The Orange Room is a good yoga spot for beginners. The owners and expat yogis, Kathleen, Anita and Pat, shy away from an explicit name for their brand of yoga, but it's basically a mix of Hatha, Anasara and Iyengar. The focus lies in getting the postures right and feeling secure in class, and not to double over in acrobatic poses. As classes are scheduled before noon, Hongqiao's housewives have enough time to get their kids to school, squeeze in a yoga class and still meet up with working spouses for lunch. One yoga and one pilates class each is offered for free to first-timers. After that, drop in price is 150rmb a class.
