What classes do you teach?
Yoga classes at The Health Advantage Yoga Center are based on the Anusara® style taught by John Friend and the Iyengar style developed by B.K.S Iyengar. Courses are heart-oriented and spiritually inspiring with a focus on each person’s optimal alignment in the poses. Classes are taught progressively and instructors encourage students to listen to their bodies and move at their own pace. Deep relaxation is taught in each class after completion of the postures. Classes include Gentle Yoga, Yoga 1 through Yoga 4, Vinyasa, Yin, Prenatal, and classes for kids and teens. Our newest classes are Movement, Breath & Meditation, and Lunchtime Yoga.
What effect has yoga had on your students?
Our students have reported that yoga has reduced their stress, helped them sleep, improved their moods, made them more aware of their bodies, increased their flexibility and strength, and reduced aches and pains.
