

Thank you very much for the recommendations thus far! Flexibility and strength are my targets, flexible as to the actual flavor. If the Ruck did yoga that would be ideal. ;)

Basically, I'm looking at yoga because my knee cannot currently handle my old cycling routine, but I am going stircrazy while I work with my sports doc.

Orenda Yoga, 609 Union Street in Schenectady. Brand new, neat little place. http://www.orendayoga.org/home.

They also have a studio in Guilderland.

It looks like Shanti Yoga in Troy has mostly evening classes. I haven't tried it out, but I do know that it's only a couple blocks from the Ruck. http://www.shantiyoga.ws/

Another recommendation for Heartspace. Wonderful studio. I know people often don't believe that yoga can be athletic, but the more vigorous classes will still offer the athletic nature you're looking for while allowing your knee to heal.

Heartspace is full of great teachers and each one offers something different.

I second Orenda Yoga in Schenectady. Great beginner and mixed level classes and they have a wonderful yoga atmosphere. Check out their classes at www.orendayoga.org/classes.

Thursday evenings at Soluna in Niskayuna with Thomas at 5:30pm.
Balltown Road....
