Congratulations, You've Found Iyengar Yoga Classes in Downtown Decatur, GA
People tell me it can be tough to find Iyengar yoga classes in Atlanta. Well that's partly because the process of certification takes many years for Iyengar teachers, so there aren't as many of us as there are in styles with much shorter training periods for teachers. Current and prospective yoga students who want to learn to practice yoga safely and independently may benefit from the extra years of experience and training that Iyengar teachers have. Hopefully this website will add to what you learn in classes because yoga is an art and science that needs to be experienced firsthand to know the benefits.
Thank you for your continued support and interest in taking yoga classes with me at Shambhala, Emory, Wesley Woods Health Center, and other locations -- since 2007 when I began teaching yoga. I'm grateful to you all for showing up week after week and year after year to stretch your limits and stay on the fascinating path of Hatha yoga.
Befriending the body by learning to move mindfully improves everything you do from brushing your teeth to picking up heavy stuff. You feel these effects in classes and after class, but are you practicing on your own? Focused and continued practice of the basic actions learned in classes -at home, at your workplace, in the car, or while walking, talking, running, or playing sports - makes life a little easier because you learn to refine, redefine and enliven yourself in any and every circumstance. What could be more useful than that? Practice the actions you learn in classes. Do it every day, even if it's just for a few minutes at first.
Whether you're a runner, rocket-scientist, student, soccer mom, or desk-dweller you can become more aware of your body, breath, and chattering mind to have a unique experience of connection between mind and body in each class. What you'll learn is tangible, palpable and portable. Classes and yoga-actions build one upon another as you continue learning and evolving into a more mindful and relaxed human being. Now what are you waiting for?
