YogaWorks Back Bay, located at 364 Boylston St., Floor 2, is another top choice, with Yelpers giving it four stars out of 231 reviews.

Classes include vinyasa flow, hip-hop, barre work and core strengthening among the many options. Look for discounted community class opportunities.

Endurance Pilates and Yoga Studio in South End is another much-loved go-to, with five stars out of 28 Yelp reviews. Small class sizes allow for much individual attention from instructors.

Its Pilates, barre and power vinyasa yoga classes are designed to be especially challenging, and so may not be appropriate for those with new injuries or with chronic conditions. The yoga class, based on an ashtanga vinyasa form, is a flowing, physically demanding yoga practice.
