Chicago Fitness Studio Review: Yoga Six South Loop

Yoga Six South Loop is one of my favorite yoga studios that I’ve discovered through ClassPass.

In a nutshell: Yoga, obviously. My favorite classes are Deep Stretch (similar to yin or restorative) and Power Yoga, which is “a heated full-body blast” (that is typically like an aggressive flow-style class that is not as hot as Bikram). They also offer Flow, Vinyasa and Hot Yoga, as well as Bootcamp classes and workshops.

Level: All levels welcome.

Instructors: Everyone has been very friendly and offers corrections to postures when necessary.

Workout space: I love Yoga Six’s studios. The floors are soft and marked with little “parking spots” for your mat. The studios have mirrors on one side, and south-facing windows on the other. Because the studio faces Roosevelt Road to the south, and there is open space across the street, the view is actually pretty nice. You can see the river from the “sunset” (west) studio. There is also a “sunrise” studio. Each studio is stocked with blocks, straps, bolsters and blankets. Bring your own mat, although they might have some available.

The rest of the space: Spacious, clean locker rooms with private bathrooms, showers, and a stocked sink space. Filter water available. The reception area sells cute yoga apparel and other gear, and has space for you to hang your coat and store your shoes. Free validated indoor parking is available in the underground garage at the Roosevelt Collection. Just take the blue elevators up to 2 and bring your parking ticket.

Overall: I love coming to class here. I haven’t checked out Yoga Six’s other locations since they aren’t convenient for me.

Rundown:
Workouts: Mostly Yoga and some Bootcamp
Showers: yes, and some amenities provided although I have not showered here
Lockers and/or cubbies: Lockers, bring your own lock
Towels: bring your own for the workout and showers
Water: drinking fountain with spout for water bottles
Food: I believe they sell some goodies in the reception area

Have you been to Yoga Six? Do you take yin/restorative/deep stretch yoga?
