The allure of Pali Yoga stems from the Eureka studio's namesake, Rupali Brown, who was born and raised in Mumbai, India. After spending a few years working in an animation studio, work that she found "stimulating mentally" but left her "feeling incomplete and physically unhealthy," Brown found yoga. In time, she met Ben Brown, the "love of her life," in a yoga ashram in India. Now raising two young kids, the couple runs Pali Yoga, where they offer a variety of classes with the philosophy that "each class is a one-of-a-kind experience and is informed by the conviction that all bodies are unique and there is no one way a pose should be practiced."
The studio offers about a dozen classes a week, from Vinyasa flow to Hatha, including a half-hour lunchtime class built to fit busy work schedules. Classes run $10 apiece for drop-ins and $90 for a 10-class pass. There are also packages — $30 for three weeks of unlimited classes for new students or an unlimited monthly pass for $65 — for those looking for more studio time. They're flexible.
