Glow Yoga: Allston’s new multi-tier community center Pop Allston has a 60-minute asana practice with YogaHub that encourages you to give the right side of your brain a work out as well. Utilize the complimentary neon body paints and glow sticks before stepping in the blacklight room for a trippy but tranquilizing experience for the mind and body.

Hip Hop Yoga: Back Bay’s ever-popular warm room hip-hop classes are less about pose and breath perfection, and more about finding flow. The classes are offered several times each week, and are occasionally pegged as a battle between artists — think Beyonce versus Jay-Z — leaving you to figure out an entirely different brand of balance.
