I discovered Yoga early on my path of personal development. At the time I was super stressed and preoccupied with lots of heavy mental and emotional baggage. After my very first Yoga class with instructor Julie Wright, I was sooooo much more calm, peaceful and relaxed. I was sold! I have been practicing Yoga ever since.

The benefits of Yoga are well documented and extend way beyond the physical. Yoga is a holistic practice encompassing body, mind and spirit. 

This fact may not be completely obvious, however, if your first encounter with the discipline is at your local gym, where the typical Yoga class may be reduced to a strictly athletic exercise. True Yoga is so much more. And less. Yoga is not competitive. Nor, contrary to common belief, does it require great flexibility. Flexibility is something that develops over time. A good Yoga instructor can safely teach Yoga to any student, even if she is pregnant or arthritic. Just be sure you pick a qualified instructor and exercise common sense. If it hurts, don't do it!

I feel blessed to be associated with Anahata Yoga and Healing Arts in Riverside, CA. (No, I'm not getting paid to say these things, although I do help out at the studio and conduct my life coaching business and related activities on the premises. Also, I recently completed their comprehensive 365 hour yoga teacher training program and am now teaching yoga here and elsewhere. See my teaching schedule to the right.) Anahata Yoga is one of those rare Yoga studios which honors the full spirit of the Yoga discipline - that is, Yoga with a heart, incorporating all eight limbs of Yoga, not just the physical asanas (postures).

Also, Anahata Yoga was the first Yoga school to be certified by Yoga Next to train aspiring Yoga teachers. Yoga Next was founded in 2012 to address the minimal and inconsistent certification standards among Yoga teacher training programs.

If you reside in the Riverside area, I invite you to check out the Anahata Yoga studio. I feel honored to be associated with them.
