Class Overview

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.

Class Descriptions — Choose the Right Class for You!

Come and expand the potential of your body, mind and spirit in these wonderful classes at Lake Center Yoga. The only things necessary for class are comfortable workout type clothes, an open mind, a good attitude and a willingness to enjoy where you are in the poses according to your capacity in each moment.

This class is for you if you are new to yoga, getting back into yoga, recovering from an injury, or looking to clear out “normal” aches and pains.  During class a slower pace is used so the teacher can give more special attention and support. (If you fit this description but your schedule doesn’t match ours, call us at 407-831-2229 for an appropriate class that fits your schedule.)

In this class proper alignment is instructed in the poses along with deeper inner awareness than normal exercise.  This class is very holistic and brings not only strength and openness to the body but also the awareness of connection to your own inner spirit.  This teaches you how to be more centered in your true nature, which brings you to higher levels of happiness.

This class is for everyone whether you are new to yoga, getting back into yoga, have an injury, or chronic aches and pains.  In 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 the Yoga Sutras to bring back into life.  Registered students receive a Yoga Sutra Review and Home Practice at the end of each week.

 The poses in these classes will be more advanced than in the Yoga 101 or Beginning Yoga and will continue to build your strength, stamina and knowledge.  Each week a new Patanjali Yoga Sutra is woven into the classes along with excellent alignment instruction in the poses.  Every class offers an expansive and varied sequence of poses which will give you different physical and psychological benefits.  Registered students receive a Yoga Sutra Review and Home Practice at the end of each week.  If you have yoga experience you may drop in to these classes anytime.

This is a perfect class to decompress from the week by relieving stress and restoring your self. This class goes into the deeper stress releasing aspects of yoga practices utilizing  mantras and pranayama (breathing practices) and a light floor asana practice which all recalibrate the nervous system and energy pathways in preparation for meditation.

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.

The inner peace, tranquility and bliss you leave with is topped off with a vegan sweet treat for the road.  Come and get younger and shine brighter as you clear stress from your body and mind by immersing yourself in the healing and powerful inner energy~
