“Ain't no shame in the block!” shouts yoga instructor Henry McMillan at Hollywood Power Yoga to practitioners making modifications. Serene as students may feel in Downward Dog, McMillan keeps the vibe upbeat. “It's a yoga party,” he says. “It's important that people have fun and feel good.” What McMillan achieves is an atmosphere that's somehow tranquil and peppy at the same time. In a word: namaste! There are no bogus sounds of the rainforest pumping through the speakers. Instead, artists like Robyn, Empire of the Sun and M83 are the soundtrack here. But lighthearted as the energy may be, the workout is serious. Like any good party, the movement is nonstop, and in no time, the air is thick with sweat. But if you need a break, McMillan says, just kick it in Child's Pose. Party on, yogis. 1310 N. Wilton Place, Hlywd. (323) 871-4088, hollywoodpoweryoga.com. —Ali Trachta
