Your Yoga Classes Options Revealed

Dec 30, 2007
Life moves too fast. One lesson we can all benefit from is the ancient Indian practice of yoga, which reminds us that every day is sacred and we are comprised of a connected series of energy channels that can be manipulated to regulate body processes, improve strength and facilitate mental clarity. Yoga classes are offered all across America -- and in fact, attract over 16.5 million participants!

Adding this relaxation technique to your weekly workout can give you the muscle toning and mental stamina you need to succeed in all other areas of your life. Continue reading to figure out where to find a class near you.

Yoga classes encompass a wide variety of styles for a broad audience. You needn't be a body contortionist or professional athlete to meet the demands of a yoga class. In fact, many beginners receive individualized guidance from trained and certified teachers.

It's all a matter of finding a yoga center and mentor you feel comfortable with. Consider that hatha relaxation technique (sometimes referred to as raja yoga) and Iyengar yoga both leave room for corrections and assistance. More advanced practitioners look to Ashtanga relaxation technique for a more strenuous workout, although these classes typically offer variations for beginners too.

YogaFinder website, the largest internet directory of its kind, can match you up with classes, events, retreats, products, jobs and teacher training opportunities. You can get the yoga center address, phone number, website, browse available styles and read a general description of what's offered.

This directory pulls results that others may not have and worldwide retreats are listed. The site is colorful, easy to navigate and very comprehensive!

Yoga website lists studios and classes near you by address, phone number, styles, levels, cost and certification information. You can also check out yoga vacations, read articles, browse the store and participate in forums here. It's a simple site but can give you all the basic statistics quickly and easily.

FindYoga website is another expansive, well-designed site with multiple search engines to find workshops, teachers, retreats, classes and training centers (within the US). If you're really busy, you can even search for classes by the days and times you have available!

Results are listed by school, suburb, day, time, style, level type and teacher. There are many resources for people looking to learn more about it, get their corporation involved in a program, or to find a mentoring program.

Yoga classes will whip your mind and body into shape by following ancient Indian practices developed over 5,000 years ago. No matter which stage of life you're in -- whether you're a hyperactive child, a rushed mid-aged professional, a pregnant woman, or an aching senior, there is a style of it to help. You may even want to get away to a yoga spa retreat or become an instructor yourself one day!
