I took their class for people with back injuries after suffering from a severe sciatica inflammation.

The class was excellent. There were two assistants as well as an instructor, so you really got the attention you needed when something wasn't going well.

I'd taken many yoga classes over the years, but this one was the first time that I felt I got the feed-back necessary to continue to practice on my own. Plus they gave hand-outs that allowed a home practice. There were diagrams and explanations that made it so you could remember what to do and even more importantly, how to do it.

They gave alternate positions when a particular pose made something else uncomfortable. It really tailored the class to each of our needs.

My only complaint was that the room was a little small for the class size - we were really packed in there.

They really do have yoga for real people there.

I went on a sample (aka Free) day and will be back again. It allows people new to yoga or the business to check it out. I took a class that's recommeneded for all body types. It focus on knowing your own limits and slowly exp anding them.This was especially good for me as they 1st time I tried yoga I ended up wearing BenGay for 3 days. Each movement can be customized to whatever level you're at. At the end of the session, I felt wonderful and energized. I was also to enjoy the rest of day with a great feeling of peace.

If you're interested, you can take training to become a yoga teacher. There was also some workshop information (I think on meditation). Lots of other types of classes like for children and pregaunt women.

This one room yoga studio located on Greenwood is worth checking out. Limited parking is available in a garage in the back. Classes vary by difficulty level and time. Drop in classes are 15$, but many series classes are offered as well. Some speciality classes include yoga for hips, relaxation, and pregnancy. Instructors seem a step above some others and are able to clearly explain postures and yoga theories. Complimentary tea is offered in the lobby. Props and mats are available free of charge.

I have taken a class and several drop-ins at Whole Life Yoga. They're great! The studio is calm and serene and the people are fun and knowledgeable. I like how adaptable the instructors are for dealing with injuries. I have a wrist injury and a back injury. They were able to suggest great alternate poses and they even have a class just for back health!

Okay, actually the class I love is called "Yoga for Real People," and it's for all body types. The owner suffered a back injury before turning to yoga, and has a great deal of sympathy for the idea that some students simply can't bend, stand, kneel or sit in certain ways. She firmly believes in teaching a highly customizable style and reminding students that the point of her classes isn't competitiveness.

There are free "sample" days where newcomers can attend a session to see what it's like. There are lots of workshops, and Whole Life offers training to potential yoga instructors. Tracy loans out yoga magazines, applauds progress and feels that Whole Life has developed a family relationship with its clients.

An excellent beginning to those who have been shy of yoga because they don't feel that they fit the ideal.
