Atlanta is lucky to have many great yoga studios, so it takes a lot for a new one to stand out. CorePower Yoga offers the typical hot-room vinyasa flow classes, with highly skilled teachers—Samson is particularly good—leading you through a fast-paced set of warrior poses and chaturangas. (And there’s the usual array of high-priced tank tops and sticky mats for sale in the lobby.) But what makes this place unique is the CorePower Yoga Sculpt class, where students mix traditional yoga poses with free weights—think squats, lunges, and bicep curls integrated with downward dogs and planks—for a total-body workout.
