I have practiced Bikram Yoga on and off for several years. I started back up about a year ago when Jan began offering the pod classes. The small pod classes have given me more individual instruction and guidance which in turn helped me grow with the practice more than I thought it would. I feel great. I enjoy being in a smaller group and developing friendships with those in my pod. Jan is a great teacher and has been able to give me encouragement and motivation to continue practicing regularly. The studio is clean and very welcoming. She does a great job making sure it is safe for everyone during these challenging times. Micky 51
Personal wellness and self-care are imperative, especially during a pandemic. Metta Yoga Seacoast’s small group pod format allows me to feel safe and confident while building my emotional and physical strength. My practice has grown because of Jan’s expertise and guidance. Amanda 35
There are many benefits to the small pod configuration! Not only is there enough room to spread out and feel safe, the individual instruction and attention that Jan gives each yogi is phenomenal. I have improved both physically and psychologically at a much faster pace than I did in the larger class format. Jan is encouraging and genuinely cares about each of us and our progress. Since we are with the same people in every class, the class has a friendly, family feel. I have so much respect for Jan and her business model. I am grateful to her for keeping the studio open so I can continue to learn from her and continue to go to my “happy place”! Carrie 54
I totally enjoy the smaller pod classes offered at Metta Yoga. I don’t miss the packed 26+2 classes from before the pandemic and like practicing with the same committed other students in each class and also think that, with the smaller classes, the teacher is able to better focus on each student. Jan is a class act. Peter 62
Working in the smaller classes with Jan has helped my practice immensely. The individual focus and attention allowed for greater growth. Metta is a place for me to move, be still and heal. Jeremy 33
Jan Allen founded Bikram Yoga Seacoast - now Metta Yoga Seacoast - in 2008, bringing to the North Shore and the Seacoast a yoga studio deeply rooted in yoga tradition.
In the process, she also created a wonderful community of people.
The studio continues to specialize in the classic Bikram Yoga hot 26 posture beginner's 90 minute format, and also provides a 60 minute Commuter Express version that is offered early mornings.
In addition, the studio offers classes in three other forms of yoga: a Vinyasa Flow practice which involves synchronizing the breath with a continuous flow of postures, a Yoga Sculpt practice that focuses on strength and intensity, and a Yin Yoga class that focuses on seated and supine poses at a slower, more passive, pace.
Also, through its Special Events series, the studio provides the opportunity to experience additional yoga disciplines led by guest teachers expert in their fields.
In the spirit of metta - loving kindness - Jan's studio will inspire you to live not only healthily, but also vibrantly, compassionately and joyfully.
