I recently tried my first prenatal class at Joy Yoga and had a wonderful time. Simone was a great instructor, gently guiding us through the positions and giving tips and addressing any concerns or problems that the expectant mothers were having. As a beginner, I found the studio and the class very welcoming and encouraging.
What is an animal spirit guide?
Animal spirit guides, once we find them, help us navigate the challenges and contradictions of life. Animal spirit guides haven’t caught up to things like yoga and meditation as far as mainstream practice goes, so we’re here to give you first steps toward connecting to this part of your existence.
In shamanistic traditions, “power animals” act as an energy that can be tapped into for guidance and strength. Similarly, in some Native American cultures, totems refer to one or more animal spirits that guide individual or all members of a family or tribe throughout their lives. A totem pole features representations of all of the animals associated with a specific group.
I really love the studio. There is such a nice variety of classes to choose from- I can almost always find a class that fits into my busy schedule. The changing rooms and bathrooms are very clean and welcoming. Larry and Michael are two of my favorite instructors - they know how to challenge and push you in all the right ways. An excellent work out for both body and mind.
I just celebrated my one year anniversary with Joy Yoga Center and am looking forward to continuing my practice with them! My favorite instructors are Heather, Larry, and Natalie. The flow and power flow classes are fantastic! They have really pushed my practice to a new level! And Leslie, the manager, is so sweet and awesome! I recommend this studio to everyone.
Be confident. Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we aren’t. Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses, and it is only when you accept everything you are - and aren’t - that you will truly succeed.
