Astanga Pro-Tips

Are you curious about Astanga classes but nervous just to jump in and give it a try?  We’ve got pro tips & helpful hints that may make it a little less intimidating class to try out! First, we recommend Astanga for experienced students.  While there are modifications offered for poses, just like a regular O2-style class, the pace of Astanga is a little quicker because there’s a lot to get to!  In Primary Series, students who are Intermediate-level and beyond will recognize many of the postures, but it’s helpful to have a...

Today, we’d like you to meet Sarah Rose, the third and final member of #TeamSarah on our teaching staff — and also the final one of our brand-new-five for us to introduce to you.  Herein referred to simply as Sarah, she found her way to O2 back in 2008 (same as Cambridge manager Sarah Wolf!) when she decided to check out the yoga studio down the street from her Somerville...

Getting to Know You: Becky Murphy

We are so excited to have added five brand new teachers to our regular schedule this spring, so we wanted to take a moment to introduce you to each of them. Today, we’re getting into Becky Murphy’s backstory.  Becky took her first yoga classes in college, though without fully connecting with what the practice had to offer.  When she moved to Somerville in 2013, her roommate suggested she check out the yoga studio a block from their apartment (“Spoiler  Alert: it was O2,” Becky said), but even then, her practice...

Getting to Know You: Alissa Kossar

We are so excited to have added five brand new teachers to our regular schedule this spring, so we wanted to take a moment to introduce you to each of them. Today, meet the bright and bubbly Alissa Kossar.  Alissa had been doing yoga for about five or six years without great regularity, before her sister brought her to her favorite yoga studio, O2.  “At first I was hesitant and secretly hoping I wouldn’t like it, as I sometimes like to be contrarian with things my sister likes, but I quickly found that was impossible,”...

March Teacher Feature: All of ‘Em – And All of You

Greetings.  It’s me — the Wolfstar.  I spent all of February making my way to practice with each of our teachers….and for fun, doing one Primary Series and one Second Series class.  Magically, that worked out to twenty-eight classes for a twenty-eight day month. Why did I set this crazy plan in motion for myself?  I guess you could say I’m a fan of what we do here at O2 — the practice resonates with me and the community at our studios is just outta this world.  I’m a fool in love and since February 2018...
