Redmond >Discover Yoga
Loved it! I have been looking for a gentle yoga class forever. The 9:30 am class with Alison (owner) is just what the dr. ordered. The class sits in a circle and checks in with a one word answer to what do you want to work on today. Alison addresses each person by their first name around the circle. This bonds the class and helps people connect vs. just coming and going to a class. The class also does a check out, going around the room, addressed by first name, and says in a word how they feel. It again, connects the class - which is spiritually healing. The warmth of the room is just right. Not to hot - not too cold - just right. What I really like, is that everyone has access to a blanket they can use for their knees, as a pillow, or to put over them during the end meditation. Yeah! I need all three reasons! We used tennis balls for foot massage, straps for stretching, blocks and pillows were available AND lavendar eye bags - to again make the end meditation even more delightful. The yoga moves were just right. Slow and sure - I'm a beginner, and always got frustrated in the other classes that were "all levels" as I couldn't keep up, and didn't like feeling like an idiot (LOL). At this class, I fit right in and can grow into more advance yoga later - or maybe just stay in this wonderful class forever! Great location, right downtown Redmond by Soul Food books and the Samammish River Trail. Can relax in the book shop/coffee shop or go for a walk after my yoga. They offer a two week pass for only $30 - great way to try it out! Namaste :)
Yoga Resource on the East side, Redmond yoga classes for every body. I am very impressed to find a yoga class geared to larger bodies. What a good idea. A good fitness resource for plus sized people.
