We’ve all heard it a million times this semester: I’m ready for Spring. We all smile and shake our heads in agreement. Yeah, that’d be nice. With this never-ending winter hanging over our heads, we can’t help but wonder – when will it stop?
When will the quad be green again? When will the daffodils be blooming outside of Gasson? How much longer will the walkway next to Conte be a snow-blown wind tunnel? Remember when you could sit out on a bench in O’Neill Plaza and read for your Irish Lit class? Yeah, me neither.
I took it upon myself a few weeks ago to find some way to make my life have the slightest bit of warmth in it. In this freezing tundra of a city, I thought there had to be some place that I could escape to that would provide me with the warmth that my body was craving. And no, I do not mean a tanning salon, although I did consider it at points just to feel the artificial sunrays on my skin. What I discovered was the incredible warmth of hot power yoga just down the B-line.
A brand new yoga studio located just off the Packards Corner T-Stop is a hidden gem for most BC students. Check out the Newton studio for those BC students that live on Newton. Corepower Yoga is a gorgeous studio that is worth the short distance away from campus for a workout. The studio is home to brand new amenities, like a beautifully designed and sparkling clean locker room that will have you never wanting to return to the Plex, ever.
The studio offers a variety of classes ranging in skill level from beginner yoga to more advanced strength training classes. A few of the unique classes offered include Sculpt, which is, “heated power yoga with weights” and Hot Power Fusion, which encompasses, “meditative and detoxifying qualities of Hot Yoga with the intensity of Power Yoga.” Definitely check out the full schedule and description of all the classes offered at Corepower Yoga!
Most importantly, the overall feel of the studio is tranquil and welcoming. The community at Corepower supports the overall well being of each and every yogi that enters the doors.

The instructors are extremely welcoming and make each and every student feel appreciated and at home in the studio. They are always looking for feedback about their classes and are open to helping their students in any way they can.
Plus, for a little added incentive – you get your first week of yoga for free!
So head down the B-line for your first hot yoga class of the spring! It’s a great workout and the climate-controlled studio will have you drenched in sweat by the time you leave.
