A favorite of CityandDale.com writer Tracey Hill, Moksha Yoga Sherwood Park is a modern, attractive yoga studio that offers classes dedicated to bending and stretching your body into a series of poses as led by an instructor. The poses are designed to strengthen and tone, while also detoxifying the body. Moksha is hot yoga and a workout with your professional instructor will create more sweat than you thought possible. Be sure to bring along towels and ample cold water…you will need it!
