“I’ve benefitted from holding yoga postures longer because it has helped me with three things: Created better body awareness, increased my stability and has helped my flexibility. I would recommend the Thursday night class to everyone, not just beginners. Everyone, no matter their fitness level, beginner or more advanced, can benefit from increased body awareness, better stability and flexibility.”

– Dr. Julie Vance, Chiropractor

“For me, it is my neck and shoulders that give me discomfort. I have benefited immediately from holding postures longer because the relief when i release is incredibly more noticeable and lasts a lot longer. Ricky guides us through postures that release tension and increase flexibility in areas that you may not have even known you needed it. And the relief in problem areas is very noticeable. I always sleep better after yoga!”

– Lynn Beyer, Workforce Program Manager, NFPA

“For me, yoga, thai massage, and meditation offer a release from the tensions of everyday life. I experience a peace of mind and sense of calm when engaged in such activities. At first I was looking for physical results, but as I continue to practice these things, I know that they have become emotional  and psychological tools as well. While I am not disciplined enough to do them as regularly as I could, I know that they are always tools that I can turn to in order to bring health and happiness into my life.”

 -Lisa Meyer, Full-time Teacher and Multiple Sclerosis Survivor
