Studio 2 for Yoga and Wellness
Thank you for voting us Reader's Choice for Best Yoga Instruction!
Our Vision is to create a space for Yoga and Wellness. Each Instructor has their own unique way of teaching both yoga asana and spiritual practices. We don't just get you to stretch, we get you to experience a profound healing of mind and body through theme.
On rare occasions we are asked if we do 'hot' yoga. My answer is this: Yoga asana is designed to naturally heat your body from the inside out. It creates supple musculature so that the stretch is true and not influenced by anything other than your own body heat that is generated during properly taught and sequenced yoga routines. We design sequences to build internal heat in the body that allows for natural flushing of toxins through sweat (and a little tears!).
I ask you this: would you go running in 120 degree heat?
We have instructors who are: RMT, RN Nurse, Yoga therapists, Thai Massaage Therapists, Touch for Health Therapists. What does this mean to you? If you have an injury, we pay special attention to you! After all, it is YOUR yoga practice and not our time to practice a routine.
That said, our class that is called "The Practice" was designed as a discount class for you ($8 +hst) because it is taught by our Teacher Trainers, so it is their time to practice teaching yoga for you.
I am always looking for ways to bring yoga to YOU. I have created a book to help get relief from the signs and symptoms of PMS (such as back and groin pain, irritability, cramps, bloating). Anyone can do the routine, it is a great way to open the energy pathways in the body.
Click the link to purchase my new book: Living La Vita Yoga PMS Flow. Get relief from cramps, bloating and back pain with this combination of yoga asana, energy medicine, acupressure holding points and breathing techniques.
I like to do this routine when I feel stiff in the morning. Available to download to iPad too!!!

Discover Yoga! It's for everyone. People of all ages and fitness levels can benefit from doing yoga.
Yoga improves balance, coordination, flexibility and strength. It stimulates all of the internal organs, calms the nervous system, restores and rejuvenates the body. Yoga reduces stress and makes you feel better both physically and emotionally.
Yoga is beneficial to weight loss, stress reduction and recovery from injury.

Finding the right yoga teacher can be a daunting task. You may have friends that love a certain teacher, a certain style of yoga or the ambiance of a certain yoga studio. It can all become quite confusing and a bit overwhelming.
When looking for a yoga teacher, be sure to investigate the yoga studio first. Ask questions of the yoga instructor such as:
Q: How many class do they teach a week?
Q: How long have they been teaching?
Q: Where did they study yoga?
Q: Are they certified with a governing body?
Q: Do they practice yoga themselves?
Q: Do they teach a variety of yoga classes/ specialize in a particular style of yoga?
Q: Do they follow a set routine?
Q: Do they know how to deal with limitations and injuries?
Q: Where is the studio?
Below, I have included an article by the Yoga Alliance (a governing body that sees it's members adhere to strict guidelines on ethics and re-certification) that addresses some of the common questions listed above.
