I love Body Language and all the classes available. I mainly attend yoga, primarily to reduce stress, meditate, breathe, and of course, exercise.
But I simply cannot take the noise level. It’s comparable to a children’s playground. Before class, people are talking, laughing and carrying on so loudly, it takes all my concentration to keep calm. I cannot believe the level of disrespect and lack of awareness for those in class trying to focus.
In the actual yoga room is even worse. I noticed a sign requesting noble silence, but things have gotten worse, not better...the shouting, loud conversations, laughter and carrying on is beyond description.
The only instructor who I have ever witnessed attempting to quiet the room is Rhonda, and I thank her. Unfortunately, most of the other instructors are involved in being loud and carrying on as much as the students!
In the last week, I have heard detailed descriptions of a vacation, a blow-by-blow account of a brother’s drug addiction and arrests, complaining about teen children and many other distracting conversations while I settle onto my mat.
I appreciate that Body Language is a social place...but the noise level needs attention. I actually discussed this with a few classmates, so I know I’m not alone...
I like the classes though I wish the schedule switched up a bit.
I look for power Pilates, but it’s always full and I can’t get in. I work some days 13 hours and cannot always plan ahead of time.
My biggest complaint is that I think the studio is dirty/ dusty and I don’t like to ba upsgsinst the bar I bar class because of this. I know the floor is swept, but all the bells above are very dirty and it just doesn’t seem like attention goes into more than a quick sweep.
I am relatively new and otherwise think the classes are excellent!
The environment is very welcoming, everything feels very clean. The teachers are incredibly welcoming and helpful with modifications. This truly feels like a judgement free environment, it makes you feel like no matter how your form or performance is everyone is just happy you are trying to be healthy and treat your body right!
