I realized I'd stumbled upon something great the very first time a took a yoga class. With a mind that never shut up, I didn't even know that not thinking was an option. As I lay on my mat at the end of that first class, I became aware of myself not thinking. The chatter had ceased. It felt amazing.
Over the past 20 years, yoga has provided me with a safe place to observe my habitual thoughts and actions. The fiery classes have cheered me up when I've been down and the calming classes have grounded me when I've been overstimulated. Having a tool that can bring me back to my center has been priceless. I believe that yoga can benefit everyone regardless of age, size or belief system. It can definitely increase your strength and flexibility, but more than that, it can reveal a place within you that is calm and steady.
I am entering my 9th year of running this studio. I have greatly enjoyed getting to know the people of Conway and watching this community grow. If you decide to give us a try, you will find warm people of various ages, sizes, and belief systems. You will not be walking into a space where everyone has the perfect outfit, body and pose. I take a lot of pride in the fact that this is a community of everyday people who just want to feel better.
I do not have a guru nor do I aspire to be one. I aspire to provide you with an opportunity to learn about what you believe, not about what I believe. If you are looking to hear a bunch of dogma, you will not find it here. I believe that we are all capable of finding our own way. Everything you need is already within you. To reveal it, you just have to Go Inside.
