Best Fit By Description

Here’s another way to look at it: which of these three descriptions best fits you? (Keep reading to the end of this page to see all three¬†descriptions)

1. For me, the workout is the thing.

  • Body and mind development are key to me but I like some spirituality too.
  • I love a challenge and 105 degree heat sounds great to me. Or at least I’m willing to try it to see if I like it.
  • I tend to be systematic so doing a 26 pose flowing system until the class is done would definitely have its benefits.
  • I like knowing that the heat of the room helps to stimulate healing processes and that if I have any injuries I will be given special instructions to help me with them.
  • Having highly-trained, experienced teachers is also important.

If that description sounds the most like you: Try Bikram Yoga Longwood.

It is a 9-minute drive from central Altamonte Springs:

2. I like a wide range of choices in my yoga classes — hot, warm, challenging to easy, mainly flow-type yoga.

  • Aerial yoga sounds intriguing as well.
  • I feel comfortable in bigger classes where I can just blend into the class and not be noticed if I wish.
  • But there are a few smaller to medium sized classes as well where I can get more individual attention.
  • I like the idea of having an enthusiastic teacher fresh from the Yoga University held there — as several of them are.
  • But I can also choose from quite experienced teachers if I wish.
  • And all at a discount rate.

It is a 6 minute drive from central Altamonte Springs:

3. I prefer having the whole body, mind, spirit experience with my yoga.

  • I like a little flowing in my yoga to warm up but feel I will gain more by learning individual poses more deeply — for 3 – 5 good breaths apiece.
  • I feel that I have missed learning the proper way to do poses so that I don’t hurt myself and can go deeper into the poses safely.
  • I like the idea that if I have an injury that with proper instruction I can actual heal it over time doing yoga.
  • I prefer yoga around normal room temperature — about 75 degrees.
  • And I’m curious about the spiritual aspects of yoga — can they really help me in my life?
  • Smaller to medium size classes appeal to me so that I can have more individual instruction as needed.
  • I also prefer very skillful, accomplished teachers who can help guide me into a deeper yoga experience.

If that description sounds the most like you: Try Lake Center Yoga.

It is a 7 minute drive from central Altamonte Springs:
