Improve your flexibility, focus, strength, energy and peace with Yoga!
The foundational structure of our classes is primarily based on the alignment oriented Anusara Yoga method. Chiropractors and Physical Therapists love this therapeutic alignment for the health of the spine, bones, muscles and joints. We also weave themes from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras through the classes so that each student experiences a journey beyond the body that connects with the heart of Life.
Sri Ekan was certified in Anusara Yoga in 2001 and Nirgunavathi was licensed as an Anusara teacher in 2007 and both have decades of training in yoga philosophy, yoga history, biomechanics, anatomy, detailed postural alignment, adjusting, therapeutics and the art of teaching yoga.
Barry Sowder and Melissa Williams are long term students of Yoga and Lake Center Yoga and have a deep understanding of how to do yoga safely and make it fun for beginning to advanced students.

This class is ideal for people who have been practicing yoga or feel they have completed Yoga 101 and would like to continue a slightly more advanced yoga class. This class can accommodate brand new people but the Yoga 101 or Slow and Glow classes are better for people new to yoga.
In On-going Beginning Yoga we begin to weave “the yoga of the mind”, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, into the classes along with excellent alignment instruction in the yoga poses. This class is very holistic and brings not only strength and openness to the body but also the wisdom of Yoga to everyday life. Registered students receive a Yoga Sutra Review and Home Practice at the end of each week.
If you are new to yoga and cannot attend the Yoga 101 or Slow and Glow classes, please contact us at 407-831-2229 and we can discuss coming to this class.Click here to register and pay for On-going Beginning Yoga
Yin Yoga is similar to restorative poses in that they are generally held for anywhere from 2- 10 minutes. However Yin poses are usually more challenging than restorative ones. Yin poses are passive compared to the active Yang poses of most hatha yoga and flowing styles such as vinyasa. Yin is the other side, the complementary opposite of the yoga world.
Yin Yoga is a highly-recommended complement to Yang poses. Many yoga practitioners are adding Yin Yoga to their routine to balance out their body, mind and spirit.

Besides the profound effects of relaxing the mind, you will leave with a clearer perception of life and a heightened sense of awareness and inner bliss. This will help deepen your asana yoga practice and inspire you to meditate more at home. The Eight Limbs of Yoga remind us that yoga is much more than just the Third Limb: Asana. Yoga is whole system of transformation and Self-Realization.
