I found Discover Yoga a few years ago when I was looking for a gentle yoga studio that also allowed for discussion of spiritual growth in addition to asana practice. Alison and her studio have been there for me along my journey toward a deepening yoga practice. The studio has been an important catalyst in my life; It is very comforting to have found a community of yogis that are loving, accepting and kind.
I sometimes hear from people that they are intimidated to go to a yoga class at a yoga studio, sometimes because they feel inflexible or not educated in the way of yoga. No one need fear the gentle people found at Discover Yoga. This is one of the most welcoming environments I have had the pleasure to find myself in and I encourage anyone, regardless of current flexibility or knowledge, to come to the studio.
The style of yoga that is predominately practiced at the studio, viniyoga, is a very gentle yoga that allows for every kind of body to approach a yoga practice starting today, right where you are now. There are so many variations and modifications that can be made to make the pose more comfortable, and all of the instructors I have met through the studio are knowledgeable, patient, and good at communicating to individuals about their practice and helping to select postures or modifications that suit each individual.
Since beginning at Discover Yoga, I have found more flexibility, as well as stress-reduction, fuller breathing, better posture, more focus, greater body awareness, increased health and vitality, and a community of people who are holding a space of love for one another to feel safe and grow.
